Overview Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and
demanding Fifty Shades. While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront her anger and envy of the women who came before her and make the most important decision of her life. Erotic, sparkling and suspenseful, Fifty Shades Darker is the irresistibly addictive second part of the Fifty Shades trilogy.
Reviews I really wish I could manually add a 6th star to Goodreads for this book. I never would have believed it was possible, but Fifty Shades Darker is even better than Fifty Shades of Grey. Hard to believe, but true. Reading this book reminded me of a quote that I love by Alan Cohen, “Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation.” Reading Fifty Shades Darker is like witnessing metamorphosis in action.
What I love the most about this book is the way the events and characters change and develop. I love that Christian Grey transforms from utterly immovable to flexible. Every negative emotion he feels eventually becomes something positive, or at least something he can learn and grow from. He learns the delicate balance between give and take. He learns to open his heart and to accept love—and he learns to give it as well. Everything cold becomes warm, and everything hot—well that’s about the only thing that stays the same, still hot.
Ana and Christian are so contradictory and conflicting, and yet complement each other so well. Each trial, every obstacle, every hardship the two experiences are overcome and ultimately strengthen the relationship. This is truly one of the most amazing love stories I’ve read.
I would like to add one more thing regarding a popular misconception about this book. I’ve read a lot of comments from readers saying it is too far out of their comfort zone because of the BDSM elements. I would like to address this because I don’t think readers should shy away from it for that reason. EL James has a way of writing that brings out the heat in a love scene (I literally get butterflies sometimes while reading), but in my opinion she does it in a very tasteful way. I’ve read other BDSM novels and I think these books should really be classified as mild erotica, which contain some MILD elements of BDSM.
This story has a well defined plot with well developed, in depth characters. The romance is both sweet (I love the emails between the characters) and steamy, and to me the sex scenes do not feel gratuitous. It really is just an amazing and beautiful love story, and I think the BDSM elements are an integral element the plot in this novel. Astounishing, heartfelt addicting series.
I can’t even form the words to express how I felt about this novel. It’s just downright Alluring.The Hero himself is just powerful and so full of a dark tortured soul.He captivates me,on so many different levels. Without him this novel wouldn’t have been the same.
Every part of me wants to scream “BEST BOOK EVER” although I say that about many books I love.My only exception on this book is, That It “IS”. I’ve read so many BDSM novels and besides Megan Hart’s novels, no one can touch EL James! What a remarkable writer. She sure knows how to show us readers you can have your cake and eat it too.
For every positive thought,Christian Grey has,Anastasia Steele was there to bring him back to reality and prove with every powerful gene in her body to show this man."There is such thing as love,and caring” . Don’t get me wrong,I found the Heroine painfully annoying at times.She just couldn’t leave well enough alone.Ana t asked so many questions,that lead her and Christian to arguing and fighting all the time. Which was,okay a few times,just because I loved Mr.Grey’s sentiment of his “Twitching Palm”. It’s very Hot and Erotic what the man can do with his hand *blushing* Lolz! My most favorite parts to the story that I looked forward to the most were, their e-mails.They had me giggling like a schoolgirl from my younger years.It was just too cute,from there bickering, bantering to their little inside jokes.Just ADORABLE!
The previous novel left off with a gut wrenching cliffhanger,and I just thought,"how is there a second novel? What could possibly re-kindle their relationship?” I honestly thought their was no turning back with these two. I was so wrong. I enjoyed this novel even more then I did the first one. Christians
secrets will leave your mind reeling with all sorts of thoughts. The man has my heart at hello. I love his undying,unconditional love he has for Ana.My heart is still sore,I just can’t stop thinking about,”what’s gonna happen next? and If Christian can really,no longer look at Ana as his Submissive,could this really work?” I sure do hope so,because there is no one else that can fill Grey’s shoes or Ana’s in the way they can complete one another. I still have my doubts.So I’m hoping for the best.This novel also ended with a cliffhanger. I can hardly wait to read how everything plays out from here.
BTW! I didn’t mention how HOT this series is did I? Well that’s because,no matter how many sex scenes,and my most favorite, SPANKINGS! LOL! Can’t overbear the main story plot of this novel.For the first time ever,I enjoyed a series and put all sexual mind thoughts aside.Which is a first for me =P Oh would you look at that,I have a first too! Ahahahaha..... All in all the series is a must-read for all BDSM Lovers out there who like their side of kink and love story too! Oh, Christian, you make MY inner goddess swoon!
