Yes I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. I have heard about sub and doms before but did not really know much about the subject. The audiobook is educational and the love story is very compelling.
I liked the love story and the relationships the 2 main characters had with friends and family.
No I have not listened to any of Becca Battoe's other performances. But she made the story very believable and the characters in the book come alive.
I liked the 1st audiobook so much I had to get the remaining 2 audiobooks and enjoyed these 2 just as much as the 1st.
I didn't like the reader at all. She sounds like a spoiled teenager does when she talks to her mother... or maybe a valley girl. The reading wasn't believable so it was hard to listen to.
I love reading. Its the moments that in my mind I'm somewhere else.
This is my 3rd time listening to the book. Love the book. Can't put it down.
At the graduation where he is wearing the famous tie. OMG!!
Yes it was!!!
First let me start off by saying I truly enjoyed this book, the author took me on a journey through Ana and Christian's love story which I found profoundly moving. After reading the reviews for the controversial topic of BDSM, I thought I would find it distasteful and offensive, but the sexual relationship between Ana and Christian was handled both tastefully and it gave this reader an insight into a world that I have no prior experience in. I've enjoyed this story so thoroughly that I purchased the second and third book prior to reaching the halfway point in this one. I look forward to reading the continuing story of Ana and Christian and as I am a true romantic I am hoping for a happy ending for them both, I sure hope so because I am still reeling from the ending in Fifty Shades of Grey. This is truly a story for lovers of romance who can handle it with an open mind.
The erotic portion was delivered well. It wasn't too much but Mr. Grey was nuts!
The ending was a twist.
The narrator had a tough time trying to making the letters and emails sound interesting.
I must admit the book did gain my attention because I wanted to know the plot. It took a really long time getting there.
This novel was trash. I am not offended or scandalized by sex. It was the writing that offended me. Using the same words over and over and over and over again. Sometimes in concurrent sentences. The narration was pitiful--a whiney airheaded voice. Not that she had much material to work with.
I think this book might be enjoyed by anyone who can overlook the horrible writing. I read the reviews before downloading this, and thought, "The haters are just literary snobs, or prudes." Nope. It's just that bad.
The bad writing. I wasn't expecting a literary masterpiece, but come on! Every other phrase is, "Oh, my!" or "Holy (insert random expletive)!" And, did she really use medulla oblongata...more than once? I swear if something jolted her from her "reverie" one more time I was going to scream. The protagonist is irritating and moronic. There's innocent and then there's idiotic. I've never read fanfiction before and thanks to this, I never will again. Please save your credit. You have been warned.
No. Christian sounded like Ana imitating a man. Aside from that, I can't fault her. She's horrible, but I blame the source material. There's nothing she could have done differently, aside from turning down this job.
Not. A. One.
yes, it's a well written, erotic love story.
no, I do not like her valley girl sound. I want to get the next Fifty Shades book, but I'm not sure I can stand her voice through another one.
I Loved this book, and the entire trilogy for that matter. I do agree that the narrator does throw you off a bit, at first, but if you are able to keep an open mind and loose yourself in the words then you too will enjoy this. There are some overused phrases but again, keep in open mind. I highly recommend this book, don't let the comments about the narrator discourage you. Take the risk, you wont regret it!!
The love story.
The voice, didn't perform it well, and too many times all the voices blended and were bland.
Not really, a bit too repetitive.
