Review: Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James

Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James
Paperback, 456 pages
Published January 19th 2012 by The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House

When unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately repelled by Christian's singular sexual tastes, Ana demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed. Now, together, they have more -- love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity, or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present. Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, tragedy, malice and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true.

Third one down! No more to go! Well, this is pretty much more of the same thing. Christians says don’t do that, she does it anyway, he gets mad, they forgive each other, they have sex. The end.

There are a couple plot twists that I wasn’t expecting. The ending wasn’t bad either but that’s because of the plot twist. I was thrown off by the very end. After the epilog there is a section titled Fifty Shades of Christian, which is in Christian’s POV. It is some of Christian’s first days at his “new mommy and daddy’s house” and his POV from the beginning of the first book. It was a little interesting seeing what he thought during the first interview.

I have to say that I am glad I’m done with the series. I’m not one to not finish a series once I’ve started. I honestly can’t say this book was bad but it was just repetitive and unbelievable. I just don’t see a man like Christian changing so fast for some random girl who fell into his office. They weren’t even together for long before he started going against everything.

I don’t think I expected the book to end any differently though. (My husband thought she would end up killing him to get away from him J)

Let me know if you’ve read the series and what your thoughts were.

  1. Killing him sound like a reasonable ending ^^ I haven't read the books, but from the things I heard.. I'd cheer if she did such a thing :p
