    "More of the same..."
    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Yes, Becca Battoe.
    Maybe, E.L. James.


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

    The writing was repetitious, but once I was into the story I wanted to see it through.


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

    She brought the story to life.


    Did Fifty Shades Darker inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, and it definitely opened my eyes to emotionally abusive/control freak type behaviors.


    Any additional comments?

    Not at this time.

    "Riveting!"
    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades Darker the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was fabulous. The flow and symetry of the words simply kept me unually clear as I imagined the characters as each of them formed and came to life for me. One moment, I found myself uneasy, but not for the anticipation of what was to come next. However, the next pulsing moment just left me breathless and overwhelmed with emotion. I'm now in the middle of the next book and can hardly wait until the next chapter.

    "AMAZING!!!"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    Definitely! Who wouldn't read it again???


    What did you like best about this story?

    Um... hard to pick a specific one, I loved it all!


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    She reads it so well & makes the story seem so real!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oh yes, a couple! When Christian went missing, I was crying & anxious just waiting to see what would happen!


    Any additional comments?

    Once again, I can't wait to hear the next one! I saw that some people have left bad reviews for the performance of Becca Battoe, but I have to say I was not disappointed at all! It was just as good as the first one & I'm looking forward to the next one! Great job!!!

    "A deeper look into 50"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure, if they liked and read the first one.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has a bit more of a plot than the previous one, I rather enjoyed getting to know why 50 is so f*cked up. There is more going on, more character development and that makes it, to me, a better book.

    "Terrible Voice that ruins the book"

    The reader of this book was terrible. She made all "sexy" parts unsexy and her switching voices were terrible as well. You should redo this series.

    "Better than the First Book"

    If you want my opinion on the book in whole, read my review of the 1st book. While I did find the 2nd book easier to enjoy than the first the things that I dis-liked in the first novel were continued in this book. I will not be purchasing the 3rd book as I've had quite enough after the second.

    I'm glad I listened to the books, to at least say I'd been there and I went into the book with an open mind. I liked this series much better than Sylvain Reynard's Gabriel's Rapture but it came well under par compared to Sylvia Day's Crossfire novels.

    "Fifty Shades Is A Must Read!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    No I loved reading this book better, But I Would Consider Any Audio Book Over A Hard Back, because I can get more done listening than reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like mostly all of this story but if I had to pick my favorite part it would have to be the first kiss in the elevator if your not hooked on this book by that part you will be after that chapter.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s voice?

    Boring and dull yet soothing


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

    No
