I liked the readers enunciation and voice, which is also important in an audio selection. The reader was able to do a very crediable transition from male to the female parts.
Probably but I am curious about the balance of the triology.
I like the narrator
NO. I definetly need to take breaks
Written book, yes. Audiobook, no.
Let's be honest, the sex scenes are what we have all been reading this book for, followed closely by the giddy feeling of pretending we are this young woman being swept off her feet.
This woman knows nothing about expression, cadence, or which words to emphasize as she reads. Completely ruined the book. What idiot selected her and thought she had any talent for a book like this? She reads like she is expressing an eight year old girl, not a woman experiencing a sexual awakening.
My wife and I tried to listen to this on a road trip. We couldn't make it more than 30 minutes into the book. Simply put the narration was horrible. She sounds like a teenager reading a book in front of her class for the first time. Her diction is weird. Her delivery halting. The way she over-pronounces her "t"s and hammers all the wrong words drove us batty.We are going to read the book(s) on our Kindles and forget this ever happened.As an audio product.. this is terrible.
The fantasy, taking me to a place I would never have gone sexually...I liked too, that it was erotic, with out getting into real s & m...that I could not have endured.
The development of the relationship
I thought the performance was well done.
It made me dream!!!
Can't wait to get the next one~
Narrator to start. Better storyline altogether.
Gabra Zackman, Cynthia Halloway, Loreli King, Marguerite Gavin or Tavia Gilbert.
A couple of the S&M scenes. Way too many for audio especially with the lack of talent by the narrator.
The critics like this?!?! I should have know it would have been horrid then!! This was the Twilight series in XXX form. The narrator was as painful to listen to as the plot. It mirrored Twilight in almost every aspect but with S&M. If you are determined to explore 50 Shades then I highly recommend you purchase a hard copy to read. At least you can skim the pages because its not worth enduring the agony of this performance. I was not impressed at all. If you are a sadist looking for torture and pain this is the book for you.
I don't know if I could listen to another Becca book doing a story line such as this. I think she is great at representing a young girl/woman and their current inflections and attitudes and responses. Didn't like her at first but she got better as the book went on but I didn't think represented a good presentation of Grey.
Reformed Tom Boy
The writing was average and predictable. The imagery was cliché and the characters were flat.
Her voice was annoying. It went up like a valley girl and moaned at the end of each sentence like a teenager. What's worse, her pathetic attempt at a male voice made Grey laughable instead of sexy.
Save your credits.
I am not sure anything could have made this book better. the writing was horrible and the narrator was even worse.
This has got to be the worst narration of a book that I have ever heard. At first I thought it was just the epic fail of the masculine voice, but as I very painstakingly tried to continue listening I discovered it was just the narrator in entirety that I did not like.
I tried to feed into the media hype and I should have listened to my gut telling me that this was just bad. I wasted a credit on this horrible listen!

It wasn't all smut..it's actually a good story of love...
no and she was pretty good. Would have to say one of my favorites now..I will seek out her other work.
made me hot...
I really like that there was a story behind all the sex...actually quite good.
top of the chain when it come to romance novels
Anistasisa and Christian are both good characters
I liked how she tried to do the man's voice. I had no problem with her Christian character. it was cute. not to manly and not to girly
make the film according to the book leave nothing out
I read some reviews that are not to friendly toward becca's rendition of Christian. I think she did a good job.
