"In a class by itself." (Entertainment Weekly)
first book.. what a mess.second book- MaMa Porn third book was the best of the three, it had a nice follow up and a good ending
the sister was the most irrtating of all
If you like Mama Porn with very limited expression other than "Oh My'' this this is for you, however, I was board, and I found these characters very irritating. The constant nagging from the leading lady was ridiculous, after each sex seen. This was just too much drama. Please do not make a movie.
Yes, Becca Battoe has a wonderful voice and a great narrator.
None that I can think of right now.
When Christian and Ana got back together (beginning of the book)
To have had more than one reader, The narrator could barely read Anastasia's parts. How could anyone assume she could read Christian's part effectively? So much of the essence was lost, the moments totally missed due to the lack of tonage from the female narrator.
She could not effectively do the male characters nor the other female parts, I'm totally flabbergasted that it could not have been denoted before release. It makes me feel you do not care about the listeners or you were in such a rush for release that you just didn't care about quality of delivery.
Becca sounded winded on many occassions throughout the book, not to mention rushed.
I have purchased two other books and was highly pleased; this one here is a true let down and disappointment.
Anger, sadness and untold disappointment. Why untold, because I really wanted to ask for a refund, but I didn't.
On second thought can I have a refund? Laughing but very serious...
for me yes it was easier to follow and the narrator is wonderful
Loved how she tried to incorporate multiple voices for the multiple characters
yes and I listened to it 3 times
Exciting Sexy Captivating
Christian and his dark co dependant needs...
Shocked is a better description to some of the sexual content
Narrator is fine, the book left me flat.
Total disappointment is what I felt after reading this book.
I really don't understand how this book became a sensation. Fifty Shades fell flat on so many levels I really wish I could have my credits back.
The sex in this book is not enough to warrant all the hype about the novel. This is one of the most poorly written books I have ever listened to or read. It reads like something a high school student might write wishing to shock the reader! I wish I had started counting the "oh my", "holy s*#%" and "holy f@#*" comments just to satisfy my curiosity as to how much these "literary" phrases were used! Not only was the writing sophomoric, it was clearly written by a much older person. The main characters engage in email conversations (complete with the headers and salutations read out completely - really?) People who graduated from college in 2011, as the main character did, DO NOT have conversations through email - they text! Also, I don't think there is a recent college graduate on the planet that went through four years of college without their own computer - please! This author is clearly way out of touch. Even the sex could have been more imaginative.
I thought the performance was very poor. The narrator made Anna sound like a Valley Girl ditz. The narration was so slow it drove me crazy at first. Then I discovered that with my new Andriod app, you can adjust the speed. I turned it up to 1.5 and it actually sounded normal!
At the top or very close
Christian.......He was a loss soul
I didn't like narrator's male voice
I loved all three books........Read each by book form and then the audiobooks.
Read the book if you have the chance as this narrator is terrible! I downloaded the audiobook and stopped after 5 minutes and ran out to the story to get the hard copy because I couldn't stand listening to the narrator's "performance" - hopefully they find another narrator.
Save yourself frustration and READ this book instead of suffering through this horrible
Her reading is stilted, choppy and juvenile.
