    "May be better than Fifty Shades of Grey"

    Awesome! My favorite of the trilogy. Same narrator for all 3 books. Very captivating story if you liked the first book.

    Story
    "FILTHY shades of Grey"

    As if I haven't suffered enough though the first one, I had to go ahead and buy the second book. Clearly, I'm a glutton for punishment.

    If like me, you were hoping for the story/writing to improve... Let me stop you right there. It only goes down hill from here. This is only a repetition of the first book (they fight, make up then screw) only now, the sex scenes are even more obnoxious and desperate. Also, let's not forget those annoying never-ending emails they keep exchanging back and forth. UGH!

    Now that E.L. James had made a fortune selling this trash, she can certainly pay for a few creative writing classes.

    Story
    "Fifty Shades Deeper"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    Yes I would. This book delved into the main characters, and I got to learn what made them tick and why.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love both the main characters in this book equally for the same reason. In this book you get to see both Anna and Christian start to break out of their very hard and well placed shells. You get them see start to "heal" each other in a sense.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Becca is really good at bringing the charcaters to life in the way she narrates the stroy. As she was narrating I was able to really take the time to create the pictures and scenes in my head which is something I don't do much when reading myself, because my mind begins to wonder and I end up having to reread a page or sometimes a whole chapter.


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

    I could have listened to it all in one setting for sure, but I purposefully stretched it out as long as I could, so I would be able to enjoy it for several days and not just one.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved loved loved this book! Looking forward to starting the thrid and final book in the Fifty Shades Trilogy.

    "Awesome"

    Only one word comes to mind after reading this book it was simply awesome I loved it this book also had any intense arousal factor in the beginning of the read the narrator's voice was slightly annoying but as she gets into her character it was much better

    "Thumbs Down"

    This trilogy is turning out to be another story that should have been one book, but was stretched thinly into three to make more money.
    Half of this book was more of the same melodramatic whining present in book one, which was acceptable, considering the initial hurdles of youth, inexperience, virginity, secrets, hang-ups, and every other part of becoming intimately acquainted.
    But this second book was an irritating listen because more than half of it was a repeat of Steel's tantrums and whining.
    A different narrator might have change my reaction.

    "Worth It"

    I had said that I would not read these books if I had to purchase them. Well that was on the first book. I got it for free. As you know this is the second one, and I brought it. I loved it and believe it was worth the money. I must say that my opinion was based on what others thought about the sexual content of the book but what I feel people should be thinking about is the great story line. Yes, the sex is deep but it does not take away from the story line. Christian is in need of someone to love him for who he is and not what he can give them and she is that for him. Brought the last book and cannot wait to see the movie.
