Quickie Review: Grey by E.L. James

25644601See 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 know a lot of people aren’t fond of this book or series, but I am! I really enjoyed the first 2 books of the 50 trilogy. I never read the third book, because I saw a lot of people were disappointed, And I didn’t want to taint the trilogy.

That of course has nothing to do with Grey. I without a doubt, LOVED this book. I liked it even more than the original book in the series. Why is that? I didn’t like Anastasia. She was never the character who appealed to me. Christian was the one I read the books for.

I understand that Grey needed a woman who was more passive and docile, but Ana was too naive and annoying for me to ever really like her character. I did not enjoy being in her thoughts, and honestly in the first book, if she wasn’t with Christian, I basically skim read.

Now with Grey, I enjoyed it all. I loved having Christians thoughts, feelings, and emotions. In 50 I was always wondering, geez, what does Christian think of that, and in Grey all my answers were met!

If your biggest complaint was that Ana was annoying and had no backbone, therefore Christian came off kinda rapey, then I would read Grey. I personally never thought this book sounded rapey, because Ana consented to everything, but others did. Anyways, I liked Grey I give it 5 stars!

5 stars
