Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you and stay with you forever.
When Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them had anticipated. Ana must learn to share Grey's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity or independence; and Grey must overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors that still haunt him.
Now, finally together, they have love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of infinite possibilities. But just when it seems that they really do have it all, tragedy and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true....

Knowing that Ana was able to bring her '50 Shades' into the light. I had been told that I would need to read all three books to fully understand the story of Ana and Christian and even though it was hard going sometimes I was really pleased that I persisted and read to the end.
I really enjoyed the last two chapters when we heard Christians first impressions of Ana - she had him from the start. He was so arrogant - but with this coming at the end of the book it was great to know just how Christian ticked.
I have also read the book and I think Becca was able to give the characters more definition.
Strangely enough it was the third last chapter when four year old Christian speaks (in his mind) about what life with his new family means to him. Unfortunately this is fiction imitating life. I felt so sad for this little boy who had endured so much.
It was good to have a completion and understanding of reasons behind 'Fifty'
finalisation of most issues
She was good but I always prefer different voices for different character
I've listened to this trilogy many times and get something new out of it every time.
The love was uppermost in Christian and Ana then the great sex came second.
She bought the characters alive.
A love story with "more".
Can't wait for the film. Just hope that the film makers keep it true to the books.
I was keen to continue the story but it started to be repetitive
I did enjoy this, the third book of the series . However I found the story a little predictable
& the ending was not satisfying at all. The author seemed to wind up the story out of the blue & left me with many questions. I felt as though there should have been one more book to Finnish the story properly.
After book two I really didn't know where this story could go and I have to say I really didn't expect where this book took me. However once again the interaction between Christian and Anastasia was excellent. The kidnapping scene was resolved a little easily for me however once again an excellent read.
Again Becca Battoe handled the performance very well and made it easy to listen too.
Overall and excellent series of books that I will continue to enjoy listening too in the years to come.
Definitely, I would cut a third of the sex out and condense the series into one book with a reasonable story line.
Not for a long time. Too much drawn out sex in the middle of the story just getting going. Repetitive language. I found myself fast forwarding past the sex to get back to the story.
Not too bad.
Yes and no. I enjoyed the book but became frustrated with Anastasia's language and her "Inner Goddess"
Just how naive can a woman be? Miss Steele and Mr Grey? Come on. A college student who is absolutely stunning and still a virgin??? Was this set in the wrong era??? A virgin who has rough initial sex then repeats it the next morning??? Unbelievable.
Much better than having to read it
there was never a moment I wanted to turn it of
she is so easy to listen to
it is good the way it is ...nothing to change
I am on the last of it.....I will be sad when it finishes..... Hope there is more to come
I came to realise by the end of the third book, that this trilogy is all about the love story. The kinky sex is interesting but in the end its all about a desperate, all consuming love that many many people never experience. The kind of love where despite the hardships, a couple really do adore each other and ..........yes....... it does happen. Its also about the female need to save a handsome and esentially good but very damaged man from himself, and see that love does win over in the end. Yes the books are repetivive but to be honest who cares. It was all about heart and I loved them:) Becca Battoe has done a nice job of the reading.
"Can't stop listening"

beautiful love story that was compelling to the very last sentence. very sad to finish the book. beautifully read.
I will deeply miss Anastasia and Christian and look forward to the next chapter. fantastic story and very well narrated xx
"best book in the trilogy"
really interesting story line, dramatic throughout and keeps you guessing. great read. bit long in middle but the end is worth it
I was initially unsure about the narrator Becca Batoe, but after a while I didn't notice. I just love this story. :-)
So slow and the sex metaphors get rather repetitive! Though very useful at getting me off to sleep for an afternoon nap :-)
"So sad the book has ended"
The person speaking in the book was fantastic. The book was worth three strong stars.
"bucket of crap"
God what an awful book sorry but it stinks "holy cow" this "holy cow" that
Enjoyed them listened to all three books twice . Then narrator was clear and made you feel as if you were a voyeur in the character's lives
