i think Rebecca did a convincing job of playing Anastasia. not crazy about her doing all the voices in the book. Would have been better with different characters.
Enjoyed the story and the narrating voice. But I didn't get all hot and horny as people were saying I will....sorry :)
I loved how Christian realized that Anna was more important than His submissive lifestyle and how she really wasn't a submissive, but only play acted for his sake. Anna seen the real Christian, the little boy that was abused and broken and felt unloved and she cherished and loved him.
When they professed their love for each other and he cherished and loved her more that is dominant lifestyle and was willing to do whatever she wanted, as long as she stayed with him.
I laughed and cried throughout the book. It was heart breaking, touching, passionate and erotic, but a great story.
When I first heard about the Fifty Shades of Grey books, I put off reading them, until recently. I read the first book and understood a little of the disappointment on some of the reviews, because it left you hanging, but I disagree with some of the bad reviews. The first book isn't as good as the the 2nd and 3rd, but it's more of an introduction and building of the the characters. It could have been shorter, possibly combined into two books, instead of three. The combined stories amount to a love story that's heartbreaking, touching and erotic at times, the sex isn't all BDSM. It made me laugh and cry.
You have to read all of the books to really appreciate the story. The sexual descriptions in these books are mild compared to a lot of other authors, like Lora Leigh or Maya Banks, just to name a few.
This book is about a lot more than just BSDM, so for those of you who only read the first book, I suggest you read the others and give it a chance. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Christian seemed overbearing and overprotective at times, but understandable, due to his fear of losing Anna or anyone ever harming her and the way his childhood started and he never did anything to her that she didn't allow, he wasn't an abuser or wife beater.
By for the best
The hope the story gives to those whom have lived with addicted parents
Young, vibrant, Loving
My Fifty Shades
all the detail that is read when they are e mailing is very annoying
The attention to detail was great but even better was the story of Ana and Christian. Anyone who has been in love with someone who has issues can relate. These characters are very well written and you care about what happens to them. You hope for them.
Christian as I think thru the series he has grown the most.
By the third book the narrator had lost a lot of that nasal valley girl sound.
I would really like to see E.L. James write a prequel of Christian concentrating not so much on his early childhood but more when he meets Mrs. Robinson and the years leading up to meeting Ana.
Yes, I would happily recommend this book because it was so well written I couldn't stop listening.
I liked how the book caught my attention from the first page to the last.
She became the characters.
I was pleased that I bought the book. Can't wait for her next one.
The fact that it was the same performer from the first two books kept the character alive in my mind.
The story itself. Around the end it picks up a ton and some things you never expect to happen, just do.
Her performance breathes emotion, taking you directly into the character's heads.
Yes, at the end when Anna get's (spoiler) kidnapped. I was so anxious about the story I couldn't turn it off.
An amazing trilogy. It is not as controversial as everyone says it is, it has a great storyline and amazing characters.
The narrator was really good. It really helped putting up with all the whining.
You finally get the main character. Understand what made behave as he did.
I prefer the audio version.
Oh gosh I couldn't say.
Parts of emotion really pushed through to the listeners. I enjoyed listening to her.
Jack's....I don't want to give anything way :)
Loved the series over all.
Yes I would recommend this story, it was great. R rated version of twilight, rich kinky guy instead of rich vampire, naive virgin in both stories. both stories have family and friends who dont need to know the truth and oh yes cant forget the "other guy" wolf vs photographer
Edward opps I mean Christian
she might not have been the right voice for this story
yes but laugh or cry wasnt on the list of emotions
Dont get me wrong this was a very good story and those people too mature to actually admit they liked Twilight, this is the perfect story.
