What would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?
First, get a better narrator. I never read the book in print. However, listening to Ana and Christian's endless emails, (including dates and times) made me want to pass out from bordom. Further, the constant bickering between Ana's subconsious and her "inner goddes" was annoying, and the writer's overly-generous use the terms "holy cow", "holy s--t", and "oh my" became predictable. I'm no prude, and have read many books with erotic components. However, with the writer's use of the same descriptions over and over again (e.g. "exquisit orgasm"), even the sex scenes became boring. I truely don't understand why this book has received so much hype.
What could E L James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Take a writing class
Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. James again?
Her announcement that she is retiring from writing?
How could the performance have been better?
Stop whining and dropping off on the end of her words like a lazy Valley-girl.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
it taught me to always read reviews first and I enjoyed reading some of the other regretful reviews.
Any additional comments?
I'm sad for all of us.
