Would you listen to Grey again? Why?
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!
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
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!
Have you listened to any of Zachary Webber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
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!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
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..
Any additional comments?
That's all folks:-)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
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.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes, in the fact that having read the others I really wanted to hear more and would have always wondered.
Has Grey put you off other books in this genre?
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.
What about Zachary Webber’s performance did you like?
Lovely voice, just as I had imagined Grey to sound. Felt the feelings really come through.
Was Grey worth the listening time?

THE WORST narration. Not sure I can listen to the whole thing. As we all know, the writing isn't great to start with but at least Becca Battoe gave the first three books some personality, thus getting to know characters and enabling you to loose yourself a little (and accept the books for what they were). This guy has absolutely NO intonation, rhythm - I could go on! Considering this is such a high profile book, I can't believe more care wasn't taken over the choice of narrator, direction/production. It seems the rush to get it out on audio has proved it's downfall. Extremely hard to listen to.
From a writing point of view, of course expectations cannot be high. However, for a complicated character like Christian Grey (as hinted at from Ana's pov in first three books) I'm hugely disappointed with his pedestrian thinking. I thought she might have injected something in there that we didn't already know by reading the first three books. That said, I've only managed to listen to the first few hours (for reasons described above). Maybe that's all I'll manage!
Hugely disappointed thus far.

Clear up Grey's behaviour, personally I didn't like the voice of the narrator,sound too old. I now also can relate the actor from the movie, Yes I was one who didn't like him for Grey I couldn't relate him to my Grey, But he portrait this Grey very well.
