Book Review: Fifty Shades Darker by E. L. James - Reviewed by CloggieA (05 Nov 2012)
Fifty Shades Darker is the second book in the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James. A mere five days after she leaves Christian Grey because she is convinced she cannot be the woman he needs, his submissive, Anastasia Steele takes him back into her life. He can’t live without her and vows he will curb his need to control her, will demand none of what he first wanted her for. So, as Ana enjoys/endures the life of the obscenely rich with all its trappings, she learns a little more about her damaged man, and hopes she can be the one to heal him. But there are flies in the ointment: Mrs Robinson, hovering in the background; Leila, an ex-sub, who is stalking Ana; and Ana’s new boss, Jack, who seems to want more than he has a right to. As with the first volume, this is painfully slow moving (half the book to cover 4 days), almost a reading endurance test, although if you skip the sex (gratuitous, clichéd, repetitive and not at all stimulating), it is a bit quicker read. There’s actually a gun at one point to liven things up…..a possible helicopter crash, a visit to the psychiatrist, a loud confrontation with Mrs Robinson at the end and the hint of the threat that will probably take up the whole next volume: another 500 pages of Ana’s subconscious and inner goddess (groan)…… I am not sure why these books are so popular: I have read better romance and erotica in Mills & Boon, but I think these books have been hyped up to tipping point.
E L James is a former 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 career. She finally plucked up the courage to put pen to paper with her first novel Fifity Shades of Grey.
