Yes, I am a fan of Fifty Shades Grey. If you’re not a fan of FSOG, don’t bother reading this review and please don’t write any comments.
Did I think FSOG was perfect? No, but I don’t really know of any book that I would say is perfect.
Now I take a deep breath. I fear writing about what seems to be such a controversial book/series. It’s not that I fear arguing my points – I did become an attorney. But rather, for me, reading is supposed to be fun. It’s not something that warrants arguing my position. If I enjoy a book, I like to share my thoughts. If I don’t like the book I simply don’t waste my time writing about it.
All that being said, if you liked Fifty Shades of Grey, I recommend reading Grey. Christian is certainly an interesting character and is worthy of his POV story. I loved the way in which he questions his own feelings and is certainly trying to better himself. Of course, his continued inability to sense how others are concerned about him was a bit sad. I was surprised by how little he opened up to Elena. Most importantly, I liked learning how his relationship with Anastasia eased his troubled psyche.
In the end, I think I preferred Grey to Fifty Shades of Grey. Except, I don’t like books that end cliff hangers. Frustrating, right? At least in this case, the reader knows the ultimate outcome. I wouldn’t mind a little more Christian in future POV books.
