See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.
In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.
Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.
Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?
I’ve mention in my movie review that “I’ve enjoyed the entire series and to be honest it is the one series that got me started in reading this genre …” That being said, there was never a question if I was going to read this book or not. After finally finishing the book off this morning however, I have to say that “Grey” was very disappointing.
I’m not saying that it was all horrible. There were quite a few interesting POV’s such as reading into Christain’s thoughts when Anastasia was leaving for Georgia, his private conversations with Elena and the extras at the end but then there are several paragraphs that made me wish that I could unread it.
I went into this book wanting to fall deeply and madly in love with Christian’s character but instead it had the opposite effect. Christian just rubbed me the wrong way with how he repeatedly displayed his side of immaturity. What was even more maddening about it was this book had so much potential.
The first Fifty Shades for me was good but regretfully his POV is one that I should have left alone.
