I'm an LMT originally from the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. I lived in NYC off and on for 15 years. I decided I had enough of long cold winters so summer of 2012 I relocated and now live in sunny Sarasota FL and loving every moment of it. My favorite thing to do is lay on the beach all day long listening to the waves and a great audible book.
It was a great tease until the end. There was nothing sexy about the reality of what he really wanted in the end. Flat out abusive ending made the preceding story a waste.
The ending, the assult
No I have not and will not
Anger, disappointment and pity for the girl.
I refuse to read another book because I do not wish to see her go back to him or any other such stories. The only resolve to this story is prison for him!!!!...
Homemaker, married to Dave Bargar, mother of 8, Christian, Seventh-day Adventist, love to read!
Trash. Poor grammar. Poor plot. Trash. Did I say trash? I am no prude, but this was a sad piece of literary work. Unfortunately the hype intrigues many. One word if you are intrigued.....Library. I want a refund.
This book is for suppressed, sexually frustrated, and simple minded women. Top 10 readers.
No. She is an awful narrator. Obnoxious.
Not really. It seemed like it was written from a shovunistic guys point of view of what he thinks women who want them act like.
Dont believe all the fuss. This book is not good.
Creating characters that one cared about. Although, one must take into account that I didn't finish this "novel". Also, drop the email crap. I almost went mad listening to the headers on the emails (and there are plenty). How did doing that add to the growth of the story? Very annoying.
Tweaking the characters: creating a female who was less gullible, less obtuse and more protective of her self-esteem. A male character who wasn't the stereotypical: rich, powerful and ultimately, irresistible miscreant. He wasn't bad enough to be evil nor human enough to care for. Getting rid of that "email" thing.
It just wasn't pretty.
I don't understand the appeal of this book. One friend described this book as "hot" and extremely addicting. Interesting how different our opinions are. I found it far from "hot" and actually couldn't get past the first half. I found myself flinching, not because of the sexual forays involved but, because I was so irritated with the characters. Has she not heard of self esteem and he, therapy? They should have listed this book as "juvenile porn". Sorely disappointed I wasted money on this book.
It was a bit awkward at first listening to erotica by someone elses voice but i did enjoy it overall
Yes i would like to continue the series
The best friend Kate
Both, i felt very attached to the characters by the end.
I did enjoy this book. However, i felt it lacked a bit of originality since the author had previously read twilight and there were so many simularities. Furthermore, i will look forward to finishing the rest of the series since she seemed to add what twilight was lacking; sex and reality!
EL James story is good the narrator not so much.
Don't like her voice and she wasn't believable
it gave me a spark :)
yes..it keeps your attention
it has steamy details but better than that it was about love
yes but i couldnt but it was addictive
listening to book 2 fifty shades darker now
I love the story - I could not stop listening. Grey is Captivating as a character - and I relate so much to Anastasia
UGH - it was SO hard to listen to her voice - While she was eloquent - the tones were all the same - and her voices - horrible. I am sorry Becca - But this was not a great performance. You captured a great Anastasia - but everyone else sounded the same - and I often got confused as to who was talking. Not to mention - no intonation. You could have really gone CRAZY with this story - and it was very mundane.
Im a nurse in San Juan, Puerto Rico i have been a member since 2012 love to read a lot, cook and hear my audible books in my free time!
Sure it will stay with me forever!! It was my first book of this type and love it!!!
Both Anastasia and Christian ! Love the evolution of the characters from first to end'
When Christian first said to her he loves her and let her touch him because that was very difficult for him and the evolution of his caracter make it real.
Yes when he gave her the bracelet with all the significant charms of all rhe moments that they share.
I was very mind close about all this of submissive and dominant but E l James made me see it a different point of view and understand it better .seeing forward for others book of this author !!!! This was my introduction if this world that nobody wants to talk but crave secrectly. Congrats!!!!
