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.
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.
“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!!
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
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
Absolute bore. I've wasted a credit :( should've gotten Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper instead! It's a torture from all those repetitive sentences and words. OH MY...
Becca's narration was superb.
She does different voices for the characters. I dont think you could find a better person to do this job.
I bought book two because I thought it couldn't possibly get worse than the first one - and Wow.
I am now more certain than ever that I will need to have left my brain outside in the rain for a fortnight, for me to ever be stupid enough to allow book three to become part of my library.
Even the sex scenes became so tedious that I regularly hit fast forward to get back to the story - to see if there actually was a story! This book was so utterly dismal that it sucked in every possible way. I found myself feeling thoroughly gob smacked and embarrassed for E.L. James.
This is the book, where they fall in love and is my favourite out of all three of them
I bought this on audio as I have already read the trilogy five times and wanted to hear it read to me just to get another 'fix' of the Grey's
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.
DAMMNN ITS GETTING INTERESTINGGGGGGGG OMG @ THE END HEHE SECOND BOOK IS CAPTIVATING... SOME BITS IRRITATING WITH THE CHARACTERS BUT ALL IN ALL EPIC
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.
"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.
"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!
"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!
"More rubbish from this trilogy"
Don't buy into the hype. Bought all 3 at once.......big mistake. I rarely write reviews but this book was so bad had to warn others.
One star for me for getting to the last chapter
Yes, it is a great read a must have for all, but you must read them all they are all good books.
Anna such a down to eath lady. Great read
Mr greay. What a guy, would love to meet him for real.
best in trilogy
book two really brings the story together.defo best book in trilogy by far.
i have read the books about twenty times. having it read out makes me conect better with ana.
i listened to it in no time at all.
really would have prefered the male voices to be read by a man. would conect more with christian this way.
