Fifty Shades of Grey - Complete

I'm done.  I've finished the series, the books are now circulating the neighborhood (I've warned all of the husbands their wives may have new ideas in the boudoir).  What did I think? I think the writing became better with each book. The characters a little fuller, more sympathetic.  I guess there is still the fact that Ana's love for Christian caused her so much emotional pain that I didn't understand why she continued to remain with Christian (who definitely showed character growth).  It reminded me of Catherine and Heathcliff of Wuthering Heights-obsession to the result of demise.

And truly-the sex scenes were so ridiculously unrealistic that I started skipping them.  I kept wondering if they are having sex this often, how the hell are they walking? And he touches her and she almost instantly climaxes - REALLY??? While yelling his name and he yelling her name - REALLY??? 

Truly 50 Shades did delve into the obsession-so deeply it was disturbing. However, and this is a big however, I'm glad I've read them.  I was able to see what has captured so many readers and learn of a different type of relationship.  I hadn't really spoken to anyone about the entire series, and I so thought it was going to end badly.  I envisioned broken hearts cinched in handcuffs strewn all over Seattle-yes, that badly.

What did you think? I'd love to know.

That's it according to Maddy~



  1. You made me want to read them and I haven't yet. I might have to try them just to see what the fuss is about.

  2. That's how I started reading them. I finally succumbed to the hype and curiosity of the books. I'm hiding them from my teenage daughters since they sometimes read my books.
