    Story
    "Second book is even better!"
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Darker again? Why?

    Yes I would. It is entertaining. I enjoyed the book. Some shocking, some heartwarming and some very relatable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The discovery that compromise can work if you want something bad enough.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    At first when I listened to the 50 Shades of Gray book 1 audio i was not fond of Becca's voice but the more I listened I realized her voice what the right age for Ana. I ended up liking her narration.


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

    both sort of. the ups and down of Ana and Christian's relationship turned good and bad so quickly at times...


    Any additional comments?

    looking forward to listening to book 3!

    Story
    "Don't waste your money"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better writing and much better narrator.


    What was most disappointing about E. L. James’s story?

    The narrator just didn't cut it, made the female lead sound windy and just wrecked the visual for the male lead, Christian. He deserved a strong male voice.


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

    No


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

    No

    Story
    "Better than Book I, Fifty Shades"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Fifty Shades Darker focused a bit more on the relationship between Christian and Anastasia. I enjoyed the excitement and danger as well.

    I found myself looking for reasons to get into my car so I could listen, rather than my usual avoiding driving like the plague.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Becca is a master at creating and maintaining all the character's different voices. She makes it easy to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Actually, I'm on my second time around listening. I think I'll listen to all three again.

    Story
    "Couldn't stop listening"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I could not stop listening for a moment. I was completely addicted.However I must admit that the story is very basic, and reminded me of the romance I used to read as a teenager. The erotic part is fun at times and fantastic overall.It was like eating chips: you can't stop even though you know the colinary values aren't optimal.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Gone Girl

    Story
    "Wow-Curl your toes for the hopeless romantic"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Darker?

    The journey started for Anna in the first book continues. I'm torn between the birthday present for Christen, the key to the room, and Mrs Robinson being doused with a drink being my favorite parts.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Anna. For someone so innocent and at that point in her life to wander into his world a save him from his demons is amazing and the love is unbounding.


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

    Just love her narration. She makes Anna almost real.
