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....

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.
How will I now live with out Mr Gary and this great story! This book had more story going on in it than the others. A great modern love story. It flew by far to fast!
I do like kick butt chick vampire slayers
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
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.
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!
I love fantasy, scifi, historical fact and fiction and some horror
If one was expecting Shakespeare then these are not the books. EL James wrote these books like real life. There are practices that are covered that even with a trusted partner are difficult to talk about with anyone else. There is a lifestyle that most women wish for that is coverd. I fell in love with the Gray family especially Christian. I loved how Anna was able to bring out the loving side of him. I have read the books over and have found it liberating.
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?
the third and final book i did,nt want it to end, but all good things always come to an end, i feel these audio books were more sensual to listen to, as i read half of the first book,it did,nt give out the full sensual meaning till i started listening to it.i cant wait till e.l.james brings another one out .
Just like the last two books this book was amazing as well. realy good story line. I could not anticipate what was going to happen next which is what made this book so good.
NOT HOW PEOPLE DESCRIBED IT TO BE...... ITS MUCH MORE DEEPER AND MEANINGFUL.... I LOVED THE TRILOGY BOOK 1 AND 3 MY FAVORITE.....THIRD TIME LISTENING NOW.... WOULD LOVE SOME MORE
"Don't miss the series"
One of the best book series I've listened to. A love story with lots of erotic sex to boot. all I can say is WOW.
"let me off"
It is like a merry go round, going around and around but you can not get off or stop the music!!
"next one already please!"
the story line and the way it was built from book one to the end of book three
I did get a bit frustrated wit the complete narration of subject lines and other mundane details of the email conversations.
"Such a lot of hype"
Definitely, I would cut a third of the sex out and condense the series into one book with a reasonable story line.
Not for a long time. Too much drawn out sex in the middle of the story just getting going. Repetitive language. I found myself fast forwarding past the sex to get back to the story.
Not too bad.
Yes and no. I enjoyed the book but became frustrated with Anastasia's language and her "Inner Goddess"
Just how naive can a woman be? Miss Steele and Mr Grey? Come on. A college student who is absolutely stunning and still a virgin??? Was this set in the wrong era??? A virgin who has rough initial sex then repeats it the next morning??? Unbelievable.
"A perfect finale"
Top 3 and only behind the first two.
When Ana has to save Mia from the clutches of Jack Hyde and she goes to the bank to get the money and Christian asks her if it was always about the money. My heart broke for him, completely broke.
All the different characters come to life
When Ana found out Christian had gone to see Mrs Robinson after storming out after finding out Ana was pregnant.
If it was ONE book instead of drawn out to three
Understandable, and good inflections
This set of books to me, was whiny and monotonous and not very well written. Could have put everything in to one book instead of stretching it out and making it boring. This set of books ticked me off more than inspired me. By the third book you just knew how the characters were going to react and what they were going to say. AND I found myself saying "NOT fair" a lot and rolling my eyes. I don't think I would recommend this book to anyone.
"Waiting for book 4"
It has a good plot and it has the potential for further books to be written , even a mini series for TV
Mr Grey of course
First night in the pleasure room
"The hype sold this series - 100% for marketing"
Narrator had a very irritating whiny voice especially when trying to "change" characters
Condese the 3 books into 1 book I was often bored and impatient with the "perfection" of Christian Grey.
Someone with a less specific accent? I loved Davina Porter in the Outlander series
It certainly made me question my idea of what is acceptable sex between committed couples who are open and honest with each other. It also reminded me of how dangerously overwhelming sexual attraction can be, especially for the 18 - 25 age group.
Take away all the kinkery sex and it was just a feel good Mills and Boon story marketed by a brilliant publisher! I loved the covers of the books
"Love the trilogy & this last book is a great end!"
AS inpiring to the other two books this one put a bit more of edge on Ana & christian history love the end and every through that, also is realy well spoken in a way that put you there insde the book!
when they go back to the first time they meet from Chrsitin prospective ans the acion part were she is hurt by Hyde
love her voice and the way she narrates
"So good cant wait for the movie."
Yes and I have.
I would love to 50 out to dinner.
Loved the story line,
