    Story
    "Not as expected"
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades Darker?

    There were great expectations based on the hype. Perhaps a new genre of edgy erotica to be savored.. But in spite of a promising start the story settled into a typical romantic novel. The author's description of her sexual experiences were pretty good, but the dark erotica went untold.


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

    My own expectations


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

    No


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Darker?

    The wishy washy billionaire

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

    I do enjoy most all audio editions of the books I read more so than print editions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian Gray, I liked learning more about his character. More than just his sexual side.


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

    Becca Battoe does a great job with all the characters.

    "More bang for your buck in book two..."
    Where does Fifty Shades Darker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Entertaining for what it is but not on my keeper shelf. A one time listen is enough.


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

    Now that would spoil it for those who haven't read or listened yet so I will plead the fifth here. This book was the most adventurous of the three if that helps.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not a fan of the narration of this book. Sorry to say...


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

    Cover your eyes!
