Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker - E.L. James The authorE L James is a TV executive, wife and mother-of-two based in West London. Since early childhood she dreamed of writing stories that readers would fall in love with, but put those dreams on hold to focus on her family and her career. She finally plucked up the courage to put pen to paper with her first novel, Fifty Shades of Grey. E L James is currently working on a new love story... For more information visit http://www.eljamesauthor.comThe synopsisDaunted 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. The reviewYes I was curious enough to continue to the second book and yes I did read it within 24 hours. That was not because the story was so enthralling but because the writing style is so simple that you can get trough pages easily. But yes I am going to write it down this book is better than the first.Characters get a bit more development and most important a bit more personality but this attention is mostly centered for Anastasia and Christian. There are no important new characters introduced though some get a bit of a bigger part in this book. Though the sex is still to important and the story less so the scale is more in balance already in this book. The author continued the private jokes emails too. One should pay attention to those. Maybe the author can write a book with just email exchanges between two people (no need for more characters and I could use my imagination)There is no use though reading this one without struggling yourself trough the first one.
