Every single time there is dialogue, it's "mumbled" or "murmured". Not once do I remember hearing a confident verb to describe speech, even from Grey who is touted as someone who is constantly in control.
Admittedly, I probably have no business listening to this as I am a guy, but I was intrigued that a book had gotten so much support in so little time. I was curious; I wasted a credit. I only managed to get through the first half of part 1 and promptly deleted it from my phone.
Why did the main character have to talk like a 15 year old girl? Nothing sexy about child abuse.
probably, I'm no prude. This was just childish and belittling. I am amazed so many women find this enticing.
Not sure. I did not read the print edition.
When Ana leaves Christian.
Her vocal range and ability to perform both male and female voices.
I wish there was a set of 3 companion books, written from Christian's perspective!
Sexy, Frustrating, Emotional
I thought the Thomas Tallis moment was the most powerfully written part of the whole book. It was beautiful.
The performance could have been better if they had someone else read the book. It was terrible. Her accents weren't great and she had too much sarcasm in her tone. It was like listening to a valley girl for 20 hours.
Stockings and Bondage?
Great book, terrible performance.
I never read instruction manuals. I also never read reviews before making a purchase, taking a trip or reading a book. My justification for this was that I did not want my perception to be influenced by other people’s experience. Since everything seems to happen for a reason, I guess this was my lesson to learn: sometimes it’s worth at least reading what other people have to say. That being said, I don’t really understand how publishers choose what content to publish, this has no literary value, no intellectual value, not worth the paper is printed on. I sincerely felt that my IQ dropped to negative values, by listening to it.
Thinking fast and slow
Not in this life time.
Not even worth discussing.
How can this garbage can even get published ?
I can't believe the reader was so dry!!! How could you be with such a provocative story? I think it would and should be re-read with one of the other fantastic readers at audible. The second book is worse... but I love the story..
No... i hate that because I wanted to get the 3rd audio....
I guess this book is for unsatisfied married women who have no libido, and need a boost.
The narrator got really annoying after the first few chapters. Her narration really made the main character out to be someone who is not appealing, rather than some sexy animal.
I really want to remove this book from my library. It's embarrassing for people to think I like this book and if so, I'm must be a pervert. Please take it out of my library.
The narration is horrible..I got 5 disks into it and gave it up and borrowed the book from a friend. Granted the writing isnt the best but is sounds like she is reading it vrs acting the part. You can't tell when she is talking out loud vrs having a conversation with her subconscious. I cant see what he sees in her as she has no charm or personally or sex appeal that translates via the narration. Save your money and borrow the book.
the story, the twists and ups and downs, the erotic and innocence, the torment of them both trying to compromise
the realization of them both wanting what each other could give
i love audio over just reading the book. i read the book as well but the audio touches a difference sense.
The Compromise of More...
I love the story! I kept hold of me form the beginning!
Becca's voice grew on me. It's a bit of a "valley girl" sound that took some getting used to
