Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy

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.

    Story
    "Good, not great."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades of Grey to be better than the print version?

    Yes, if only because it's nice to hear the voices.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The relationship dynamic was both the most and least interesting thing.


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

    She added quite a bit. The emotion she added to the character was very immersive.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Mr. Grey will see you now...

    Story
    "Can't put it down!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend.


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

    This question is a little bit harder to answer since I am now becoming a book reader, but I can say this book has pretty much everything in it. I am not one that enjoys all the sappy love story books but this book gave an exciting love story combined with the mystery like I like.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Ther performance was very good, you can hear the emotion in their voice and that to me is important to keep the reader interested.


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

    I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book, but that could just be me, I am not that emotional when it comes to books, but this book did keep me on edge and listening I wanted to hear it all in one day.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait until this book series is turned into a movie, I would be one of the first to go see it.

    I enjoyed the narrator. Her voice made all the emotions come to life without sounding too theatrical. Looking forward to the next book!

    "Should've read book instead"

    Narrator's voice was annoying. Story was to intense for her voice. Should've had male and female narrator's.
