Develop the characters.
She did an alright job...it's the material she was reading.
I wouldn't cut them I would develop them.
I don't normally write reviews but this one is an exception. It was boring and poorly written. What's all the hype about? I don't mind the nature of the book...it was just boring and the characters were poorly developed. Unfortunately, I already bought the other two book!
I couldn't give it more than 10 minutes of my life. Terrible story, bad performance, if I could give it less than 1 star I would.
No thank you.
All of them.
I loved reading the book but can not stand he narrator in this audio version. Super disappointed by that.
Not sure but someone who sounds older thank 12, the fluctuation this was read with was awful. I could not get past minute 5 and want to return this book.
A better ending
No I have not listened to Becca Battoe before, but she was very good!
I just had to listen to Fifty Shades of Grey to see what all the excitement regarding this book was about! All those hours of listening . . . to be let down with a crappy ending. I would rather have listened to a great mystery.
I have to agree with a lot of reviews. I just couldn't get into the book and I ended up giving up on it. I am really disappointed I wasted the credit on it. There just wasn't anything that gripped me to the story.
Her voice was very irritating.
disappointment and anger
I couldn't stand the main character in this book. She is too old and too educated to be as naive and stupid as she is. It made me hate the whole story. I mean, maybe if the author wouldn't of wrote about her thoughts it would of been better. If this book is made into a movie, I will never watch it.
I am a new listener to audio books and I am loving every moment of it!!
Love the intensity, and how the story starts to truly evolve.
I liked that Ana fought for what she wanted.
Everything!! She really did an amazing job!!
Yes! I cried when Ana did, I was mad when either Christian or Ana was. I felt like I was truly a fly on the wall.
I am going to be listening to this book again!! I can't wait for the movies!!! Super excited!!
Ack, I really wanted to like this novel. I had heard from others that it was not great, but I decided to give it a go.
The beginning was actually not bad. But at about 3/4 through the first part of the book, I felt like everything had rushed into this unrealistic relationship.
There should have been more character development and a slower take on their relationship. Basically more seduction was needed. I am all about some great sex scenes, which is why I purchase these types of books, but this just seemed like it was one date, then bam, they are doing these crazy trips to other cities to have sex.
I just started part 2 and decided to give up. Sorry EL James, take it slower next time and I will like this sort of novel.
If you like the premise of this type of book, I suggest "Bared to You" by Sylvia Day. So much better than this and almost the same type of characters.
No! Badly written. If you've watched 91/2 weeks and the Thomas Crown Affair you know that the entire book is based on both. For real erotica read: Sleeping Beauty trilogy
have another author write it.
I am just beginning to listen to this book. The story seems like it could be ok, but the reader is difficult to listen to.
I would have had someone else do the reading.
Not as I've heard the story. My friends have read the books, and seem to like it. I may try that instead.
I dislike the reading so much that I want to return this audiobook.
