The first book was OK, - just. However the second book was so repetitive it was boring. After reading accounts of their 'lovemaking' several times a day with little variation I Just thought "oh not again"!! I just wanted to have a STORY! how on earth can anyone find this interesting or exciting? I won't bother with the third, 2 is well enough!

Well, what can I say! I was one of those who bought into this hype. I read the first book, and found it informative (not my cuppa, but each to their own); I was more interested in the romantic element of the plot. I must admit, the first book left me very curious as to whether they would be together in the subsequent books. (SPOILER ALERT) Suffice to say that after finding out that Christian does love her and wants to marry her, that was it for me! For me, that is the end of a love story!

There isn't enough substance in the plot to keep me interested after that. As for character development - it is quite unrealistic. I supposed I was looking for a simple love story a la Steele or Collins, but really, I should have just bought Steele or Collins, at least there is more intrigue, the language used is more varied, unlike EL James' ubiquitous 'Oh my'. It is extremely irritating!

This book, for me, fails at quite a few levels that a good book should be at. First, the plot is thin, as it doesn't really develop in this book. It goes around in circles. Second, I don't care about the characters. Third, the language used is quite juvenile, almost insulting the ability of its readers. Lastly, if it trying to explain BDSM, it probably introduced it in the first book as this book offers nothing new. You are better off 'googling' it.

I was too hasty in buying the last book as well. I find myself not able to pick it up. Alas, I don't think I will read it. This should not have been a trilogy. It should have ended at book one.

I've wasted my money - don't waste yours! Go and read The Hunger Games - much more entertaining!The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set

I loved Fifty Shades of Grey, despite what everyone said about the repetitious nature of the prose and the parlous dialogue. All of which was true. The story however, was fresh and interesting and sexy enough to keep me intrigued. I liked the fact that Christian and Ana's relationship was quite complex, and psychologically reasonably interesting. I finished the book and immediately bought the two sequels because I really wanted to know how Christian and Ana's relationship played out.

I wish now that I hadn't. The sex is slightly less vanilla in this book, but that is all that has changed, and what was intriguing has now become dull and predictable.

I like BDSM.
Not into hurting people I care for, but I do like the effort to make sex a mental activity rather than a purely physical one.

I don't like 50 Shades Darker. it made me feel angry.
Angry that 5 days after dumping the distinctly uncharismatic Mr Grey she lets him boss her around again.
"Eat Ana"....so she eats. Why doesn't she does tell the arrogant swine to leave her alone?

Commands and control can play a role in consensual BDSM, but when you are only meeting for lunch it's just plain rude. And although his power and riches might seem exciting, can you imagine having his children? He would be too busy empire building to bother with them, and if they did anything wrong he would probably crucify them.

I know doms who are lovely and treat their subs with respect. Ms James's so-called hero should really be behind bars as a menace to society. The book is once again badly written, badly thought out, with a string of highly annoying repetitions. With a dialogue which is so unrealistic as to be laughable.

I forgave all that in 50 Shades because it introduced BDSM to a wider audience, and hopefully refreshed a few wavering relationships. But once was enough. This book is illiterate and does great disservice to the kinky community.

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!

OK I confess ... I read 50 Shades of Grey and thought it was pretty poor so quite WHY I bought this book I'm not sure (you know how it is - supermarket shopping, sun shining, wanted a light 'garden' read).

The sex scenes are amongst the least erotic I've ever read - Not only was there no 'muscle clenching south of my navel' going on (my libido was busy running as fast as it could in the opposite direction)I found myself being more interested in seeing if there was a page without at least one of the following phrases: 'Oh My', 'Holy Crap', 'Oh', 'Inner Goddess', 'Subconcious', 'Foil Packet' and 'Shattered (there isn't).

The characterisation is two dimensional and cliched, the plot is as diaphanous as one of Ana's (designer obviously) nightgowns, the language is repetitive, un-realistic and irritating and the writing is beyond poor.

I've never read the Twilight series - Oh My, how I wish I could say the same of the 50 Shades books.
