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

    I don't have time to sit and read a book. This is my best option. I loved it. I feel you can really get into it, lost almost.


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

    THE WHOLE SECOND BOOK! I had something going on in my life that seemed to mirror what was happening (to some degree you know). My boyfriend and I were experiencing everything and I would tell him about the book and he would say "are they following us?" I love it!!


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

    There was parts of emotion that I think she nailed. She really brought that out to the listeners.


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

    Every emotion you can think of! This book was my life the whole way through. Timing for me was perfect!


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely love it!

    Story
    "A little better than the first one"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The pace could be a little faster


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I'd stay on the main theme that made the media, BDSM. It seems that it's fading away to a regular romance.


    What aspect of Becca Battoe’s performance would you have changed?

    She's great. They just should have her not doing his voice.


    Could you see Fifty Shades Darker being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    If it were to be transformed in a TV series it would have to be so washed out that nothing would remain for more than an episode or two. Movie? It would definitely be a spicy chick flick.

    "When will the book end!"

    The story is unique (to me) but so llllllooonnnnggg and boring. The listener does feel for the characters, but it just couldn't keep my attention. I'd like to see how the story ends, but I don't think I could last through another Fify Shades marathon.
