Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James Review
Summary from Goodreads:
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 the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.
I sure get tired of saying how much I enjoyed a book but enjoyed it I did. I did think the very end was a little weird changing the genre of the story in a sense. I shall see what happens in book 3.
I liked seeing how the relationship changed between Ana and Christian. Amazingly, and so like real life ;), they learn the art of compromise and he begins to heal and she begins to grow as a person. I do find it distrubing that I can really relate to this relationship. It has helped me see it in a different and come to terms a few things.
Any book that can make you think about your own life, without intending to, I think is worth a read. Of course (and I certainly hope not), not everyone can relate and could be offended or put off by the story but oh well. All books are not for everyone!
