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.

    Story
    "Was hoping for more"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Borderline entertaining. Obviously enough that I listened to all three books. Perhaps because it was hyped so much I was expecting more. I found the dialog to be predictable and the plot pretty cookie cutter. I did enjoy some of the email exchanges.


    Would you be willing to try another book from E. L. James? Why or why not?

    Not really


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    I didn't really have a favorite - they were all "beautiful" people living in a world that is so out of touch with 99.9% of us that I didn't identify with anyone.


    Did Fifty Shades Freed inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Many people talking about the book made comments that it was demeaning to women. I disagree - Christian was the one who changed the most. And as long as two adults agree, what the do behind closed doors is their business.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Freed to be better than the print version?

    I have read and I have listened and I think both ways were fantastic.


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

    When Christian realizes what Mrs. Robinson really was!!!

    I liked the passion she reads with


    Any additional comments?

    Ian Somerhaulder would be the PERFECT Christian. MMMMMMM

    Story
    "Bla...."
    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    I would try another E.L. James book. I'm sure her books would be a little bit better written now that she has written her first trilogy. In regards to Becca Battoe... I wouldn't completely bash her as these books are intense. So, you almost had to be the perfect reader must have the sensual voice and also the sexy masculin voice.


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

    The pregnancy and everyone's reaction to it. The least interesting was all the sex during the honeymoon. I think there was too much of it and felt the need to skitp through those parts.


    What aspect of Becca Battoe’s performance would you have changed?

    If I could change anything it would be her performance with all the sex intensity and men's voices.


    Could you see Fifty Shades Freed being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think a series would be best on HBO.... given all the sex and the different stories (climax) that could be put into different episodes.


    Any additional comments?

    I would Not re-read 50 Shades Freed.

    "Really was unsure if I liked this story"
    Where does Fifty Shades Freed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed listening to this story rather than reading it, however the voices threw me...just not enough seperation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The beginning of a story plot.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Becca Battoe's other performances.


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

    When Anna was beyond what she would/could allow and left. I felt her pain.


    Any additional comments?

    Was'nt sure I'm finnish the 3 books, but I'm glad I did.

    "A nice finally"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would and have recommended this one to several people


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought the writer brought this to a nice conclusion. Nothing was left unanswered.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OH MY!!!


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

    No. I read books at lunch, and listen to audio when I'm in transit.


    Any additional comments?

    When i started this trilogy, the first book left me flat for the most part. However, I was curious about the characters. It kept getting better, or (did that just happen). I just had to find out what was next. I'm glad that I did.

    Story
    "Surprise! Besides the sex I hated it!"
    What would have made Fifty Shades Freed better?

    More sex, less therapy and character shock that they have higher esteem for one another than for themselves.


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

    Nope. I'll happily read other books of this type if the author owns and uses a thesaurus.


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

    She was fine. She couldn't help the material she was given. We all need a paycheck, eh?


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    Anastasia Steele. She should've accidentally asphyxiated from the S and M in the first one. "Oops! I just killed her-gotta find a submissive that will actually use the 'safe' word like she flippin' agreed to..." Ya know?


    Any additional comments?

    I know, I know. I listened to all three. Get over it. Besides the poor use of the great English language, the sex turned me on and my husband was pleased with the results, even if he did have to hear me complain about the quality, or lack thereof, of the writing.

    Story
    "Loved It. Smart heroine."
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Freed?

    Great and loving story. Anna is smart and capable. So unlike alot of these books. Really like the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I so much like Anna with her passion for her career and for Christian. It is about love and understanding, in spite of all the sex. I always dislike sex scenes. But in this book they really are part of the story. Very eye-opening.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Such a soothing and kind voice. She does Anna so well. I fell in love with the character immediately.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The fairy prince is loved and tamed by the fairy princess...


    Any additional comments?

    This is so well done. A modern day Cinderella yet she would have done fine if all of this never happened. She deserved all the magic.

    Story
    "shallow like a Barbie doll play of little girls"

    Narrative is shallow, characters infantile. Like little girls playing with Barbie dolls. Only one thought at a time in the head, and the thought is written all over the face so they always know what everybody else is thinking. It is either black or white, no grey shades. She is either a stubborn idiot or a mindless sheep. She turns overnight from virginity into a sex maniac. They are so modest they cover their nakedness and call the organs her sex and his erection – how hypocritical can you get! The other characters exist only for the lead couple's convenience and can be taken out of the doll house only at the times needed.

    There is so much repetition that the tale is extremely boring even though there is an attempted rape or murder or a severe accident or other such calamity on a daily basis. The entity could easily be fitted into one volume and the message would be conveyed just as well.
    The author is true to her idols with only slight updating: in Jane Eyre's days a bridal veil was being slashed while today it is Audi tyres.
    As real life is complex and has more levels than either/or, I listened to the entire trilogy to the very end despite my feelings of nausea and disgust. While despising myself along with the rest of the shallow folks who consume this kind of crap for their entertainment I was urged to see if there would not be a jewel hidden some place after all. As the story went on with no jewel appearing I found myself hoping he'd at least get assassinated to put the irritating story out of its misery. Even that satisfaction wasn't granted, so my only gain was getting my American collocuialims updated as not hearing English let alone American being spoken that often degrades the language.

    But Becca Battoe performs well!

    "Read it don't bother listening it..."
    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was horrible. Her voice for Christen Grey was awful! For lack of a better description she made him sound like a transvestite with a cold. I had to give up and go back to reading the book. I just could handle listening to her anymore.
