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?

Insight to a troubled Christian

I'm really enjoying the Grey series more than the Fifty series. The key character in this storyline is a broken man with a broken soul and his path back to redemption through his growing relationship with Ana.
I'm throughly enjoying the insight into Christian's mind, his anxieties and his fears and his struggle with how to combat and defeat his demons.
My heart swelled when he laid it all out to Ana at Escala and bared his darkest fears to her. He really is a small child trapped in the body of a grown man.
I'm thoroughly looking forward to the final chapter in Christians story.
If like me, you want to follow Christian's story rather than Ana's, you will enjoy this book!

Everything's perfect except

It's my first time listening to an audiobook and I was wondering if Anna's voice could actually be replaced with an actual girl's voice because while I was listening this whole time, whenever Anna's talking, it feels like Christian is talking to a man and it's so hilarious to me. Nothing wrong with it, just made some intense scene a little funnier than intended. Overall, the storyline is great. Highly recommended!

?????

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

I enjoyed this

I know there has been so much written about this series of books but I have to say that I enjoyed this version from Christians perspective. It gives you a totally different angle on the story and the way he thinks. Brilliant narrations too.

Zachary Webber is fantastic as Christian

What made the experience of listening to Darker the most enjoyable?

I loved hearing the story from Christians side and the added extra scenes you don't get from the first book

What did you like best about this story?

just loved having Christians side loved hearing what he was thinking all the way through. Also the crash was great to hear what happened and how they got back. Also at the end when Christians mother finds out about him and Mrs Robinson and the conversation we didn't get to hear when Anna left the room.

Which character – as performed by Zachary Webber – was your favourite?

Christian all the way he just became Christian

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

I would of loved to but not possible had to slow down and get some housework done between listening.

Any additional comments?

I so hope they do Freed as well I so need to listen to the end of the story.
