Yes, and I have. The ending is great, although it does tend to wander a bit in the middle.
great to get more insight into Christian's background and love the additional characters.
Have never seen the print version
Anastasia was my favorite as I can really relate to her innocence at the beginning and her growth towards the end of the books.
This was a very enjoyable study in relationships. I particularly enjoyed the interactions with the family.
Yes, because I listened as I worked out at the gym. I was curious.
Not sure, but I was most assuredly looking for something more. Perhaps more character development for Jason Taylor and Jose Rodriguez. I think more expansion on thier roles would make the story more interesting.
BTW I love her inner goddess! Don't we all have one? The way she pole vaults and pirouettes, grimaces etc. was adorable. I could totally relate to that. The incorporation of Ana's conscience as a separate character was simply genius.
A male w/ a deep sensual voice for the character of Christian. Perhaps Dion Graham or Morris Chestnut. Becca was fine for the female roles.
Yes, I'd like to see what happens later and how and if thier relationship continues to develop. Could Ana sexuality mature such that she becomes bored w/ Fifty?
By this point in the trilogy, Christian and Ana are a solid couple. She has peeled away his steely, Dom persona and captured his heart. The steamy, erotic sex that these books are known for has now become redundant to me. To the author's credit, writing about so much S&M sex between the same two people who have so much sex and keep it hot all the while, has to be extremely challenging. Given the enormity of that task, she did a decent job. The story kept me interested enough to continue because there was just enough drama and depth to make me want to see what would happen next. I listened to it on audio and I must say, I didn't enjoy having it narrated by the same female voice all the way thru. This totally ruined the sexy for me. Hearing a female do the voice of Christian Grey, kills the fantasy.
At first I wondered why E.L. James continued; however I'm so happy that she did. Darker has a great plot. Lots of things that I didn't expect. Fifty shades is at the top of my favorite books. It is a great series, not all about sex ( I wish it didn't have that stigma attached). Yes, some parts are hot and heavy; however it isn't all about that.
Best decision to was to continue. Lots of questions resolved. :)
A better writer
Not at all. Just from this particular author
I guess it does add a glimpse into the bsdm world without going overboard. For those with a lighter palate it ma fit the bill.
Brutally inaccurate as a true pic of an alternative lifestyle, but some may find the loose love story plot enough to carry them through. Barely
Grandma who doesn't look like a grandma
A Real Story Line ThaT would Has SubsWould Have Been Nice. Anne Rice Write A Series Of S & M Books Years Ago That Are Way Better Than This Serie.
Had Someone Else Write It..
It keep me wanting more. I did not want to turn it off.
Anna was my favorite. So sweet and how she could changes Christen was amazing.
This is the first time I have listen to her. I thought she was Great. I would love to hear another book read by her.
There was so many.
I read others peoples reviews on this book and I am so glad that I didnt listen. I heard all 3 books and kind sad that there isnt more.
There wasn't much I enjoyed about this book. In fact I had to listen to it in double speed just to get through the agonizing narration. I can't quite grasp what everyone is raving about. The characters are unlikeable. Aside from Christians wealth and good looks he would represent a nightmare to be in a relationship with. Overbearing, jealous etc etc. and Anastasia is pathetic. Come on with the dialog. How many Holy craps, holy shits, and holy f**ks, can one insert. Not to mention this girl who speaks like she's fresh out of junior high, goes from an entry level position, is so irresistable that a man would throw his entire career away just to sleep with her, then she is the most qualified person to take over running the company? Paleeeeze. Throw in the crazy ex-lover stalking them, just bad. The Ohhhh Anna's during their sexcapades (which actually started to become boring) made my skin crawl. The narrators interpretation of Christian was aweful, she should only do young female voices, ever. Read it if you must but don't bother listening
She was too slow, boring. The only thing she captured well was Anastasia's child like qualities
The book was so bad I couldn't even finish it even listening at double speed. I can deal with a bad narrator if the story is good but I found nothing redeeming about this second edition.
Definitely. It wasn't as "dirty" as I expected, but I enjoyed the story line. It passed the time on my long commute.
This book was one on the best book I've read and listen this year! Lot of ideas you can use to spice up your marriage.
