BLURB FROM GOODREADS
“I want to own this woman, body and soul. I want her”
I read the first book of the Fifty Shades trilogy a couple years ago. So, when I read Grey (the first book, told from Christian’s perspective) some passages were more familiar than others. With some parts I was like: “Oh, I remember this. This is what Anastasia thought.” Reading other parts I thought: “Did this happen? I can’t remember it.” It was really nice to read about Christian’s thoughts in all those moments.
“I want so much from her: her trust, her obedience, her submission. I want her to be mine, but right now…I’m hers.”
Some sentences where in Italic. Those were Grey’s real thoughts. Perhaps things he really wanted to say to Ana, but thought better of and in the end didn’t. I loved those sentences. They brought Grey closer and made you understand him better. I loved how Grey’s book answered some of the questions I had. (Keep in mind that I didn’t read Fifty Shades Freed). For example, I got to understood the fear of being touched and (finally) found out what happened with his mother.
“She’s my dream catcher. She keeps my nightmares at bay.”
I’m a little bit disappointed though, because there are still questions that are left unanswered. Maybe if I’ll read Fifty Shades Freed, those questions won’t be questions anymore. I also found the ending really stupid, but I also understand it. I just would’ve liked it if the ending wasn’t so abrupt.
“I want to stay in her mind. I need to stay in her mind.”
Over all, I liked to read the book and to get a sneak peek in the head of the infamous and intriguing Christian Grey. An absolute must-read if you’re not shy of steamy sex scenes and if you read the other Fifty Shades books.
