I found this series to be written poorly, performed badly, and the content to be presented in a demeaning fashion. I am not, however, put off by the sexual content or even the type of sexual interchanges, however I am disgusted by the portrayal of them and the writing that is quite childish. The performance does not help. The content replete with "Oh My's" made it difficult for me to finish listening to this . . . it took me months. But I hate to leave books unfinished. Clearly all the fuss is about introducing the pruder portion of society to the goings on in the vast non-prude portion of society. Congratulations on dumming down the BDSM world for the rest of modern America. I found this dreadful.
Someone who can read without monotone.
Disappointment peppered with disgust (in the writing, performance).
This applies to all three books.
Definitely would not do another E. L. James book. The story is very thin and while the sex scenes are intriguing for a while, even they get tedious and boring after too many,
However Becca Battoe does a wonderful job of reading them.
yes, for sure.
None of them. Anastasia is clueless and Christian is calculating.
Anatasia and Christian. Maybe the author could make something meaningful out of the roomate Kate, her brother and her boyfriend.
I stuck with this series through the second book because people told me it got better. They were wrong.
I love the book; however the narrator is terrible. Very monotone. This book is full of emotion and should be read that way. I'm finding it very difficult to listen and may have to resort to buying the book to finish it.
Very monotone; no emotion.
This was by far one of the better audiobooks. I put this up their with Midnight in the Garden. Both were good listens.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
She did Christen Grey very well.
When Grey realized his old way was not working and he had to change to keep Anna.
Overlook the negative reviews. This trilogy is fantastic and the narrator did a great job!
first book.. what a mess.second book- MaMa Porn third book was the best of the three, it had a nice follow up and a good ending
the sister was the most irrtating of all
If you like Mama Porn with very limited expression other than "Oh My'' this this is for you, however, I was board, and I found these characters very irritating. The constant nagging from the leading lady was ridiculous, after each sex seen. This was just too much drama. Please do not make a movie.
Yes, Becca Battoe has a wonderful voice and a great narrator.
None that I can think of right now.
When Christian and Ana got back together (beginning of the book)
To have had more than one reader, The narrator could barely read Anastasia's parts. How could anyone assume she could read Christian's part effectively? So much of the essence was lost, the moments totally missed due to the lack of tonage from the female narrator.
She could not effectively do the male characters nor the other female parts, I'm totally flabbergasted that it could not have been denoted before release. It makes me feel you do not care about the listeners or you were in such a rush for release that you just didn't care about quality of delivery.
Becca sounded winded on many occassions throughout the book, not to mention rushed.
I have purchased two other books and was highly pleased; this one here is a true let down and disappointment.
Anger, sadness and untold disappointment. Why untold, because I really wanted to ask for a refund, but I didn't.
On second thought can I have a refund? Laughing but very serious...
for me yes it was easier to follow and the narrator is wonderful
Loved how she tried to incorporate multiple voices for the multiple characters
yes and I listened to it 3 times
