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.

A totally different story line!
If only she had gone to school to learn to write.
Becca's juvenile voice went right along with the juvenile words written for the juvenile character of Ana.
Too numerous to mention
I read all the reviews (good and bad) and listened to friends who have read this series (and loved it), so I just had to find out for myself. I truly wanted to like this series, but I could not even finish the first book. I have never not wanted to finish a book because it was so poorly written as this one!
Unfortunately the author will read all these bad reviews and laugh all the way to the bank!!
This was SUCH terrible writing. The author repeatedly used the same lines throughout the book - "my inner goddess was this ... my inner goddess was that" -zero variation in her descriptions of the same things. The whole book could have been over and done with in 2-3 chapters. It felt like the author had a semblance of a plot and then copy pasted the pages over and over again until it looked about the size of a book. ugh .. excrutiating to finish and even then, there was barely an ending. This books claim to fame was a controversial plot - but even that was underwhelming. The only part that was a tad shocking and interesting was the contract, but everything else was random and poorly penned. terrible author - very disappointed given the hype.
She was so breathy - every single sentence was breathy. Would have done well to add in some intonation - but I dont blame her as much as I do the writing. She wasn't as bad as some of the other reviewers claim.
um... eliot, katie, the limo driver, all these characters were kind of introduced but not explained enough to hold the readers/ listeners attention. If they had elaborated on mrs robinson, at least it would have been an interesting side plot.
Dont buy. save yourselves
This is nothing more than a really bad Harlequin Romance. I am about a third of the way through and doubt I will finish it as I consider it a waste of time. Wish I had actually read some of these reviews before listening to one friend's assessment that it was a good story. Not only is it a boring story so far but it is poorly written and narrated. Just one more example of the media's contribution to the "dumbing down of America." Sorry I wasted a credit.
She has no ability to distinguish one character from another with her voice. Only positive thing is her vioce does fit the character of Anna.
If you like cheap Harlequin romance novels then you will probably like this book.
I absolutely loved the story. There were moments where I could see myself in Ana's situation, and other times when I could not. Loved the book, but the narration was rather monotonous. With a different narrator, this book would have gotten 5/5 in my eyes.
world traveler, on the move, creating, really enjoying hand free books!
I don't feel like it was worth my time.
from the inner dialog, to the scenes, to the bad psychological analysis of BDSM.
Just cause your into BDSM doesn't mean something is wrong with you or that something happened to you.
the main protagonist really bothers me.
After two chapters, I deleted this book from device. I am somewhat easily entertained but this is a pale story with a weak and annoying main character. There was nothing compelling nor entertaining.
I expected a more adult book with some substance and depth. Although the story was intriguing, it was written in an embarrassingly teen-dreamy style. My husband and I were listening to it together on a driving trip an gave up and quit about 1 1/2 hours into it. Not a great introduction to audible listening.
It was too smutty
Who iis Becca Battoe
I am not a prude but this book was a little too racy for the general public.
I agree with the recent reviews. I bought this book because of all the hype and it was very "painful" listening to it. I almost didn't finish it. VERY boring and predictable.
If I had never bothered to listen to it.
Never have written it.
The repeat of every little thing in the emails - date, title, signature, . . . ad nauseam
Is there a way to return this download? Can I have my credit back?
