Fifty Shades of Awful,
This review is from: Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades Trilogy (Paperback)
Please do not waste your time with this book. I heard reviews of it all over the place including CBC and the New York Times that raved about how fantastic and racey it was. Turns out this is just a novel for those who have suppressed sexual thoughts to the point of oblivion and need a poorly written, unbelievable, erotic drugstore paperback novel in order to make them feel naughty. Our main character is swept up in a world of dominant emotional abuse, veiled by a small handful of S&M scenarios, and basically we're lead in circles as nothing actually happens in the book and she is constantly whispering and mumbling to her rich emotionally disturbed boyfriend. The S&M subject matter was actually a draw for me as I felt it may have the potential to express various types of sexuality, I was wrong; it was used simply as shock factor to snap you out of the ongoing drone of a lack of plot. My greatest fear is that this is fostering a generation of individuals who will believe this is good literature. Please put this book down and simply admit that its purchase was a rash decision that you don't need to feel the consequences of. Lastly do not take sexual advice from this book, men everywhere will thank you if you do not follow Ana's lead and find your own, toothless, type of oral pleasure.
