Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades, Book 2) by E. L. James

Surprisingly this second installment is better than the first. The writing hasn't improved much but there is a bit (tiny bit) more depth to the storyline and more character development.

You get more background information on, Christian and he becomes a slightly more sympathetic character but other than the sex and need to "save" one another, I don't get why these character's are together.

The sex is hot but it's basically the same stuff and if, Ana says 'down there or my sex' one more time, I just might scream. I'd rather she just called what it is, her vagina. Oh and the whole referring to her inner goddess thing is worse than ever -- she refers to it not once, not twice but 50 times! Just kidding, I really don't know if it was 50 times or more because it felt like it was done every other page.

The story is predictable, repetitive and cliched. Will, I read the last book? Sadly, yes, however it will be a while before I read it, it took me nearly one week to finish this book and that is a lot of time for me!

I can say that, I am more interested in the, Christian's character and I think it would be interesting to have a book about just him. About how he grew up and got to be the way he is -- and not just sexually. His ability to be successful despite his initial upbringing is the most interesting part of this entire trilogy.

Anyway --- I don't understand why these books are so popular or why I am reading them for that matter
I suspect I just became a victim of peer pressure,

Grade: C
