I have read book one....I think I got coerced into reading them.
Book one - Fifty Shades.. The sex got very tedious, each time 'Anastasia' went drippy I rolled my eyes, not again. She becomes wimpy and very needy,and then you want to slap her yourself. Thank goodness I finished that book.

Book two - Fifty Shades Darker.. At last the semblance of a story, but now he becomes needy, this time though it fits better. I will admit to enjoying the second book.

Book three - I was interested to read how it all panned out, but we all know who the person who wanted to spoil it all...At the end it was so so predictable..2 kids, sun, meadow, picnic..big house behind with panoramic view.

I can see why women love it..girl is wooed and seduced by multi millionaire, and gets lots of presents. Not in anyone's lifetime would it ever happen but a woman can dream..of the money, the beautiful man and rich lifestyle. Not for me though.

Now the serious review bit: Very very predictable story about person who is involved in bdsm and who has to be somehow screwed up big time, after all why would anyone be normal if they liked something different. Also this is a book about sex, so why marry sex with bdsm? Nothing wrong with role play, but not the same as bdsm. Still I guess the book was written for maximum income targeting women whose lives are a little jaded and want to have some excitement of dreaming there is something more daring out there.

Lasting impression: forgotten them already ( )

Absolutely in love with this series! 😍 it's not just about a bdsm relationship or darkness... It is an actual love story and the romance I love it! 💞 ( )

Loved this series. I read all three books twice and the first one a third time. Christian Grey is swoon worthy. I loved E L James' writing. You can tell she's very educated. The story line was brilliant. So many unexpected things happened. We all know there's a lot of sex in these books but like I said, the story line was GREAT! ( )
