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.

its a little more intense listening to it instead of just reading it
My emotions were all over the place with this book, loved it soo much
Erotic, Pornographic, Sexy
Christian Grey because he had accomplished so much at such a young age but was a tortured soul!
Becca Battoe made this audiobook unbearable to listen to. All those whiny vocal drops did nothing except make the character Ana sound like a spoiled valley girl! Please never use her again!
Ranked number one
Say You Love Me because of the sensual plot
Anastasia's first glimpse of the playroom. Christian's reaction was dumbfounded and comical
I laughed and cried both.
I will more than likely get the last two books in the trilogy.
Please see narrator comments below. If you're going to torture yourself with the painstaking verbiage of this book, buy the paper copy and have your significant other read it to you. At least you might actually "get" value out of that. The cheaper, quicker option would be to watch a little late-night HBO instead; the dialogue is comparable and that ~action~ you’re looking for will happen in a tenth of the time.
If all books of this genre are written, as this was, for a juvenile reading comprehension level, then I will direct my brainpower back toward more valuable, thought-provoking works like Tarō Gomi's "Everyone Poops."
The abysmal narration only highlighted the poor quality of the author’s writing. The narration is a complete botch-job. This woman seriously makes a living by reading aloud? If she’s paid equitably, she wears Old Navy and eats Ramen at home on a reclaimed sofa every night. The narrator's meter is painful, and the "voices" are hilariously excruciating. Jose Rodriguez must be the only Hispanic member of the Russian mob, because the narrator's "Central-American" delivery of his lines sounded more like a communist party public address circa 1950.
Any critic who passed this book with flying colors probably didn’t pass 7th grade English. I wish I'd kept a tally of the (so very many) over-used words and phrases the author used. There was a wider variety of verbs and adjectives in my middle-school classmates’ creative writing samples.
This might be a rare instance where the movie will be better than the book, but the movie should be released straight to DVD.
I just couldn't get past the irritating narrator. I usually switch between audio and book as I drive quite a bit. Not this time, I just waited for down time to read the story on my iPad. The Valley Girl tone made it impossible to get into the story lines - especially the "erotica". It was like listening to a Jr. High school girl.
Anyone - and if you really want to make this sexy, have a guy reading the male roles.
Not since they recast. I was so looking forward to Charlie Hunnam playing this role.
Listening to this book was a total waste of time. The narrator sounded like a little girl, and had zero ability to "sell" the story. I listened for about 30 minutes, then couldn't take it anymore. I bought the hard copy of the book and read it to myself.
Yes I would ! It is just perfect
Grey and Ana kissing long and hot in the elevator
There is so many but would have to say when he fucks her in the bathroom
Yes and would do it again
The book wasnt too bad to read, I didnt hate it. The audio version made me want to claw my eyes out tho. The way the actor said "Baby" was like nails on a chalk board.
Its just bad. No real feeling, and the way some of the things were said made me feel slimey.
Im already listening to "The Face" by Dean Koontz
I also bought the ebook. I enjoyed both equally.
Just how would they do that and I have no idea.
This book reads like a romance novel and I do not like romance novels so was not impressed. The sex was really too much of a good thing. I got bored with it.
I'd definitely listen to Fifty Shades of Grey again. Actually, I'm doing it right now. I love the witty exchanges between Christian and Anastasia.
To me, the email exchanges between the main characters are the most memorable moments. They're full of wit and funny.
Her enunciation is very clear and audible.
I listened to it over the weekend, my only break was sleep. So, yes.
