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)
This book and the two previous ones could only be appealing to a teenager but the content is totally inappropriate for that audience. The misunderstandings and the fights put me in mind of my own daughters when they were in high school. And the whole idea of not liking the money is exceptionally unbelievable. Why not have the character of Anastasia do good with the money instead of running around Seattle fearing the money? While Becca Battoe does a great job of voicing all of the characters, the constant sex gets old after the first 50 pages. There needed to be more involvement with other characters who are not having sex.
As per many novels in the Romantic(SEX) venue, too much of a good thing becomes boring! No one over the age of 15 believes that men or women either for that matter, have multiple orgasms within hours of each other much less in 30 minutes as some of the scenarios would have the reader believe
The only part I really like are the Subconscious and the Inner Goddess I do like the way those two war with each other.
There was hardly any story line. The portions of the book that were exciting were not well developed and fell short of entertaining the listener.
Change the way she said phases that were commonly repeated.
E.l. James should have stopped after the second book.
I would defiantly recommend this to a friend and I have. I absolutely love all 3 books. I wished they could go on and on. I think that E.L. James should do the books in Christain's perspective. Can't wait for the movie to come out!
I loved all her changes of voice in characters when called for. It helped me visualize and imagine the way they would sound. Great job.
The pregnancy part really moved me. The way he yelled at her and called her stupid. And the way their intense argument went, it was heart felt.
Please write more on 50.
Yes.... My husband and I listened together making the book even more enjoyable...
Absolutely..... I loved the way she portrayed each character in a voice that was their own...
Very much so
After a while the "kinky fuckery" in detail became annoying and we wanted them to just get on with the story.... Of course this was our third book of it.....
I loved the story line of how the relationship changed from a causal sex relation to a actual compassion for caring about the partner. I was on edge with the suspense all the time. It's unpredictable at times but predicable at others. I loved every turn and heights. It was a great book and I hope I can get the next book. It's on my wish list.
I the subject matter a little intriguing but interesting at times.
Yes, by give both the main character's an clear identity of who they were at the beginning of their relationship and how they work the the relationship to make it successful. She was a independent lady who new who she was and what she wanted from a partner. He was a self made man who came from a unpleasant background and survive through his mental illness and still functioned within the business world. I love seeing that they both came from humble beginnings and she came to money by her stepfather and he came to money by adoption.
I thought she tried too hard imitating character's voices and when she did that I kind of lost me at the beginning but I got though it after chapter 5.
I would love it if you could possibly have to narrators instead of one or find some whom come present both sex characters instead.
I don't remember a time that I didn't read. I love numerous genre including mystery, thriller, historical. erotic romance, horror.
Yes. But they would need to reed the first 2 books in the trilogy first. This books brings it all together. Christian is able to face his past and really put it behind him. He learned to except the love of his family and to realize that family is important.
Anastasha was my favorite character because she was thrown into a situation that she knew nothing about and handled herself with aplomb. She stayed strong in her limits and helped Christian break down the walls in his life.
She gave Anastasha a personality that maynot be the same as I would have given her just reading.
When Christian found Ana after she had been taken by Jake. Ana was hurt and Christian realized how important the baby was to him and how very important Ana was in his life.
The writing is pretty bad - the plot is predictable and the author needs a thesaurus for descriptive words because she uses the same handful of words over and over and over again. The female protagonist is described by other characters as being intelligent, but I fail to see that actually demonstrated in any of the internal monolog; in fact, the dialog throughout the trilogy is much the same--trite. The narration is OK, but I'm not sure if that's because of the narrator or the deficient writing. On the other hand, the love scenes are very tantalizing and plentiful, making the series worthwhile.
I cannot understand how the ratings for this trilogy were 4.0 and above. I, too, gave in to the hype and struggled thru the entire trilogy in an effort to understand. Fortunately, I was able to secure the first two books from the library, so I was only out money for this 3rd book. The writing is mediocre at best, and Becca Battoe's narration is NOT engaging. "Oh my", please save me from this "kinky f-kery". I did not find the books worth my time. That said, if you must try this series, I would skip the first two books and just read this one -- it's the best of the lot.
Would not listen again because I already know the story.
How the book ended. Was magical and I loved it.
Because Battoe did an excellent job reading this story. She was the perfect story teller for this story.
Find out how deep love can be
You must listen to book one and two first. 50 shades of Grey and 50 shades darker
I would listen again if it was rerecorded with someone else reading it. I love the books but the way this one is being read is awful. She is not animated enough while reading and it keeps the book from really coming to life.
Too many moments that I liked to name a specific one exactly, but I think it would have to be when he finally realizes that she really does love him no matter what.
Um any one who could have brought it to life better.
