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)
Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.
I heard the raves and read the reviews and finally I decided to see for myself what the hoopla was. Well were to start, most of the time while listening to the book I kept saying to the main character to get the hell away from this man. I see why some women would be attracted to a man they thing only they can fix, but ladies I am sure you were not the first one to try and fix him and will not be the last. A controlling, arrogant, dom man who is attracted to a nieve young girl, who oh ya happens to be a vargin also is not the man for me. I like the heros not the ones who need a lot of therapy.
The sex scenes were intense and I thought this more to be a x rated book than a good read. I would hope younger girls dont read this and use it for a role model on what to look for in a man.
The main characters were fairly well defined, but many of the minor characters were similar or indistinguishable.
No. I've had enough 50 shades
This series is very demeaning to women. In the sexual aspect I can see how it is freeing for many to read, and how some women are glad to hear their darker fantasies are not strange. However, the main character had very little backbone and it was hard to stomach at times. She went with the flow and very rarely stood up for herself, and what she wanted.
When I started this series I honestly thought that I would hate it. I thought it would be nothing but smut & trash. I was so very wrong, this was the most beautiful story of unconditional love, commitment, & the melding of two totally opposite worlds into one. I was utterly spellbound & thoroughly impressed beyond all expectations.
It ranks high, however I'm a new audiobook member with only six book in my library.
OMG, when Ana shot Jack.
When Ana was in the hospital.
I laughed throughout all the Fifty Shades books. Becca Battoe did and excellent job.
Christian Grey because although he had issues and was very "mercurial" he was strong yet vulnerable, romantic in his own hot and sexy way.
How she was able to give each character a different voice and she stuck to it the whole time.
Overlook the negative reviews. This trilogy is fantastic and the narrator did a great job!!
Because it was totally a unique reading experience. I didn' want to put the book down!
it's 3 books long, but it really is hard to stop listening to it.
I wish there were More 50 Shades of Gray, lol.
This has got to be the best book I have listened to ever!
Christian and Anastasia, their chemistry is amazing
She is an amazing reader, I forget it's just her sometimes
Yes! I loved the storyline and the dynamic between Anna and Christian
Absolutely not! It has increase my interest. It gets my out of my murder mystery genre that I usual stay with.
She has a wonderful voice, easy to listen too!
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Yes and just because of Becca Battoe. This series by E L James was ok, yep just OK. The first book was very good but then it started to fall apart, Other then Becca Battoe who gave the limp writing life and still made you want to listen. I never would have read it after the half way through the second book in the series. It should have just ended at book one.
I would say the two mains, Steele and Grey but Becca did a great job with them all. Hope she does many more books.
The end, I was so happy it was finally over. I did enjoy the red room and the way Becca read it.
Becca Battoe, listen to a master at her craft take a story that gets weak with each page and she makes it a great listen.
Enticing, intriguing, addictive!
It made me care for these characters, think about them when not listening... It wakened a part of me that'd been asleep for quite some time. Will listen again.
Yes, very naughty, but great, original story. Captures every part of you and won't let go-& you won't want it too!
