Fifty Shades Darker is the second novel that follows the all popular Fifty Shades of Grey. From my raw encounter I would agree that FSD is set at a different level.
While I think a lot of woman girded their loins for this second novel – and I’m sure many couldn’t resist discovering what this – a follow up novel could deliver since Ana left Christian after a serious beating in the first, this novel actually proved to have an intriguing storyline – irrespective of the sex.
I found that FSD wasn’t as erotic as FSOG instead it became sensual – loving even beautiful.
I found myself absorbed in discovering Christians past and relieved at finding reasons for his behaviour. While there was an understanding as to why people compared this storyline to twilight it wasn’t overbearing – obvious. I think the key to the comparison is mostly the pace of the story and the characteristics within Christian which is similar to that of Edward.
While the novel has a flowing line between relief, heartache, progress, humour and suspense I confess that it was good enough for me to want to read Fifty Shades Freed.
I still had issues with some of the writing – the holy cow, my fifty, crap, fuck repeats was still around but for most I enjoyed the writers out right blatant response. I found it to be very womanly – even though I wanted to kill the constant referral to her inner goddess.
I can see why woman find the story intriguing and I was happy to find that Ana grew a pear and took the lead.

I hate to admit it but Fifty Shades got me so hooked that I find myself falling in love with Christian. Fifty Shades Darker is as good as the first book. Read full review
