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 think the narrator has done a much better job with this book then the 2 previous books. I was so disappointed with her performance previously, this time it did not feel rushed & she did a better job of giving the characters life.
The story, in that Anastasia begins to act like an adult.
Read Anastasia as a more mature woman. Even at the projected age of 21, she was described as a no-nonsense character. But the performance turned her into a woman-child.
I couldn't wait for this to be over. If it was about a book and a half long, it would have been much better. Gotta give it E.L.James though, he can write pornography.
literary excellence not
Christian of course
Her voice and representation of the characters. I think another reader would have been better.
Laugh at times but no really EXTREME reaction
Other reviewers have really trashed the books in this series. The books did not promise to be great works of literature. The writing was said to be poorly done, the characters were criticized and just about everything else met with their disapproval. The books are what they are and if you are expecting a great Shakesperean romance or tragedy then you should pick up a copy of Romeo and Juliet or Othello. Yes, it did drag on in places and yes, there was much repetition (Oh my!), and yes, the character of Ana was immature and childlike and made bad decisions and Christian was overbearing and possessive (is that redundant?) and definitely a kinky sex crazed megalomaniac but going beyond the surface and the sex and looking deeper into the characters and the conflicts between them and themselves does provide some redemption of the books. I thought it was a great love story, I liked the way Christian evolved and I enjoyed listening to all three books. Would I recommend them? Yes. If all you read is heavy literary works and intense fiction this is a respite. Don't expect excellence in literature, this is romance for Christsake! Kind of kinky but just sit back and let yourself enjoy the stories as they unfold.
Chemistry that was portrayed between Anastasia and Christian
Anatasia. Her ability to gage the differences and research ,the thought of what if? Questions and curiosity of sex, faith, stand by convictions of what is right for her and wellness to try new things. Committed to letting Christian make his own decisions to change. Simply put the way managed her 1st love and the hardships the relationship endured.
Anastasia and Christian
Real adult film on sex bondage!
Don't believe they could make a movie that would do this book justice.
I'm glad to see them ending up together but why does everything always have to be going 150mph with this couple? Doesn't it just seem like some people just beg for everything to happen to them? The Grey's just seem to be that couple.
Yes, this book will never get old, the author does a great job, makes your imagination go crazy!
The scene when Anna was at the bank talking to Christian on the phone. It was such an emotional moment!
Erotic yet romantic.
I liked the ending when the Author told the story of when they met in Christians perspective, it makes me want to listen to the book all over again in his perspective, it would me like reading a different book
I really love this series. I think mostly because of the metamorphosis of Christian. He goes from a seriously messed up man in book 1 to a seriously flawed but loving husband and father in this book. The events of the book keep the flow of the story going as Christian finally faces up to all of the problems and joys of maintaining a true committed relationship with a life partner--not a temporary sub. Ana also arrives at a better level of maturity even though you sometimes want to grab them both out of the book and give them a good shake!!
yes and I have to many!
there is no comparison
I liked both main characters for many different reasons
the very thin line between pleasure and pain; the tragedy and loss of another can be someone's gain
I am absolutely saddened that this was the last I was so excited to read the second one and even more excited to see that there was a third. I am fully anticipating the movie but I sincerely hope that they are actually able to portray it the way it should be portrayed though it does tackle a taboo subject there is still a storyline mystery romance love and you learn about the psyche of someone who has been abused so badly and in the end gets everything grey goes from someone that you don't understand at all to someone that you are rooting for and if everyone can just get past the sexual content and realize there is more to this story and it is only part of it and fully understand what is happening they will enjoy the book for what actual education is emparted upon the reader. 50 shades of grey was my very first audible book and I read all three books in a matter of 2 weeks.
I was hit by a drunk driver and my comprehension is different and reading a actual paperback book is now difficult thanks to the audible books I can now enjoy reading again I want to be a voice over actor even more I want to help others like me enjoy reading and the world that opens up because of it!
Of course I have to get all 3 books and finish the story.. and I have to say that I was disappointed :/
I did like the end with the small bit from Greys point of view... but that was about it
I luv to read but since having my lil boy 11 mths ago hard to find the time to pick up a book so hello audible my life saver hahahahaha
