An audio book loving Aucklander.
"I gape at him"..."Oh Christian"...
"Oh my 50 shades" . Save me now. I grew so tired of hearing the same lines repeated over and over, so I gave up on it. Poorly written. Why is this so popular? Don't waste your precious credit on it.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
It has everything one wants in a book, it's exciting, funny and well yes lots of sex very erotic sex, but it is also a love story with all the twists of one. It will make you cry and laugh and want more, you fall in love with both characters and well it's only fair that I say that men like Christian Grey are only make believe in books. Don't miss this series!!
More about the story of the two people rather than their very boring sex life. I feel stupid for buying it, really stupid. I loved hearing about Christian's lifestyle but that's about it.
Someone who doesn't say "oh my!" every third sentence in that revolting accent.
The first book I managed to read, this one I just couldn't bear.
The story continues from where Ana has left her beloved Christian, these are two modern day lovers just one is Fifty Shades ........ ed. It has everything one wants in a book, it's exciting, funny and well yes lots of sex very erotic sex, but it is also a love story with all the twists of one. It will make you cry and laugh and want more, you fall in love with both characters and well it's only fair that I say that men like Christian Grey are only make believe in books. You want to follow their journey and see where it takes them, just wait till the final book Fifty Shades Freed, it's a ripper. All I will say is laters baby......
I found this really difficult to rate - it does get you in - but its the classic girls meets screwed up millionaire. The plot is weak and predictable - you think that there is going to be some drama some suspense but it fizzles out.
Focused way too much on having sex every five minutes - but with more in the story line even that could have been forgiven.
Its pretty much Mills and Boon on steroids. If you want an easy listen that wont keep you awake at night this is it. Oh and just a tiny bit of day dreaming about being with Mr Grey and his money lol
I enjoyed listening to this immensely. My inner goddess flipped many times and my heart constricted many times as well as I got to know Christian more. Great choice in getting Becca to narrate. I can't imagine anyone else.
""Awful narrator never again""
they both got the family they both wanted in the end
i loved READING these book but the NARRATOR killed the audio
"On the downward spiral but I still read it!"
After the first book, I felt I needed to get the rest of the story - the sex almost got in the way tbh because it was same stuff in different places with different extras!
After I'd finished it, I couldn't possibly have told you what happened - it is probably the least memorable of all three books.
I won't comment on the actual language/words - not to my taste - sorry.
Still glad I listened - sometimes just being able to discuss the current hyped stuff is enough!
excellent even better and more erotic and intense than the book. beware do not listen to this while driving :)
Both Ana and Christian
the one where Ana gives Christian the third present.
"Waste of my life!"
Really tried to get into this trilogy, but it was too hard to listen to rubbish! I was losing the will to live!
the 2nd book is fab its certainly a page turner .and the story gets deaper my house lay untouched for nearly three days i could,nt stop listening to it
"read all reviews before buying ...."
This book sounds great but the narrators voice is terrible,really irratating, which you wouldnt pick up on from the sample but as she has to repeat the same awful 'Oh My's' and 'Holy Sxxt's on average every couple of minutes it really goes through you.
Very dissapointed with the end which completely left me feeling a bit ripped off for the credit i'd wasted. I suppose its so that you will feel compelled to buy the next book but honestly it wasnt good enough to waste more credits.
This order was fantastic 50 shades of darkness brilliant it had me in tears can't wait to see the movie again and again and again
"Even if you liked the first, you won't enjoy this"
The pathetic lead became even more uninteresting and limp in this book, and the attempt at bringing some kind of story line in between badly written and repetitive sex scenes was almost amusing, but not amusing enough to tempt me to continue listening.
"fifty shades of grey trilogy"
Fantastic fantastic fantastic. I read the. Three books last year when they first came out, from the beginning I couldn't put them down. Thought I'd try listening to them, same thing, couldn't stop listening. Loved every minute.
"Mm..... MORE! of the same............"
I have now read all three titles in the series, & generally found there was not enough substance to the storey line for me. I felt it was ultimately just a vehicle for the readers education/titillation in S&M activity. The characters were fairly predictable, and the narrator did quite well to inject some life into them. Not really my kind of book ( I like historical mystery), but it no doubt has appeal to some judging by the talk about it when first released & sales figures.
