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)
Yes, only because if the book is part of a triology I will finish what I began in hopes that the author presently is able to surprise me with a an unusual expected finish.
I am presently listening to part two of the 50 shades of grey.
The narrator in my opinion has an annoying pitch of tone, and an not so pleasant voice. Her attempts of changing between character's to imitate other people were dreadful. Her acting abilities were very poor. I would never choose to listen to Miss Becca again unfortunately.
I would cut all of the many repetitious header quotes about the to and from email messages ( Dear Mr. Christian Grey , title, date and time, content) as that was boring, repetitive, and unnecessary. Then I would edit out all of the repetition of the actions between the character's. As a reader it was an insult to my intelligence to imply that I last the ability of memory recall.
I'm a single mother of 2 great kids, and we live in a small town in MI with our 2 eccentric cats.
Overall, I enjoyed the way that the author tied the story together and "freed" the characters from their own demons that they fought daily. However, I felt that much of the epilogue portion of the book was redundant.
Becca Battoe's performance was similar to the first two books in the series.
Fewer redundant phrases. Oh my, was it me or was everyone muttering or murmuring? I was distracted by Ms. James' elementary vocabulary. My brown eyes were dark and burning. I wear my hair in a short natural. How many times can Mr. Grey tuck a wild strand of hair behind Ana's ear? Buy hairpins for her!
No... won't read HER books any more.
She slaughtered the French language. She must be young. There were English words she pronounced incorrectly. She transposed words and skipped others. Nuances in the written word were misinterpreted. She is not a great reader!
Any scenes involving previously used steps/phrases. Ms. James sorely needed a thesaurus!
Glad I completed the books. On to better reading...
less murmuring and flushing
less murmuring and flushing, better writing. Use a thesaurus. I literally winced every time either of those words was used. If it were a drinking game, Id be dead.
I wasnt going to listen to the 3rd book, but the way the 2nd book left off, I was intrigued.
I'm typically a murder, suspense, & thriller type reader; however, I'm expanding, exploring, & expanding my interests.
It kept me wanting more, but I don't think I'd read it again. I did read the first book twice though.
This series reminds me of the Bared series. I personally prefer Fifty.
The narration & performance was GREAT!
It took be about 2 days to finish this book.
I wasn't thrilled with how it ended for some reason...
not writing it at all
something from james patterson
when she tried to talk in a deep voice
major disappointment, I don't get all the hipe this series is getting it is no better than a cheap porn movie
This was the book I disliked the least. Too predictable. Ana too annoying. Too many returned phrases. Plus it starts of when they are already married and going through flashbacks which is something I didn't not like. It made me confused what was going on. This book wraps everything up in a nice little bow. You know she changes him to see the bright side. Everything becomes realized. It is just too neat. It started off as a book that was like normal life to a fantasy. The fight then have make up sex about two seconds later. They are horny all the time. Even in the epilogue. It was just too much and everything happens so fast and wrapped up too perfectly.
Also hate when she call him fifty.
This is the best thus far
I love the love story and all of the twists and secrets
Best book ever!
I wish there was a book 4, 5,6! I didn't want it to end!
yes. narrated beautifully.
Becca Battoe was amazing with such a complicated series of characters
when Christian admitted he loved his mother
