If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again there is no use in reading it at all. Oscar Wilde
I really don't think there's a difference it really is just what you prefer and if you have time to sit down and Pick up a book
I think fifty shades was very much like the twilight series just amped up by ten definately a grown ups book. The plots on these books were the same girl falls for dangerous guy who has to protect her from mad killers and stalkers. They fall deeply in love against better judgement like I said very similar.
I don't think these books really give you extreme reactions they are more of a love story
I liked that it had more drama.
I liked that it revealed more about Chrisian's past.
I liked the kidnapping scene.
Not as good as the second book.
i have only have 50 shades of grey, all 3 audio books. each audio book had 3 chapters per book
Among the top
There is nothing I have read that can compare.
I like the way you can really hear the difference in moods.
Not really, just their love for each other overall is very moving.
I have read the other books but didnt like it in audible I love the story line and it kept my interesr
the story line
I think when there is a male part it shoud be said by a male not a female putting on a deeper voice
I would have incorporated feminism and not had the same reader play the part of Christian Grey as did Anastasia an all the other characters. If he's supposed to give such a different impression than everyone els eon the planet, it's ill-convincing for that to come through when it's a woman trying to sound like what she thinks a sexy man sounds like. Also the author overuses words like endeavor, mercurial, and sayed to the point that they lose their meaning. And calling a woman's nether regions "here sex" [as in 'he touched my sex' or 'he kissed my sex'] is ridiculous. Lastly, "Laters, Baby" could't make a character sound more like a dueschy frat-boy stereotype - certainly not a mature or sexy man of the world.

Beyond that, as a a male feminist I feel disgusted by this series. The man is a predator on so many levels and yet so many straight women and gay men are eating this crap up with a spoon. If i wasn't already repulsed by this anit-woman man by near the end of the last book, the very end, told form his perspective preying upon her took my disgust for him and all he represents to a new low.
She was fine for most of the book but some other mysterious man - even an unknown - would have been more effective in the CG role. Lastly, she needs to learn to pronounce some of he words as things like "chaise lounge" and any of the Spanish was butchered. I forget the other parts, but I had a running list at one point.
Christian Grey is a disaster and the fact that people buy into his "I had a rough 4 years of life excuse" [which, albeit tragic, doesn't hardly make up for the monster he is] suggest only that the author is happy feeding a sociological disease.
I finished the entire series just minutes ago, to enjoying much of it at all, only to be sure my feminist critique of this would be legitimate and informed. I regret this investment of time.
I would read this trilogy again, slowly and take in the nuances offered. The first book was antagonistic due to Ana's immaturity and response to circumstances, but redeemed it self as it triggered the reader to review their own awkwardness in youth. It took me halfway through the 2nd book to really open my heart to the narrator, she was an excellent Ana, I enjoyed the read enough to finally accept Christian's voice as portrayed. I do believe that people search for this 'agape' . I was pleased within , to note the writer is of a 'good nature' and believes in fairy tales too. It is a book to accept in the moment of the read, a relationship tangled in passion, stark reality, of past and present and the inviting intrigue of future hopes and dreams.
The Story of O, which is not found in Audible's library, however this book takes a very different if not doomed twist.
I found Becca's Anna impeccable, and cannot imagine Anna as anyone elses' voice. I do believe it would have been a 5 star performance if a male narrator had assumed the role of Christian...
It made me long for an INSANELY RICH soul mate. Who wouldn't want to live that way?? Kristel champagne> come on now! private jet? Charley Tango? and one of those Audi's to zip through life...
Fellow readers be objective when you read this book, it is an entertaining love story, that is all, read beyond the 1st book and it will please you, nothing more, nothing less.
The conclusion to all of the characters .
Christian Gray is my favorite character because he is so demented The rich man with a lot of baggage . Proves that money doesn't always buy happiness .
I found myself thinking about the books often I also compared a real family situation to Christian and Anna's I even quoted a few lines to my co worker. I do believe I am Obsessed ! I have even been thinking of songs that would go good with certain scenes in a movie version of the books. OBSESSED !
Yes. To friends who can handle the sexual content in this book.
When the love a woman is the only hope to free the chains of fear.
Becca Battoe does a phenomenal job bringing life to the characters in this book.
I thought the overall story line was really great. For books that are known for "mommy porn" I thought it was well written. I have actually read it twice. A very good read.
Anna. She is such a quite but strong character. She is well to give Christian what he needs but at the same time, not lose who she is in the process
I didn't read the books. No need to since Becca does such a wonderful job making it come alive in audio.
Anytime that Christian showed his weaker side.
