She ruins Christian Grey's voice making him sounds like a really an old fat slow man, with very little energy. An odd Rich phony person. Makes for a humorous narration.
Not use such a old slow "phony" odd unreal voice, for Mr Grey.
This is a great humorous story. It does have it's dark side, but with the voices Becca Battoe uses, I can't take it too seriously. I have read this book series at least 25 possibly more times, and never imagined the male voices so unreal.
I loved this book, especially the Audio version! This second book had a plot and it was very enjoyable to the point that I had to finish the series!
It made the book very enjoyable!
I loved the book and could not wait to read the finally book.
This has got to be the most trite, silly story I've ever listened to. The writing is so one dimensional, pedestrian and juvenile. The Story of O or anything by Anais Nin would be far better books to read on this subject than this drivel. The character of Anastasia Steele is so oblivious, immature, self-righteous without a shred of world experience, stunted in how human nature works. Yes, I understand she's a neophyte, but my God!!!! She is beyond unrealistic with an overbearing sense of entitlement and just plain stupid. Any man worth his testosterone would have thrown her out of his house the minute he found out she went snooping in his personal effects. Time and time again, she is told why she should not do something and then she goes ahead and does it and has to have Gray come save her behind. She never learns anything. And if I have to listen to another bloody "Holy" anything, I'm going to scream!! And someone shoot the stupid goddess and subconscious twit she keep referring to. This should have been shredded better by E.L. James' editor--was this mess self published?
Anyone but this twit.
Becca Battoe contributes to my disdain for this book. She sounds like a whiny Valley Girl... Horrible, horrible, horrible!!!!
Disinterest. The Story of O is the standard on this subject and this drivel pales in comparison.
I will never read another book by E.L. James. Whoever they are, they need to go back to school and take some creative writing courses. They should also learn that if they can't surpass a standard, to leave the subject alone.
The continuation of 50 Shades of Grey. This book was great and I finished it in two days because I couldn't turn the audio off. Now I am listening to the third book.
Honestly it was a little hard to imagine a guy acting this way. Not that i wouldn't mind a guy acting like this for me. The brief insight about his emotional maturity made it a bit more believable though so I guess I wouldn't change it too much. The cliffhanger part was a bit too predictable, not sure how I would change it though.
The story could have ended there for me, though I'm glad it continued.
Anastasia of course.
I want to say a more believable guys reaction but then again that might not make it romantic enough ;). So I will say given Christian's background as explained I think it's good as is.
I would have liked this and the other story to give some glimpse into what Christian was thinking at times. It was also a bit long winded like the last one but again the email banter was humorous.
A better book than the first one. The story line is getting expanded and keeps getting interesting. Worth listening to.
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
Once again before buying this book I read the reviews. I saw alot of negative reviews, there were hints that the audio wasn't as good as should have been expected. I didn't have any issues with this though, loved the story and the narration. More hearts and flowers in this book. My most memerable moment was when Grey did the 180 and dropped on his knees to assume the role of a sub!, I was left wondering wtf? But of course he is 50 shades of fucked up!, Looking forward to the conclusion looks like Ana is going to be the damsel in distress!
the love story was breathtaking. makes one want that deep complete love. the compromises, the earning of trust, finally giving oneself to a person completely.
I do not care for her trying to immulate a mans sultry voice. became irritating. she is my only complaint.
I enjoyed the story.
Yes, she did a good job with all the characters. But Anastasia sounded like she was a 15 yr. old.
This will make you tired of pornography.
Love (Most definitely). Truth, and understanding.
I like how Anna loves Christian unconditionally. Although, he loves her just as much, he has a lot of issues, baggage as Anna puts it in the story, and I don't think even I would trust most of what he says to her at times.
I also like how he finally comes clean with Anna, giving her something more to think about on whether she can trust him to stay devoted to her.I like how he proposes to her, that took not only her by surprise, but me as well.
Also, although it frightened me, I like how he disappeared off radar while flying the Charlie Tango on a business trip. That had me on the edge of my seat waiting along side of Anna and Christian's family as they waited news of his hopeful return.
There are so many scenes that I loved about this story that I"m sure I've missed explaining here.
But I liked how E.L. James ended it with Anna's old boss out to get the sexy Mr. Grey. It makes me dread the wait until I can download the last book.
I think that would have to be where she gave him the key chain that lite up and gave him the answer that he so longed waited for.
I'm glad that E.L. James didn't give us a glance early on about what she was thinking of giving him for his birthday.Although, there were many favorites to this story, this one was the best...I think. lol.
Yessss! Even with my confession of every day life getting in the way of listening or even reading this story, I found myself completely immersed in these two books, and I can't wait to get back to listening to the last book.
Only what I said before in my comment of the first book, and that I highly recommend reading or listening to this awesome trilogy.
