Series: Fifty Shades of Grey
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY: When college student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly Ana realizes she wants this man, and Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian’s secrets and explores her own desires.
FIFTY SHADES DARKER: Daunted by Christian’s dark secrets and singular tastes, Ana has broken off their relationship to start a new career. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and while Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Ana is forced to make the most important decision of her life.
FIFTY SHADES FREED: Now, Ana and Christian have it all—love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to turn Ana’s deepest fears into reality.
My rating: ♥ ♥ ♥
First I want to warn you young people (yes, you kids and young adults, below 18) that this book is certainly not for you. So, don’t even think about reading this book or plan to buy it because I will assure you, you won’t like it. And don’t continue reading this review please!
Okay. My inner goddess is kinda pissed here. lol I just want to defend my three hearts there. I was actually about to rate it two but I’ll be dishonest because I did like the book in a weird kind of way. I’ve heard the rave about this book so I instantly pushed it at the top of my to-read pile. Not knowing what this fucker is all about! I didn’t even know it was erotica at first. The genre is not new to me. I’ve read some decent erotic books. I just didn’t expect that BDSM will be as cheesy as this trilogy.
The trilogy centers on the beginning and development of fifty shade Christian Grey and inner goddess Anastasia Steele’s relationship. The series is full of, like I mentioned BDSM, intense sexual scenes and some other kinds of sexual shit that some may
like. Of course it’s a love story as well if you like it to be that way.
I have lots of things to say about the books, mostly negative but I don’t think that’s necessary. I already read lots of insults about the trilogy. I still respect the author for her work. Don’t get me wrong. The writing is shitty. It’s just that, her enthusiasm of her work is great that she created this whole mess, this whole hype about Fifty. It’s a Twilight fanfic but I don’t see the similarities besides the hot male lead character with his stupid female lover. I’m a kind of reader who doesn’t actually blame the author of her works. I think I’d blame myself more because I chose to read it.
I think many liked the series because they fell in love with Christian Grey. Well, who wouldn’t? I did! A guy who’s so wealthy that he can buy you anything that you want and provide your needs - material and sexual needs. Yeah, we fell in love with the money and the looks and the body and the…, I can’t think of anything else.lol Anyway, I think I liked the book because of him. Because he’s so generous, handsome, hot, wealthy, sexy, what else? Fucked up! This is a superficial kind of love.
Now let’s talk about Anastasia fucking Steele. Another fucked up and stupid character that doesn’t know anything but to bite her lips, spread her legs, and be the drama queen. Her stupid fucking inner goddess is so irritating. Like so overly irritating. If you plan to read the book skip the parts where inner goddess is mentioned.
Told you, I liked the book in a weird kind of way. hehe I don’t recommend the book. But if you like to know about what the hype is all about, go ahead and read. But if you’re just curious and just want to know why people hate it, don’t waste your time on this. If you like rich, hot, sexy, fictional male character, you might want to try it. lol I can’t believe I said that! XD
If I get stranded in a shopping mall, please let it be inside a bookstore…
