Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.

Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.

Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    Story
    "Fifty Shades Freed"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Freed?

    A beautiful ending to a beautiful series. I picked it up and could not put it down. And now it is over, I feel like I need to read it again to catch all that I might have missed.

    I decided that I wanted to also experience this series as the audiobook. At first I did not care for the narrator, she made Ana seem much younger than her 21 years, but after a while she grew on me. This series is even more enjoyable and intense in the audio format. I see myself reliving this series again and again in the future. For those who have gotten caught up in the hype and have not tried it, you are missing a truly beautiful journey of love between two loveable people.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Christian and Ana were my favorites, Christian a little more so than Ana. But they both had characteristics that I found loveable and enjoyable.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    I didn't particularly care for her at first, her voice made Ana sound younger than she was supposed to be, but it eventually grew on me.

    I would recommend this book over and over again. I hope E L james makes a trilogy based on what Mr. Gray was thinking.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian. He had me so hot and bothered. I loved him.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    I think she did a great job with all the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When christian thought she was going leave him again and he became the Submissive.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so awesome. I hope E L James takes my advice and PLEASE make books based on what Christian was thinking.

    "Terrible writing, repetitive and juvenile."

    Was hoping for a fun summer read but this was not it!
    The three books were poorly written and though I kept hoping for some semblance of an adequate story line to emerge the plot was weak, the characters repetitive and shallow, the writing juvenile and the repetition hard to take. Even the gratuitous scenes (which is what I'm assuming made these books popular) were repetitive and I was fast forwarding through them by book three!

    "YAWN!!!"

    I guess if you are hungry for S&M this is your book! There is absolutely NO STORY line, or should I say the one there is, you figure out in the first book in the first few chapters. I ignorantly bought all 3 of these Fifty Shades Books, hearing they were all the rage. I will say that my sex life is varied enough that I don't need to read all of this crap written by this woman! I am sorry I purchased the set but I did not wish to return because I did listen to all 3 books hoping that they would get better in some way shape or form! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
    All of the characters in this book are shallow and there is no development of anything in this book!

    "Not great"
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Freed?

    The plot was weak, and the dialogue was horrible. The characters didn't mature from the start if the series and the whole book was a waste of time and money.


    What was most disappointing about E. L. James’s story?

    The lack of character development and change. I really was hoping for something others than another story where the girl ends up with the control freak and adjusts her life to meet his needs.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice was too pitchy and hard to listen too for me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    Every scene where the female character backs down abd does not stand up for herself allowing herself to be treated ad a human doormat.


    Any additional comments?

    Very diss appointing ending, to a very disappointing series.

    What would have made Fifty Shades Freed better?

    The first two books were alright but this last one was a waste of time and a waste of a credit. WIll not recommend to others.


    What was most disappointing about E. L. James’s story?

    It was very drawn out and the ending was very lame.

    "Can I have the option of a Negative Star rating?"
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Freed?

    In a word, ALL. I listened to the whole trilogy only to be completely disappointed in the books as well as society for liking them.

    The only thing worse than the plot line was the way it was written. I don’t know how many times I heard "Oh my", “and in that moment” and "subconscious" but it was incredibly annoying. (How would someone even know, as well as Ana seems to know, what is going on in their subconscious? Wouldn’t it be more accurately defined as your “conscious” since Ana is actively aware of the thoughts coming from it?)

    James did not once try to change the words used to explain the story. If it had been me I would have pulled out a thesaurus I’ve owned since elementary school to help break it up.
    The repetition was beyond annoying.

    Then from their the character compositions were dreadful with Christian’s ridiculous predispositions and then sudden changes of heart and then enduring the self-revelations and pitiful self-doubt of Ana that were on every page. I mean really, are we watching a baby take its first steps or picturing and adult woman consenting to intercourse?!?! The maturity level of Ana is just sad and I would have thought that given the nature of the content in this book James would have done a better job of creating characters capable of consenting and enjoying themselves.

    Then there is the underlining idea that you can change someone or that you can just decide not to be something so extreme that you have been for so long (applicable to various aspects/dispositions in life.) Wrong, and women everywhere should be advised; its not love if you have to change the person.

    I kept hearing people raving about how liberating these books were and how after reading it women felt empowered….was this a section of the book that was left out of my unabridged audio book? I was anything but liberated and empowered because of these books. I found myself bored the more I listened and then annoyed that I was bored and not finding a better use of my hearing ability.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. James again?

    NO. I doubt James's writing skill will improve at this point, and these books burned my so bad, I wont give her books a second look.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Becca Battoe?

    Hard to say, since the story sucked to begin with. Even the best of narrators would crash and burn with this story.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    Ana. Ridiculous, annoying, immature kid....I could deal with Christian's character flaws if Ana were gone...


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time if you are wanting a "steamy" story.
