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.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Harlequin for the bondage set May 20 2012
By smokey
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?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth it June 13 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
**Spoiler Alert** Anastasia and Christian are broken up, but not for long. I can't believe how she took him back so quickly. The guy is so controlling, and he has her wrapped around his finger. She does whatever he wants like she is a slave to him, and don't let me get started about their jealousy. Anastasia is so stupid to put it mildly. Even though Christian may be arrogant, at one point he was correct when he warned her to delete their messages from the computer--it's being monitored. He even told her to use the Blackberry, but she wouldn't listen. It's her fault her boss went after her and was suspicious. What angered me how Christian forbid her to go to work and she took that from him. I don't notice her with friends much, mostly him. Seriously, did she have a life other than him? I guess not. It isn't love between these two characters, only lust and satisfy their need. I found it strange how Christian disliked to be touched from beginning of the story. From what I understand Anastasia's innocence and she somehow turned his life around. Christian even indicated in the beginning of their so called relationship, he wasn't into flowers and hearts. She went after him, and he soon started having feelings for her and allowed her to touch him. I was stunned by this whole book. I have read books in similar genre, but you feel more drawn to the story. For this book, I kind of like it and hate it at the same time. There are some parts I liked, but it seemed to me more of a abuse relationship. This guy may be a millionaire, but he isn't that amazing that Anastasia can't focus when around him. In this whole book it seemed in some ways sad because Christian had a hard life and didn't know any other way to behave. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars 50 Shades of grim! March 12 2015
By col2910 TOP 500 REVIEWER


Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever ...

Daunted by the dark secrets of the tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Ana Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a US publishing house.

But desire for Grey still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, she cannot resist. Soon she is learning more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades than she ever thought possible.

But while Grey wrestles with his inner demons, Ana must make the most important decision of her life. And it's a decision she can only make on her own ...

Well, I'll try and find something positive to say about this unfortunate read. It's only 532 pages long and despite not being what I would call a typical page-turner you can eat the pages up quite quickly! And I suppose anything that creates a media buzz and makes people who usually wouldn't read, pick up a book can't be a bad thing.

So why did I read it? Well, in the Keane household, I have a habit of reading what my wife has read previously, just so we can compare afterwards. Typically she reads the likes of Linwood Barclay, Harlan Coben, Tess Gerritsen etc, so whilst these aren't on my A-list of people I would typically read through choice I have enjoyed some of these authors, some more than others. Anyway the girls at her work were reading these and chatting about them in the summer; ergo it's my time a couple of months down the line.

I have to say James can write better than I can, though whether she is a good writer is doubtful in my opinion.
