A GoodReads Choice Awards Finalist for Best Romance"In a class by itself." --"Entertainment Weekly"
In James's controversial and wildly popular first-person erotic romance, co-ed Anastasia Steele is drawn into a dark relationship with a wealthy man named Christian Grey, who is seeking a submissive for his sexually dominant desires. But what Ana and Christian find instead is unexpected companionship and mutual respect. Becca Battoe, whose reading captures the spirit of easygoing, innocent, and educated Anastasia, narrates this endearing audio edition. Battoe's reading is crisp, clean, and well paced. Her version of the inexperienced Ana is full of wonder, horror, and amazement, and she nimbly handles the book's more steamy moments. For the other characters, Battoe offers up understated renderings-capturing the characters as Ana sees them. Fans of the series-or erotic fiction in general-will be delighted. A Vintage paperback.

All the hipe and stories about this book. Who paying them to do it! I found it had limited story not even than interesting in the sex I have just finished a Johanna Lindsey book I was lent and it was like reading the same set of feeling exactely. By page 200 I was bored had to force myself to keep reading.
Couldn't agree more, this is trash in the best seller list.... no plot and the sex (which, let's face it is why all the hype) it's predictable. I must admit I'm only half way through but I don't think I will be able to finish this.
I purchased this book due to all the hype, so I figured I had nothing to loose. It's pretty predictable but was ok for the $14.00 I paid for it. I've paid a lot more from other shops for worse books. Buying books is a bit like gambling really. I won't be recommending it though and won't bother spending money to buy the other two. It's not a best seller by any means. I was more engrossed reading Barbara Erskins Lady of Hay, or Kingdom of Shadows. Mind you, I'm a person who found Dan Browns "Divinci Code" extremely boring!
Things that are better than this book: hysterical crying, falling over, getting hit by a bus, swimming in the antarctic, lemon juice in your eye, getting bitten by a dog, listening to a baby cry for 12 hours straight, being punched in the face, stubbing your little toe on the corner of a tile, being karate chopped in the throat...I think you get the picture. If you enjoy good literature then you wont enjoy this. Having said that, this is the best book in the series, don't even think about reading the others; life is too precious and you can't get those hours back.
