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.

    "Can't wait for Book 2 !!!!"
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Hot, Alluring, Intelligent


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian...he is so complicated and so easy to read all at the same time.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    I liked that she was able to give voices to the different characters, but they weren't so fake sounding that they were unbelievable


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend !!! Will listen again and again.
