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 love to read southern fiction, family sagas, romance and a bit if fantasy
I read the kindle version of the first in the series. I wish I;d done that with the next two. The narrator was very distracting,
The couple falling in love and getting to know each other on a deeper level.There was more plot action in this one also. I like the idea of being loved in spite of your issues.
I was fine with her as Ana but her pronunciation of words needs work, The book needed a male for Christian.
Yes I listened to this one while I was very busy and I wanted to be left alone to finish.
I resisted getting these despite friends & family knowing I'd like the story. I shouldn't have waited so long, I adore a good love story.
I will not of course write anything negative. I love the series, Love the audio version of it. and can not wait for the movie to come out. Until then I will re read and listen to the audio book again. :)
I have not listened to anything else narrated by Becca Battoe.
Tons but I am not going to out myself ha.
Just a great book.
The writing has to be better than that of a young child...It is comparable to porn films calling themselves movies...
Same story line over and over
the ability to read a book without sitting down to read a book~
The first 2 books were better. Last one was really trying to grasp at straws. The other reviews talked about a male voice- it was all done by the female for my version
I would love to listen to this book again because it was very exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat! It made me want to know what the next exciting thing that was going to happen and it was always worth the wait.
I think Christian was my favorite character the way he was able to learn and feel what he had been through and was learning how to see why everything was the way it was and how he was able to change and get through the tough times. He was always learning and didn't ever give up.
Becca made each character with their own voice higher for Ana and lower for Christian and others were a little softer or louder when they each spoke. Made it so I knew who was speaking. She was very good.
This book is easily made to listen to for one sitting but a little to long for that! I did it in 4 sittings.
Anyone who is a little kinky would love this book. And it isn't too had core but it isn't for the weak at heart by any means.
This series was very good. I loved it and would highly recommend this series. Easy listen.
Yes I think I would.
Yes absolutely. As I mentioned in 2nd books review it could have ended there for me. But this one scratched the itch you generally get from some books about... What happened next?
Two scenes since they are companions... How Christian reacted when Anastasia told him the news and her subsequent confrontation the next morning.
I wouldn't mind a book that tells it from Christian's point of view. You get a glimpse of that in this book and I was intrigued. As for a follow up story... Other than scratching that itch again of what happens next I'm not sure what would make a good story. How they handle kinky sex-capades amidst the terrible twos???
Again a bit long winded in the beginning. Also the connection to the antagonist seems a bit too coincidental. Leaving it as a pissed off deranged ex-boss would have worked just fine and been more believable in my opinion.
avida por la lectura ...
well on the romance side it will be top 10 books.
how well the characters deal with each others needs.
the one at the end where all of them are walking on the meadow towards their home.
it made me cry.
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.
