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.

    "BAD WRITER AND WORSE NARRATOR!"
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Freed?

    What i'm more disappointed in is that I used my credits for theses three dumb books. I rather go read the twilight serious again. It seem like a 7th grader wrote this junk. And the dumb emails with the mixture of the narrator. UGH. I just wanted to grab that stupid girl, Ana and give her a slap, but that is what expected from this author. The dumb sex scene.the first one is tolerable, but as she goes on, they become so unbelievable that its so damn laughable than erotic. Dumb Anna, orgasms at the drop of a hat. She is suppose to be a college graduate and through the whole reading this dumb story I just picture a stupid 15 year old. DUMB DUMB DUMB! O WISH I HAD MY CREDITS BACK!


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    She was REALLY BAD. Especially being Christian! Ugh!


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    All of them!


    Any additional comments?

    I would like my credits back!

    "What can I say?"

    I am glutton for punishment. Purchasing the third novel of this wretched series was more an exercise of finishing what I started than anything else. It was terrible. The author showed less than zero growth...she may have gotten worse. Is that possible?

    "Snoozer"
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Freed?

    If the narrator actually participated in the book, such as change of voice when doing male vs female, and scene changes. Every time I listen to this book I found myself falling asleep. I thought it was just me, but after 3 different people tried we all agree that it was the narrator.


    Has Fifty Shades Freed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    Story
    "Narration was painful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    NO, I would recommend Janet Evanovitch, Jennifer Cruises or Deborah Harkness.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This book does have an intense part towards the middle end but I don't want to give it away.


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

    ANYONE who knows how to pronounce so many words you mispronounced it was painful!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    NO, I listened to Pratchett, Gaiman and Cruises interchangeably with this book so I could get through it as a promise to a friend.


    Any additional comments?

    Who ever is supposed to be directing the narrator on this one really screwed up.

    Story
    "Oh My"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator. I read the first two books, so it is possible that I already had a thought in my mind as to what the characters should sound like.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Quit using the same stupid sayings throughout the book. I seriously hate the words Oh My and will probably cringe when I hear it in the future. OVERUSED Also who cares what the date and time is for every single email that was sent between Christian and Ana.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator did not seem to grasp the feelings that the characters were having due to the way she enunciated the words.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I did enjoy the content of the book overall minus the comments above.

    "READ the books. DON'T Listen To This Series."
    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Yes to E.L. James
    No to Becca Battoe.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades Freed to and why?

    I have never listened to or read a book like it.


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    I read the 1st two books in the series which is not typical for me. I listen to the majority of books I choose. However, I am going to spend more money and buy the 3rd book for my ipad kindle. I listened to the 1st part of this book and was extremely disappointed. The reader is extremely miscast for this book. She changes the complexion of the book, making it far less than it is. Please do not waste your money. Unfortunately this book has to be read not listened to.

    I am sorry to be so negative about the reader. I am sure she would do much better with a book that was more appropriate for her reading style.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 1st time I am reviewing a book even though I have been an audible member for many years. Since I usually listen to my books, I was surprised how disappointing it was to switch from reading the first two books in this series to listening to the third. With the popularity of this series it should have been read by a superior cast, similar to how "The Help" was produced.

    Story
    "Love the book....Narrator not so much"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Freed to be better than the print version?

    I would not, and only because the Narrator isn't very good. She mispronounces many words in the book and a good many of them numerous times so you know it wasn't a simple mistake. Tentatively was "tenatively" and Clamber she pronounces the "B" when she shouldn't. These are just a couple of examples that kept standing out. In addition to that I think she failed to capture Anastasia’s tone a lot of the time. She was very whiney and irritating at times. And her whole attempt on Christian and other males was just ridiculous and couldn't be taken seriously. Not to leave out her attempt at a Hispanic accent was beyond bad.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Christian. A lot of his personality and his need for control and all around stand-offishness reminds me of my husband and that helped me really transport myself into the story and experience it for myself.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    I would not.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and came pretty darn close to it too.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this book and the other two as well. They are very well written aside from her whole inner godess references, I just don't think that was necessary. That and the back and forth of emails the went on and on and on seemed like a cheap way of fleshing out the book. Other than that it was outstanding.

    "Release"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Freed again? Why?

    Probably but it needs a different narrator


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades Freed?

    Her pregnancy, the turmoil & strong wills.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator, & better pronouncation.


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

    The meadow & her second pregnancy. The joy & happiness that was finally found.


    Any additional comments?

    I would enjoyed the information about his childhood at the beginning of Fifty Shades. It would have made everything more realistic.

    I loved this series! Though, I enjoyed reading it more than I enjoyed listening to it. The narration isn't the worst that I've heard, but definitely doesn't top my list.
