Book Description


When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.
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. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.
Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

There are life's guilty pleasures, and then there is the guiltiest spectacle of them all: the Fifty Shades of Grey spectacle. It's time to review this precious pearl of literary genius, so I'm going to dive on in. Hold me.

When we last left our romantic icons, Ana Steele and Christian Grey, they were newly engaged and facing (a) Ana's ex-boss, Jack Hyde, whom Christian fired in a fit of jealous pique when Jack made a pass at Ana and (b) Christian's "Mrs. Robinson," the woman who initiated him into his life of BDSM. Can these two crazy love birds find happiness and contentment? Thank goodness E. L. James doesn't keep us hanging and gives us the GIFT that is Fifty Shades Freed.

The tale opens just after Christian and Ana's wedding, as the two bask on their European honeymoon. They bicker, rock the headboard, bicker some more, and have make-up rocking of the headboard. While enjoying their romantic interlude, Christian learns that someone apparently tried to sabotage part of his building. Enter the "plot" portion of the festivities. The threat to Grey Enterprises increases, and we are meant to be on the edge of our seats in anticipation of how this AWFUL THING will transpire. There also continues to be friction in the Grey marriage. These two argue about the same damn thing all the time, followed by furious headboard rockin'.

So there's your story.

While this one shares certain similarities with Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker, in Fifty Shades Freed, James actually attempts - gulp - style. There are flashbacks, seemingly set at even intervals, but then mysteriously dropped. Until, that is, the epilogue, where they show up again. Clearly E. L. James realized that we don't read these books for STYLE. I mean, really.

What a treat this book was. We get to experience their dreamy wedding, including a totally inappropriate scene in front of the minister and all their wedding guests, in a series of flashbacks. They are on a dream honeymoon and already Anastasia is afraid of her husband's temper. It's never a good sign in a relationship if you are afraid of your partner or have to walk on eggshells around them. But it's alright. He has lots of money and is super beautiful and perfect, as we are reminded yet again on every single page, so as always with her, it's fine! He's just damaged! Her damaged dark little fifty. Ugh. Where's a shotgun when you need one?

The descriptions of her subconscious and inner goddess and what they are doing get oddly more specific with each book, to the point where it's just bizarre and annoying. Her subconscious at one point looked up from reading `The Complete works of Charles Dickens', to give Anastasia an admonishing look no doubt. It's not cute anymore. I usually have to put the book down after reading one of these gems and take a deep breath before I throw it. Oh, and her Inner Goddess reads Jackie Collins, in case you were wondering

In all three books now we are treated with the `No you hang up!' barf fest.

Jealousy, jealousy, jealousy. It's like all these two know is sex and jealousy. Every woman is jonesing after Christian all the time. And it's ok for him to get so irrationally possessive he buys her company, but if she shows a hint of jealousy with him, it's all *Tsk-tsk*

It is never romantic when your husband says he really wants to beat you. He says that lovely line after someone broke into her home. Victim blaming, anyone? I don't care if he is mad, which is totally misplaced most of the time. All of the time actually.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrid, Awful, Cringe worthy...and MISLEADING May 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Other one star reviewers have alreay covered the absolutely, ridiculously, embarrassingly bad writing and repetitive phrases that read like a teenager wrote them. Amen to that! Besides the fact this story could have been distilled down to one book, here's what got me: all the titillating press coverage would have you believe this series is erotic fiction. IT'S NOT: nothing ever moves beyond light bondage and spanking, which are fairly commonplace in your average bodice ripper. Despite lots of hints of "we'll do this later", the action in the play room is dull, dull, dull. Nothing more ever happens than what takes place in the first book. If you read the first book, don't look for any different sex scenes in the next two books. I'm not suggesting Ana should have been hurt more - I'm just saying if you like creative, erotic fiction there is a ton of variety the author hinted at but never used for what could have been very hot - but safe - sex scenes. She never delivered. And some libraries banned this series? You've got to be kidding me - this is tame stuff.

I will give the author kudos for one thing though: she's laughing all the way to the bank. Gotta give her credit for whatever she did to get books published that would make any decent high school writing teacher vomit.

3.0 out of 5 stars All frosting and no cake - but oh, what frosting! April 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No surprises here: a rich alpha male with a harrowing childhood and inner demons plucks (I choose that word deliberately) a young woman from obscurity, or in this case, college. Christian Grey decides in a few weeks that Ana Steele will be his salvation to his inner demons and is the love of his life. Ana decides in as short a time that he is the love of her life. If she didn't, Grey offers her the money, the sex drive, and the emotional sustenance to ensure she will. Ana and Grey are also, Ms James assures us repeatedly, very good looking. Ana doesn't stand a chance, and neither do we.

Most people may focus, wrongly in my view, that sex is the only element of these books. Don't get me wrong: there's a lot of it, it's well-written (a rarity), and it will probably introduce a lot of readers to BDSM-oriented romance. For what it's worth, I'm more offended by Grey's taste in classical music than I am by his handcuffs. Ignore the pearl clutchers and read the trilogy if you're interested. It's handled responsibly.

But it's Grey and Ana's highly emotional connection that drives their relationship, and the book. It has to. There's little plot or character development. To compensate for this lack, Grey and Ana emote in a way that is simply breathtaking. Ana cries, shakes and goes off her feed at the slightest whiff of trouble. Grey storms about in anger, professes love and talks about sex in a straightforward manner that modern men rarely do - and I suspect, readers wish they did. Some romance sub-genres get away by turning up the emotions to level 11 by making the stakes high - the fate of a clan might hang in the balance in a historical romance, the death of a "one true mate" or the end of the world in a paranormal.

The end in book three was the start of book one but if you read it again you will see its written from Christian's point of view and not Ana's. I think it was some insight into his mind.

Oh, I hope she does write the series from Christian's perspective. I really enjoyed his take on their first meeting. I would really, really like to read from his point of view, when Ana leaves him in Book One and when he drops into the submissive role in Book Two.
