Like many other Americans, I am finishing up the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Should I really be admitting that on my blog?
I go back and forth. Do I like Fifty or hate him? Do I think Ana is nuts or is what she says and does something that resonates with me?
I am reading the books for pure entertainment purposes, as well as, of course, the need to be in the know with young kids these days. Ha. I’m kidding….ish.
I have debated with friends about the jerkiness of Fifty and I mostly can’t defend him, but doesn’t Ana bring much of this nonsense on herself?
At this point, I’m 64% through book 3 (I read on my Kindle, so I can be precise like that) and I’m kind of ready for this series to be done. I’m losing interest quick.
What I think is funny though, is the absolute craze that these books have created. Have there never been books with sexual undertones before? What makes these different? I mean, I jumped on the bandwagon, so something sparked my interest…honestly, I think it was a girl friend of mine saying that “even her cheeks turned red while reading…”. Knowing her, I knew I had to read.
Just curious who else has read and what their impression was.
Like Fifty? Hate Fifty? Feel sorry for Fifty?
Like Ana? Think Ana is nuts?
I go back and forth, but like I said, I’ve lost some interest and am ready to move on. Who’s got another (maybe a little less graphic 🙂 ) book to recommend?
