I plan on re-listen to the all three books in the fall because had such a great story line.
All of the main one Christina and Mr. Gray.
I think that the 3rd book is the best on of them all, but you have to read all 3 of the books to really understand and get the story line. If you are one of the people that only read first book and did not like it you really did not get just of what the really story was about. Also the person (Becca) the reading does a wonderful job.
Sometime and sometime not
You just need to READ the books!
Someone who's never read other romance books.
I'm a firm beliver that everyone deserves a second chance. So yes but not any of the sequels.
Anybody else!! Although book is written to portray the point of view of a very unexperienced virgin (that's what I got) and the author did a good job of sounding vague and naive.
I get what characters author was trying to create but I was more interested in the secondary characters (roomate and the brother)!!
Even though I read the reviews warning you not to waste a credit on this book yet several co-workers recommended the books so I downloaded the preview on my kindle. And those first three chapters were okay but dear lord I can't finish it!! It's a 3 part download and I'm didn't make it throught the first one. I have read my share of bad books from beginning writters, which granted did take me serveral tries and months to fininsh. This is the first book I have emailed Audible hoping I can get a refund!! I love reading and dabble in all genres. I can only describe this book as if someone was watching a bad pron and writting what they see and making up words to go with the expresion of the characters. All I can say is that I tried, really tried hard to stick with it but couldn't. Happy readings ....
I wouldn't read another book... bad writing(so infantile) and the voice was so annoying I couldn't get through the first book(made mistake of downloading all before listening to first)..I wish I would have read other reviews first...... the "oh, MYs) and "holy cows" were just too much....also the "inner goddess" remarks...
written like an adult and had more adult vocabulary
anyone......the "Christian voice" was worse........
There must be a lot of frustrated women out there who have never read erotica to find this enjoyable....
i thought i would lose my mind hearing every single word including the time, date, to & from of the boring emails. And if i never hear "oh my" again, it will be too soon.
annoyance that i wasted a credit buying it.
The story moves rather slow but what ruins this one is the narrater who sounds like a 13 year old who was allowed to read to her class at school. Couldn't even finish the first book as listening to the narrator was just too annoying.
Just came off too immature and the tone of her voice was not professional sounding. Her sentencs would trail off and then her voice would get gravely. It really got on my nerves. First time a reader has affected me this way and I have listened to well over 50 narrators. Was disappointed I could not get through the whole book.
The reader was annoying, the superlative descriptions were overdone, the plot lame--I pictured the writer thumbing through a Thesaurus to use every descriptive word imaginable, even a few French words, and then saying "Jeez". Please...............
Combining all three books into one. (I cannot bear to read the last book.....too bored with it all. I really don't care what happens in the end.)
Too much drama in reader's delivery.
I seriously doubt editing would help.
Waste of time.............the sex was good but even that became mundane.
No, but I would continue the entire series.
The loss of Anna's virginity.
Christians heartbreak at the end of the first book.
When Anna summoned the courage to leave.
I love Christians growing adoration for Anna and his new found ability to express it.
Yes, the story was greatly depicted.
Anna and Christian of course.
Yes, Battoe did a great job.
The last part of the book, when Anna realized she can't be everything Christian needed and wanted as a Sub.
Yes of course I would.
The novel theme and Anastasia character.
Not have a Valley girl reader.
Yes, it is a very interesting subject.
It is too bad that this poorly written novel is so popular.
Say something about yourself!
I will admit I only purchased this because of all the hype. I've never read this type of book and didn't think I would actually enjoy it... surprise, surprise... I thought it was really good. I found myself caught up in the story and the characters and want to know more about them and their past. The book does have some explicit sex scenes which I admit I fell asleep during some of them (lol, guess I'm just old). All the sex in the world would not have made this a good book if it didn't have characters that you actually start caring about.
Regarding reviews it seems like this is a no or go book... I've seen a lot of 1 star reviews on Amazon, GoodReads, etc. and I've also seen just as many 5 star reviews. I guess you either love it or hate.
I have already purchased the 2nd book and look forward to reading it.
