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'm Trying to see the world with my ears.
I am rendered speechless, my mind reeling. I have read this story before, and yet I am still overwhelmed by the depth of emotion and staggering thoughts I have about this book. Having just read the last line, I sit here trying to wrap my mind around what I want to say, and my only coherent thought is....Wow!
everything. scenes lifted almost wholecloth from Pretty Woman and various other movies... so lame I couldn't even listen to the whole thing.
pretty much anything... take a writing class, stop "borrowing" from other sources so heavily and obviously... hello what movie that I have seen a million times has the rich guy order the entire breakfast menu at a fancy hotel for the poor girl that stays over in his hotel room??? have an original thought.
NO WAY!!!! she doesn't emote well - not a good voice actress. While I realize she was to protray a college student as the main character the voices weren't well done.
well in my version I cut everything after hour 2 - couldn't stand to listen to more drivel. but really should have stopped after the first sentence...
I am stunned at all the people who have gone crazy for this book. It does not deserve any praise. People must be hard up for the smut I couldn't stick it out to get to. Smut just isn't enough of a draw for me to stand the crap writing.
The story of two people figuring out what they need for happiness, and what they are willing to give up for it.
Hmm, Steele or Grey? I love them both. Being het - I'd like to run away with Grey, but I identify with Steele.
The first few chapters are grating. But if you can hang on - it get's better. I'm at the end of book 2 and only a few of the male voices make me wince. Shucks I even noticed the slip up of Christian speaking like Ethan.
O.M.G. This was a struggle to put down. Do yourself a favor - start it when you have some time when folks won't be interrupting you...My husband has received some chilling glares.
Although the sex at first was a bit much for me - as this was a co-workers book club read - I think if folks can get through that they will see a very interesting story about two worlds intertwining.
Still a bit nervous about the book club meeting with a co-worker and 10 strangers...but it'll certainly be a growth point.
Just because of E.L.e James
Yes. Left you hanging. Sick guy. Need to find out how stupid this gal really is.
Well, it's really quite a fluffy book, boy meets girl, girl falls for boy and the rest is quite predictable
No this was my first time.
Well this is a trilogy, will not be purchasing the next 2, what else other than more sex/bondage can I listen to.
First let me say that I love erotic novels and this one did not disappoint. The writing is wonderful and Becca Battoe brought it all to life for me. I have already recommended the audio version to all my friends!
The characters were well written and Christian is sooooooo sexy!
No, but I thought she was wonderful!
YES!....and then read the other 2 right after that!
This is a trilogy so you have to be prepared to read/listen to all three books, but I just loved this series!
"The nature of this flower is to bloom." - A.W.
Juvenile. Boring. Unbelievable. Poorly written.
No, thank you.
With a different performer. The quality of the reader's performance was on par with the quality of the author's writing, ghastly.
It has a nice cover design?
A better narrator.....
She wasn't the right fit for the narrator... an over educated "valley girl".
I'm not sure. That would depend on if the writing improved.
I didn't care for the performance all that much. There's always hope for improvement though.
Was a little disappointed especially since there was so much hype about what a great book it is.
No one with any expectations for a well crafted story. Which should be the demand of any reader. The story line was weak, poorly developed characters and trite writing. If I could have given it 0 stars I would.
I don't know. I will rellisten to A Discovery of Witches. Way better narrator and a story with characters less shallow.
Absolutely not. She is not a great reader of text. I felt her interpretation of the read was weak and amateur.
Have higher standards for those who read for you.
