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.

It read like a high school romance novel.
Give more substance, something to bond and identify with! I'm a male and really became bored with it quickly. I tried to see it from the other side but failed.
The narrator was fine! Great to listen and imagine it unfolding.
Jose comes to mind!
I'm sure this type of story is appealing to some, I just didn't get it!
This voice from this young lady was to young sounding for me.
My husband loved the series.
Not for me. I just could see what all the talk was about.
But my husband loved it.
I did a little survey and most of my friends in my age group ( ladies )
were not impressed. I am 45.
This is really a short story. Girl like boy. Boy has great car. Boy wants kinky action from Girl. Girl gives it a try and fines she needs more . The end. Fifty Shades of Grey would have been better if it had a real story.
I would not read any books by this author.
Not sure did not read print that's why I got audio version
Christian of course
Still Christian grey
The entire book
Can't wait to hear book 2
Was so boring I could not finish. Perhaps the Story would have been ok without the female constantly saying "Oh MY". I could not continue to read mostly because of that.
christain reminds me of the man i love that has trouble loving me
i loved the performance great pacing as well as inflections in her voice, when appropriate i written style was poor, but overalll i LOVE this book because of the love story
I admit that I got sucked into all the hype about this book and that's why I bought it. Save your money - this is TOTALLY MISSABLE. The narrator was awful. She sounded like a bad actress on a daytime soap opera - only worse. Too monotone, wrong inflections, totally flat. With respect to the book itself - I kept waiting for a storyline but it never materialized. Whatever shred of a story there is it was predictable and very, very immature. The book strings together one predictable scene after another with a bunch of totally over the top sex scenes (complete with S&M and other acts that border on creepy) that are way over the top and I believe included simply for the shock value. I truly believe that the only reason the book is so popular is because of all the sex which I admit the author writes about very well and creatively. But that's not enough. IF YOU NEVER READ IT YOU ARE NOT MISSING ANYTHING.
it was my first audiobook and I loved it, the voice and clarity of the narrator is excellent
It is different than any thing else I ever read, romantic, erotic and hard to put down
When she goes the fist time to his appartament on a helochopter in Seattle, shocking
A little too much sex description, too much information
No. I thought her writing was very juvenile and repeats constantly. I couldn't get into her characters because they weren't believable. Everyone said that I needed to read the 2nd and 3rd book to get more of the story, but that wouldn't improve the authors writing skills. I thought the narrator did the best she could with what she had in reading this book. I would not recommend this book and wouldn't try another one of her books.
Something with more intellect and storyline.
I would be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe's performances to see if it was, in fact, just the writing.
The banter back and fourth on the emails were funny at first, but then they just got annoying. I liked the beginning when they first met. The beginning started off strong.
Another Audible Addict
What a waste!I can't believe anyone would have anything good to say about this. One of the stupid sex scenes was plenty for me. The male voice was ridculous and not sexy done by the women reader, what a total turn off. I thought I was buying a mystery not a fluff novel. It was like a broken record with the same scene being played over again and again I kept fast forwarding hoping for a change in the next chapter but all I heard was that stupid girl saying "Holly F_ _ _!" over and over. I guess I am ranting now.... I will stay away from EL James in the future. I am not a prude but it was light years away from sexy - if that was the goal here?, there sure was no Mystery.
