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
Great book, easy listening. There were a few parts that were a bit drawn out but taking breaks from it helped.
Lovely story and will read / listen to the next one.
Christian asking Ana to marry him.
Nothing compares to this
Yes, what an amazing talent in her voice becoming all the different characters.
No, I listened to it on my journey to and from work over a couple of weeks.
This audiobook brought the characters to life.
It was most interesting to see how the author portrayed dom and sub relationships.
Some of the dialogue was a little boring.
Her voice sounded like someone who may be of Anna's age.
I did cry at some points and felt warm and fuzzy at others
Love book 2 from the 50 Shade's trilogy.
Once again Becca has brought Anna to life.
looking forward to the last book
"The erotic becomes sultry!"
I enjoyed listening to the unwrapping of the dark Christian and the possibly too easy acceptance of Anna's love. However, good to have the twist of danger added!
"Another beautiful read."
I absolutely loved this audible, after the first one it was only a matter of time before I was going to listen to the second one. It was incredible.
I really like the performance that the reader has to give and even though for some her voice can be annoying it definitely grows on you after a while.
I cannot wait to move onto the third on now.
loved it couldn't put it down . can't wait to the next book !!!! hope the next book it just as good as the last two
I love the unfolding of this complex man and development of the emotional yet simple relationship.
"Darker shades of Grey"
Enjoyed this audio book. Narrated very well. Storyline was also good. Looking forward to the film.
"Not just about sex!!"
Completely different to all my assumptions and everything I'd imagined and heard! Heart felt & deeply tragic story!
The media hype put me off these books. I finally gave in when a friend whose opinion I value recommended I get the narrated version.
I think I would have struggled with the paperback, but as my first narrated book series, I thoroughly enjoyed being able to listen while doing other things. I also think seeing the film was a benefit - with its excellent casting, which helped me visualize the events as they happened. Looking forward to the conclusion.
"A true ladies fantasy."
Narrator: it would have been more enjoyable if there was a female and male playing the parts, as the female changed her voice,
A great story, I have never read a book like this one, my brains was doing all sorts.
Can't wait to listen to freed,
"Loved this book"
Yes I have listened to this book more than once..It is more in-depth than the first one .I love Christian falling in love with Anna
Loved Anna and Christian
Becca Battoe done a crap job
Yes Yes Yes
