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 wasn't to sure if I wanted to listen to this book. once I give it a chance I could not stop listening.
Umm... not sure beyond just not writing it.
Not really. It's a story of a strong girl who allows herself to be controlled by a broken boy. I see that every day at a women's shelter... I don't want to read about it too.
The characters lacked full range and development. The way they each flipped flopped on subjects were frustrating and annoying.
I wouldn't cut anyone. I would make them better
If you are looking for something sexy and naughty with BDSM go else where. Unless you have lived/experienced only mild adventurous sex you will not be inclined to find this sexy, dark and forbidden. I listened to the entire series because I bought into the hype of it is so thrilling, a must read, OMG it is soooo HOT! I'm here to say the Emperor has no clothes. I believe there are many others that dislike this series but do not want go against the tide. I have no such inclination. It is an easy light listen if you remove all of the hype. It isn't something that I would listen to again which is a serious disappointment for me. I love to listen and read my books over and over. It is a HUGE disappointment that I wasted three credits on this series. Lesson learned, no more.
I have listen to this book 5 times.
I have listened for a 3 trilogy. The character was interesting and has that Pretty Woman feel.
I thought her voice was wonderful and kept the listerners interest.
I did listen to all 3 books while working, ride the Park N Ride. I was totally addicted.
there not much of a story to this book at all ...i just started to hate the characters so much i really didn't like it
The reader was terrible! She brought no emotion to the characters and the difference between her voices was minimal. This was such a popular book I thought that a decent reader would have been chosen, but I guess I was wrong. The story is weak and rather pathetic. But it is racy and could be an interesting listen if it had been performed better.
NO!! Absolutely not.
Sure- but I hate that she agreed to do this book, so maybe not.
The whole idea.
I hate that our society gives any attention to this horrible story line. The whole "red room of pain" is really disgusting. What does this story say about women and me. Gross
This was without a doubt the worst book I've read in years. It sounds like it was written by a high-school girl hopped on Red Bull and Harlequin romances. It was poorly written; the characters had all the depth of a rain puddle, the storyline was beyond unbelievable, and the sex at best unrealistic.
I cannot believe this has become as popular as it has - it is complete garbage
The breathy speaking style; the pathetic attempts at imitating male vaoices
I guess really immature women who think a man who has money and looks is above reproach and irresistable for those two items alone.
Something that is well written and a narrator who sounds older than a 13-year-old "Valley Girl."
The words she spoke were not her fault, but reading every "TO", "SUBJECT", "FROM" etc. from the emails was mind-numbingly boring. It would not have been a problem in the written book. I could not believe any thoughtful, sane person would think that would be worthwhile information, or that a listener would want to sit through it. At least the verbatim reading of the contract could be bypassed, but it was hard to skip the through the emails.
All of them
I could not figure out what all the talk was about and so decided I could at least listen to the book while exercising at the gym. I became so irritated with the limited vocabulary of the main character -- "Holy C***, Holy S*** and Holy F***" her constant exclamations. Also, she lost her appetite as a result of just about any discussion.
