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.

OK, first of all I loved the book I just didn't like the reader!
Christian - DUH!!!!!
Seriously!!!??? Why ask this? Did anyone seriously listen to this before it went into publishing? Anyone?
I LOVED THE BOOK! Just not the reader. The story was good.
NO further comments :(
The narration was dissappointing
The voices were to similar, needed to have the book to differentiate
One of the best.
How Grey slowly learned to love and let go of his traumas.
A different reader. She sucked.
Seriously, choose a different reader. This girl makes the weirdest noises, and makes everything sound so rehearsed.
Never enjoyed books until audible and now I'm an addict.
The whole "husband" "love him soo much" "mrs. grey" nonsense was a little hard to take at the beginning. Luckily the story picks up towards the middle. Just hit fast forward a lot in the beginning.
I loved absolutely everything about this book!
it is very hard to say, i was completed all in one go. Could not stop listening.
She is just the best narrator! You will not fill it 100% if you just read it..
not particularly... the whole story was just amazing
I have read the entire series, and I enjoyed the stories, but the narrator was a bit of a joke.
In the top 100. It's not my favorite genere, but still quite entertaining. Also keep in mind, I am an avid reader and audio book listener, I have probably gone through about 1000 audio books in the last 10 years.
The main characters were finally able to come into their own. There was a sort of peaceful feeling that came towards the end of the book. The epilouge was a nice surprise and exceptionally informative.
Her interpretation of the character's personas and personalities. I read the first book of the 50 Shades series and listened to the last two. I had a much different perception of the characters tones of voice, use of inflections and levels of sarcasm while I read as opposed to listening to Becca Battoe. Different is not indicative of better or worse.
Hard work pays off. :-)
Say something about yourself!
For all that the writing is a bit childish, it has it's moments of bizarre fascination. Becca Battoe's voice really highlights all that is wrong with the book, so that's a negative. On the positive side, there is something engrossing about watching these two characters come together despite themselves.
Let me first say, I've listened to the entire trilogy in less than 7 days.
This book was my least favorite. Battoe, the narrator, I've grown accustomed to. Reading some of the chapters of the actual book, I find I prefer the audio version to print, due to the repetitious nature of the author's phrases, descriptions and words.
The final book in the trilogy, i was tired of hearing every detail of the couple's copulation every other hour of a day. I appreciated that James cut it short at times, the other times, i just set the playback to x1.5 (thanks Audible!) To me, this final installment related a lot to the Twilight series, which I wasn't particularly fond of. I found myself impatient to get back to the story line rather than dwell in sexual details that we are all very apt to at this point.
However, the brief action is good, the storyline is entertaining and the epilogue was interesting and enticing enough to make me feel like I am now empty inside not having the trilogy to listen to every free hour of my days.
Just getting started at audible, looking forward to some good books! I work in a library, you would think I would get tired of books but I don't ever get to read so I am going to listen :).
Was very romantic
I listened to the rest of the series, it was great
Made me not want to put it down
Wish it would have kept going!!
