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.

    "Good Book, but...."

    I am surprised by the reader. I had to struggle to continue listening to it. The reader's attempts to sound like various characters almost ruined it for me.

    Story
    "Underwhelmed & Oversexed"

    This story was lacking any substance. At times I thought "I can't take anymore of this", because it was way oversexed & the main character was becoming increasingly immature. BUT, I did listen to the whole thing, enjoyed bits & pieces, and thought the narrator did an amazing job.

    ""Palm twitchingly ... not Mad!!!""
    Where does Fifty Shades of Grey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fifty Shades of Grey is only my 5th audio book that i have listened to...suprisingly enough, it did not disappoint! Of course, in the beginning...I did find it awkward the female voice narrator...narrorating ALL the charatcters...but after getting used to it, it didn't bother me one bit! Overall, the 1st of the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy Audiobook was AMAIZING...the experience was VERY satisfying...and hit EVERY inch of my 'inner goddess'...I give it 5/5!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Out of all the Audiobooks/books I have read...the reason I LOVE this one is because of its descriptive 'rawness'...Unlike my fellow 50 SoG fans...i had watched the movie first...now, i loved the movie...but the Audiobook was in a whole other level in itself!!! What scene lasted 4-5 minutes long in the movie...lasted 45+ minutes by Audio...the times i wanted 'more' (hehe) i got it w/ Audio...it really did paint a picture for you not only visually...but emotionally and physically as well!!! The story reallly was that...a story, of love, lust, passion, and need...oh, so much NEED...!


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hats off to the ever so talented Becca Battoe! She definitely encaptured the inexperienced little girl transformed strong willed woman, Miss Anastasia Steele...The tones, pauses, and overall performance was spot on to the character. Becca Battoe was Miss Anastasia Steele.


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

    From (almost) start to finish, I could have listened all the way...once i got the hang of it...I was able to sink in to the story...instead of just reading it;0) I was infatuated with the story and was frequently pulled into the depths of what is and forever will be the passion/lust/and maybe a little love that Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele have for one another. I find myself occasionally WANTING and NEEDING more...oh, so much more!


    Any additional comments?

    Whether it be books, movies, or even Audiobooks...when finding a story that you're able to let yourself go and allow all the rawness of the characters and/or settings into yourself or even your soul...I have to say, you found a damn good book! Thanks for reading my review and I hope you found what you were looking for;0)
