Publisher's Summary

E L James revisits the world of Fifty Shades with a deeper and darker take on the love story that has enthralled millions of fans around the globe.

Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms.

But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana's scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian's confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?

And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

Best book yet

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Hearing the story from Christian’s point of view made the story really interesting. Looking forward to hearing the last instalment.

?????

Seriously I feel robbed, I’m sure my review will be disliked by many but let’s be real for a moment.
Grey was a book released as told by Christian, this was pretty much the same with a touch more storyline into other relationships in his life eg: his personal assistant, trainer
(I MEAN COME ON).
And if that isn’t a slap in the face for fans of FSOG it ends at the proposal, 17hrs and it just end at that.
His view on the kidnaping and married life, the birth of his child would have been wonderful inclusions in this book. But come to think of it that was in the book Grey.
I’m a massive fan of this series, I’ve read all the books and own all the audiobooks and have watched both the movies released so far, and I’ll be going to see the next one when released.
So this was very difficult for me to write, but if your going to leave a review it must be an honest review.
As far as the narrative goes loved it, I think the voice of the grandfather is one of my favorites.
Well rounded performance by Zachary Webber

Excellent narration of the book

If you like the book, you will like this. Another excellent narration by ZW. I wish the original Anastasia's view of the story had an equally good narrator. I hope the third volume from Christians view is also in the plans for release. I would like the complete picture of his thoughts and actions it explains so much.

wasn't what I expected.

I was very excited for this. It started well and Zachary overall was very good. however, the story seemed a bit rushed and despite its good start, got really boring.

saying that, i love the fifty shades books and still hope for fifty shades freed in Christians pov next year.

DISAPPOINTING

Felt like i had read it before. Did not find out much i didnt already know from the first book. Really feel she should have stopped at tge trilogy, this feeks like a rip off to her readers. Zacchery Webber did a good job narating though.

Good sequel

I have really enjoyed this second book from E.L. James.
There are some very interesting details provided into Christian’s early life that help you understand the man inside.
He is a man coming out of the darkness and finding himself not to be the monster he thought he was.
The horrific childhood coupled with the abuse metered out to him in his teens has left the man cold and unfeeling. But, throughout the story, there are glimpses of the goodness inside.
Zachary Webber’s narrative is excellent and clearly illustrates a broken mans desperate attempt to embrace a new life.
I hope that James goes on to write Freed. Just to complete Christian story.

Wow! Loved it....

To hear this story from Christian’s perspective was enlightening. To hear what he was thinking and feeling was so much more enjoyable. Such a tortured man but such a lovable man. By far Grey and now Darker are the books in the series that I like the most!
