I love this entire Trilogy. I couldn't put these books down. My boyfriend called it lady porn and even through I enjoy the erotic aspects I was more invested in the story line. Read!!!

I could not put the book down, once I started I just kept reading. Took it to work just because I couldn't get enough.

I find it hilarious how much better the reviews are for this book solely because most people with brains stopped reading after the first one. I kept reading because it was free, and because I could read it on a PDF at my work computer. I got paid to read this series, and I still regret it. Just terrible. At least the plot gets a bit more interesting, but still, awful. Sex scenes are boring and repetitive, writing is awful. He's still abusive, she's still naive, and it's still an horrible message to promote to girls everywhere. As long as he's handsome, it's okay if he treats you like crap!

This book series sucks. I dont't understand the hype. I was encouraged to buy these books by a number of friends and I am now considering whether they were truly my friends. The repetition, tiresome sex scenes and lack of any story line has placed these book for me as the worst I've ever read. I will be reading more reviews before I purchase anymore books in the future, this series at least made me learn this lesson.

My journey with the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy continues with this installment Fifty Shades Darker. There really is no subtext is there-- the main character says "Fifty shades" about every 10 pages. It could become a drinking game.

Fifty Shades Darker by E. L. James picks up where the first one left off. Ana has decided after the climax (no pun intended) of the last book, that Christian is too dark, twisted and obsessed for her, and so she decides to leave him. I only wonder why it took her so long. Likely the strongest part of this book is that we finally get introduced to several new characters, all who are way more interesting than Christian and Ana. There's the enigmatic Mrs. Robinson, and an ex-sub Leila, and the delightful and much sexier Ethan, brother of best friend Kate.

I'll admit, I was so tired of the sex scenes from the first one, I felt that I had seen enough to skip over the ones in this book. I have no problem with sex scenes, but it was almost as if James used the cut and paste feature of Word. Ana has become a much whinier character (and to be fair, so does the Twilight's Bella) and there is an attempt to make Christian less despicable as a character. The ploy is to introduce another character even worse than Christian. I almost laughed because this move was so transparent.

You may ask, why did this book earn three stars in that case. Like I said above, the new characters were interesting, and I want to know where James is going with them. Sadly, I'm pretty sure that since we didn't see Ethan until more than halfway through this book, there is no chance for an Ana/Ethan pairing. That said, the likely girl that will end up with Ethan is much more stable and honestly, much better than Ana. And the one other thing that elevated this book from 2 star status was the deliciously satisfying and inevitable confrontation between Mrs. Robinson and Ana. The ending was trite and easily deduced from previous hints.

This all said, I'll be reading the third book anyway, because regardless of all of its flaws, it is some of the most addictive fanfic I've seen. But I'll return it as soon as it's done.

I read the first book within 48 hours...Couldn't put it down I was so engrossed. I was so looking forward to dive into the 2nd and get some answers on Christians haunting past, but I am over half way thru and it's lacking. There's not alot of content and every time Ana and Christian have a serious moment it's pushed aside for yet another intimate moment. I'm tired of reading the intimate moments over and over again. I will finish reading the book with hopes of some additional content and answers to why Christian is the way he is. To sum it up, this book as lost that "I can't wait to get home and read another chapter" luster. Disappointing, I hope to read a review of what's to come in the third book so I don't have to read it as well.
Also I do not like that I am unable to share this ebook with other kindle users. (I use the kindle cloud app on my iPad 2, iPhone and PC.) I believe all books should be share-able within a certain means, just as a paper copy is. I paid the same price!!

The Plot was okay, however, I found the "how to sex manual" aspects boring and felt it added nothing to the story.

I feel dumber for reading this. Synopsis - Insecure rich ubcontrolling Dbag asks his battered girlfriend of a few weeks to get married. Moron battered girl debates it most of the book while having mind blowing sex. I think she repeated "can I ask you a question no let than 100 times" then says yes. I hated them both by the end.

I actually could not get past page 260 in the first book so reading the series was a joke. I struggled with the first book and found it trite and lacking in any merit. Thus, I gave up trying to read it even though it was so popular and "recommended". Unreal story line along with character development and times/places.

I enjoyed reading this book. I couldn't put it down and I finished reading it in two days. Fifty Shades Darker was definitely worth purchasing. It kept me on edge through the entire book. I found myself wanting to know more . Great book for anybody who likes romantic drama, but you must read Fifty Shades of Grey first.
