Addicted to Audible since 2009
This book was very tame compared to the first two. After reading the first two, which were very intense, this one is a major let down and is just outright boring.
Bared to You
I hated her "guy" voice for Mr. Gray.
I really liked the first book while Darker was also pretty good but this was the worse by far. Not worth listening to unless you are like me and just have to finish a series before you could listen to anything else.
Yes, It was great being able to listen to the story being read to me while I worked around the house.
I loved the very exciting conclusion to the story and that all unanswered questions through out all three books were answered. I also LOVED that the epilog included the first chapter of the first book being retold from Christian's point of view.
All three of her readings of the Fifty Shades trilogy were very good through out.
Crop or Flogger?
This was one outstanding trilogy. I loved it start to finish. I hope E.L. James writes all three books from Christians point of view.
Not really, it wouldnt be the book it is if I changed things in it. I was that good with my creative imagination I would be an author myself.
The handcuff sex scene during their honeymoon and the fact that he was unhappy about the marks later on.
Irritating, dull, unexciting.
The reader of this series does the book injustice. If I hadn't read it first I never would have gotten past the first chapter of the narration. Why, oh why could the producers not have found a better narrator?
Yes its a good series with a good story line
I like how the end brough it all together
When Anna leaves Christen in Book two, you can see the boy and the man he will become by the end of the series.
I really enjoyed the epilog at the end of this book it lets you see what was going on in Christen mind in each book, and answers a lot of unanswer question we the reader/listeners offen have.
It made me laugh and feel sad....no crying
I'm still listening for the soft porn that everyone has been talking about :)
Over all its a good love story and I enjoyed listening to it
Yes, because I liked it
Reading the first chapter from Christian's perspective
Christian's view point (at the very end of the book)
When he realized that what happened between him and Mrs Robinson was wrong
Great series, I wouldn't mind reading it again but doing it from his perspective
I love to read, so I would have enjoyed the print too. But, this audio was great.
Christian Grey, Ana Steele
When Christian talked to Ana about little blimp.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I love happy endings and this is really sweet. Ana really comes into her own in this book and she is a strong, loving wife.
I am starting my second time through on this series. It still leaves me breathless. Such erotica but with a tender love story. Great ending (though I wish it would go on) with Christian finally happy. I would love to hear the whole story from Christian's point of view. The small excerpt we get tells a whole other story in a new and exciting way. This series is not only well written, but Becca Battoe did an amazing job! Her characters really came to life and I could see everything happening in my mind's eye. A truly amazing experience! I will read anything E. L. James writes.
The story is fabulous! The audio is NOT! I gave one star but it doesnt even deserve that. My favorite part is (Spoiler alert) where Christian is drunk and talk to Ana's tummy "And we have an invader in here". I'm quoting from the book since I couldn’t even finish this one.
I would never listen or purchase another book with Becca Battoe as the narrator, let me rephrase that, OH HELL NO! After listening to the first 2, I couldn't stomach the third narration. I had enough to last me a lifetime. Advice to Becca "RETIRE from doing audio books unless Random House is foolish enough to pay you to do another one, then take their money and run". I was so looking forward to the audio after reading the books, but I don’t even want them in my library anymore.
I thought Random House was going to fix it since they received horrible reviews about the audio (snort) but again, what was I thinking, they did all 3 using the same narrator even after the horrible reviews they got and continue to get on Audible, I can tell they are probably laughing all the way to the bank since I don't think I can get my money back which I would like very much. I can see how much Random House value the opinion of their listeners. Random House owes all their listeners a do over with another narrator for all 3 books or give us our money back, Do the right thing! I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like their money back.
I guess if you are hungry for S&M this is your book! There is absolutely NO STORY line, or should I say the one there is, you figure out in the first book in the first few chapters. I ignorantly bought all 3 of these Fifty Shades Books, hearing they were all the rage. I will say that my sex life is varied enough that I don't need to read all of this crap written by this woman! I am sorry I purchased the set but I did not wish to return because I did listen to all 3 books hoping that they would get better in some way shape or form! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
All of the characters in this book are shallow and there is no development of anything in this book!
