Publisher's Summary

Please note: This audiobook contains graphic adult content.

Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.... Daunted by the dark secrets of the tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Ana Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a US publishing house. But desire for Grey still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, she cannot resist.

Soon she is learning more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades than she ever thought possible.

But while Grey wrestles with his inner demons, Ana must make the most important decision of her life. And it's a decision she can only make on her own....

    "Great Listen!!"

    I really enjoyed listening to the book I found becca's voice to be perfect for the age and I also enjoyed her enthusiasm. but I hated listening through the emails why read each emails date, time and signatures it was very repetitive and annoying.. other then that I was obsessed :)

    "Enjoyed"

    I giggled and actually cried
    Although the writing isn't the best the story is great- a great distraction from reality.
    The narrators voice takes a little while to warm to but you do get used to it.

    "Literally 50 shades darker"

    This is the book that sold me on the series. Really enjoyed it, looking forward to the next one. Still not overly enthused about becca battoe as narrator though.

    "Oh my 50 shades" . Save me now. I grew so tired of hearing the same lines repeated over and over, so I gave up on it. Poorly written. Why is this so popular? Don't waste your precious credit on it.

    "Captivating"

    It has everything one wants in a book, it's exciting, funny and well yes lots of sex very erotic sex, but it is also a love story with all the twists of one. It will make you cry and laugh and want more, you fall in love with both characters and well it's only fair that I say that men like Christian Grey are only make believe in books. Don't miss this series!!

    "Utter rubbish"
    What would have made Fifty Shades Darker better?

    More about the story of the two people rather than their very boring sex life. I feel stupid for buying it, really stupid. I loved hearing about Christian's lifestyle but that's about it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Becca Battoe?

    Someone who doesn't say "oh my!" every third sentence in that revolting accent.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyance


    Any additional comments?

    The first book I managed to read, this one I just couldn't bear.

    "Riviting 2nd Installment"

    The story continues from where Ana has left her beloved Christian, these are two modern day lovers just one is Fifty Shades ........ ed. It has everything one wants in a book, it's exciting, funny and well yes lots of sex very erotic sex, but it is also a love story with all the twists of one. It will make you cry and laugh and want more, you fall in love with both characters and well it's only fair that I say that men like Christian Grey are only make believe in books. You want to follow their journey and see where it takes them, just wait till the final book Fifty Shades Freed, it's a ripper. All I will say is laters baby......

    "Torn"

    I found this really difficult to rate - it does get you in - but its the classic girls meets screwed up millionaire. The plot is weak and predictable - you think that there is going to be some drama some suspense but it fizzles out.
    Focused way too much on having sex every five minutes - but with more in the story line even that could have been forgiven.
    Its pretty much Mills and Boon on steroids. If you want an easy listen that wont keep you awake at night this is it. Oh and just a tiny bit of day dreaming about being with Mr Grey and his money lol

    "On the downward spiral but I still read it!"

    After the first book, I felt I needed to get the rest of the story - the sex almost got in the way tbh because it was same stuff in different places with different extras!

    After I'd finished it, I couldn't possibly have told you what happened - it is probably the least memorable of all three books.

    I won't comment on the actual language/words - not to my taste - sorry.

    Still glad I listened - sometimes just being able to discuss the current hyped stuff is enough!

    "read all reviews before buying ...."

    This book sounds great but the narrators voice is terrible,really irratating, which you wouldnt pick up on from the sample but as she has to repeat the same awful 'Oh My's' and 'Holy Sxxt's on average every couple of minutes it really goes through you.
    Very dissapointed with the end which completely left me feeling a bit ripped off for the credit i'd wasted. I suppose its so that you will feel compelled to buy the next book but honestly it wasnt good enough to waste more credits.

    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Darker in three words, what would they be?

    best in trilogy


    What did you like best about this story?

    book two really brings the story together.defo best book in trilogy by far.


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

    i have read the books about twenty times. having it read out makes me conect better with ana.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    i listened to it in no time at all.


    Any additional comments?

    really would have prefered the male voices to be read by a man. would conect more with christian this way.

    "Even if you liked the first, you won't enjoy this"
    What was most disappointing about E. L. James’s story?

    The pathetic lead became even more uninteresting and limp in this book, and the attempt at bringing some kind of story line in between badly written and repetitive sex scenes was almost amusing, but not amusing enough to tempt me to continue listening.
