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.

    Story
    "We ate the dessert first..."

    So I finish the Fifty Shades trilogy... Oh the tragedy! Fortunately I can and will listen to all three books over and over. I just can't get enough Fifty. I think my inner goddess is a pervert ;).

    Narration: By now Becca Batoe's remastered recording (the-I-just-drank-half-a-bottle-of-wine-and-started-reading) is growing on me. She's ok but I still prefered the original recording were she sounded young but her male voices were much better.

    Fifty Shades Freed starts with Christian and Anastacia enjoying their honeymoon. It includes more kinky lovery, more vanilla wonders and more Christian going sicko possessive. By now this drags a bit because it is a repeat of situations: Christian jealous, Ana challenges them, they fight, the have steamy sex and so on and so forth. Christians skeletons keep coming out of the closet and threatening his dear Ana. There is some suspense that brings some spice to the book but it never lives up to the mesmerizing stories we got on the first two books. Oh, and Ana calls RED on fifty. I was waiting for that!

    I believe that listeners will be happy with the ending. Definitely the epilogue and the Shades of grey chapters are the absolute best in the whole book. It was exactly what I wanted to listen to in this story. This trilogy is in a class of its own. I've never read anything like it and will treasure it for years to come.

    Story
    "Thank goodness the torture is over"

    Yes I must have some masochist tendency's as I tortured myself through the whole series - audible even! Mainly to see if the author and narrator could possibly be so consistently bad through to the bitter end.


    My emotions? Frustrated there was no improvement in the writing skills of the author or narration skills of the reader. Disappointment that Ana never matures from her naive, malleable and subservient behaviors. There are times throughout the series that Ana thinks she's acting strongly and standing up defiantly for herself, against Christian, to protect her civil rights. What a bunch of horse pucky! It's sad how she so deludes herself. There are specific items/actions she considers deal breakers but will debase herself for the other 98% of time. She lets Christian roll over her like a freight train, coming and going. I lost track of the times she's trying to figure out how "not to make him so mad or so upset" - over and over. She constantly supplants her own needs for his wants and desires.

    The book is grand example of how abusive and controlling behaviors can be exhibited and some classic victim thinking to go along with it.

    Ana...she was funny and innocent and naughty.

    She's always great!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Chistian opened up to Ana about Elena.

    "Exciting conclussion to an outstand series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Freed to be better than the print version?

    Yes, It was great being able to listen to the story being read to me while I worked around the house.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the very exciting conclusion to the story and that all unanswered questions through out all three books were answered. I also LOVED that the epilog included the first chapter of the first book being retold from Christian's point of view.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All three of her readings of the Fifty Shades trilogy were very good through out.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Crop or Flogger?


    Any additional comments?

    This was one outstanding trilogy. I loved it start to finish. I hope E.L. James writes all three books from Christians point of view.

    "READ the book first, don't LISTEN to it!!!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not really, it wouldnt be the book it is if I changed things in it. I was that good with my creative imagination I would be an author myself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades Freed?

    The handcuff sex scene during their honeymoon and the fact that he was unhappy about the marks later on.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s voice?

    Irritating, dull, unexciting.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe


    Any additional comments?

    The reader of this series does the book injustice. If I hadn't read it first I never would have gotten past the first chapter of the narration. Why, oh why could the producers not have found a better narrator?

    Story
    "Fifty Shades Freed"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Freed?

    A beautiful ending to a beautiful series. I picked it up and could not put it down. And now it is over, I feel like I need to read it again to catch all that I might have missed.

    I decided that I wanted to also experience this series as the audiobook. At first I did not care for the narrator, she made Ana seem much younger than her 21 years, but after a while she grew on me. This series is even more enjoyable and intense in the audio format. I see myself reliving this series again and again in the future. For those who have gotten caught up in the hype and have not tried it, you are missing a truly beautiful journey of love between two loveable people.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Christian and Ana were my favorites, Christian a little more so than Ana. But they both had characteristics that I found loveable and enjoyable.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    I didn't particularly care for her at first, her voice made Ana sound younger than she was supposed to be, but it eventually grew on me.

    "YAWN!!!"

    I guess if you are hungry for S&M this is your book! There is absolutely NO STORY line, or should I say the one there is, you figure out in the first book in the first few chapters. I ignorantly bought all 3 of these Fifty Shades Books, hearing they were all the rage. I will say that my sex life is varied enough that I don't need to read all of this crap written by this woman! I am sorry I purchased the set but I did not wish to return because I did listen to all 3 books hoping that they would get better in some way shape or form! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
    All of the characters in this book are shallow and there is no development of anything in this book!

    "Not great"
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Freed?

    The plot was weak, and the dialogue was horrible. The characters didn't mature from the start if the series and the whole book was a waste of time and money.


    What was most disappointing about E. L. James’s story?

    The lack of character development and change. I really was hoping for something others than another story where the girl ends up with the control freak and adjusts her life to meet his needs.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice was too pitchy and hard to listen too for me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    Every scene where the female character backs down abd does not stand up for herself allowing herself to be treated ad a human doormat.


    Any additional comments?

    Very diss appointing ending, to a very disappointing series.
