I would recommend the book, but the audible I downloaded kept stopping. I never even got 30 minutes into the book that I remember. I did read the book on an e reader and liked it better than the first.
I would recommend this to most friends. It is so much more than sex..you won't forget Ana or Christian.
When Christian is kneeling on the floor asking Ana what he should do...afraid she will leave.
Both...it just touches me in a profound way, all three books do.
There is alot of sex, even more LOVE. Sex is a communication conduit for these two. The deep feeling between them is what strikes you to the core, their profound connection. It affirms what a miracle love is, and how lucky (and rare) it is to find your other half. It makes me intensely happy to think it could be
getting anxious to read a book that interests me read this to see why my wife says I need to be more like grey
I love the Twilight series... I love the Fifty Shades Trilogy... I love the idea of a man so mysterious, powerful and untouchable yet so in love with ONE! Willing to do anything for her!
Of course I would! This trilogy is eye opening and greatly written. I was never into reading books with such graphic adult content and the intense sexual parts made me blush. However, I couldn't put it down. I had to keep going. It possessed me and I soon became obsessed with the story... Awesome Trilogy!
I liked how it was so like twilight but with characters that were real not vampires.
She brings to life the Characters with her different tones.
Yes, I laughed a lot. I didn't cry. I got squeamish during the graphic parts.
Highly recommended. Will listen to over and over again... Very well written. Two thumbs up...
the fact that so much is left up to the readers imagination, it really made me get into it.
all of the suspense!
she just seems as though she could really be Anastasia.
EXACTLY LIKE THE BOOK.........do I need to explain
The story was very interesting...a "page turner".
Anyone, frankly. Becca portrayed Ana as flighty, immature, boppy, annoying and ungrateful. There was never the right inflection. When there needed to be a sense of urgency her voice emitted ignorance and when it needed to sound mature and understanding, it sounded airheaded. The thought kept popping up that there is no way a man like Christian would stick around something who pouted and whined at the degree to which Becca portrayed her.
I'm shocked E.L. James continued to use her. Terrible terrible terrible.
Becca Battoe ruined the books for me.
More creativity by the author...less graphic detail....yes, I said less. Although, the 'scenes' are the major draw to this series, there is the a fairly decent plot that improves as the story moves forward. I found that in the first book I was floored, and then "wow'd", by the 'juicy parts', but as I progressed through the series, it really became overkill and I was even desentized to it. I'm not sure if desenitized is the right word, but you get the point. ;) There is also a tremendous amount of repetition of certain phrases and depecitions. As someone put it in another review, it's almost as though the author has a bucket with a bunch of different phrases in it and pulls one out when at a loss for words. I do have to say however, that it does lend a slight bit more credibility to the charaters since we all have our favorite expressions that we use repeatedly. I'm just not convinced that was the intention of the author.
Many YA books/series. Its an easy read, its fun and it moves quickly. Its lacks the literary prowess of more advanced books. This is the perfect summer read, that will likely do well with the traditional box office follow-up...although, I'm intrigued as to how they will be able to fully depict the 'story' without disappointing the viewers and keep it to an R rating!!! Ha!
Literally, no. I set the naration speed faster, but I guess that's more a personal preferance. As for the narration itself...this series was my first time listening to an audiobook, so it was very strange at first, especially hearing a woman do a man's voice. By about a third of the way into the first book I was used to it and it was easy to get lost in the book. The narrator does a good job creating a difference 'voice' for each character and uses the same voice throughout the entire series. I imagine that's not an easy task!
I know it will be made into a movie...BUT I can't wait to see how. There is so much in this book that I imagaine is going to be very difficult to bring to the theaters as an R rating, while staying true to book(s). I'm no director or producer, but as someone who read & enjoyed the books, I am quite skeptical as to how good the movie(s) will be. As for the stars...Channing Tatum is the only one who comes to mind, but that may be a bit too cliche. Christian will just have to be someone hot, mysterious and very "50".
Near the top, but I'm just getting started on audiobooks
Having only one person try to voice all characters (because she deepens her voice for the men, the male characters tend to sound "off" on emotional tone/like they're kind of dumb)
No, except within this trilogy
I already knew the book was too long for that - I went for completeness of the text over speed of narration
Interesting story about a weak woman
Not sure. Some of the readers of Lisa Scottalini (spelling?) are much better. She sounds like a 13 year old and her imitations of men and other women are terrible.
No. The printed version is much better.
i have enjoyed this book . I hate to see the ending. The story line was great. The audio version was easy to listen too.
When Christian asks Anna to marry him. When she tries to pay ransom, and when they have their first child.
It did both.
Hope more books are published by this author.
