I will be honest, it took me almost 4 months to get through this last book in the 50 Shades trilogy, and even at that, I wasn't able to completley finish this one. I hate the voice of the narrator, but since I had listened to the other 2 books, I figured I needed to finally hear the end.
Well, I'm sorry to say that the start of it had me lost, with a gap in time so big I thought I missed an entire book in between, and by this book, I could no longer bear to hear the same descriptions of sex and feelings anymore. I finally shut of the book when it got to the 50 shades of Christen because frankly ladies I didn't care! I don't care for the end, and to hear any more about this guy that in book 1 had me at the edge of my seat, I felt smothered by the cloyingly sweet picture perfect ending, and I wanted to gouge my ears out if I had to hear Beccas voice anymore.
For me, 2 was enough, and like they say.. 3 is a crowd. This could have ended after the second book instead of rehashing, and dragging out to the point that it lost my interest.
The narrator, she was HORRIBLE!! Sounded like a teenager with an annoying voice and the writing was equally HORRIBLE!! Unrealistic scenarios & characters!! What prompted me to listen to all three books you might ask...the erotica...it was the only part that was well written...other than that I wouldn't recommend any of the 3 books!!
Made the situations and characters more believable (a 21 yr old getting ready to graduate college is a virgin, doesn't own a computer or cell phone?! yeah right), and the main character is 28, was an abused child, adopted by a dr...becomes a piano prodigist & multi-billionaire. Is EXTREMELY controlling (outside of the bedroom) in a condensending, parently way and the female is always cowering to him like a child! I wanted to slap her on many occassions and if she said...'oh my' & 'my inner goddess' one more time I thought I'd pull my hair out!!
her voice, her intonation, and the fact that EVERYTIME she read an email she read the time, date, salutation, etc which typiclally was longer than the content of the email. If I have to listen to her one more time I'll SCREAM
Becca Battoe does such a good job of bringing all the characters to life. I am listening to these books over and over they are so good.
Annastatia and Kate, Annastatia because of her profound development throughout the story. Kate because of just who she was. I loved all the characters in this book because they had the best dialogue and story to tell. Anna's phrases is describing things, Red Room of Pain, Submissive Special, etc.
Too many to say, the constant development of Christian and Anna is so riviting throughout all three books.
From Ordinary to Extrodinary
these characters are such name dropping stuck up rich snobs even though the author tries to make them less shallow. It is just so DUMB. The narrator ends every sentence with the new valley girl intonation that has taken over “like” the growly voice
she made the people sound so unbelievably stupid and boring
all of them
NO, NO, NO
no imagination, same old sad tired line! oh my!
she was boring!
It just sounded like a kid wrote it.
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
I really liked how the writer shows how some women can make a nice looking man feel uncomfortable. She was honest about how it can affect the girlfriend/wife as well as the male perspective. It shows how a man wants a connection with a woman, not to be seen as an object or sex toy.
Their intimate connection and how they communicate. How they could put the past fights behind them and move forward still loving one another.
Yes, I think she did a wonderful job. I would recommend her.
When the female architect was told to keep her hands off her husband. She had it coming.
It is a close match up. This book is something that you can get carried away in if you are willing to let yourself.
It would have to be Anastasia. She is a complete character with very unexpected behavior and reactions at every turn. I LOVED her battles with her subconsciousness and her inner goddess!!
I have not but I would be interested in hearing them. She is very good.
This is such a great book, you can get carried away and really feel like you know the characters.
I have listened to the series 3x, it's hot & exciting!
The love scenes
Love conquers all!
I absolutely love audible! I read constantly and there is nothing better than finding a new series to follow. I'm a syfy/fant kinda gal.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? Christian Grey....This trilogy stays with you long after the book ended! The characters have grown so much since the first pages of 50 Shades of Grey. These books were fun reads and are unique in their topics and fiery in all the right places. Worth the read!
