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)
Yes! I loved the storyline and the dynamic between Anna and Christian
Absolutely not! It has increase my interest. It gets my out of my murder mystery genre that I usual stay with.
She has a wonderful voice, easy to listen too!
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Yes and just because of Becca Battoe. This series by E L James was ok, yep just OK. The first book was very good but then it started to fall apart, Other then Becca Battoe who gave the limp writing life and still made you want to listen. I never would have read it after the half way through the second book in the series. It should have just ended at book one.
I would say the two mains, Steele and Grey but Becca did a great job with them all. Hope she does many more books.
The end, I was so happy it was finally over. I did enjoy the red room and the way Becca read it.
Becca Battoe, listen to a master at her craft take a story that gets weak with each page and she makes it a great listen.
Enticing, intriguing, addictive!
It made me care for these characters, think about them when not listening... It wakened a part of me that'd been asleep for quite some time. Will listen again.
Yes, very naughty, but great, original story. Captures every part of you and won't let go-& you won't want it too!
Yes! The plot is intriguing, the characters are even more interesting than the first, and the ending is great!
The best of the three.
...but not me. I will make this a brief review. If you are an avid reader, please don't pick this book up. Maybe, possibly read the first one. And by read I mean READ. I positively adore Audible books but this narration combined with the most abhorrent prose (dare I even call it prose) is downright painful. I read the first two and listened to the last. I will never get that time back and so I beg you don't walk down the same road. The narrator (hopefully only reading 50 Shades) sounds like a constipated teenager trying to sound sexy in spite of her mouth guard. The book, in my opinion, really serves to belittle the complex sexuality and intelligence of the average American woman in her 30-40's. We are smarter! We are sexier! We don't "trip over our own feet" (who on earth does this anyway?) And I hope we know more about sex, intimacy and relationships than Ana does. She is the dumbest ivy league grad ever described. Let's all take a journey back to real literature and if we want to be stimulated let's read The Story of O.
I enjoyed the entire series of 50 Shades and they have to be among the most interesting to me.
My favorite scenes were at the end of the book. The chance to get a look of how the child Christian felt after being adopted and how the couple grew together in the future.
They're one in the same to me.
I've never read anything like this before so I really don't know.
I've very impressed the Becca Battoe
Yes, actually it was.
Absolutely. But be prepared to give up the majority of your life once you get started with it because you can't put it down.
She did a great job except with the baby's voice. I thought that was pretty painful.
This book was by far the best of the trilogy. (spoiler alert) - I was glad there was a happy ending...and by happy ending, I mean REALLY HAPPY ending. After all the termoil all they needed was each other!
Sorry it had to end, but glad it ended the way it did!!
