I really enjoyed this book, and am a big fan of anything that normalizes sexuality and gets people talking. For instance, all the girls in my office shared this book and giggled about it. I had a print copy first, and I picked it up and couldn't put it down. The only thing I would criticize is that not all of her sexuality information is 100% correct, but she doesn't claim to be. This is her experience and her opinion, so it added to the charm. Read it, listen to it!
This was very easy to listen to, and a much needed continuation to what seemed like an incomplete first book (Fifty Shades of Gray.) The narrator did an excellent job reading the book in a non-annoying, yet youthful way. It would be difficult to find Christian attractive if the narrator didn't pull the voice off well, and I feel like she did.
I was overall disappointed with the series after all of the hype. I had hoped for more plot, but I think that the author is not to fault, as she did what she set out to do. I think that the great reviews come from women who should get over their shame and just shop in a different section of the bookstore.
I like most of it, but nothing stands out. It was a good story, distracting, entertaining, but not especially thought-provoking.
While relatively well written, I did become a little irritated over the use of the same phrasing and big words throughout. I think rather than reuse big works, authors should expand their vocabulary, or opt for simplicity. This was, however, one of the author's first works, and it should not be a fault that she gained extreme popularity early in her career.
