I could not bear to listen! The worst book I've ever encountered. I plan to return it and get my credit back! What was all the "buzz" about on all the talk shows?
I will be honest I have not finished the book. The narration is fine but I just can't get into the story. I have no problem with the subject content. I just fined the whole thing a little boring and somewhat predictable. It's not bad, it's just not a book that could hold my interest.
Someone who craves the excitement of jejune soft porn and can ignore appalling writing and doesn't mind cringing if they do.
Sorry, I can't.
I downloaded this book to see what all the jokes and allusions were about. I like to be up on cultural phenomena. This was an embarrassing waste of time and I still don't know. Is their such a paucity of interesting sex writing out there that this is the best we can do? The few vocabulary words that were beyond the Third Grade reading level were repeated so often that it seemed like this author just learned what, say, "clamber" meant and used it whenever any character ambulated. Just awful. And the reader only added to the annoyance, voicing the characters and narrative with an Eighth Grade wonderment that was puzzling for any modern day 21-year-old. Is anyone this naive? Oh, my.
This was somewhat entertaining. I don't know how women think (just ask my wife!), but as a man, we don't think how beautiful a woman nearly every moment we are in someone's company. I tired of hearing how beautiful Christian was. We understand that he is one handsome guy!
As a story, there didn't seem to be much there. It felt like some cheap film trying to fill the gaps between love making. I read it to see what all the fuss was about. I will not be moving on to the next two installments.
the writing was repetitive and the plot itself is quite unhealthy
not much regarding the quality of the material she was given
it has a lot of funny, romantic, entertaining parts
It read like a high school romance novel.
Give more substance, something to bond and identify with! I'm a male and really became bored with it quickly. I tried to see it from the other side but failed.
The narrator was fine! Great to listen and imagine it unfolding.
Jose comes to mind!
I'm sure this type of story is appealing to some, I just didn't get it!
This voice from this young lady was to young sounding for me.
My husband loved the series.
Not for me. I just could see what all the talk was about.
But my husband loved it.
I did a little survey and most of my friends in my age group ( ladies )
were not impressed. I am 45.
This is really a short story. Girl like boy. Boy has great car. Boy wants kinky action from Girl. Girl gives it a try and fines she needs more . The end. Fifty Shades of Grey would have been better if it had a real story.
I would not read any books by this author.
Not sure did not read print that's why I got audio version
Christian of course
Still Christian grey
The entire book
Can't wait to hear book 2
Was so boring I could not finish. Perhaps the Story would have been ok without the female constantly saying "Oh MY". I could not continue to read mostly because of that.
