Please DO NOT listen to these negative reviews, the narration of these audiobooks is excellent. I think people just like to complain in life and cannot be happy. Save your negative comments and keep them to yourself!!! Great Job narrating Becca Battoe :)
The story line was much better on this book than the first book. I still did not like the narrator. She just doesn't do justice to this book. I am glad that I listened to it though, and look forward to book 3.
I have listened to the book over again. Listening to these books while driving is a better than to listening to music on the radio.
I like both the Ana and Christan because without one the other would never be who the are at the end of the book
Her tone was the darkest in this book. I liked her upbeat tone that she read in the first book.
I just don't get what the hype is about this series. I was expecting so much more than what was presented. I was bored halfway through the book. Although this was certainly not my favorite book, I have this quirky thing where I have to finish the entire series regardless if I like it or not.
i would recommend the book but not the audio book the narrator you can tell is reading and her male "voices" are horrible so FAKE i got this and fifty shades free but im returning them because i just cant take her voice any more!
horrible "VOICES" and you could tell she was reading and then also she pauses to many times. kinda like shes reading to a child.
The male voices were extremely annoying, and the writing (not the narrator's fault) was horrible! However, the way the narrator said repeat words like, "Oh my!", "Holy crap/shit", "inner goddess", and "subconscious" had me screaming and cringing. Where was the editor?!
Sadly, I will torture myself to listen to or read the third book.
The male voices made them sound nasal and/or condescending like the narrator had an unnatural intonation to their voices that made it bothersome to focus on the content.
Fifty Shades of Annoying! Holy crap! Holy shit! Oh my! Overhyped, poorly written, and narrator drove me crazy! My inner goddess did not do triple Salchow's, backflips, or somersaults while listening to this audiobook. If I was so in tune with MY subconscious and knew what it was THINKING, then it would want to punch her subconscious in the face, breaking her spectacles for acting like a scolding school marm. At the very mention of "inner goddess" and "subconscious," I found myself cringing and screaming because it became so common; admittedly, Ana's inner goddess is quite the athlete, gymnast and ice skater...very impressive! I have to wonder if she has Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder). The book became so inundated with boring, detailed, gratuitous "vanilla sex" with a hint of "kinky fu&$ery" like a bad porn flick, but unlike bad porn, this actually has a potentially good plot if it had been written better. I find myself asking the same thing the insecure, whiny, game-playing character finds herself asking repeatedly, "Why [her]?" I know she's young, but it's so far-fetched and not believable that this girl would magically begin to "change" Grey when years of therapy hasn't. Puh-lease! I should probably do my review in Microsoft Word so that I can right click and choose synonyms to get some 50-cent words in there like "loquacious" and "avuncular," etc. to make a dim-witted college grad appear sagacious.
Yes, I tortured myself with Fifty Shades of Crap, er Grey, and why, do you ask will I torture myself with Fifty Shades Freed? Morbid Fascination, I guess. At least E.L. James is laughing all the way to the bank while I'm screaming in my car down the highway to hell, but I can't not listen and not know what happens. It's like crack. It's horrible for you, but you're stuck wanting more.
The second book in the the 50 Shades triology only got better in the final paragragh of the book. Until then there has been no plot, no real story and the performance of the narrator is no better than the first book. How many ways can you use the f word. Still hope the 3rd book has some story. How can one have 3 books and so far the first 2 could be done in 5 or 6 chapters.
I would recommend the actual book. The story is a fun read, but I found myself getting frustrated with the whiny and shallow characters that the narrator portrayed. Don't get the audio book!!
Yes, to spice up your life
Ana because she held her own. She's a badass
At first it was a little valley girl, but it grew on me and I loved it.
Repitious word use by the author which was annoying, but the story was great. Needed more imagination and descriptors.
I love this book, but the voice of the narrator is terrible!!! Her impression of male voice is super irritating and makes me want to stop listening to it. Our Cristian cannot sound the way she "sounds him out" UGGGGH!
