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.

El James yes Becca not so much... They should had Kirsten potter read this book it would have been amazing!!!!!
The sentencess were at spaced I feel like a child was reading this book and we tone hardly changes.
Def super hot story lined! I learned a lot!!
The narrator is annoying to listen to. Her choice for Ana is a bit too OMG Valley Girl and she cannot seem to do a good male voice for Christian. Not sure I am going to get book two in audible if it has the same narrator.
Hot, sexy subject matter
I gave this book an honest hour, and decided that life is too short for such a garbage.I'd rather clean closets.
No, I will not read her again.
The voice is not really pleasant
It takes a special talent to turn smut into a piece of literature. This is pure garbage for a back alley publication
Okay the only way I could get through this audio book is to have it on the faster speed. It's way better than the regular speed. On regular speed the narrotor is AWEFUL ENTERTAINING!! YOU COULDN'T PICK SOMEONE BETTER? However, on the FASTER speed of the Audiobook, it was Hilarious yet Sensible. I got a feel of the Passion, the Lust, the Love, THE DESIRE they both felt for each other. Oh My!! It was worth it with that speed. I love love LOVE the Trilogy books on high-speed ONLY!! I seriously needed a cool shower after. WOW!!
I was beyond disappointed with this audio book. Having the hard copies, and reading them multiple times, I did not hesitate to buy the audio book. Unfortunately, Becca narrated this book so poorly that I felt I was listening to a middle school student reading a classroom assignment to her teacher. Please buy either the kindle version of this book or a hard copy, but stay away from the audio version.
The entire story
Right now you couldn't go wrong with anyone else.
I am only 1:09:29 into the audiobook, and I am already mimicking the voices. She made Christian sound like a ladies man who can't get any ladies, a guido more or less (because she makes all of his lines sound like cheesy pick up lines) and she tried to make every day conversations between everyone else sound 'sexy'. It's truely aweful.
I heard this book was going to be made into a movie and was compared to the Twilight series. Beware, there is absolutely no comparison. This is practically pure pornography in print. Should have researched the book better before downloading, however, there should be a bold warning about what the book contains. Only made it to chapter 7.
Fascinating story! I have read the books so I knew the story would not disappoint.
BUT if any book should have a male AND a female narrator, it's this one. So much hinges on the listener connecting with Christian in this book and it's just isn't possible with Ms. Battoe's narration.
I feel badly for the author. Her story won't get the praise it should because of the poor choice of narrator.
oh gosh, no!
Becca completely fails at the male voices!
And it's impossible to tell when the female character (Ana) is thinking something or speaking out loud. As Ana's internal dialogue is so important to the story, it's an unforgiveable failing on Becca's part! How can anyone who hasn't read the book figure out what's going on?
Sorry Becca but this just isn't the book you should be narrating.
Read the books instead!
If I could have given the "performance" a negative number I would have. I didn't hear any performance in her delivery.
I'm so disappointed...it's beyond bad.
The trilogy should be re-done with new narrators. A series of books such as this , that have had great success in print, deserve to be equally well done in audio.
Random House should be ashamed.
One of the worst narrators ive heard. Instead of getting into the characters Im more distracted by her attempt to voice them.
I thought the narrator was way too young sounding, but I liked the book. Think it would have been a better read than listen. THEN when I started book 2 with a new narrator, I wanted the first narrator back. It is painful to listen to and am thinking I will get the book and read it.
