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 Thought it was going to be hard to beat the 1st book but she did
She is wonderful
When they are having a picnic with the kids
I love to listen to audiobooks. especially if the reader is good in different voices for each caracter..
since i havent "read" the print version i cannot answer this questions
if you have to compare than i would say with Twilight writer Stephanie Meyers. the same way of telling the stories out of the sight of Bella / Anastasia.
James also provides a short view of Christian in the last book of "Fifty" which is really awesome. i hope she will finish the story also out of the view from Christian.
Not that i am aware off
the first book left me crying and thats why i had to listen to the second right after it.
Yes because I like the variation of voices and being able to picture the scenes in my head because I'm drawing a picture as the narrator speaks.
The most interesting wa getting to the bottom of 50 shades ealy life.
Ana she was tough and reminds me of myself.
Some days but I wa listening to it so often I was losing sleep.n
I wish there were actually a Christian Grey out there but there aren't so I'll settle to red the books .
The ending wasn't expected but exciting. It went deeper into the characters past connecting their present situations. Unexpected connection with the villian's (Jack's) past.
Christian Grey. He showed the full scope of a a tragic beginning, fairy tale rescue and unbelieveable success. It shows the full scope of human emotion and a character that you wanted to succeed emotionally.
At times, because of the explicit sexual descriptions made the reading shocking. It did give the reading a more dramatic effect. Even with that very enjoyable.
It caused me to want to have the next installment of Fifty Shades ready for downloading the closer I came to the end of each book.
I hope there will be more books in the Fifty Shades story. There are other characters that can be explored. Christians parents, and siblings.
I loved the ending and how it all worked out. Anastasia did not give in and did not let him control everything.
Anastasia was not selfish and saved his sister.
I loved this book and I can't wait for the movie.
This book was totally awesome. It was one that I just couldn't put down. The narrator was totally awesome....she made the characters just come to life. This book can make you blush, make you mad, make you just bust out laughing and just totally captivate you. I loved it and I have already read: Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed...which are also totally awesome....when done with all of them you are still left wanting more...Loved it, loved it....a Must Read....You won't be disappointed.
All of it....It all comes together so well to make a great story.
She is totally awesome.....She makes the characters come to life. Her expressions would just make you burst out laughing because you could mentally just see the character as she was saying it.
I think when they both realized that they both wanted each other it was game on and from there it was just awesome....
This is a MUST READ....
Yes I would recommend this book, infact I have already. In order to do so, however I would warn my friends to not pass judgment until they finish the series and it is a series and does not quite stand up alone.
My most memorable moment of the book was Christian's reaction to Bella telling him she was pregnant. He was totally out of control.
I was moved by the epilogue when Christian was a little boy and it was Christmas, He would not speak.
To E.L. James. I wish you had told what happened to Jack. In fact I would have had Taylor get him killed in jail. I also think that you could have slowed things down just a little.I hope one day you will revisit Ana and Christian. I loved the characters and the story. The sex, was fun but repetitious, the characters will remain with me forever.
Hot, Sexy, Cinderella story
Knowing that Christian has become a happy father.
At first the romance grabs you in the first book, then the story line makes you want to finish it.
There is a lot of sex, but it is well written in that regard. Not your typical romance novel vocabulary. Those tend to make you roll your eyes, Fifty Shades makes you need a cold shower.
It was a fun and easy read.
Well.... it made my husband happy.
Definitely a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. Could not put it down!
When Ana wakes up in the hospital and realizes that Christian truly loves her (and blip).
Explore the delicious conflict between the id and the superego
I wish there was a set of 3 companion books, written from Christian's perspective!
