Format: Paperback
I have read the whole trilogy and love the trajectory of growing intimacy between the main characters. Yes the books could have done with a careful edit but the conversations, sex scenes and how the relationship develops are written really well. In fact 50 Shades Darker is better written. EL James herself says she gets better as she goes on. I continued to care about the characters. Christian and Ana were so bereft at the split in the relationship and learnt a lot from it and are both determined to do whatever they have to do to make the relationship work. They both strive for honesty and clarity. Ana must voice her inner thoughts and even though this often causes tension and strife, it is best in the long run. Ana challenges herself too- could Christian love her if she didn't remind him of the kind of woman he wanted to be sadistic towards? Christian's therapist John Flynn picks up on this and I would have liked to see more of her inner development in this regard. The sex scenes continue to be innovative and intimate. The billiard table scene with its lead up of engaging banter between Christian and Ana is thrilling and must be in my top three of sexy scenarios in the trilogy and of anything I have read elsewhere. Brilliant book 2 and you have to read the trilogy to get the overall picture of how more truth between two people leads to greater intimacy and trust.

The second book in the Fifty Shades series, in my opinion is not quite as good as the first.

I still enjoyed it and I'm still looking forward to reading the third one but I just felt that it was missing a little something. And I also became a little exasperated with the two main characters.

What I did like about this book was the extra characters and storylines that are brought into play. The first book was very much about Christian and Ana getting to know each other and so it generally just focused on the two of them. And although the story in Fifty Shades Darker is also focused on Christian and Ana, there are other storylines and characters introduced too. Such as the evil `Mrs Robinson', and Ana's rather inappropriate boss. And it was great to have more chapters with Christian's family in them.

I think these extra side plots gave some great dimension to Ana and Christian's already hectic relationship.

Another compliment I have for this book is the character development of Christian and Ana. By the end, they are hardly recognisable as the same two characters we were introduced to at the beginning of book one. The author has done a great job of letting them develop and grow and compromise with each other and portrays a very realistic story of two very different people falling in love gradually. This was so refreshing.

Therefore, I am a little sad that I didn't love this book as much as I wanted to. My problem was mainly the exhausting ups and downs of the relationship. I understand these arguments and `make ups' had to happen for Ana and Christian to be able to move forward but, it just happened so often! Like, every day there was a new drama that would cause them to fall out dramatically... and then make up `dramatically'.

Childish, immature, pathetic, sick (what is E L James' obsession with fingers in orifices!) Apparently these are her fantasies conjured up in her mid-life crisis! I hope the world opens it's eyes and a backlash against these ridiculous books gathers pace. They are completely ridiculous, but also with a nasty side to them that leaves a very bad taste in the mouth!!

As the title suggests, the trilogy takes a darker turn in this book. The story picks up from where it ended in book 1. Anna starts her new life and new job in Seattle after leaving Christian. However, destiny brought them back together and it's time for both Christian and Anna to face Christian's dark past.
It was a fantastic read and I could not put it down. Unlike the first book, it's packed with action, drama and crime thriller elements, and overall it was like a rollercoaster ride. Off course, there are some steamy sex scenes-but I have to admit some of it gets a bit repetitive. However, in my opinion, the main theme of this book is really about Christian's past and what made him the way he is now. We also get to see how Anna and Christian evolve beyond the sub-dom relationship as in previous book. Anna has definitely changed Christian's life. Seeing Christian coming out from his shell and led to the light by Anna is so beautiful.
The end of this book also gives us some clue as to what's going to happen in the next book. There will definitely be happy ever after but it seems there are some obstacles that they have to come across first!!

I read the first book, and it was ok in it's limited way. Quite readable.

Then I started on this second book and it soon becomes clear than 90% of this book is a rehash of the first book. All the same phrases, all the same sex scenes. It just becomes boring.

Now, I like sex as much as the next red blooded person but you do find yourself skipping over the sex scenes in this second book, mainly because they are exactly the same as the first book.

Someone else wrote in a review that the author should buy herself a thesaurus, and I would agree. The same words and phrases are used time and time again. Perhaps it's the fault of the editor not to have picked up on this, but it does become annoying and, yes, BORING!
