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.

    Series: Fifty Shades #1
    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.

    "OMG"

    This book is really great if you are looking for a distraction. I think I ended up loving the female role even more than the handsome man who sweeps her off her feet.

    "Well written and keeps your interest"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades of Grey again? Why?

    The first book in this series is very well written, all along you are rooting for Ana to gain her own identity and not get lost in Christians. You worry for her, feel for her and want her happiness as it is easy to relate to. I would listen and read again for sure and couldn't wait to get to the other books in the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades of Grey?

    The end


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last scene when she is so strong.


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

    I don't know.
