A disappointment, I skimmed the last half of the book. ( )
  BookaholicCat | Mar 4, 2015 |
This review is for the entire series. So let me start by saying that I really did want to like this series, my best friend talked me into reading it, and it wasn't awful, but I didn't think it was as great as apparently every other person on the planet does. The first book was the best for me by far. In books 2 and 3, I could not stand Ana. Yes Christian is controlling, yes he has all kinds of issues, but I saw him making an effort for Ana, and all I got from her was whining and nagging and immaturity and insecurity; so that by the time I got a quarter of the way through book 3, all I really wanted to do was strangle her and throw my kindle on to the ground and smash it into little pieces. Everything was about her and what she wanted and what he wasn't doing or giving her. Nothing about how hard he was trying and that he was talking to her and telling her things about his past and always having to push him when she shouldn't. And I don't understand why she couldn't let go of the dumbest little issues, but major issues like bathing Leila or not informing her of the increased security wiht his family and why were forgotten. She was just completely obnoxious, and I wonder why Christian stayed with her. Again, I know he had issues and was very controlling, but he had a very traumatic childhood including his relationship with Mrs. Robinson. Other than being young what is Ana's excuse?! At one point she mentioned always being rejected and something about her childhood, but she was taken care of by her step father even when he mother couldn't or wouldn't, and I didn't hear much about problems in her childhood other than trouble with her mom's third husband, but she lived with her step father then, so I don't understand her issue?! I am glad they got their HEA though, and I loved the extras that were from Christian's POV. I'd give books 2 & 3 2.5 stars and the first book 3 stars. ( )

Enjoyed the ending. All stories came together. The sexcapades became a bit much but again great storyline. Would make a good discussion on a women's self worth and compromising to the point of losing yourself. ( )

I did it! I made it through all three books. I have to say that I might actually have started to like Christian as a character. He's not quite as 2D as before. And I'm happy she didn't feel the need to write in every single intimate encounter that they had. She isn't really good at varying up her descriptions so I skipped past most of them to get to the actual story.
The question is, if there was a 4th book, would I read it. I think so to be honest. But I think they've tied up most of the lose ends so I can't see where she'd go with it. Life with the Empty Nester Grey's? Doesn't quite have the same appeal I think. ( )

Book description
When unworldly student Anastasia Stelle 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 demand 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.
