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.

"In a class by itself." (Entertainment Weekly)
I am obsessed with the book, but the audiobook version is also very entertaining! But I wish the Christian character performed by a male narrator
Loved the trilogy but was left wanting more from the perspective of Christian. There should be books on his narrative from start to finish. When will we get relief? For now this will do. I encourage everyone to get swept up in the love story!
YESS! it was such a cute story (not talking about their intimate relationship)
fifty shades of grey,and fifty shades darker. they are all from the same series and are also GREAT!
nope, all of it
there needs to be more books added to the series, it was so great. i would love to be part of the movie. maybe as the daughter as a teen! :)
Being My Best
This is a very well written series about two people with their own set of challenges to overcome. I think the average person might judge this series as way outside of the usual, but when we consider the dysfunction in our own families, these two characters are not all that unusual. This is a story much more about change, compromise and the working out of the most important relationship in our lives.
The metamorphosis of Christian is the most memorable part of the series.
At first I didn't like her "Christian" voice ~ but it became more Christian like.
No way. I liked savoring this book.
Read it. Listen to it. Enjoy it.
I love this trilogy! I read it in print first but instead of re-reading I decided to listen instead. It's kind of hard to get past the female voice speaking Christian's words but, if you can get past that, it's well worth the price.
Yes, only because if the book is part of a triology I will finish what I began in hopes that the author presently is able to surprise me with a an unusual expected finish.
I am presently listening to part two of the 50 shades of grey.
The narrator in my opinion has an annoying pitch of tone, and an not so pleasant voice. Her attempts of changing between character's to imitate other people were dreadful. Her acting abilities were very poor. I would never choose to listen to Miss Becca again unfortunately.
I would cut all of the many repetitious header quotes about the to and from email messages ( Dear Mr. Christian Grey , title, date and time, content) as that was boring, repetitive, and unnecessary. Then I would edit out all of the repetition of the actions between the character's. As a reader it was an insult to my intelligence to imply that I last the ability of memory recall.
I'm a single mother of 2 great kids, and we live in a small town in MI with our 2 eccentric cats.
Overall, I enjoyed the way that the author tied the story together and "freed" the characters from their own demons that they fought daily. However, I felt that much of the epilogue portion of the book was redundant.
Becca Battoe's performance was similar to the first two books in the series.
Fewer redundant phrases. Oh my, was it me or was everyone muttering or murmuring? I was distracted by Ms. James' elementary vocabulary. My brown eyes were dark and burning. I wear my hair in a short natural. How many times can Mr. Grey tuck a wild strand of hair behind Ana's ear? Buy hairpins for her!
No... won't read HER books any more.
She slaughtered the French language. She must be young. There were English words she pronounced incorrectly. She transposed words and skipped others. Nuances in the written word were misinterpreted. She is not a great reader!
Any scenes involving previously used steps/phrases. Ms. James sorely needed a thesaurus!
Glad I completed the books. On to better reading...
