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)
Im just starting to get into reading so i have nothing to compare to.
I love the ending with their son and another on the way.
Nope. Neither one of these ladies appeals to me.
I told my friends to wait for the movie. This might be one of those cases where the movie is actually better than the book.
The scenes were fine.
I liked Christian's story. This three book saga would have been better if told from the hero's perspective or third person narration. Choosing to narrate the story through a first person account of the most annoying character in the book made it harder to get through the story.
I would and have recommended this book. This book is more focused on the growing relationship of the characters. The desire of the couple is still there but it's not a constant sex scene like the first book which I liked.
My favorite character is Anna. She is really growing and maturing. It's wonderful and painful to see her trying to hard to please this man.
I listened to her from the first of the series and I think she's fine. Others don't like her but I see it's because they listened to a previous version that has another narrator.
I wanted to listen to this book in one day and if I had more then 1 credit a month I would have but I broke up my reading into 2 weeks.
A must read or hear, as this is Audible. So would ever think sex in words could be so hot? Ann Steele is a frustrating character. She over thinks everything and while I understand that it's suppose to be a part of her charm, I find it not so charming. Christian on the other had is very endearing and his controlling side is distrubingly hot! So would have thought?
Christian Gray is the best part of this story. His deep passion and dark mysterious past that shapes his present.
The voice of Christian in a fake male voice by the performer is very distracting which is why everyone tells me reading this a better choice. Should have listened to them.
Seriously, every bad review nailed it on the head for me, but I'm an optimist and assumed incorrectly that it was all an exaggeration, like naysayers saying nay. For the first time in my life, I was wrong. This book sucked. The listening would've been at least entertaining if the narrator followed the authors instructions.....the author said the character hissed....how do you hiss a word without any s sounds.quite a feat.this annoyed me.also, does becca not know how to mutter? I heard it said a hundred times, but not once did she verbally express it.
No. I thought the first book was a long intro.the second book was like the first.I thought this book would finally give a story, but all it did was throw together a bunch of events and lame sex, even by vanilla standards.at this point, I'm considering googling the author to see how fat and ugly and old she is, because that's how she sounds.I'm certain this is a woman.men might be simple, but they aren't this repetitive, and I've only met across few women this dumb but none of them have ever orgasms without a hand.
I thought becca did alright....she sounded clueless, just like the inner dialogue of the character....I don't know if anyone can mutter the way the author intended....maybe Jim Carrey....
Leila.unnecessary drama, unlikely, unbelievable.
Just believe the one star reviews next time.they are better written anyways.
The story was very good
She brought it to life as if you we're really there
I think this book was the best out of the three because it had a thrilling story other than just the sex and bondage. It gets old to hear that someone is doing it AGAIN. This one just had a story with more substance to it.
Becca Battoe was an excellent narrator! She made it easy to understand and fun to listen to her!
Yes...I can't get enough of the growing relationship between Christian & Anastasia
Bared to you series...
