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.

love to have the book too...
there everything is as good as the end….
just love this web site and thank you .
50 Shades of Grey was a very interesting book. It was hard to turn the audio off because I was anxious to see what was happening next. Great book.
Yes if they don't mind reading about bondage.
Actually I'll mention 2 because of the contrast. First spanking scene and last one.
The narrator did a awesome job given the material.
The final scene. I felt her pain as if it was my own. Guess because I've been there before.
This book was much harder to read (hear) than other books that I've read because of the material. S&M / bondage aren't my thing but I will admit that at some level it peaked my interest. Not that I'd ask my husband to do anything like this. On another note it was a little long winded though I enjoyed the email banter but I didn't like the way it left me hanging. Though as a marketing ploy I guess that's the point since it made me buy the next one right away.
Loving you is Easy, Misty Eyez
I loved that this story took the average "everyday reader" and took them on a journey to the darker side of sex. That being the world of Leather/S&M, and I feel that this book painted that world in a VERY ACCURATE light. The Reality is those that live and breath this lifestyle are all about respect - boundaries and most importantly trust. I however am a bit sad that the more Anastacia became comfortable Christian pulled away, but I am sure E.L. James did that for the Mainstream market.
"give them enough to taste it - and to desire it - without shoving it down their throats"
I would say a more adult twilight - in that its a Forbidden Love story but the audience easily relates and encourages it to happen. Or even more basic - Beauty and the Beast.
I feel she brought it to life. She was wonderful.
I think the first two books were the BEST - I do appreciate the drama and mystery part three brought with the attacks on the family, however the actual story between Christian and Anastacia got a bit sappy and predictable.
If you are only getting this book because you heard all the hype - DONT - But if your ready to read a love story about a troubled man (a beast) and an innocent girl (a Beauty) then go ahead and get it. All the while Enjoying the Forbidden Storyline as it takes you into a surprising world of pain and pleasure
I've been a long time reader of erotic romance and a long time listener of Audible and have bought lots of different types of audio and printed editions of assorted books.
I did have a hard time reading and listening to the story, being in the immediate present. Not something one is used to in romatic literature. But I did give this book a chance and kept at it. I have now read the full series - twice and listened to the full series three times. I love the books, yet I am willing to admit the writing is not as good as I have seen before. Forget about the writing, the present tense and just enjoy the story.
avida por la lectura ...
Love the relationship, how the author take them to the place they both need to get together.
no, this is the first time and I love her.
that would be like a porn movie so, I pass.
It was a wonderful read or to listen to! I listen to it in the car, work and home while cooking. Can not wait to see what they would do for the movie.
I think if her vocabulary would have been better? I didn't like how she said "oh my" all the time.
wasn't for me
I gave this one a try just to see what all the fuss was about. I had difficulty taking the book seriously because if it wasn't the terrible dialogue that made me want to bang my head against the desk, it was the horrible voices that made me bust out laughing. The male characters sounded silly, and the female characters sounded like dimwitted sorority girls.
I'm trying to think about that. As long as she doesn't have to mimic a man's voice, perhaps.
Eye exercise - i.e. I rolled my eyes, A LOT!
I sighed - but not from the "lusty" scenes. I sighed in exasperation from the silliness of this story.
Holy Crap - there's going to be a movie and additional book(s) in this series. My Inner Goddess --- laughs at this ridiculousness.
