Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of his success—multinational businesses, vast wealth, a loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

I wouldn't read another book... bad writing(so infantile) and the voice was so annoying I couldn't get through the first book(made mistake of downloading all before listening to first)..I wish I would have read other reviews first...... the "oh, MYs) and "holy cows" were just too much....also the "inner goddess" remarks...
written like an adult and had more adult vocabulary
anyone......the "Christian voice" was worse........
There must be a lot of frustrated women out there who have never read erotica to find this enjoyable....
i thought i would lose my mind hearing every single word including the time, date, to & from of the boring emails. And if i never hear "oh my" again, it will be too soon.
annoyance that i wasted a credit buying it.
The story moves rather slow but what ruins this one is the narrater who sounds like a 13 year old who was allowed to read to her class at school. Couldn't even finish the first book as listening to the narrator was just too annoying.
Just came off too immature and the tone of her voice was not professional sounding. Her sentencs would trail off and then her voice would get gravely. It really got on my nerves. First time a reader has affected me this way and I have listened to well over 50 narrators. Was disappointed I could not get through the whole book.
The reader was annoying, the superlative descriptions were overdone, the plot lame--I pictured the writer thumbing through a Thesaurus to use every descriptive word imaginable, even a few French words, and then saying "Jeez". Please...............
Combining all three books into one. (I cannot bear to read the last book.....too bored with it all. I really don't care what happens in the end.)
Too much drama in reader's delivery.
I seriously doubt editing would help.
Waste of time.............the sex was good but even that became mundane.
No, but I would continue the entire series.
The loss of Anna's virginity.
Christians heartbreak at the end of the first book.
When Anna summoned the courage to leave.
I love Christians growing adoration for Anna and his new found ability to express it.
Yes, the story was greatly depicted.
Anna and Christian of course.
Yes, Battoe did a great job.
The last part of the book, when Anna realized she can't be everything Christian needed and wanted as a Sub.
Yes of course I would.
The novel theme and Anastasia character.
Not have a Valley girl reader.
Yes, it is a very interesting subject.
It is too bad that this poorly written novel is so popular.
Say something about yourself!
I will admit I only purchased this because of all the hype. I've never read this type of book and didn't think I would actually enjoy it... surprise, surprise... I thought it was really good. I found myself caught up in the story and the characters and want to know more about them and their past. The book does have some explicit sex scenes which I admit I fell asleep during some of them (lol, guess I'm just old). All the sex in the world would not have made this a good book if it didn't have characters that you actually start caring about.
Regarding reviews it seems like this is a no or go book... I've seen a lot of 1 star reviews on Amazon, GoodReads, etc. and I've also seen just as many 5 star reviews. I guess you either love it or hate.
I have already purchased the 2nd book and look forward to reading it.
fun erotica in romance genre
realistic modern adolescent
already too many books
Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee sang the title (of this review) in 1946
I would have enjoyed it more if it was narrated by someone else, but it was mostly the story I found lacking.
Maybe nothing, I think most of my dissapointment came from all the attention this series is receiving. I never would have listened to this book if it wasn't the #1 best seller. I found it boring, simple, and cheesy.
if you can get past the cheesy parts, the love scenes were pretty erotic
