Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist.
They rekindle their searing, sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

Bit of sense and proper story
A loone would
Sex is a beautiful classical painting, please dont portriate as modern art where it does not have any sense but to few.
1st so far!!!
Anna very witty
She really got into this one very nice performance
No I savor my listening time plus this book I can't exactly listen to with the kids around
Can't wait to listen to book 3
Would have had to be a good book, and it's terrible. Also the Becca's performance was just annoying.
The writing is atrocious. She uses terms she obviously doesn't understand. Her common use of "subconscious" is incorrect - it's obvious she has no idea what that means. Plus she uses "inner Goddess" for pretty much the same thing. Her vocabulary is so limited, she just repeats the same things over and over, and calls it a book. Also, non of the characters have any depth, not even the main one. This series is so bad, the only thing I could compare it to is Twilight... then I found out that this series started as twilight fan-fiction. Vomit. Oh, and if you think this book is about S&M, you will be disappointed. It's all talk, no walk.
The whole thing needs to be scrapped and rewritten by someone with guts, and maybe some skill...
How is this series popular???
I enjoyed the the continuing storyline, Ana's challenges and Christian's wonderful fall in love with Ana.
Christian, charming, dazzling Ana falls in love with him. I loved the vunerable man and loves the flaws. It gives people hope. I am happily married and the joy I have, maybe this will give others such hope that it is out there.
I liked her performance and I believed that she was Ana, her Christian is fine and other men. I found when you are into the story it all sounds fine.
Yes, wonderful I wish it would continue on for many books.
I love the way E.L. James writes, she is exciting.
At first, I just saw this trilogy mentioned in a magazine. Then I saw, after I downloaded it, that it was supposed to be a really sexy book about Sado-masochism (sp?). I almost asked audible to take them back. But, fortunately, I decided to give them a chance. The books are really well written and are less about BDSM than a psychological and romantic and sexy exploration. Actually, a really good read. The reader was well chosen; she sounds correct for the character she portrays. If you are curious, give it a listen...you won't regret it. Unless, of course, you are adverse to sexually graphic literature.
Yes, I did love the book, but I have to be honest and tell you that (and i mean no disrespect
to the narrarator) the women who narrarated this book was not the right pick. It was so
hard to stay with the story when the voices of the characters sounded so fake, not only the male voices, but even the female voices were awful. I really wanted to see the story
all the way through though. I will go out and buy the book and read it myself, and hope-
fully it will not lose any of its pizzazz.
Excellent story so far, and i cant wait to read book 3.
Christian and Anna's opposites attract relationship
only if its not anything with Adult content.
Again, I must say that I believe that Becca Battoe is an excellent narrarator, but not for these particular books. She failed to make the characters believable, they sounded so
fake and childish, like she was trying way to hard, and with that the voices sounded down
Christian Grey is supposed to be hot and sexy and i didnt feel that from her narration, nor
did i feel like she brought Anastasia Steel's personality out, she sounded more like a dopey teenager.
I still will recommend this story to everyone because it is one of those stories that you just
have to know whats gonna happen with the characters next..but i think i will read the final
installment on my own so i dont lose any of the excitement through Becca Battoe's
fake accents for all of the characters in the book. She would have been better off just
doing a straight narration, without adding voices to each character.
I would recommend because it's an interesting read.
I've never actually read anything like this.
Becca Battoe gives a believable performance as a naive inexperienced 22 year old.
I enjoyed listening every evening on my way home from work.
Once I got passed how juvenile some of the writing was I started to like the characters. It is very campy and unreal but I do like to "get away" so I actually like the book.
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
Yes. The change in Christian is so sweet and the way he cherishes her makes you want to read it over and over. I've listened to it at least 3 times since downloading. I'm not crazy about the Becca Battoe, but I am crazy about the story.
Bared To You and Reflected To You, but I don't like them nearly as much as Fifty.
I don't know what the tag line would be, but I will be first in line to get a ticket.
You will either love or hate this series. I am definitely on the love love love side. I enjoy this story so much. Christian's change and Ana's maturity. I have really enjoyed this story.
No, they're equal. I just have more time to listen, then to read.
I have a 2 - 2/12 hour roundtrip commute Monday through Friday so these audiobooks are great and make my commute enjoyable and speed by!
I like listening because it allows me to create a "movie" in my head and E L James did a great job of character development throughtout the the entire series.
Yes, I like the way the story unfolds and the detail of the characters.
The time in Aspen when Christian finally relaxed and showed a side of him we hadn't seen up to that point.
Fifty Shades of Grey...Anna's Awakening
Really enjoyed the Epilogue as well...looking forward in time.
