If the author was a better writer.
Absolutely. As a straight male in my mid thirties, I read this to "see what all the fuss was about" and tap into the zeitgeist. What I found was the horrific realization that this may be what it is like to be inside a woman's head. Perhaps instructive, but mostly painful.
The director on this book made a bad call: in the email exchanges between Annastasia and Christian, the narrator kept reading the To:, From:, Date and Time: lines in the emails, as well as the email signatures, something you would gloss over as a reader--this made these exchanges tiresome, not like they were meant which was more snappy and playful. Not necessary.
By the end, I did want to have closure, and it did not come. Which means I will just have to ask someone else what happens in the next 2 books because I cannot endure another myself.
There are better ways to spend your Audible credits and time.
