The addition of conflicts (beyond the contrived interpersonal crap between Ana and Grey) was a pleasant surprise. The timeline in this book feels horribly *off* however. It seems to take place over the course of two weeks, yet more happens in that time than could be reasonably expected to happen in six months; for example, Christian bitching out Ana repeatedly about using her Blackberry to email him and then - what? two days? - later Christian's fears regarding her emails are realized. I work IT and have access to around 700 individuals' email accounts and I think I've only ever found reason to go into any of them three times in four years.

As to the sex, it was far more copious than in the previous book, but I still don't see any real kink. It's all *hinted* at, everything Christian ideally would like from Ana, but so far I've not seen anything that would so much as warrant a "trigger" tag in a fanfiction forum. I don't get why this is any more lurid than typical Harlequin smut.

*shrugs* People are weird. ( )

This book was my favorite out of the series so far. Wonderful character growth. ( )

Not terrible, but by the end you're going to want to 'just get it over with'. ( )

I’m reading this series to see what all the hype is about. This book, which is the 2nd of the series, is more about the relationship emotionally. It wasn’t bad but I was getting tired of the insecurities of both Christian and Ana. They are saying the same exact thing to each other but not believing it. Also, all the smirking. I was getting ready to count how many times that word was used.

I’ve read a few reviews where people say you can’t change someone and Christian can’t change in 5 weeks. I disagree. Ana isn’t forcing him to change, he is making the choice to change because he knows if he doesn’t he will lose her and losing Ana is more important than his playroom. Just like when people go into therapy, they hope therapy changes them and for a lot of people it does. Ana is kind of like his therapy. ( )

Love how this book plays out, and basically starts right where the first one ended. Both characters do a lot of growing in this book, still have lots of issues, but they get through them together, and helps them mature.

I love the email messages between Ana and Christian, they made me laugh, especially the signatures. ( )

Book description
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.
