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)
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!!
I could not stop listening and now I feel as I'm going through with draw. I would love to read it from the other characters point of view. Don't want to give anything away but want to know what the future holds with family and friends.
A must listen!!!!!!
I did not read the books
she was able to change her voice for the charater and made it very believable
Say something about yourself!
Yes because I like the voice of the reader.
That Christin finally opened up to Ana in the end.
Here voice was great for the book kept me wanting to listen more.
Yes. If I would I would have listen to the book in one day.
Love this book. I hope there is more to come was left hanging at the end.

If the narrator could have changed her voice more to suit the other characters. She wasn't good at changing her voice.
It brought the entire series full circle to a logical ending.
Anna Steele - her own emotion and growing understanding comes thru in her voice, as if she is going thru this and learning about this dark man and his world for real!
At first I was a little confused - it was like the Jack character and his back story was added at the last minute of book two...to give purpose for a book 3. But it did end well and I liked the epilogue revisiting the characters a few years down the road.
A definite MUST Listen...anxious to see how they will put this into a film.
This is well written and very well presented. The banter between characters is to die for!
I listened to the Triology, I did not read the print version.
I have not read any romance books let alone erotic fiction so I can't compare.
Absolutely, it broke my heart.. and I held my breath most of the Triology praying Christian would not slip back into S & M. That he could allow himself to find healing and to be loved.
To me it is a wonderful love story about a broken, tortured young man that found real love for the first time and this love begins to heal him. And it is about a young woman that fell in love for the first time and the person she loves happens to be very broken. It shows her committment and fortitude to this person and shows how she refuses to give up on their relationship and how she is determined to make it work. Her attitude of stickto-itiveness is a lost art. I feel that the story shows that they are walking through their pain and darkness together into the light of a loving, trusting relationship. I have never read/listened to heavy romance novels, let alone an Erotic Fiction book before, but I am a child of the sixties so I was not ignorant of this world ; but knowledge and expertise are two different things, so I blushed a number of times needless to say, but then again, I also blushed (died) in the movie "The Graduate" when it first came out! Therefore there were too many sex scenes for me, but if you are into this kind of reading for the sex you should enjoy it. I did not consider this hard core S and M, or what I understood S and M to be. I would not recomend this reading for the young and the innocent.. TMI!! :-) Good luck in your read.
At first, I just saw this trilogy mentioned in a magazine. Then I saw, after I downloaded it, that it was supposed to be a really sexy book about Sado-masochism (sp?). I almost asked audible to take them back. But, fortunately, I decided to give them a chance. The books are really well written and are less about BDSM than a psychological and romantic and sexy exploration. Actually, a really good read. The reader was well chosen; she sounds correct for the character she portrays. If you are curious, give it a listen...you won't regret it. Unless, of course, you are adverse to sexually graphic literature.
