This book is a very good, you must read this. Well done E L James & Becca Battoe
"OK if you like that sort of thing -but"
Author seems to think momentarily means in a moment (so do quite a few people but I don't|) and the reader can't pronounce tentatively which grates a bit as these words appear quite frequently
Have only read book one. Probably wont bother with the next two. Becca Battoes voice becomes quite monotonous and the most irritating thing is that she reads out all the unnecessary details of every e mail i.e. who it is from, date, time, place, who it is to.. If reading script you would automatically skip over most of this but are unable to when listening to it. I found it shallow and lacking in a good .. story line, poorly written and very repetitive, most of Annas exclamations are either "Holy s..t" or "Oh my". In my view It is expensive since it reads more like a trashy paperback which one could buy for £7.99 .
"stick with it"
i felt it was a slow starter, when it picked up pace was a great story line, even for an erotic novel felt there was too many sex scences, distracted from the excellent story line
"What can I say, toe curling!!!!!"
Loved this book, the characters the plot the pace, everything. Have made all my friends read it. Had to read the series again as desperate to knoe what happened. I have never read a book from this genre before but might give it ago now. You usually cannot pry me away from my paranormal novels
i agree with the previous comment about the repitition of certain phrases, it is sort of extreme, however i loved both the book and the narrator. the book really is like marmite, youll either love it or hate it.i loved it !!
Having read about this book in magazines and newspapers i thought I would go ahead and download it. I normally really enjoy listening to audiobooks, but this one really irritated me from the start as the narrators voice was so annoying! Although the book is erotic in nature it left me feeling somewhat flat. I certainly will not be using anymore of my credits to purchase the next books in this trilogy.
This Novel was amazing...Had me gripped...Never read anything like this before ...great!
Cant wait for next book...:-)
