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.
I love happy endings and this is really sweet. Ana really comes into her own in this book and she is a strong, loving wife.
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.
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.
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.
All the murmuring, smirking, muttering. Detailed descriptions of what characters were wearing, and every description followed an utterance by the vapid Ana about how "hot" Christian is. Ridiculous story line. Terrible writing. Even the sex became routine and boring and I had to fast forward through those parts to get to the funny part (that were not meant to be funny). Oh, and how does Ana, the 22 year old editor of a publishing house (right) get anything done when all she does at work is send idiotic emails to her "hot" boyfriend? Barf!!!!
Not write it.
Ana and Christian.
I love to read, so I would have enjoyed the print too. But, this audio was great.
Christian Grey, Ana Steele
When Christian talked to Ana about little blimp.
50 something listener loves ending the day lost in a good book.
Lots of answers and questions about Christian's past. Hope there is more to come with more answers.
I would recommend this book over and over again. I hope E L james makes a trilogy based on what Mr. Gray was thinking.
Christian. He had me so hot and bothered. I loved him.
I think she did a great job with all the characters.
When christian thought she was going leave him again and he became the Submissive.
This book was so awesome. I hope E L James takes my advice and PLEASE make books based on what Christian was thinking.
Becca Battoe does such a good job of bringing all the characters to life. I am listening to these books over and over they are so good.
Annastatia and Kate, Annastatia because of her profound development throughout the story. Kate because of just who she was. I loved all the characters in this book because they had the best dialogue and story to tell. Anna's phrases is describing things, Red Room of Pain, Submissive Special, etc.
Too many to say, the constant development of Christian and Anna is so riviting throughout all three books.
From Ordinary to Extrodinary
This series has blown up in a way that isn't surprising...the idea is sexy, and bright...the delivery of the story is extremely simple and remarkable only in that it could really have been brilliant if it had been written by someone with talent...Like Diana Gabaldon maybe? The narration by Becca Battoe might have been the worst mistake-she sounds like an idiot.. reading awful dialog. OK, so-the author is clearly a novice, and the book was written as fan mail for the Twilight series, and it follows so closely I am surprised that Stephanie Meyer doesn't get some kind of kick back for providing the entire sub plot... Again, I really like the basis of the story, I am really disappointed in the final product. This book is a prime example of what suckers the consumers are. This all was-and should have remained ONE novel, the fact that it was broken into three $30 books so that it could become 4 movies is one that Americans will (hopefully) get wise to, and stop feeding. NOT worth almost $100 - I mean "Holy Moses" folks!
Like a pornographic film, the plot of this book is very thin, totally unbelieveable, not especially well-written, yet the sexual aspect and one's own imagination makes it just barely interesting enough to finish the book. There is certainly no intrigue to keep one awake wondering what happens next, so it does make for ideal bedtime reading.
I am so glad and feel fulfilled that the story has come to what seems to be a full circle. But, I see many ways that other books come be written for the story to continue.
becca bring the story to life.
The drama never ends! I love that growth of the relationship continues
