SUMMARY (60 words or less)
This book took me several attempts to get through despite all the rave reviews. It wasn’t that interesting to me until around the 75% mark at which point the story opened up for me. I’m disappointed it took that long to get there. I will likely read the next book.

Audio Review
Khristine Hvam did an excellent job with the voices and bringing me into a world inside a world. Although this book didn’t hold my attention, I don’t think I can blame the narrator.

★Ruth★ Oh no! are you not enjoying it?

Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey) The writing is great. The storyline interesting. But I have yet to connect with it.

Christie I love it but I need to re-listen to it, so I can listen to the second one.

Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey) I had a hard time with this one. But everyone loved it. So I'm giving it a second chance.

Ashleyjo I've picked this up at least a dozen times to buy but always end up putting it back for something else. Dunno.. Maybe that's a sign lol:/
