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.

    "Exception Love Story (1of3)"

    One of my absolute favorite love stories. Although it's a bit over the top, I still enjoyed every minute of it. Especially with the ever so talented Becca Battoe narrating it. Highly recommend this audio book!

    "Not what you expect-- a real love story"

    That shows how trust, patience and compromise can blossom into a loving, consensual relationship, absorbing the pain of an abusive childhood and a sequel predator. The author was brilliant in bringing all of the characters to believe ability.

    "Great Book; Different Narrator Please!"

    Overall I loved the book and story line. I had a hard time deciding if I should read it based on reviews, so I took the plunge.

    I can't say the narrator was the worst ever, but definitely not the best. I will possibly buy the Kindle version and "reread"the book. When I finished it I bought the Kindle versions of the other books in the trilogy and enjoyed reading them.

    "Hmm it was interesting"

    It was very interesting. Everyone has their sex life. Everyone does it different. I think it was pretty good. It made sex sound more entertainment:)

    "Full Cast Please"

    One person reading for all characters is not for this series. A women voice over for Christian, throws it off.
