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.

    Story
    "Uhm...so confused!"

    Storyline: Great!
    Performance: So I loved the readers voice but it sucks that her voice was designated for each character. Cmon guys! The book & now the movie is making tons of money, don't you think you could've invested more money for at least a MALE voice? It's stupid that Becca had to play every freggin part. But after a while I got used to it and I kinda had to pretend that it was a friend telling me a story about what happened w/her and her BF. That was the biggest issues for me.
    Overall: I loved the way it ended- very smart for the author. Even tho parts of it make me want to stop listening but I got past it and the end made up for it.

    Story
    "Big fuzz"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and no. Some might like it.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Mild irritation might describe the feeling. Dissatisfaction.
    I is a "French ending" with several issues that never really gets settled. What happens Next is anyones guess.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, not really.


    Any additional comments?

    I think, readers' ratings of this book would be highly influenced by to which degree the scenarios come close to the readers own sexual fantasies.
    The text works fine in creating pictures for the inner eye. Rating will depend on how pleased you are with these pictures. I think, I liked the underlying story better than I liked the actual "Pictures".

    Story
    "Real love"

    This book speaks to me on a personal level of how my love life has been over the past 10 years. Not the BDSM. Or the Dominant/Submissive portions. But the overall power struggle to individuals have when faced with either enjoying "Just Sex" or "Falling In Love". As a broken man, Christian had real issues with actually saying he loved Anastasia. But everything he did for her displayed nothing except for pure undying love for her. I, too, have dealt with this type of broken man and I am still trying to heal him. Mr. Grey maybe everything that everyone wants but he doesn't love himself enough to allow Anastasia to love him more.

    "Great Performance."

    Becca Battoe really brought the characters to life. She has a very sexy voice. I can't imagine enjoying the book as much by reading it myself.
