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~
