FIRST: I'd like to point out that the only reason I read this book is because I hate not-finishing series I start.The joy I felt after finishing this book was TOO IMMENSE.I liked the first book, because I never really read anything like it before; but after Darker, this just seems a bit too... tedious, and repetitive. It's like the writer was on aphrodisiacs while writing this or something. The last book was the most like Twilight, I can't even--... You know what, Just forget it. Because I'm a Turtle, that's why. If you're looking for a book to read, I'd say Fifty Shades of Grey is a good way to murder time savagely, the idea's pretty fresh so the first book is by far the best of the trilogy. The rest is just repetitive and tedious. But hey, that's just my opinion; don't let it stop you from reading what you want.