There is so much to love about Fifty Shades Darker. Fifty Shades Darker is a much more comfortable read than the first book, Fifty Shades of Grey. This book focuses more upon the evolution of Christian’s and Ana’s relationship.
And boy, does it evolve. After a short but miserable separation, Christian and Ana realize that they need each other. In the previous book, Christian was very much in control of the relationship. In this book, the tables are turned and Ana is now in control. Christian senses that Ana needs a more conventional relationship and attempts to provide it for her in his own special way.
What makes this book different from others in this genre is that there is an actual story surrounding the main characters. The characters are multi-layered. Christian’s difficult childhood is slowly revealed to the reader, resulting in an understanding of his problems. Ana becomes more self-assured in this book, perhaps due to maturity and experience, yet she still has niggling thoughts as to whether she will be able to fulfill all of Christian’s needs. Ana also becomes more daring and assertive and she stands up to threats to her relationship with Christian.
I loved the dialogue and banter between these two characters, especially the emails where they used SHOUTY CAPITALS. It is interesting to note that Ana’s email communications with Christian were uninhibited. The emails allowed her to say exactly what was on her mind. Ana’s inner dialogues with her inner goddess and her conscious were entertaining as well. I found that Ana and Christian were much more playful in this book.
I don’t know how she does it, but E.L. James can make the most ordinary scenes sizzle off the page. Imagine what she does with the sexy scenes…so hot! I’ll never look at a pool table the same way again without imagining Fifty….and elevators, pianos, and, well, you get it, right?
I’ve been a fan for quite a while and I am so happy that there will be one more book in this series. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for E.L. James. The second book in the Fifty Shades trilogy drew me in and kept me captivated just as well as the first. James is such a great storyteller; she weaves a tale that sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.
The story picks up right where the first book left off. Christian and Ana have been apart for a few days, and both are miserable. I hated (and loved) watching them struggle so much to be together and stay together. There are so many layers to their relationship, it was heart wrenching to watch them try to pick through them all. Where the first book focused on the more playful side of their relationship, Fifty Shades Darker focused more on them getting to know each other and struggling to work out their differences, mainly Christian's overwhelming need to control and Ana's struggle to keep her independence.
I love Christian and Ana so much. They are my new favorite couple. Their relationship is undoubtably flawed, but maybe that's why it's so irresistible. In Fifty Shades Darker, Ana struggles to handle her overwhelming feelings for Christian while trying to learn more about his past and why he is the way he is, helping him as he struggles to come to term with emotions and feelings he's always been able to control by simply burying before.
There is so much going on between Ana and Christian. There is so much more than just their steamy, hot sex. The romance weaved through the story is amazing. You can see how much Christian loves Ana even through his completely messed up mind. I loved in this book we got to see so much more of Christian than just his controlling, overbearing self. We got to see more of his romantic, boyish side, and I absolutely fell in love with him (all over again). Just like the first book, I loved the witty back and forth batter between Ana and Christian. Their conversations and emails flow so easily and are fun to read.
My only real complaint (as with the first book) was that I did get tired of hearing how not good enough Ana thought she was. Christian had problems and was understandably messed up, but Ana was just annoying with her repetitive thoughts of self-worthlessness and doubt.
These books are very well written. The whole story flows easily and is easy to read. There is so much emotion to the story, you feel like you're on a rollercoaster, and the author does a great job bringing that to the pages through the description of the character's facial expressions and body language. *sigh* another emotional roller coaster from E.L. James..and what a ride. Christian is back in all his "glory" and Ana comes back stronger than ever. In part two we see their relationship grow as they get to know each other. They have to handle adversity, jealous women, and the past.
The book as left me in an emotional knot. I am loving it so much. The characters feel like people I know. Ana matures so much in this book and Christian finds who he truly is..the connection with these two is unbelievable. For a relationship based book, the plot moves quickly and adds suspense into the mix. I couldn't put it down I was so wrapped up the world of Fifty Shades. To see Christian's personality emerge in his emails was a foreshadow as to he will become. Humour, loving and caring. It is hard to believe these are the same characters from the first book. Once again sex is a strong thread in the book but it shows the growth in both characters since the first book. The scenes are HAWT!!! I admit to squirming in my chair a couple of times:)..I am truly caught in E.L. James's spell.
