Fifty Shades Darker is the second part of Fifty Shades trilogy and continues from where Fifty Shades of Grey ends. While Fifty Shades of Grey has been made famous due to movie, not a lot of people know about Fifty Shades Darker. However this should change next year, when the movie based on it releases.
Fifty Shades Darker in essence marks a shift from the initial attraction to the love that blossoms rapidly between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. And how the couple tries to deal with the rapidly changing relationship, both as individuals and as a couple.
While the witty email exchange (which I loved the most in Fifty Shades of Grey) continues between the love birds, so does the “kinky fuckery”, in fact it is a lot more in Fifty Shades Darker than it was in part 1! And even though there is transition from act of sex to something more intimate and romantic, things don’t mellow down, even though at times it seems they will!
I guess that is what makes Fifty Shades Darker a bit more interesting than Fifty Shades of Grey, makes it a lot more fun to read.
Of course the “inner goddess” of Ana is always a treat to read about, and one cannot help but picture her doing things, she is mentioned as doing by the character, and thus bringing a smile to your face each time she is mentioned in the story and it is something that was sorely missing in the movie adaptation of the first book and I guess it would also be missing in the second part.
That apart, story also goes to show, no matter how “fucked up” a guy thinks he is, a woman can still come in and turn his life completely upside down, for better or for worse, well that might be open to interpretation, but I would like to believe, for better.
Overall Fifty Shades Darker is an interesting read and a must read, if you have already read/watched Fifty Shades of Grey.
