Yes, after the first book, I was eager to hear the second book, and it was good although not as good as the first. In my opinion the whole trilogy could have been put into 1 book, and saved the excitement you get from the first one.
By the end of this one, I only went on to listen to the third "Fifty shades freed" because I just wanted a explaination as to why it was even necessary since while this book was good, you get tired of the same wording and mindless thinking of Anastasia. Well anyway, I won't spoil it, but if you enjoyed the first book for the exciting and kinky fu#kery LOL then expect pretty much the same but by now you aren't a virgin anymore.
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.
I LOVED this book, I must admit that the voice bothered me at first, but then as the book progressed, I realized that it was perfect for the snarky attitude that this kick butt gal has. I laughed out loud so many times, and have told everyone from my Mom to my best friend to listen to this book.
It will have you cheering for the writer, and laughing at all of the things in this book that many of us ladies have been through, and you will find yourself shaking your head with understanding, an outloud gasp or a flat out giggle, as you listen to all of the stages you go through in a relationship with a cheating guy, from heartbreak to starting over, and everything in between.
The narrator of this book brings such humor to a story that is already so well written and funny, I seriously laughed out loud several times, and simply enjoyed this book from beginning to end.
I believe there was a movie made from the book, and if I find it, I will definatly watch it!
This book was a great listen, and I found myself listening every chance I could even at work. (Which if you do so, be sure you are alone as there is quite a lot of cursing) But having a male and a female reading the different characters, really brought the book to life.
There was one point that I had that "Ah ha" moment, then much to my surprise another twist. It is a very exciting book that is so well written, and read, that you feel like you are actually seeing it through the eyes of the characters. And although it seemed to keep going even when I thought for sure it would end, I was dissapointed when it did end. Not because it is a bad ending, but I just kept wanting more.. making me feel like I was at a great concert, and the band kept doing an encore, but even after the last one you feel satisfied, but still wish it would never end.
I would for sure recommend it.
I listened because of the big deal everyone is making about it.. However, I let 2 of my friends who read the book listen to the audio version & they laughed saying it is too monotone, and "not how they imagined it to sound".
I agree, and although I enjoyed parts of it, the reading of the emails back and forth between Christian & Anastasia made me want to scream! With the date & time, to, and from etc, read over and over, I would start to lose interest.
If you are listening because of the hype, then you will be fine. But if you want to hear a book that is well written, and read with excitement, read this one yourself, or know that this will be dull in character.
The intimate scenes (of course)
The way she read the part of her friend who is Hispanic, and the way the emails were read
