Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist.

They rekindle their searing, sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades.

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

Narrator's voice grated my nerves

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I purchased 50 Shades Darker after listening to Grey. It's been so long since I read the books, I got caught up in the story again. I enjoyed listening to Grey so purchased Darker immediately after I finished without listening to the audio sample. I will never make that mistake again! It was hard to get through this audiobook even though I was excited to go back to the story of Ana and Grey. The narrator's voice just grated on my nerves.

What did you like best about this story?

The story of Ana and Gray.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's voice is so annoyingly shrill it's almost comical. When she quotes Grey or any other male character, it's even worse. It is my opinion that the narrator was the wrong fit for this story. Her voice does not portray the confused, naive Ana that we would expect. Her voice is just wrong for the character.

Fun Book, amarteurish narration

I've read the books but was terribly disappointed in this narrator's performance. It was stilted and without any acting capability whatsoever. Please get a real actor to redo the books.
