Publisher's Summary

Relive the sensuality, the romance and the drama of Fifty Shades Freed through the thoughts, reflections and dreams of Christian Grey.

E. L. James revisits the world of Fifty Shades with a deeper and darker take on the love story that enthralled millions of fans around the world.

You are cordially invited to the wedding of the decade, when Christian Grey will make Anastasia Steele his wife. But is he really husband material? His dad is unsure, his brother wants to organise one helluva bachelor party and his fiancée won't vow to obey....

And marriage brings its own challenges. Their passion for each other burns hotter and deeper than ever, but Ana's defiant spirit continues to stir Christian's darkest fears and tests his need for control. As old rivalries and resentments endanger them both, one misjudgement threatens to tear them apart.

Can Christian overcome the nightmares of his childhood and the torments of his youth and save himself? And once he's discovered the truth of his origins, can he find forgiveness and accept Ana's unconditional love?

Can Christian finally be freed?

Great book, not the best narrator…

I love the 50 Shades series, and it was awesome for me to be able to listen to the audio version of Christian’s perspective… the only thing that was a bit annoying for me was the narrator. I picked up a few times where he would mispronounce words in the book. He also doesn’t do the best job of differentiating between different character voices. Overall still a good audio book and still worth a listen if you are a fan of the series.

All the feels

Loved this.

It’s definitely the books for me and reading them in Christian’s pov is so much better and definitely my preference.

Zachary did an amazing job with this. His voice suited Christian perfectly. His tone, and the easy way he tells the story is great. He made it easy to listen to and I hadn’t realised I had reached the end until I came across the epilogue. I was disappointed it ended.

Love Christian’s pov, we get a better insight into what he deals with when it comes to his past trauma, why he needs control and his feeling of inadequacy. I’m so glad E.L James did this series in Christian’s pov I’d sooner read these than Ana’s pov. I just feel like there’s more depth, more growth and development in these than the original. Absolutely loved it.

Don’t waste a credit!

I pre ordered this!

Good points:
Zachary is at his best. Well paced, various accents and voices and now I know how to pronounce some French words! Listened to a lot of his work and he’s so easy and ear pleasing.

That’s where the good ends

I’m a fan of the series. Read them all, listened to all, saw movies etc but this is a steaming pile of mud.

Bad points:
Too much sex. There I said it! I was fast forwarding from about hour 2. Repetitive, boring (I read reverse harem from J Bree, Tate James and et el... Ive read good written sex scenes).
Lost the story flow by them banging every second of every day sheesh. Honestly, 27hrs could’ve been a lot less if EL James had skipped a few boinks (and I requested a refund in hr 9). We already knows what happens.
Absolute disservice to fans of the series. Many of us have waited a long time for this and what’s been published is about the money, not the loyal fan base.

Do not waste your money. Not worth it.

Very Good

Enjoyed the Shades trilogy much much more from Christian’s POV than Ana’s. Have not read any of the books because who would with Zachary Webber’s sexy voice narrating the story. Thank you Zachary your talent, acting ability and amazing voice made Christian’s character come alive. Loved gravelly voice Welch and British Flyn so much x

Zachary Webber at his absolute best

While listening I often forgot that Mr Webber was narrating all the characters, especially Dr Flynn and some of the nurses. Full of extra detail as we hear Fifty Shades in Christian’s Point of View.

Freed

This is the third Fifty Shades of Grey, told through Christian's point of view, as expected this story had many ups and downs along with sexy scenes that keep you on the edge of you seat throughout. With Zachary Webber's gorgeous voice keeping the tension high. Just love it.

End of the saga

This book ends with the other side of the story which gives a good view of Christian and his dreadful early life. He’s a conflicted man but comes to realise he really needs Anna and no other. It takes him sometime to reconcile himself to that fact and it’s only when Anna is really in danger does he understand how much. I loved all the books and have read each one more than once but I must admit the telling of the story from Christian’s point of view are the best ones.

Lots of detail in the story - enjoyable listen

This story was brought to life by the narration. I preferred this version as it provided a female's view via a male voice on Christian's perspective. I appreciated the raunchy complicated romance with elements of reflection by Christian.

Well worth the wait

From E L James' depth of characters, intelligence and wit to Zachary Webber's emotional and captivating narration. It was well worth the wait. Even knowing the outcome, I was still along for the ride, all the way. Looking forward to what you both create next.

Greys Thoughts

It was so good to hear Greys perspective in his sessions with Flynn and especially Ana’s baby bombshell when he ran into “Ms Robinson”. I know many of us wondered not only how that came about but what happened. And the epilogue was just beautiful.

Thank you for finishing off such a masterpiece series. It was a perfect ending.

Loved the story from Christian's perspective

Loved hearing story from Christian's perspective. Most days I just wanted to keep listening.

The only part I found irritating, was too much detail given for each email between Christian and Anna. Every email narration includes names, date and time. I would just tune out momentarily for those sections.

Pffffft…

I got this because I love Zachary Webber’s / Jacob Morgan’s narration and the other two books from Christian’s point of view were really funny (I am pretty sure that was the author’s intent so am not being snidey when I say that). This was not funny at all. Anastasia continues to be an annoying idiot and Christian is once again the obsessed weirdo, but not even funny with it.
