    "Oh Boring...."

    "I gape at him"..."Oh Christian"...
    "Oh my 50 shades" . Save me now. I grew so tired of hearing the same lines repeated over and over, so I gave up on it. Poorly written. Why is this so popular? Don't waste your precious credit on it.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Captivating"

    It has everything one wants in a book, it's exciting, funny and well yes lots of sex very erotic sex, but it is also a love story with all the twists of one. It will make you cry and laugh and want more, you fall in love with both characters and well it's only fair that I say that men like Christian Grey are only make believe in books. Don't miss this series!!

    "Utter rubbish"
    What would have made Fifty Shades Darker better?

    More about the story of the two people rather than their very boring sex life. I feel stupid for buying it, really stupid. I loved hearing about Christian's lifestyle but that's about it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Becca Battoe?

    Someone who doesn't say "oh my!" every third sentence in that revolting accent.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyance


    Any additional comments?

    The first book I managed to read, this one I just couldn't bear.

    "Riviting 2nd Installment"

    The story continues from where Ana has left her beloved Christian, these are two modern day lovers just one is Fifty Shades ........ ed. It has everything one wants in a book, it's exciting, funny and well yes lots of sex very erotic sex, but it is also a love story with all the twists of one. It will make you cry and laugh and want more, you fall in love with both characters and well it's only fair that I say that men like Christian Grey are only make believe in books. You want to follow their journey and see where it takes them, just wait till the final book Fifty Shades Freed, it's a ripper. All I will say is laters baby......

    "Torn"

    I found this really difficult to rate - it does get you in - but its the classic girls meets screwed up millionaire. The plot is weak and predictable - you think that there is going to be some drama some suspense but it fizzles out.
    Focused way too much on having sex every five minutes - but with more in the story line even that could have been forgiven.
    Its pretty much Mills and Boon on steroids. If you want an easy listen that wont keep you awake at night this is it. Oh and just a tiny bit of day dreaming about being with Mr Grey and his money lol

    Great book, easy listening. There were a few parts that were a bit drawn out but taking breaks from it helped.

    Lovely story and will read / listen to the next one.

    "It only gets better"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Darker?

    Christian asking Ana to marry him.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades Darker to and why?

    Nothing compares to this


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Yes, what an amazing talent in her voice becoming all the different characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listened to it on my journey to and from work over a couple of weeks.

    "Darker and loving it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    This audiobook brought the characters to life.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was most interesting to see how the author portrayed dom and sub relationships.

    Some of the dialogue was a little boring.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Her voice sounded like someone who may be of Anna's age.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did cry at some points and felt warm and fuzzy at others


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "The erotic becomes sultry!"

    I enjoyed listening to the unwrapping of the dark Christian and the possibly too easy acceptance of Anna's love. However, good to have the twist of danger added!

    "Another beautiful read."

    I absolutely loved this audible, after the first one it was only a matter of time before I was going to listen to the second one. It was incredible.

    I really like the performance that the reader has to give and even though for some her voice can be annoying it definitely grows on you after a while.

    I cannot wait to move onto the third on now.

    "surprisingly good."

    The media hype put me off these books. I finally gave in when a friend whose opinion I value recommended I get the narrated version.
    I think I would have struggled with the paperback, but as my first narrated book series, I thoroughly enjoyed being able to listen while doing other things. I also think seeing the film was a benefit - with its excellent casting, which helped me visualize the events as they happened. Looking forward to the conclusion.

    "A true ladies fantasy."

    Narrator: it would have been more enjoyable if there was a female and male playing the parts, as the female changed her voice,
    A great story, I have never read a book like this one, my brains was doing all sorts.
    Can't wait to listen to freed,
