    "Interesting finish to this series..."
    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades Darker the most enjoyable?

    I like listening because it allows me to create a "movie" in my head and E L James did a great job of character development throughtout the the entire series.


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

    Yes, I like the way the story unfolds and the detail of the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The time in Aspen when Christian finally relaxed and showed a side of him we hadn't seen up to that point.


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

    Fifty Shades of Grey...Anna's Awakening


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed the Epilogue as well...looking forward in time.

    Story
    "Really not what I wanted"
    What would have made Fifty Shades Darker better?

    After the first book I was looking forward to hearing the second book. Unfortunately, by the second book I got sick of the mannerism of the performer (possibly in the book, but still irritating). And seriously, this girl is supposed to be 'new' to sex, yet this book is a story around sexual escapades and I am sorry, a woman is not going climax with her guy everytime.
    The author is good at cliff hangers at the end of the books, but I have no interest in hearing the third book.


    Has Fifty Shades Darker turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. Don't want a perfect girl and perfect guy. There is no such thing.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice really irritated me after awhile


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Darker?

    The main characters are very shallow


    Any additional comments?

    Done with this author. She may be making $$$ hand over fist, but not from me. Fun to hear the first one because it was so different than anything I had ever heard and it is fun to know what people are talking about when they say "fifty shades of crazy" etc. but just a bit too much fluff for me.

    Where does Fifty Shades Darker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Listening was a pleasure, this book was very engaging. I listened in the car, while I worked and during busy time at home.

    "Better than the first..."

    This book to me was better than the first.....It focused more on the relationship instead of just the sex. It also helped that the narrator's voice didn't sound like a 13 year old child. The vulnerability of Christian was easier to see, and he almost seemed like a real human being. Not the best book I have read all year, and definately not worth all of the hype, but still a good read!

    "The best out of 3!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because I can listen to it while driving :)


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

    Haven't read anything like this yet


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

    I think that her voice fits Ana's character very well bringing out her emotions and thoughts


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

    It made me almost cry when on the part of Christian being weak at Ana's feet and asking her to marry him


    Any additional comments?

    Still hot and sexy, but also deeply emotional and touching book

    "Part two is engaging of Fifty Shades Darker!"
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Darker in three words, what would they be?

    It's so good I had to register to each section Twice so that I would not miss the action.

    "Love The Book, Not the Narrator!!!"
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Darker in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, Thrilling and Wonderful


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't have one favorite character, I have two. Christian and Ana are my favorites.Watching how Ana's love for Christian changes him to want to do whatever is necessary to make her happy is a wonderful experience.


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

    No!!!! I don't not like her narration. Her attempt to change her voice to a man's was very annoying to me. I would've returned the book if it wasn't such a good story.


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

    That would be a great thing but who has time like that?
