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.

    I blushed and gushed and all the rest that comes with it. I was completely thrilled to find out there were 2 more books. I loved loved loved this!!


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades of Grey to and why?

    It doesn't compare!

    Almost all. It was very hard to put down. I was eager to read more and hear Christians voice in my head.

    "Meeting the Master"
    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades of Grey the most enjoyable?

    I love the way Becca handled the narration. The story line moved at a great pace. Caught you in the first chapter and continued to move you toward a dom/sub relationship. Had to immediately read the other 2 books in the trilogy to follow the growing of both Christian and Anastasha.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the erotica wasn't forced down your throat so to speak. It was handled in a respectful manner and allowed the reader to follow along and decide what their hard limit would be.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Becca became Anastasha. She read with feeling and emotion and brought the story to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Anastasha left Christian. It was very hard to "see" because the reader knew that they were really in love.

    "More enjoyable than people might think."
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    I liked the main characters; they were fantasy characters, which was great. It's fun to jump into an ideal world.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the main character the best but that's probably because she's the one you spend the most time with.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    Anastasia.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I enjoyed this book, and the series more than I thought I would.


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of people are down on this book for it not being super porn, and I don't know why. It's not listed as "The Porniest Book Ever!" - I feel like people want to attack this book and series because they're looking for something to be mad at. It's an entertaining book and series. I finished the first and wanted to find out what happened in the second and third books. They were all entertaining, and that's what I was looking for.

    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Sensual, erotic, and suspense.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian Grey. I loved his demeanor throughout the whole book. I love how much and how hard he loved.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Her expressions. She made the characters come to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they first meet in his office for the first time. The attraction between was knee jerking and mind twisting.

    Review:

    "Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L. James was on amazing read all rolled up into one. You are kept on the edge of your seat with these two characters...Anastasia Steel and Christian Grey. Even though this 'Dominate' was not my type of loving but this author kept it interesting enough that I would not stop reading until the end and you know what? I liked 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' I will definitely be reading the next two novels of this series by this author.

    Story
    "A romance of mismatched love and kinky sex"

    Having had some extended contact over the past 40 years or so with what is now called the BDSM community, I have to say this book reads true to reality for the behaviors and issues associated with folks into kinky sex. It all started for me when a one-night-stand "professional conference romance" led to the hotel room of a professional colleague where the woman asked me to tie her hands to the head frame of the bed. She explained that she couldn't orgasm with her hands free. I was hesitant, but complied. We both enjoyed the evening. The book is dead on about the desires and repulsions of newly met potential partners, from the first page to the last.
