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'll give everything a try
The humor, especially Ana's sub conscience and "inner goddess" haha, it was really amusing. Also liked how the author balanced the intense story line and the humor.
This was quite long and intense. It's the second time I read this type of book and it was way better than the first. The pace is great and the main characters were very well developed.
Definitely recommend it but there were some dark parts.
A brand new me
Super arousing and erotic, its so much to mentally grasp that at times its overwhelming, but you got to keep listening, you cant stop!
Yes!!!!!!!!! I am addicted to the Anna and Christian.
Listening at the love these two people start to feel for each other was amazing.
I listen to her with all 3 books and she is very good. I Think her voice fits Anna. Her voice is what I imagine Anna's to sound like.
Oh yes.. I laid in bed at Night with ear phones and listen while every One slept. I listen to way down in the morning. I couldn't get enough.
I am so glad that I didnt listen to some of the other reviews about this book. I loved it.
The book was amazing! I love the audible apps because it allows me to continue my book anytime. I listened while i was cleaning, cooking, working out and driving. I will read (listen to) every book this way from now on.
YES, but i got the recover my sences and think awhile.
this is the only romance I've listened to or read, nothing to compare to, maybe there is none
She made Anna real
TRUE LOVE IS RARE AND OUT THERE
I'm emotoinanly devastated! NOT KIDDING. Being a guy i got the books to learn more about the pschycy of the fairer sex. The story was captivevating. Know I think I understand why books of this flavor women love to read. No wonder an almost normal and sub average guy as myself is left be the wayside. WE GUY'S ARE EMOTIONAL MISFITS!!!!!!!!!
I haven't a snowballs chance.
well written, choice of words, could "feel" the authors words.
Annastasia was my favorite character. She was young, spunky, vocalized her feels and point of view.
Half way thru the book, between all the erotic discriptive acts, what moved me was "why" was Christian like this. It had to be something that happened in his past. Immediately ordered the next two audio books in this series. Now on last third of Fifty Shades of Freed and enjoying the transformation of each character.
Enjoyed hearing how each character evolves and lets go of their inhibitions which is holding them back on life. Thus, what an appropriate title for the last book . . . Fifty Shades FREED.
It is a love story that every girl wants and more! It is too cute and it throws in very many interesting twists in the book.
I haven't read any other books like this one. This was the first of this kind
If you think this book is boring keep reading it gets better and better.
Yes, it really allowed me to do other things around the house!
It really kept my attention!
When he spanked her!
Loved the first one can't wait to get the second book!!!!!
IT Ranked Number 1
This book made me laugh and cry. It was awesome.
It's a Must, you will love it!!
Loved the story and character developement. You fall in love with Anastasia and become confounded by Christian. You can not help wishing them to be together eventhough he wants to beat her. He truly is drawn to her by love which is a feeling that confuses him. He refuses to believe it. Why...? As Anastasia wants to know why, so do I. Every woman wants a man to take control and worship her and Christian does exactly. I would suggest friends to read the book before listening to it on audio books. The performance did not do justice to the story line. No difference in the characters. I was expecting more than just someone reading to me with a purr. I would have loved to have some inflection in the read. Christian almost sounds like a drugged out monotone sulker. Anastasia sounds like an older person who purrs. Not in keeping with the character as described.
The F*** the paperwork in the elevator also Christian taking her to the red room of pain with Thomas Tallis playing. Whew....
Inflection would be a large improvement.
Most moving moment was at the end after the final red room of pain and they lay together while she recovers from the beating. They have a tender moment of realization that they are from different worlds but care far to deeply for eachother to make it easy to move on.
