The voice of the narrator was the most annoying voice ever. Drove me nuts. The content was gross and monotonous. I'll never choose another book just because it is a New York Times best seller again.
Less sex scene details and more story line.
Totally detracted from the book. I couldn't stand her voice. Valley girl voice. Ugh!!
80% of the sex scenes. I normally like that part of books but too much in this book
Unfortunately I did not read what this book was and just bought the first 2 based on Audible best seller-- this book is a cheap roamance novel , erotica with little or no story line-- extremely disappointed, and sorry I bought the second before reading the first, defintely not interested in the hird
Write an interesting story with some plot--
yes, the reading was fine
It had no redeeming qualitites
I do not understand how Amazon can publish this kind of material without some serious warnings. Careful not to allow this into the hands of young adults/teens.
omg, this book is so good, couldnt put it down!!!
of course Grey himself, but Anna was just as good
After all the hooplah I found this to be shocking boring and predictable. The narrator sounded very California girl and even whiny at times. I frankly couldn't finish the book.
Could not keep me interested, particularly the droning on and on with the emails being read between the characters. The responses of the female lead were extremely repetitive, such as "Geez!" and "Holy Crap" over and over.
Different narrator and some really interesting developments in the story.
Emails and repetitive female responses
Will not read this author again
First, I really don't understand what all the hype is about. The writing was average. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't all that great either. The story was okay. Yes, there is erotic content, but is that why everyone is buying this? There is much better writing out there that is also stimulating, if that's the goal in reading this book. I was sadly disappointed that this wasn't the "page turner" I had expected.
Second, the narrator was terrible. Her voice, inflection, tone, pronunciation; all of it was off. It was almost painful to hear her read. Normally a narrator's voice fades away into the story, but in this case the story wasn't good enough to get past it.
Third, I have never returned a book before, in print or electronic, but I returned this one.
What can I say... The story line would have been great if it didn't drag on and on and on and on. The performance was awful. It put you in mind of listening to teenage valley girls talk. The character Anna is a mindless idiot. Buy this book at your own risk. I've read the other reviews and thought "hey it can't be that bad". YES IT IS....Don't know what the hype is about. Maybe it's the sex scenes....Now that is the only part of the book that was worth 1 star.
Yes I was not impressed by the performance
Not in this Lifetime.
Yes, it's easy to become attached to the characters in the story
Brittish classical literature meets today's sex scene
No, couldn't tell you
No extreme reaction, I have both read the books and listen to them on audible and while the characters voices sounded different in my head I think the story was told well and it's a fair representation of the times we live in.
"Wuthering Heights" meets "Jane Eyre" in modern times....this is probably the kind of stories the Bronte sisters would be writting if they were alive today!
poorly written and boring.
The poor writing. Every once in awhile the authors throws in a big word, but overall immaturish and boring.
Sounded like she was 10. Immature voice...distracting.
anger at how ridiculous this girl was!!
this is the worst audio production i've listened to to date. and the story is pretty weak as well. if you like harlequin, this may be for you. but o'd get the print copy
