    Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist.

    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Perhaps. It really depends on the subject matter.


    Would you be willing to try another book from E L James? Why or why not?

    Yes. I will READ the third book in this trilogy when I am done READING this second book. I will not LISTEN anymore to the "50 Shades" books. That is unless I could download the original version. I did not mind it. Anything is better than this second narration. I HATE it!


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    The male voices are absolutely horrible, paticularly Christian. I cannot listen any longer and I am only on Chapter 2. I am going to go buy the book today. I definitely prefer the first version of the narration. I did not mind Becca in the first version. Yes, she did sound young, clueless and a bit like a Disney character but I found her performance believable. Her voice reminded me of Amy Adams. In this new narration Becca sounds more like Christian did in the original version. Her performance comes across very flat and uninspired. Christian sounds like a large, clumsy, slow witted buffoon. I can't stand listening any longer. By the way, this is the first review I have ever written here. I have been listening to audio books for years and love Audible. This was the biggest waste of a credit for me.


    Did Fifty Shades Darker inspire you to do anything?

    The audio version inspired me to go out and buy the book.
