Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy

Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

Random House Audio’s recording of Fifty Shades of Grey has been remastered in a new edition. If you've already purchased the audiobook, you can re-download the file from My Library to get the new audio.

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.

    "Great Read"

    I don't read romantic satire, I find it cheesy, but felt compelled to read this with the reviews and impending movie. I was pleasantly surprised at the vividness and it turned out to be a great read.

    "Made book even better."

    Having the book read to you makes it even better. I say you read then listen then see movie. It will bring it all to life.

    "performance is pitiful "

    sounds as though she reading it verbatim. with awkward pauses and bad inflection. Horrible acting when voice in the male characters. It's very distracting I'd rather read the actual book.

    "A great story full of lust and wonderfully kinky!"

    I loved it! I sincerely doubt that the movie will come anywhere near the emotion and kink of the book!

    "Great story/easy to follow"

    Great narrator! Very clear and easy to follow. But I wished there was different voices for each character.
