"In a class by itself." (Entertainment Weekly)
I had said that I would not read these books if I had to purchase them. Well that was on the first book. I got it for free. As you know this is the second one, and I brought it. I loved it and believe it was worth the money. I must say that my opinion was based on what others thought about the sexual content of the book but what I feel people should be thinking about is the great story line. Yes, the sex is deep but it does not take away from the story line. Christian is in need of someone to love him for who he is and not what he can give them and she is that for him. Brought the last book and cannot wait to see the movie.
I read the books in succession when they were first released, downloaded the Audio books as a refresher for the movie. I found the limitations of narrator changed how I visualized the events. It was a bit of a letdown.
The only problem that I have is the fact that their ids only one reader. It would be better if their were a man and female. Doing that would make it a little more realistic.
I don't know what people are complaining about. The narrator sounds young because Ana is. She's a college student telling her story from her perspective. I wasn't annoyed with Becca's voice at all. I could still totally imagine the characters. Especially Christian. I loved the trilogy. I've listened to the audiobooks and read them once already and I'm almost finished with listening to the entire trilogy again. I don't like E.L.'s repetitive writing style at all but once I got over it, (which she made difficult to do) I payed more attention to the story which is a love story at the core. Albeit a unrealistic one. I like the story and just fell in love with Christian. With his broken but healing self. On to Fifty Shades Freed for the 2nd time. Enjoy!
