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.

Hot, Sexy, Addicting
The main characters Christian and Annastasia were my favorite. Loved the dynamic between the two of them and how they evolve througout the story. Their relationship is simply tumultuous.
Yes, voice was right on with the characters!
Open your mind to another world of relationships.
yes. the storyline was an interesting premise. however, the quality of the writing could have been better and did not enjoy the narrator 's performance .
i was frustrated with the ending .
i hated the "valley girl " affectation
perhaps a movie staring matt bomer and alexis bleidel.
These books reminded me of the first Harlequin Romance I read (having sneaked it out of my mother's discards), but truly amped up in eroticism. I'm certainly old enough to read the descriptions of sex, but the audience attracted to the whiny, valley girl voice of the narrator is probably not. I succumbed to the hype about the book, wanting to see (or hear) for myself. I had read an article about the huge waiting list at our local library. In the end, I hate to admit I enjoyed the books, they were predictable, but explicit, and I'm sure they will spoil a lot of young teens for the realities of real life men and their sexual prowess. The virgin girl, the fantastically handsome rich bad boy who only can love her, the humility in Anna, all pretty far reaching, but, after all, this is a fantasy, right? I even got used to the narrator. I think all I am left with is a feeling of guilt for wanting to read this series, a knowledge that I have supported really poor literature, and a yearning to be Anna.
yes, i think i prefer it.
I'm not sure.
To me she did a good job.
Crazy in love lol
Listen to the book and come to your own, because if i would have listen to everyone else i would not have read this book and its a really good love story.
I am only on the third chapter and don't know if I will be able to finish it. This is the worst narration I have ever heard. A waste of my audible credit, I want my money back!
She has two voices, "valley girl" and "stuffy old man" and alternates between the two.
So far, complete frustration over the fact that I cannot enjoy the story because the narration is so terrible.
DO NOT buy the audible version, take the time to read the book.
I never read the print version
In death series by J. D Robb, because of relationship betwee Rorke & Eve and Grey & Ana
There were many
I almost gave up during the first book, but plodded on and it was well worth it. I don't understand the dislike of the narrator, The narrator is really important for me and I think this one is good. Too many 'Holy Cows' and 'Oh my Goshes", they make the writing too childish.
Made it alllll the way to where the main female character (...couldn't get past the voice to catch the name) met what i assume will be the main male...at that point the voice became so annoying I could not continue on...
Did anyone interview the narrator?
It's a great story. I just wish they'd chosen another narrator. I actually began to get annoyed with her and the only way I got through the book was by setting the speed at 1.5 times normal. I plan to get my hands on a hard copy of the book so I can determine if the story is just that slow vs. her delivery.
The story is good, the narrator is really poor
She sounded like a 9th grade girl that has a hard time reading! She really did not do the character justice!
Needs a new narrator!
Like Best-It is pure guilty pleasure. Like least-Narration is dry
Reminds me of my Harlequin Days
Her narration style is dry. Not a lot of depth.
No, it would be an MA dirty movie!! LOL!!!
If you have a credit, why not see what the fuss is about but don't spend the extra money!!
