Two Out of Five Stars **
Link to this book on Goodreads .
Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.
But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.
Fifty Shades Darker is so cliche. And i knew that before i read it. Let’s be honest here. I read it for the sex. Which was hilerious and not as good as Lora Leigh (Go Breeds!).
Anastasia Steele is so strange! Grey tells her at least a million times that he loves her but she doesn’t believe him. Not even when he pulls out a ring and asks her to marry him. Which, incidently, I expected. And when Gery said she was giving out mixed signals…he wasn’t wrong! So…first she likes the idea of BDSM. Then she doesn’t. Then she does. Then she doesn’t. Then she lets him…do BDSM stuff with her.
(I don’t know whether it’s because I’m a teenager and I don’t get the seriousness and appeal of this book…but the kinky stuff was hilerious. Seriously, i laughed.)
Chritsain Grey has multiple personality disorder. Anastasia and I agree on that one solitary thing. But…i don’t think it was intentional. EL James may have tried to give Christain some problems but it was the terrible use of her writing that made him this way.
Although, I enjoyed the eMails. They were good 🙂
I’ll be honest again. I don’t get why the world is so taken with this trilogy. The sex was good…but I only read this for one night. (Geddit??)
I don’t think that I’ll be reading the third book. Unless I get desperate. Again.