Wish I could give more than 5 stars...♠♠♠♠♠♠..amazing book, a treat to read. I know I will be reading this series over and over...I can't wait for the last book....are we there yet? *said in a child's voice while jumping up and down in the back seat of the car*
Jan 23 2012: Reread: I'm as awestruck with this book even the second time around. My stomach in my throat for Ana during some of her fights...and when Charlie Tango went down I had a lump in my throat the size of Seattle. I adored the scene where Ana let Elena have it. The new confident adult Ana has arrived! I have to say my favorite scene in this book is the one where Christian afraid Ana was going to leave him again, hold his head..then falls to his knees in a submissive pose. I had tears running down my face during this..and a rock in my chest. For some reason this resonated more in the second read then it did in the first. I'm sure this is not the only reread this book will have. Once again I genuflect to Ms James as I am so in awe of her talent.
5++++++ stars still:)...Now go...buy it...Start with Fifty Shades of Grey and don't put the books down until you are finished Fifty Shades Darker...and look its January ...I"m on to Fifty Shades Freed!!! LOVED IT!!! And yes I am using SHOUTY CAPITALS because I truly did loved the hell out of it. Can't remember the last time I enjoyed a series this much. Sooo much happened during the course of book two. I can't wait to start book three.
I was going to wait until I finished "Freed" to thanks E L James for writing this series. Doesn't matter to me that it was inspired by Twilight. So what? I've read alot of comments and reviews that dismiss the series solely on that fact. She liked Twilight and it gave her a wonderful idea for a series of her own. I think that's great.
One more thing. This is not a series about BDSM at all. It's about two people finding each other and falling madly in love. I had very mixed feelings about Fifty Shades of Grey, so many that in the end I didn't even think I could rate it. I did not have the same problem with Fifty Shades Darker. This book was very good. The character development, especially with Christian, was touching and I was so glad that we get a fuller picture of what
makes him the way he is, or was. There is still some of the BDSM "kinky fuckery", that is so prevalent in the first book, but it's significantly toned down in this one (don't worry though, there is still TONS of regular(ish) sex in there). I love the fact that Christian makes such a tremendous effort to control and repress his sexual sadism for Ana's sake and he really works to become more to her and have a "normal" relationship. I found myself with a huge grin on my face through most of the book and the emails back and forth between Ana and Christian usually made me giggle.
I do have to agree with the people who have said this series seems like Twilight fan fic. There are just too many similarities between the two stories for me to not mention it. Every time Ana says "Holy cow!" I found my self thinking of Bella's "Holy Crow!" Although, I'm very grateful that we didn't have to sit through an entire book of depressed maudlin BS that was so prevalent in New Moon. But I digress...
I'm going to take everyone's advice and not read the 3rd installment of the Fifty Shades series and accept the happy ending we find here. The story picks up exactly where the first book in the series ended, with Anastasia trying to live with her decision to leave Christian. She's inconsolable, even though she was the one who walked away and she can't eat or sleep well. It isn't long before Christian re-enters her life and they decide to resume their relationship, with Anastasia asserting herself more and Christian trying to come to terms with being in a different kind of relationship for the first time in his life.
The email communications between these two are some of the high points of this story. Their banter and cleverness provide humor as well as forming the strength of their communication with each other. Ana feels more empowered to express herself with Christian in these exchanges and he shows another, less controlling side of himself. People from Christian's past provide some tense moments for the two of them and threaten their reunion. Also, Ana's new boss, James, proves to be another challenge. As they explore each other in trying to maintain their fragile relationship, they are also having their own self discoveries.
I continue to be mesmerized by this couple. This is more than an erotic tale, even though there's plenty of that and I've gotten an education! There's something raw
and honest about the two of them, an innocence that they shouldn't have but do. The writing is so well done, even if there's some unnecessary repetition undoubtly because of the use of a first-person narrative. It's not enough, though, to detract from the story or diminish my attention or interest.
The third and final book in this series is beckoning and I cannot resist. This is a most interesting story and I'm reluctant to see it end.
