    "The best of the 3"

    This book in the series is the most exciting, filled with constant ups and downs. I was listening constantly wanting to know what happened next. For having no experience writing the author did a good job.

    Story
    "You hang up, no you hang up. OH MY...(CHOKE)"

    Its twilight sage with dirty sex and less story.
    The narrator is unbelievable.
    Spoiler alert... OMG my man is so hot and rich. Im so clumsy. His sister is so quirky. Am i really pretty? Lets get married and be happy forever.
    I wanna choke the writer while I suspect it is steph meyers filling in the sex blanks.
    Save your credit.
    It may have been better except for the very horriable narrator. She is awful
    And would you please stop trying to prove how smart you are? No one talks like that. And men like him dont do 180's.

    Story
    "Love, love, love!!!!"
    What did you love best about Fifty Shades Darker?

    I love the plot, the characters, and I love the fact that it's exotic!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian Grey is my favorite character because he's complex, exotic, and eventually a hard nut to crack and then enjoy (pun intended).


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

    I love Becca Battoe and she enhances The Shades Triology not that it needs enhancing.


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

    I loved this book I have the hard copy and the audible version that I listen to atleast once a week when I am not into other books.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be compared to Twilight series. And it also should be compared to
    Grey's Anatomy (I know it's not a novel). The Twilight series because there are a lot of similarites with the main characters in each book. The Twilight series is a very watered down version of Fifty Shades.

    Story
    "Better than the first book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, I have already recommended this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian, because of all the changes he made in his life.


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

    You know, I had the books, but I let Becca read them with me and it enhanced my reading. When you read the book by yourself sometimes you don't put emphasis where you should.


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

    The book makes you laugh and cry. It is so full of emotions, even the sexaul scenes got to me.

    Story
    "2nd book mystery"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    Audio reader well done! I enjoyed the book on Audio- in the car, at the farm, or just relaxing at home. I have kids and to leave this book around wouldn't be appropriate as a parent. Kids are kids. I like the privacy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades Darker?

    I enjoyed the 2nd book more than the first because it was more of a story line. Its heartfelt and an easy read. It does leave you wanting to find out more-the mysterious side of things are explained but not complete just yet.


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

    Excellent Excellent....no hesitations on buying another book with her as the reader. Expressions, tones and articulations are great!


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

    Some disturbing issues that can strike a mother in her heart. Its an awful thought of any child being abused.


    Any additional comments?

    Good easy read/listen. If you liked book 1, book 2 is better. I enjoyed it very much and am now listening to book 3.

    "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.

    "Enjoyed this strange story.."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, My friends are not going to like the lifestyle or language.


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

    Haven't read anything like this before.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope there is a sequel.

    There was tons of repetition.... Lots of phrases used over and over again.
