You must listen to/read this trilogy. I couldnt wait to get to the next book. Twists, turns, thrills and excitement right to the very end.
O M G. Husband beware. No rest tonight.
The reader was okay, I could think of other readers who would have done this book justice.
Nothing. A whole different story.
She could have written a love story that doesn't set feminism back to the last century.
She sounded like a ditsy teenager.
It made me angry that so many people would celebrate this dysfunctional and at times literally abusive relationship.
So if this improves your sex life ... Great. Don't let your daughters read it. I refused to even finish it because I will not celebrate domestic abuse. This is the typical beauty and the beast story. Unfortunately, that never works out for the woman. It was unrealistic.
Add more to the story.
Book 3 was a huge bomb. I hated the Epilogue. It ruined the entire series for me.
I do not think this book is appropriate for anyone. The content is superficial. Too many discriptive words for what is basically S&M
The actual reading of the story was fine, it was the CONTENT of the material. It is porn.
Disappointment. I kept hoping for a story line.
If I wanted to read porn, like most adults I know where to find it. This book was featured as some great literal. Plenty of discriptive words but sexual. Not for me.
A painter who reads and has three boys and four dogs and a d.h.
Fifty shades of grey is a good read, though perhaps overrated by the media. It keeps the reader wanting more and that is why I downloaded the next two editions!
too bad anna finds her dream man but he seems to only want to use her.
The flight back to seattle from georgia!
Personally, I would not wish to experience that type of relationship, even it meant new cars, clothes, etc.
This is a book you THINK is going to take you to a very dark place.....but it takes to to a place some with so MUCH MORE! I loved the innocent Ana, and the dark mysterious Christian! It gets the blood pumping and was surprised to see so many bad reviews, but then noticed many were men, so not surprised. This is not a get in there and do the business book, it has a story line and I think most men do not have the patience for anything but "the good stuff". Plus you need to have a mind that likes to think of possibilities....this really is more for woman than men. Although if a guy were to ACTUALLY PAY ATTENTION TO THE STORY, they might learn a thing or two of what their woman might like. Remembering though that most woman could not be like Ana and almost all men could not have Christians stamina lol I think many woman would love the occasional spanking ;) to get all caveman on them here and there, but this book also gives an sweet twist to ordinary vanilla. I loved it, and enjoyed all 3! So did the hubby, but more for the effect it had on me than because he read it (he too did not have the patience and kept asking when do we get to the good stuff lol)
Just being able to have my hands free and relax with my eyes closed. Audio books are the way to go!
It was different! I usually like romance but this was a romance with a wild side,
At first I wasnt sure about her voice but by the second chapter I loved it. It helped me picture the people in the story.
The whole book was incredible. I loved it.
Never thought I would like a story like this, but dont knock it til you try it. What an awesome book! Now on to book 2 in the series. I cant wait!!!!!!
The story is ooooookay at best, senseless at other times. Some of the worst writing I've ever read. Not much above a VC Andrews novel and I gave those up when I was 16.
Poor Becca... she worked with what she was given.
Miss Steele... and her inner-goddess... and her subconscious...
I wish I could brainwash myself.
Educator, mother and avid reader!
FSG is a diffinitely memorable listen. In fact I am on my third pass!
The BeautySeries by Ann Rice
Becca Battoe has a talent for languages. She enthralls the reader with her voice, inflictions and acting ability.
Yes, and I did. In one weekend.
I can not wait to see what E.L. James has in mind for the next novel/series.
