I'm not a fan of the romance genre, so I found Anna's character really annoying. And the way the narrator reads the character is grating (I'm not a fan of silly girls). But, this made the really hot parts of the book so much better. The way Becca gets really breathy and deep for Grey is intoxicating and worth enduring the inbetween parts of the book for.
This is the kind of book where you have to leave your sense at the door - this is an unrealistic fantasy world. I won't even go into the flaws in the themes in the book. I think E.L. James should stick to short erotic stories.
I recommend you suspend reality, curl up on the couch, endure the crappy romance and hold out for the fantastic hot scenes. Becca's reading of them makes the audiobook so much hotter than reading it yourself.
I loved this book. I couldnt put it down and now I have listened to them all. I am far from a teenager and I am a corporate manager. Quite a few of my friends are also very taken with the story. To the haters...lighten up. I guess you need to find some way to vent your sad frustrations by giving this best seller such scathing reviews. Many millions of women all over the world...not just teenagers are in love with the idea that is Christian Grey. We cannot all be illiterate, pubescent idiots!! In fact I dont think this book is suitable for teenagers at all!! We all have different tastes. Please recognize this. Fantastic book.
Erotic love story
Everyone thinks it's about BDSM, when in actual fact it is a truly romantic love story
She is amazing. I have only listened to the Fifty Shades Trilogy and she plays each part with a completely different voice. Loved it.
Everything. Laugh, cry, anger, broken heart, swoon, fall in love.
Good enough to hold ones attention.
the storyline invokes a host of unexpected emotions.
Not imitate a mans voice for one. The rest is ...... Absolutely PERFECT! Its like listening to scarlet Johannson or Gabrielle anwar.
Disbelief..shock ...........wtffffff ??...... geez ok im ready for more. Two things annoyed me immensely "my inner goddess" and "oh my" How did this retro babble make the grade.? Complete contrasts to the "F" word which she later expresses often leaving one confused about her character.
The book starts out at a slow pace and the temptation to stop listening in the beginning was there on occasion or two, However the elements that make up the story line unexpectedly stirs and stimulates the imagination subtly and sometimes startlingly, provoking and compeling one to forge ahead almost spellbound, Anxious to uncover whatever unfolds next and before you realize it youre addicted. The addiction is not the vanilla sex scenes but the contrast of Mr Greys seemingly diabolical character and the sweet innocence / ignorance of beautiful anna.... Theres just no way to resist reading books 2 and 3.
Have bought this but can't listen to it on my iPhone,,, I will just stick to iTunes from now on
Let me hear it
I will ditch the audible app and use iTunes, it much better to use
Not a bad story but a bit on the rude side. Hated the way each email was read out time date to from got a little frustrating after a while
Mmm makes u want to read book 2 so it worked
The scene were she met him hilarious
Loved the reader she was fabulous. Very enjoyable listening to her
It took me sometime to read this book because of the mixed review.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. Where is book2. Cant wait to readlisten to the next one.
The twisted fantasy love story
She narrated it well and switched well between characters. It felt like a movie.
I enjoyed the read, I kept an open mind
I am so glad I read this book BEFORE all the incredible hype that followed its publication. Yes it is flawed, yes those flaws are many but you know what - its a damn good story and the characters are so tortured they are riveting! I got the audio books ( got all three) because I loved the books - and all in all I am not sorry to have spent the credits.
Hey I hated the Bitch Troll as much as Anna I just wanted her to get hit by a big red bus!
Ahhhhhh - my one problem with this audio book was that the narrator was just so - so, I was not wrapped in her narration, and I can't say why. I guess I wanted .... more .... but It wasn't like I cringed through the whole book. - it was oookay.
worth having in your audio library.
It depends! I like both
I'm getting addicted!!!!! It's a cute and kinda dark mystery love story
She did good in Anastasia !!!!
Maybe another guy can perform grey??!! That would be good to listen to
Becca's narration was superb.
Becca brings the story to life. She does all the characters voices so well. Great job
Anna. She sounds like a really nice, easy going person. As long as Christian was in another country!
