    Story
    "The sex over-shadows any possible character depth!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Lighten-up a little on the sex, because after book 1 I'm longing to 'get inside of Christian's head'. Yeah, Christian alludes to some of his problems, but after finishing book 2, the man remains an enigma. By the middle of book 2, I began to fast-foward through the sex, because 'the thrill was gone' after book1 and the first 5 chapters of book 2.


    Would you recommend Fifty Shades Darker to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but with a disclaimer that the story seems to promise a lot that just isn't delivered in the end. It's very unlikely that I'll move on to book 3.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I'm unsure.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, especially if the movie found a way to add depth to Christian.

    Story
    "Fifty Shades Review"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Darker?

    In general, I liked the humor and the growth of Christian Grey due to Ana Steele remaining herself through the relationship.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anastasia Steele Grey...she was a wholesome, intelligent woman who loved with her whole heart.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    Of course, Anastasia Steele Grey.


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

    Yes, the book made me laugh, cry, and look at relationships in a different way.


    Any additional comments?

    I, particularly, liked the idea of having a contract in any relationship clearly stating expectations of each person in it. It was great entertainment and Becca Battoe kept me company over the last couple weeks and when I moved from Tempe, AZ to Montrose, CO.

    "Good Story, Well Read"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    Yes. I think Becca Battoe does a great job of giving different voices to each character. I absolutely love her voices for Christian and Ana.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    The main character, Ana, is my favorite...and a close second is Christian. Ms. Battoe does a good job with the tension, sex and anger. It's one HOT listen!

    "Narrator is disappointing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend the audio version of this book due to the narrator. She simply did not fit the subject matter.

    Story
    "Two Thumbs Down"
    What would have made Fifty Shades Darker better?

    A better narrator and a realistic plot.


    What could E. L. James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing. I bought it for my wife and she thought it was average.


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

    Almost anyone.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Explicit sexual scenes were. . .eh. . .stimulating.


    Any additional comments?

    Teenaged mentality a must to enjoy this one.
