Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

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.

    "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.

    "MORE! I need more Fifty Shades!!!"
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Freed in three words, what would they be?

    This book was AWESOME, EROTIC, and well written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

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


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

    She's always great!


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

    When Chistian opened up to Ana about Elena.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope this author writes MORE!!!!

    "Enough already!"

    I will be honest, it took me almost 4 months to get through this last book in the 50 Shades trilogy, and even at that, I wasn't able to completley finish this one. I hate the voice of the narrator, but since I had listened to the other 2 books, I figured I needed to finally hear the end.
    Well, I'm sorry to say that the start of it had me lost, with a gap in time so big I thought I missed an entire book in between, and by this book, I could no longer bear to hear the same descriptions of sex and feelings anymore. I finally shut of the book when it got to the 50 shades of Christen because frankly ladies I didn't care! I don't care for the end, and to hear any more about this guy that in book 1 had me at the edge of my seat, I felt smothered by the cloyingly sweet picture perfect ending, and I wanted to gouge my ears out if I had to hear Beccas voice anymore.
    For me, 2 was enough, and like they say.. 3 is a crowd. This could have ended after the second book instead of rehashing, and dragging out to the point that it lost my interest.

    Where does Fifty Shades Freed rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This trilogy came at a great time in my life.

    I liked Becca Battoe's voice, although her Latin/Mexican accent was not good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I did not want to stop listening to this book and I did not want it to end.

    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.

    Story
    "Terrible writing, repetitive and juvenile."

    Was hoping for a fun summer read but this was not it!
    The three books were poorly written and though I kept hoping for some semblance of an adequate story line to emerge the plot was weak, the characters repetitive and shallow, the writing juvenile and the repetition hard to take. Even the gratuitous scenes (which is what I'm assuming made these books popular) were repetitive and I was fast forwarding through them by book three!

    "I NEED MORE"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book over and over again. I hope E L james makes a trilogy based on what Mr. Gray was thinking.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian. He had me so hot and bothered. I loved him.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    I think she did a great job with all the characters.


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

    When christian thought she was going leave him again and he became the Submissive.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so awesome. I hope E L James takes my advice and PLEASE make books based on what Christian was thinking.

    "Oh My Indeed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I found the readers interpration of the characters laughable at best. She really got on my nerves. I was already dealing with a book that was not exactly what you call great writing but i wanted to see what all the hype was about...Oh good lord...

    This book would have been better if every other page wasn't some weird "Kinky F-kery" I believe she called it. It was a lot too much!


    Has Fifty Shades Freed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    If it's written by James...then for sure!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was annoying


    Could you see Fifty Shades Freed being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not unless it was NC-17! And it starred porn stars!


    Any additional comments?

    I hate I spent money on this but, oh well. I wanted to catch up and see what all my girlfriends where gushing about. Now I think they all need to have their heads examined.

    "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.
