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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Plot 2, Erotica 5"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    The erotica is well crafted.


    Would you be willing to try another book from E. L. James? Why or why not?

    Yes. Curious to find out if the storyline strengthens. And, if Chrisitan's character develops.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s performance?

    Breathy. Virginal. Consistent


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Content may be shocking to some, but worth the journey as an exercise. It is causing me to now listen to Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy, which was overlooked in my library.

    You can learn as much from a terrible book as a brilliantly written one.

    Story
    "Very very Interesting :)"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    The humor, especially Ana's sub conscience and "inner goddess" haha, it was really amusing. Also liked how the author balanced the intense story line and the humor.


    Any additional comments?

    This was quite long and intense. It's the second time I read this type of book and it was way better than the first. The pace is great and the main characters were very well developed.

    Definitely recommend it but there were some dark parts.

    "This book is beyond Erotic!!"
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Super arousing and erotic, its so much to mentally grasp that at times its overwhelming, but you got to keep listening, you cant stop!

    "Completely Worth It!"

    The book was amazing! I love the audible apps because it allows me to continue my book anytime. I listened while i was cleaning, cooking, working out and driving. I will read (listen to) every book this way from now on.
