Review: Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy

Hello, welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today I’m going to be going back to Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James.

Yes there was a time in my life that I read these books. Do I regret it? No, and I’ll tell you why: I would then always wonder what the hype was about them (although I still kinda do, because they were trash) but at least I have some sort of answer and I can be at ease, and not always left in the dark.

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)
Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey by: E.L. James: How do you turn a cliché story into a story about erotic sex? Well you get that when you read Fifty Shades of Grey. The beginning is all very cliché stuff, the main character Ana, does an interview for her roommate, and obviously the person she interviews, Christian Grey, falls for her. Only it’s not that simple love thing, it’s more a sex thing. The book is filled with a lot of detailed sex scenes, though there were parts that didn’t contain sex and where very well done. If you like the adult romance novels, 100% something you should read. Though if you don’t, you may want to stay clear of the book.

Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades, #2)
Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker by: E.J. James: If you’ve ever read a fan fiction on the Internet you can tell that this series has the same kind of quality to them, or the lack there of. This novel was no different from the first one. Though maybe less sex, and more of a plot line. An ex of Christian’s shows up, Ana’s new boss wants in her pants, and Christian almost dies. There is somewhat a plot line that goes on, but it’s really hard to get through with all the pointless sex scenes, you really don’t need that many. That’s probably what makes the novel so boring. Whatever your cup of tea is for books, (this may be one of them), it was just written to write because the author wants to write about sex.

Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades, #3)
Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed by: E.L. James: The last novel in the Fifty Shades trilogy which brings the reader to a final ending to the story. The two main characters, Ana and Christian finally work out their problems that they have in their relationship, and outside of it. It takes a while to get to, but it comes to a really nice ending, even though the novel is filled with lots of sex everywhere; the ending is nice, which is surprising. The ending, the last couple chapters, the reader gets a real sense of who the character Christian Grey is, in which the reader can use to understand all three books, and the relationship that is Ana and Christian. It brings out what a relationship goes through, the rises and falls, but not every man is Christian Grey, thank goodness.
