Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy

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.

    "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.

    "Very raunchy but exciting!"

    At first I was surprised by the graphic sexual details but then compelled by the story and couldn't stop listening!

    "My first audiobook"

    The narrator made this audiobook super enjoyable. I fell into sync with the narrator after a couple chapters and it was great listening.
    I'm on to the second book of the trilogy.

    Story
    "so much better then expected"

    There was more then one part that I found myself giggling out lould in the truck while listening with my earphones while my husband and children were present. It was comical with the narrators voice change and tones at times. But over all the book was extremely well written. I did find the run threw of all the emails frustrating at times and wish I could just skipped over all the basic information used each time. I didn't plan on reading the book in fear that it was just a fad and not as good as what it was hyped up to be. My assumptions were completely miss guided and incorrect so I was personally pleasantly surprised. I look forward to starting the 2nd book this evening.

    Story
    "Not just a female book, men must read also."
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, exciting and intriguing.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades of Grey to and why?

    No comparison


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Great voice that allows you to feel the story as it is being read to you.


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

    Inside a woman's head and heart.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I'm a male who just read (heard) this book. I went to see the movie with my wife not knowing anything about the book. After the movie I had to read the book because I had a lot of unanswered questions. It explained things more in detail and once I finished book one, I couldn't wait to start reading book two. I'm hooked with the story line, can't get enough. I'm so intrigued that I want to know what happens next. Reading this book also gives me an insight on what a woman is thinking, or thinks during different scenarios. From feeling loved, sad or happy.
