In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.
Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty - until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair.
He tries to forget her but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him - past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian's cold, wounded heart.
Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

If you've read 50 shades this gives you a look into the character and formative years of Christian. The story is still weak and repetetive but it does provide provide a context for the darkness in Christian's character. A good addition to the successful trilogy.
Yes, in the fact that having read the others I really wanted to hear more and would have always wondered.
Not at all. The genre is fine, it was the cheap repetitiveness that was almost offensive. It was literally what Anastasia had said in the other books with a mans voice. I couldn't quite believe it. Shockingly poor attempt of a book.
Lovely voice, just as I had imagined Grey to sound. Felt the feelings really come through.
I was really looking forward to this book, I was very disappointed. It was the same story. I would not recommend wasting you money on this book if you have already read fifty shades. Wish I hadn't bought it :-(
Yes I will not buy another book from grey..... I love the original and will stick with that.
He was not my Mr grey
Unfortunately not for me. I kept thinking "it'll get better" it didn't .
Would not recommend
This book is fantastic. It really helps you to see why Christian Grey is like he is. Your heart reaches out to the small damaged child.
So much better than the female narrator of the 50 shades of Grey book. I could listen to this over and over again!! Hopefully there will be a second book through Christian Greys eyes. I much prefer his perspective over Ana Steele's, she just winges all the time. I'm more the darker side.
"Zachary Webber is Christian Grey:-)"
Maybe but only if Zachary Webber as the Narrator, he was the reason that I pre-ordered it as soon as I found he was narrating Grey.. then it was a buy for me!
Nothing, it allows us to understand Christian the readers/listeners needed POV from Grey's side of thoughts & to know what he feels & thinks helps us to understand him better!
Zachary Webber is my headline, I think that states it all :-) I just see Zach's name on narration for a book & the book is sold for me. As for Zach's performance of Christian Grey he speaks slow enough to hear every word & he became the part.. he is Christian!
Not extreme reaction, just a better understanding of Christian & that he honestly does love Anatasia, but gives in to his dark side, and we know why..
That's all folks:-)
Zachary Webber's voice was like warm chocolate running over your body, he was perfect for the character voice of Christian Grey.
All I can say is OMFG Grey's POV is spectacular, having an insight into what is going on in Grey's brain is brilliant, narrated by Zachary Webber who's voice is like melted chocolate flowing over your body I cannot wait for Darker and Freed to be released. You will be amazed at how different Grey's POV is, this is even better than the original story.
"Seventy-Five Shades of Re-Cycled"
I felt cheated by this purchase. It was virtually the same book as the original Fifty Shades until three quarters of the way through, when the author decided to give us slightly more insight into Christian's character. I won't be purchasing any further episodes in this series.
Why did not the author write Fifty Shades of Grey the series, in entirety, through the point of view of Christian? That would have been way better.
It was great to hear this story from the other side, I went in knowing that the story line would be the same and wasn't expecting anything different. I was only disappointed that it didn't finish book 3.
love book love book is the book love book is the book is the best good how am I
"Love this book..."
Hearing the story from Christian's point of view is really great. I can't wait for the next book, as the tale continues..
"The man's side of the story"
The ending is too abrupt.
The author was more descriptive.
Expansion of the story
I would have liked the story to at least finish where the book did.
"what's up with that?"
Bought the audio book but cannot hear it I'll give a review when I do.
This was an awesome book really enjoyed it. The narrator is very good at what he does he make the book more real.
