This review is from: Fifty Shades Darker (Paperback)Like a previous reviewer I found this novel darker but unremarkable. I loved Fifty Shades of Grey, I loved Ana and how she worked out her conflicts, Christian was charismatic and leapt of the pages. In this novel I found it was just an elongation of the story, nothing refreshing or remarkable. Christian comes across as controlling and stalkerish and Ana has developed a sense of pride that was annoying. Too many repetitious statements and remarks about eating food, about how women fawn and how Ana is is choice. The characters lost something of their original state that I loved. The concept of Fifty Shades of Grey was exciting, this is more of s sex romp and it lost the originality of the first book which I loved so much. I loved Ana when she was her own woman and there was fire between her and Christian, she is too compliant in this. I wanted more and I didn't get it. I hope the third installment recaptures the individuality of the original, this is too Mills and Boon.

Thanks for that comment, I have bought this book after reading the first and will pass it on to a friend. I cannot be bothered reading through pages of BDSM.

I agree about the repetitive statements, if I have to read 'oh my' once more I think I'll scream. Plus, Christian is getting on my nerves aswell now going on about how great Ana is. I wouldve ended it with him because he was overbearing not because of his play room!!

I thought Cristian was so said Anna "So handsome that all the women were after him"
in her eyes probable.
Christian was a dangerous sex maniac. He had had in the past 15 subordinate who he also had sex with them.
