Fifty Shades of Darker by E L James

I finished reading Fifty Shades of Darker which is the second book in the Fifty Shades of Grey series, and I absolutely HATED IT!

I read all 400 and some pages, and she never, ever developed the plot. There seems to be a lot to this guy, Christian Grey, and she never fully developed his character. She definitely did not give me enough to make me want to read the third book. No plot development at all.

After finishing, I had to ask myself "What happened in this book?" and all I can say is that the two main characters got engaged, but she really did not have to use 400 and some pages in order to say that.

The feminist in me was raging as I read about a women who had to fight like hell and manipulate a man in order to be "free!" I wanted to shake Ana and say "Run, run, run..........don't let this man OWN you!"

I know that Toni Morrison is somewhere laughing and saying "E L got you with this one." Yes, she had me going with Fifty Shades of Grey, but she got me with this one.

So, if you do not read this one, you'll be all right. I promise you...

I even highly recommend that you skip it!

My next read is FOXY: My Life in Three Acts by Pam Grier with Andrea Cagan.
