Book Review: Fifty Shades Darker by EL James

With Fifty Shades of Grey  ending with Anastasia and Christian's break-up, I was curious as to what happens next. I mean, there were two more books of the trilogy left!


With much anticipation, I began the book, to be only disappointed. Yes, easy read, simple language, blah blah, but is that all there was to be for 500 pages? Of course, I wasn't expecting a lot, to tell you the truth, but this was way less than expected. While part 1, still indicated a story, this was an out-and-out Mills&Boon from page 1 to the last.

After the break-up, Anastasia tried to pick up her life and joined her new job but she misses Christian a lot. No, she misses sex with Christian a lot. The get back together right at the beginning of the book and then we have the usual drama of jealous ex-girlfriend (submissive in Christian's case) and a lecherous boss who tried to get inside Anastasia's skirt. 

The ex-girlfriend(s) try to kill/harass Anastasia, while Christian has a close shave with life, thanks to Anastasia's ex-boss who had got fired because of Christian. Nevertheless, things settle down. The book ends with the ex-boss conspiring revenge against Christain and Anastasia with a promise that they will be married in the last week.

Personally, I found it bland, still I read it. I am a book-geek, I read everything. You take your call! :-)

My rating: 3/5

  6. Fifty Shades movies are really sexiest movie in Hollywood. Christian and Anna became the hottest couple of the decay. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan finally once again come with their third and last trilogy story Fifty Shades Freed. As we all know movie is last part than it should be more awesome and sexiest than last movies named Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker. I am waiting to watch Fifty Shades Freed online. This new year is really gonna fantastic
