    Story
    "Not What I Expected..."
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Darker?

    Most of the time, I enjoyed the story. The subject matter was very adult for Anastasia's character to have been written as not much more than a teenager. She just seemed so completely immature and her character development was a little slow.


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

    Yes. Overall, I enjoyed the story the more that I listened to it.


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

    I haven't. I think that the only beef that I had with her performance was that she sounded like Anastasia.


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

    Who needs a tag line...just show the picture of Matt Bomer...yum!

    "Awesome!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed this one. It was better than all of them


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

    In this book, I don't think I could pick just one. Becca was very good in this. Better than the first. She really made Christian's character convincing.


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

    Yes I would

    "The only thing that would make this better......."
    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades Darker the most enjoyable?

    I loved how the story picked up right from where the first book Fifty Shades of Grey ended.
    I found the second book so hard to put down because you are so drawn to the characters and how their relationships evolve.


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

    I have not listened to any other of Becca Battoe's performances other than the Fifty Shades Trilogy.


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

    Yes if I would have been able to listen to this all in one sitting I would have.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that would have made this better is if the part of Christian Grey was actually spoken by a man.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I read the Title book and enjoyed the story, I can't continue with book two on audio. Will likely purchase the ebook. I totally enjoyed the female reader in Hunger Games, reading both genders. Must just be my taste.

    This is almost porn. I realize that it is an international best seller. It is more like a Harlequin romance
