Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content
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....

By the third book I was really tired with the characters especially Christian.
His obsession with Ana became overbearing and even a turnoff. The only time he was happy with her was when he was screwing her, otherwise he was sulky, whiny and possessive... Not hot at all.
Ana just became lame, being so weak willed against him. Totally out of touch.
The phrases and lines became cringeworthy + more repetitive throughout the trilogy to the point I was rolling my eyes with annoyance. Lacked originality, and felt like I was looking into a teenagers wet dream. Juvenile.

New Narrator Needed.

The narrator of this series is not really suited to the genre. Perhaps she would be better with lighter chick lit but her narration of the Fifty Shades series is cringeworthy.
She mispronounces words, takes pauses is awkward places and her ‘voices’ for the characters are quite irritating.
For Anastasia she puts on a voice I would imagine you would assign to a 16 year old girl. I know Ana is, in the beginning, inexperienced and timid but her tone is too young. As the books progress so does Ana’s character and she becomes a more confident and bolder woman which doesn’t come through in the narrative.

Christian’s ‘voice’ is so far off the mark. I know that it is difficult for a female voice to portray the tone of a male but this is such a mess. There are female narrators out there who can quite successfully do a male voice. For example, Andi Arnt. In this instance though, Christian sounds like a permanently grumpy old man who when experiencing moments of raw emotion is borderline pathetic. She makes him sound like a whinging man child. She can’t find a middle ground between enraged crazy tyrant and sulking whimpering man.

Due to the great success of the books and also the movies I don’t know why these books haven’t been re-recorded with a narrator who is more well known and great at what they do.
For these books especially, the duet style of narration would be incredible and add so much more depth and entertainment to the listeners experience. Primarily read by a female, but a male to speak male lines.
Zachary Webber does an incredible job on “Grey” and “Darker”. He does a better female voice than Becca Battoe.

If Audible re-recorded these books with a different female narrator and Zachary Webber reading the male lines, it would bring the books up to the level of quality you would expect from a huge worldwide success.
