No. I couldn't finish this one.
Disappointment. Was hoping for an erotic, enticing, love story.
Can't believe all the attention this book has gotten. Poorly written, immature, boring.
I think this was more of a love story, unbelievable at that. The main character seemed shocked when everything was so upfront. I really couldn't stand her.
I didn't like the performance. It took me a long time to get use to her voice. I felt she was whining throughout the entire story.
Probably with the performer.
Yes. I made read the next in the series.
Someone with a softer, lower voice to fit the mood better. She sounded like a geeky teenager, not a young woman. No humor where it should of been, no awe where it should have been. A pretty flat unsexy performance.
It was o.k.
I had heard a lot about this book and was anxiously waiting for it. Just a bit of a let down, seemed like a cheap romance novel and the performance didn't do anything to help.
Possibly the worst narrator I have come across. Very difficult and annoying to listen too.
anything by a different author or narrator. Something with a bit of depth and fun
None. I have no interest in this second rate novel
After a lot of hype, a mediocre novel with a bad narrator. Waste of a credit
This was my first audio book because I wanted to listen when I am driving and not having too much time to read the actual book. I am hooked now... The book is very good adn the narrator is awesome! So much passion and so many emotions. Love it! I can't wait to know what is going to happen through the whole trilogy.
Christian Grey of course :-) Because he is kinky, good looking, rich and bossy.
She has a very sensual voice and great at describing emotions with her voice.
There are too many moments worth of remembering .
I didn't like the book. I didn't like the narration, I foolishly got all three books at once. I listened to the first one, if I stop there I can tolerate that as an ending. The thought of continuing any more of that annoying monotony makes me need a nap. I was allowed to return the second and third but for some reason not the first. Bleh, lesson learned.
I dont kow if its better but I loved it! Listened to it on my way to work and home every day!
Oh there are so many!
The narration was so bad, it sounded like a 14 year old trying to be soooo coy.
At least the rest of this series.
educated readers on doms and subs, if one was curious. showed how childhood /abuse atrocities created the character of Grey.
This book need to be READ, not told. Kept listening, hoping for a story. And, the endless e-mail chatter, naming, to, from, date, time, was excruciating. that portion needed to be abridged for sure.
Ok. I get that this is a book with lots of drama, emotional highs and lows. Lots of dialogue repetition! I think the book could be 50 shades shorter without the constant repetition. After listening to book one i have to say i smiled a couple of times when the couple enjoyed themselves outside of the playroom; and felt the disappointment the characters felt.
This is my first exposure to this type of book... I kind of felt, well get on with it, because i was loosing interest.
I do need to see how it ends and may buy future books, but i'll probably take a break.
I'm seeing some growth of character towards the end... we'll see how it turns out and whether i can complete the trilogy or not. I' d almost prefer to have someone tell me rather than going through the long, repetitive dialogue to get to the end.
This must be one of the WORST narrations I have ever heard. It was painful to listen.
Terrible reading, awful tones.
