4.0 out of 5 stars Really 3.5 - Little Lacking at the End, But overall Satisfying, May 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades Trilogy (Paperback)
What can I write that hasn't been written before? Seems so odd to me now that I so tentatively read the first novel, and winced several times, not just at the graphic sex scenes, but at the really weird (to me anyway) "submissive" roles Ana would take on. I really felt uncomfortable at her "kneeling" in the submissive position in the playroom. Honestly, that disturbed me more than any of the other kinky sex. But, that being said.... after reading the first 2 books of the trilogy, we all want to know how this will end. And, I can truthfully say that the 3rd book is not a disappointment in that regard.... the relationship evolves even further and is at times very sweet. The wedding, the honeymoon, when the "honeymoon ends..." Especially knowing, that Ana has given her heart to a very "#$%-ed" up Mr. Grey & takes a chance.... Remember, it's fiction.... Would anyone else have this much faith? Don't know.... but that's why we read fiction.... for the "What if's" in life.

It ends as it should. But, it's still a little "choppy", just.... maybe a bit too hurried? I'm not sure. And I will say, I'm not a fan of the last bit about "Christian's point of view", going from the beginning of the story.... I liked so much better NOT knowing what he was all about (As the 1st person narrative of Ana) & trying to figure him out, just lent an intriguing mystery about Mr. Grey.

All in all, it's a good read & REALLY (?) all those who criticize the writing? What IS good writing? I've read Austen, Cervantes, Twain.... all good, but I think they would even agree - if you enjoyed the story & "couldn't put the book down" - that's good writing - don't over think it!
