    Story
    "Darker is more romatic!"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    I love this whole series and would listen all over again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In this book Anna and Christian fall deeper in love than just having the carnal sex relationship, which is dont get me wrong great too.


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

    Too hot for T.V.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not understand why everyone rags about the commentary because I believe she does a fine job with this book.

    Fifty Shades of Grey... Same Story... Just a continuation... She was great.


    Could you see Fifty Shades Darker being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I hope not for prime time! The guy needs to be gorgous..

    Not sure about Anestasia.

    Story
    "The entire series was awesome"
    What would have made Fifty Shades Darker better?

    The only thing That could make Fifty Shades Darker any better, is that it would not have to end. I have never read anything as provacitive and heartfelt. The story lived up to the hype, and left you wanting more and more!!


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

    Keep writing more to this series.


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

    She was excellent


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

    Nothing

    "Becca Battoe unfair,"

    I'm sorry but i disagree with the remarks made by some of the writers. I loved Becca Battoe
    version of the reading of 50 Shades of Gray. I really like her Mr Steele . She's only one person.I will be buying my third book only if she is reading.

    Story
    "Romance . . . with a big twist!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, and I did, because it is not your everyday romance!


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

    I have not read a book than I can compare it too.


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

    Becca reads Ana like a book. To me she is Ana, with Ana's innosence and energy. Her voice sounds like that of a young girl just starting an adult life.


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

    This book, this Triology, will bring out the emotions of most anyone who has a heart.

    "Bad VO read, story not great either"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    teenagers


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    it wasn't believable - also it would have been better if they had a male and female vo rather than the female reading both parts


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

    disappointment - I had heard a lot of hype about it, but found it to be boring and more suited toward teenagers than adults.
