Book Description

April 17 2012 50 Shades Trilogy (Book 2)

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.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

1.0 out of 5 stars Twilight without the vampires July 13 2012
By Susan G
The first book was okay, with some interesting aspects (including good sex scenes) that made up for the juvenile writing and even more juvenile characters. I made the mistake of buying the other two books right after finishing the first. The series is essentially based on the old fallacy that messed up guys can be "fixed" by the right woman. It's also chock full of romance cliches: virginal heroine, hot billionaire with dangerous secrets in his past, ridiculous threat to virginal heroine's life, etc. It's also full of Twilight-esque vomit-worthy writing: obsessive hero who violates boundaries and engages in controlling behaviour but it's okay because he does it out of love; constant misunderstandings based on each main characters' belief that they're not good enough for the other; everyone in love with the quiet, nerdy heroine. By the second book, any original aspects have disappeared, and by the third book the writing is so idiotic you'll lose respect for yourself for continuing to read them.

Do yourself a favour and read the Outlander series or a Song of Ice and Fire or anything but this garbage.

1.0 out of 5 stars Harlequin for the bondage set May 20 2012
By smokey TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't know whether these 'grey' books are abusive or just plain silly. Frightens me that young women reading this tripe think that this type of voluntary degradation is desirable. Surely we have come further than that. They are not even well-written. Hero is a modern Marquis de Sade and heroine (if one can call a slave a heroine) a contemporary Tess. Most disappointing thst these are best-sellers. Only good news is thst I bought them on sale.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring and repetitive June 8 2012
By Lisa
this series is being marketed as erotic and thrilling, but it's boring and repetitive -- and extremely poorly written... how did these books ever become a hit?

1.0 out of 5 stars fifty shades of horror Jan. 10 2014
By Gabi44
If anybody can get exited about that horrible immature written book than the apocalypse isn't far behind . What was the author thinking , we are all idiots ? The characters are stolen from Twilight and the style is exactly like Stefanie Meyer wrote her books . You must really have NO life if you are liking that trash

1.0 out of 5 stars A tree died for this? Feb. 5 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A shining example of plummeting IQ's if this became a best seller. Appalling rubbish. So badly written, one assumes in crayon on the back of a pizza box, that it almost defies description. however, here goes..........

Inane, badly written, puerile dross.....................

1.0 out of 5 stars Like a bucket of cold water Oct. 18 2013

This is not an instruction manual. Guys, if your lady is reading this book - you are done. Just give up and don't even ask. It has no impact on them in the way we would hope for. Very disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit better than the first novel , but still bad Aug. 24 2012
By angel
OK, so we get a bit more information about Christian's life and the reason he does what her does. I still dislike him and can barely tolerate Ana, the mindless airhead who recently graduated from an institution of higher learning. If this is what young women want in a mate, god help you all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay July 8 2012
By Ulrike
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure whether to buy this trilogy. I love twilight and was on the fence about reading Fifty Shades because I wasn't sure about the S&M aspect.
However....people recommended it to me on a few occasions so I gave the books a chance.
The first book is poorly written and takes a few chapters to get into but then I was hooked. The first book was the best of the three, book 2 (Darker) went downhill.
I started finding that Ana was kind of a pansy and weakling by book 2. She doesn't ever stand up for herself and Christian uses sex to control her and silence her often times. I was getting frustrated that she wouldn't speak up for herself.
She also tends to have very repetitive dialogue and is not a very interesting or dynamic character.
Honestly - the most interesting character in the book was Ana's sub-conscience. She made me smile a few times. The second most interesting is Kate Kavanagh (her best friend/roommate).

Ana was sort of hard to root for and identify with. How many times can she say "Please" to Christian during sex? And how can she always reach the grand finale just when he tells her to? It was a little overdone.

It is a fun, summer read. By book 3 it seems like the author is just tying up loose ends and trying too hard to make everything a happy ending and it drags on at times.
