I don't need to say much more about this book that everyone hasn't already. It really exposed me to a world I was not familiar with and I loved it. So did the husband. It kept me loving almost every moment of the story, and re-listening again. Its a well written book, which could only be improved by a better narrator.

Amazing Love Story
She's very good at making you feel like you're in Anna's head
I read this book before listening to it - and honestly getting through the first few chapters of Becca doing Christian's voice was ROUGH....but well worth it, because then I could listen to my favorite book at work and no one would have a clue! I've listened to it twice and I'm re-reading the book for the third time.....I've never done that with any other book in my life, even though I have great intentions of doing so. If you can get past all of the gossip and nonsense about this book being "porn" - and you love a good romance, then I highly recommend this book. There are a lot of things I could critique about this book, but honestly I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did and after two chapters in the first book, I was hooked. I cannot say enough good things about it....
Sure, the story is good, not great, but it is interrupted entirely too much by the constant sex. I like a good sex interruption in a story as much as the next woman but this was more like the story line interrupted the sex. Okay we get it the couple are sexually compatible and the like sex any which way.
I only listened to the three books in this series. They were all basically the same.
She was okay though I did feel her voice was a bit whinny.
As it was the last book in a series I needed the closure.
E.L. James, the sex interludes you wrote were good, there is just way to many of them in the books.
Didn't have to read it.
Christian--he has so many psychological aspects to his personality driven by early childhood experiences
The inflection in her voice
When he fell to the ground and put his head down
Yes. It's a good story. I have never heard or read a trilogy like this before.
A few books by E. Lynn Harris
No. I would have preferred a male character to do the male parts. She did a good job on Annastasias part though.
I'm not really a romance novel fan but I got swept up in the Fifty Shades mania and felt that I must read the trilogy. I really wanted to like it. First the narrator is HORRIBLE, she should not be allowed to even look at books! All the characters sounded the same.... bad! The voice she did for the Hispanic character I think maybe borderline racist. I'm not sure if it was the awful narration or the sappy bad writing of the book either way I would not recommend this trilogy. Hopeful the movie will be better lol.
Depends on the reviews

No, if i had been reading it, i could have skipped the multiple sex encounters, but because it was audio i had to stay and listen. Not a very strong story line in my opinion.
I would not recomment this series. It's actually boring once u get past the first few sex scenes.
I love listening to the books here.
Great! But needs males voice for Christin!
Almost cried and did laugh!
Don't miss this one!
The narrator's voice was just irritating overall, even considering that she had to voice so many characters. The only reason I continued to listen was that I wanted to finish the trilogy, but don't have time to read it in the traditional manner.
I have read all 3 books. You have to read all three as the story just gets better. They are definitely hot as far as love goes. Sometimes you do want to say is Ana really that naive? Becca reads this book very well all except for the email portions. We know they are emailing each other but she reads too much detail as far as dates and time and who the emails are from.
