Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.

Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.

Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.

Surprised at my interest...

I saw movie #1but read subsequent books. I have worked with dysfunctional behavioral children and even had a possessive and jealous boyfriend in my past who hurt me some to keep me submissive. (Nothing like in this book.) As a senior with grown kids, I actually learned a lot about my own sexuality or lack of it and it makes me introspective. My favorite city is Seattle. I am so pleased to see how Christian and Anna's love and desires could continue after they had children. I love how her love and commitment helped heal him. I thought that Anna's virginal innocence was alluring and part of the attraction for Christian. It was a fun and different read. Will there be a sequel? 😊

Redundancy...

I liked this series very much, however the redundant use of some words and phrases took away from what otherwise was a good story.

Happy Ending

Would you listen to Fifty Shades Freed again? Why?

Already listened several times

What did you like best about this story?

Interesting to see how much Ana & Christian loved one another; and the lengths they went to that tested that love and bond between them.

What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

DULL

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

When Ana was at the bank and spoke to Christian on the phone about the money.

Any additional comments?

I liked the series - not a Great Literary Masterpiece;but did not expect it to be - but enjoyed it .

Finally we get the story.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. I only listened to this trilogy to discover what the fuss was all about. Due to the over the top fowl language and sexual content, I wouldn't recommend it.

Would you be willing to try another book from E. L. James? Why or why not?

No. Her language and unnecessary sex scenes detract and stall the story line too much.

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

I listen to books because it allows me to get other things done whereas reading a book is a singular activity. The readers can truly detract from the enjoyment of the story. I was glad that this wasn't the case with Becca.

Did Fifty Shades Freed inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

I was so thankful to finally get more story even though I fast forwarded through much of the book. If the unnecessary sex scenes were eliminated I bet the entire story could have been told in one book and it would have been captivating and a very good read/listen.

I can't listen to this narrator.

What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Freed?

I could not get past the narrator. It ruined the book for me. I quit listening to it and read it instead.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Becca Battoe?

anyone
