Bookworm: Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James

Here we are again. Another Fifty Shades book complete, in a matter of days/under a week.

This second offering of the trilogy had me rather more surprised however. The smut and kinky goings on were still highly featured, but this time there was more of a storyline apparent. In fact at times I felt close to tears.

I don't want to delve into too much detail as I don't want to spoil the reading experience for those who haven't indulged in Mr Grey and his wicked ways just yet.

However, rather than just focussing on their amazing sex life, this story takes time to explore Christian's character in more detail - what makes him like what he does and what a horrific childhood he suffered.

Of course it's important to remember this is just an enjoyable piece of trashy fiction, but instead of just dirty talk, this time round you feel you're reading a rather dark piece of chick lit at times.

Good bits
More of a storyline this time round
Just as addictive, you want to read on and on

Not so great
At times the events are a little hard to believe/far-fetched
You still need to hide those pages on the train!

I finished the second instalment on my journey home and I admit I was pleased I'd downloaded all three, so the next one is ready and waiting. What am I going to do when I finish book three?

Book two ended with a hint at a more sinister turn of events so I'm keen to get started...
