    "Not a porn series!!! Love story that is amazing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, different experiences. Audio is hard to tell when she is thinking as oppose to speaking


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's love, unconditional love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she gives him her answer


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Passion


    Any additional comments?

    Don't disregard due to people saying it's porn. Far from it!!!

    Story
    "Another Excellent Read!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to a friend, with the appreciative viewpoint that it's a story focused more on the depths of the characters rather than the BDSM lifestyle.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I listened to Becca Battoe narrate the first book of Fifty Shades of Grey... She does a comparable job in performance on this second installment of the trilogy.


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

    The relationship between Christian and Anna often made me laugh as I read this book... As the old adage purports, "opposites attract".

    "The Narration is almost unbearable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I like the book but i think with better narration it could have been better


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    I'm not so sure, the male voices she portrays are unrealistic and creepy sounding

    Story
    "Why do I Keep Listening?"
    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Well, I did. Though reluctantly


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Book 3, but only because of the way this one ended. Im still not sure what made these books so popular. I guess I keep listening to trry to figure it out.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Well I guess that depends on what speed you have it set on. I have it at 1.5 to get it overwith faster.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifty Shades Darker?

    All of the scenes where Anna drolls on about how much she loves him. This b*tch is clueless. and some of the sex scenes - I think she copied and pasted most of them.


    Any additional comments?

    :-P

    "It's pretty good"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    The book series was good, not great. I would probably not read it again. It's a good read though and I'd recommend it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades Darker?

    I'm not sure any of the moments within this book were most memorable, but I did want to keep reading.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The red room scenes captured my interest the most.


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

    I didn't listen to this book in one sitting, but I did finish it within 2 days.
