Review

"Christian Grey's candid narrative gives the familiar story a raw, passionate and much sexier context ... the Ana that Christian Grey sees: sexy, seductive, witty and in his own words "a siren". She displays a compelling blend of vulnerability and backbone and finally feels like a character women can get behind ... Best of all the book allows readers direct access to Christian Grey's deepest, darkest thoughts ... It is fascinating to read the story with fresh eyes too, having glimpsed Christian's traumatic childhood and gained an understanding of his motivations. More realistic and far racier than anything EL James has written before, Grey was definitely worth the wait. Frankly it gives the first three books a much-deserved spanking." Daily Express "I love, love, loved it!" -- Liz Jones The Mail on Sunday "This new book, as with the trilogy and the movie, puts women's sexual desires out into the open, which can only be a good thing." -- Liz Jones The Mail on Sunday --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

About the Author

After twenty-five years working in TV, E L James decided to pursue her childhood dream, and set out to write stories that readers would fall in love with. The result was the sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, a trilogy that went on to sell more than 125 million copies worldwide in 52 languages.
     In 2012 E L James was named one of Barbara Walters's "Ten Most Fascinating People of the Year," one of Time magazine's "Most Influential People in the World," and Publishers Weekly’s "Person of the Year.” Fifty Shades of Grey stayed on the New York Times Best Seller List for 133 consecutive weeks, and in 2015 the film adaptation—on which James worked as producer—broke box-office records all over the world for Universal Pictures.
     E L James lives in West London with her husband, the novelist and screenwriter Niall Leonard, and their two sons. She continues to write novels while acting as producer on the upcoming movie versions of Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

I have been reading almost every new erotica book to hit the Amazon shelves for the past 5 years now, and I thought this was a little different take on the norm! If you never liked 50 shades, you probably won’t like Grey - but everything’s worth reading once, so give it a try. Keep in mind this is retelling 50 shades, just a different perspective!

If you’re not in the mood for Grey, there are the novelette options like Dark Petals by Deidre St Luke the up and coming writer.

Lastly, I have read some of the reviews posted and while I am not bashing anyone's opinion I would simply like to point out some facts.
1. This is a retelling of the original story but from Christians POV--therefore how can the author make it be different or original
2. Whereas I did find Christian to be immature and childish in his actions and thoughts those of us who read the original series new this already. His growth didn't come around until after the second book started. Even Dr. Flynn tells Ana that in a lot of ways emotionally Christian is still a child so this is not news.
3. I do believe this book helped to better understand Christian I am not altogether certain it was necessary as the series was already a huge success but just as I am sure with other readers the times I really wanted to know what he was thinking came in book two and three.
For instance when he and Ana marreid, what was on his mind as he and Ros made their way home after Charlie Tango crashed, and I really want into his head the night he confronted Elena at his mother's home.

I apologize, faithful readers. I am one of the hordes of people who clamored for Christian's version of his romance with Anastasia Steele. I begged for it, in fact. I thought his perspective, included at the end of Fifty Shades Freed, was far more captivating than anything Ana had to say.

So when I found out that E.L. James, who clearly recognizes an opportunity when she sees one, was publishing Christian's POV, I was as giddy as a thirteen-year-old at a One Direction concert.

Giddier, even.

And then - AND THEN - I read the book.

The thing about the Fifty Shades juggernaut is that the books, while ridiculously written and unintentionally hilarious, were fun. They were addicting in the worst possible way, and I could not put them down.

Literary crack: you know they're bad for you, but you don't care.

The movie version was better than I thought it would be. Dakota Johnson! I know, right? Who knew? Together with director Sam Taylor Johnson, she gave Ana a much-needed personality injection, emphasizing the virtually nonexistent friskiness of the book. (Jamie Dornan - well, he's gorgeous, and he kind of looks like the Christian I pictured. Here's hoping he loosens up a little in the next one.)

Lately, though, it appears as if E.L. James has started taking herself a wee tad too seriously. First she makes Sam Taylor Johnson so miserable that Johnson backs out from directing the sequel. Then James decides she will commandeer the script and write it herself. I'm waiting for the announcement that she's going to direct, too.

This brings me to Grey, which is just all around a regrettable book.

Here is why I was excited about this one: we get Christian's voice. Let's be honest here for a minute.

>Review – Grey -

>I am an independent reviewer. This is the fourth book In the Fifty Shades series and ends in a cliffhanger.

>I must admit that I love the Fifty Shades of Grey series. I also liked the movie. That being said, this book, which is the EXACT same story as FSOG, only told from Christian's point of view, is the best of the bunch. Christian is a very private person. Reading the story through Ana's eyes, he seems cold and distant. He is anything but. He is trying to please Ana, but he is confused. His dreams reveal so much more about his real mother. It is heartbreaking to know she called him maggot. The dream with Elena is the most revealing. He says he is over Elena, but he thinks of her quite a bit. Ana was a bit whiny to me, but I like her a lot more from Christian's eyes.

>I hope the author will write book 2 and 3 from Christian's point of view. He is fascinating and so unsure of himself! Not until this book, did I realize how distracted he was at work. I wondered how he could invest in a consuming relationship with Ana and still run a successful company, flawlessly.

>This book is recommended for an adult audience. Highly recommend.

Alright, so I am in the middle of reading this, along with Fifty Shades Freed. Despite my dislike of the series, I believe it important to read widely and to read varied things, so reading trashy romance while reading existential questioning or comedic fantasy is entirely right up my alley. The problems with the series are varied and aspects of it show up in all the books:

1. Issues of dialect and word choice:
Both Anastasia and Grey speak with markers of British dialects: the use of "shall" and certain conjunction differences ("I've not" versus "I haven't," the former is more common in the UK, the latter is more common in the US). Word choice flips back and forth in Grey, between the unbelievably crass to pompously purple in the span of a few sentences, which is incredibly jarring. Several of the more advanced vocabulary are used incorrectly. The age dialect issue is glaring as well. For example, those under fifty do not refer to female homosexuals as gay (using the term 'lesbian' instead) while those over fifty use the term gay to refer to male and female homosexuals. Christian uses the word choice James would, not someone in his age-bracket.

James also seems to think that the Pacific Northwest's subcultural mores are akin to the South of the United States with workers (such as calling people 'honey' and chatting casually with many of the patrons). I've lived in the South for a time and visited the Pacific Northwest and they have very different feels to them, including at restaurants. This smacks of another problem she has, namely a lack of research. She seems to think American culture is entirely like the South.
