Book Review: Grey

Book Review: Grey

I love the first three Fifty Shades Of Grey books, the film was good - not great but good! So when I heard that E L James was releasing another book called Grey I just had to pre-order it. It is basically Fifty Shades Of Grey in Christian's view.

See the world of Fifty Shades Of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.

Christian Grey exercises control in all things, his world is neat, disciplined and utterly empty - until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget about her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he can not resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him - past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian's cold, wounded heart.

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

My Review

This came through my letterbox on Thursday and by Monday morning I had finished reading it. I have really enjoyed reading this book. I think if you are a fan of the original books then you will enjoy this book to. It is basically the first book but in Christians's point of view - obviously!
There are things that have been left out that were in the first book but have been replaced by something that has happened or is happening in Christian's life. It was very interesting to read it from Christian's point of view. I know some people have said he comes across a bit whipped or a wuss at the end but I liked the end - the fact he was that upset at loosing her was nice to read, lets not forget Ana is the only girl who he has ever let get this close to him. He let her sleep in his bed, had 'vanilla' sex with and that's not including all the other things like the soaring and family dinner. He truly cared for her so why shouldn't he get a bit upset. People says it poorly written to but to be honest I didn't really think that, I really did enjoy this book and found myself sitting there thinking "just one more chapter". You find a little bit out about a few of the other 15 as well which is interesting as I certainly wondered what had happened or why they had parted. I did find myself slightly frustrated at Christian though at one point but that was down to his attitude about Anna and Mrs Robinson.
Overall I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the first books.

You can find Grey on Amazon, if you hurry it is currently £3.85 on paperback.
