Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content

Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you and stay with you forever.

When Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them had anticipated. Ana must learn to share Grey's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity or independence; and Grey must overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors that still haunt him.

Now, finally together, they have love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of infinite possibilities. But just when it seems that they really do have it all, tragedy and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true....

What did you love best about Fifty Shades Freed?

the story line and the way it was built from book one to the end of book three

I love 50 being in love

I came to realise by the end of the third book, that this trilogy is all about the love story. The kinky sex is interesting but in the end its all about a desperate, all consuming love that many many people never experience. The kind of love where despite the hardships, a couple really do adore each other and ..........yes....... it does happen. Its also about the female need to save a handsome and esentially good but very damaged man from himself, and see that love does win over in the end. Yes the books are repetivive but to be honest who cares. It was all about heart and I loved them:) Becca Battoe has done a nice job of the reading.

Finally more story and less sex

Would you listen to Fifty Shades Freed again? Why?

It is probably one of those stories you only need to listen to once, although my partner is now listening to it in the car and I admit I am getting a lot more out of it second time round.

What did you like best about this story?

Finally Ms James has seemingly got bored with all the sex and started to concentrate on the story and the journey. In this book we now are allowed to let our imaginations work a little as to what happens 'in between' sundown and sun up.
I suspect perhaps her editor may have had a hand in it.

What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator turn what would otherwise read as a fairly trashy sleazy story into a genuine love story that you do become interested in. She really does an incredible job of letting the listener believe it is Ana and Christian talking to one another.

If you could rename Fifty Shades Freed, what would you call it?

No that is the appropriate title.

Loved

The end to this wonderful trilogy. It was just as explosive as the rest of the books. We still have Christian struggling with his past and his issues with trust and jealousy. We still have Anna being independent and stubborn. Will love prevail? Loved loved loved.

Toe curling good

Certainly saved reading it on the train in a paper bag as so many seem to try and do. I really do not know what made this series so good that I had to read all 3 books in 2 weeks. Sory line was good, narrator okish, sex scenes did get a bit repetitive, but he is soooooo hot, you never knew what he would do, say, try or buy next

Compelling

Contrary to popular belief, I actually think that Becca Battoe's voice is correct for this trilogy. At first it seems too "innocent", however, that is the point. It feels right throughout the whole thing. I agree with another review that the sex was not that adventurous. In fact, I found that the sex was predictable and frankly boring in most parts of the trilogy. If I could have fast forwarded it, I would (I am no prude) as I felt it got in the way of the story.
E L James would not win the "Best Sex Writing" award. Too many repetitions, but then I wouldn't want to have to try to write about so many different sex scenarios.
It is a love story and it was addictive. It has taken me less than 3 weeks to read all three. Although it is no literary masterpiece, I would recommend it highly as an easy read. Hope you enjoy it.

Garbage

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

None of these books were for me. I only managed to get through and listen to part of book 2, never even listened to book 3. So far fetched and stupid and a waste of my time.

Any additional comments?

I just did not enjoy this at all and should not have listened to all the hype which made me decide to download

Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades

I found this book to absolutely riveting I could not put this book done until I finished it and then I listened to it again, in fact I have listened to the complete trilogy twice. This is the only time I have listened to a book more than once. The trilogy as a whole was excellent and I have been recommending to all my friends. The only disappointment is that this was the last book and there are no more in the series.

I like this narrator...

What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades Freed the most enjoyable?

Being able to listen to it when I'm driving, cooking, doing the dishes...!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Christian.Because... he's Christian!

What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

I liked Becca's performance. I thought she got all the characters spot on and, although at first, I thought Christian sounded a bit strange, it soon became apparent that that just wasn't the case. The narration flowed and it didn't once affect the telling of the story in a negative way.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

That would be telling! ;-)

My favourite of the series

This is the third and final book in the fifty shades trilogy, and I think I can unreservedly call it my favourite. I loved seeing Christian and Ana having to adapt to married life, and also loved the suspense and drama surrounding the thriller aspect of the book. While it will never be considered a particularly well-written book I think it must be said that it is an entertaining listen and a great addition to any holiday on the beach!

Closure?

Anna and Christian get married, but are still being slaves to their own battered emotions when it comes to being intimate. Will they ever sort out their emotions or is it just too complicated for a happily ever after?

Bland

By the third book I was really tired with the characters especially Christian.
His obsession with Ana became overbearing and even a turnoff. The only time he was happy with her was when he was screwing her, otherwise he was sulky, whiny and possessive... Not hot at all.
Ana just became lame, being so weak willed against him. Totally out of touch.
The phrases and lines became cringeworthy + more repetitive throughout the trilogy to the point I was rolling my eyes with annoyance. Lacked originality, and felt like I was looking into a teenagers wet dream. Juvenile.

Clever what an open ending

I love how the author has addressed power, wealth and control in one bundle. I enjoyed prelude that compares the early fifty to the one we have grown to know. Totally recommended and await their next journey as exhausting as it would be to love him!

New Narrator Needed.

The narrator of this series is not really suited to the genre. Perhaps she would be better with lighter chick lit but her narration of the Fifty Shades series is cringeworthy.
She mispronounces words, takes pauses is awkward places and her ‘voices’ for the characters are quite irritating.
For Anastasia she puts on a voice I would imagine you would assign to a 16 year old girl. I know Ana is, in the beginning, inexperienced and timid but her tone is too young. As the books progress so does Ana’s character and she becomes a more confident and bolder woman which doesn’t come through in the narrative.

Christian’s ‘voice’ is so far off the mark. I know that it is difficult for a female voice to portray the tone of a male but this is such a mess. There are female narrators out there who can quite successfully do a male voice. For example, Andi Arnt. In this instance though, Christian sounds like a permanently grumpy old man who when experiencing moments of raw emotion is borderline pathetic. She makes him sound like a whinging man child. She can’t find a middle ground between enraged crazy tyrant and sulking whimpering man.

Due to the great success of the books and also the movies I don’t know why these books haven’t been re-recorded with a narrator who is more well known and great at what they do.
For these books especially, the duet style of narration would be incredible and add so much more depth and entertainment to the listeners experience. Primarily read by a female, but a male to speak male lines.
Zachary Webber does an incredible job on “Grey” and “Darker”. He does a better female voice than Becca Battoe.

If Audible re-recorded these books with a different female narrator and Zachary Webber reading the male lines, it would bring the books up to the level of quality you would expect from a huge worldwide success.

Narrator struggled to play the voice of Christian.

I would recommend that to get the ultimate impact of a male protagonist and actual man should read the part. In the end i kept falling asleep because the narrator's voice as Chritan got on my nerves...Come on people this is erotic romance NOT FARCE

it's an OK story

Entertaining but sometimes it is just too much of the same drama and vanilla sex.
