My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Grey was a solid 5-star read for me! If I can’t put a book down, if it consumes my thoughts and if I have a book-hangover after I finish it… It’s a 5-star read. So thank you E L James for my most recent book-hangover <3
So many people have been complaining that Grey was no different than FSOG, I’m really not sure what they were expecting from an alternate point of view. Did I feel like it was a retelling of the story??? Of course I did but it was how Christian viewed every situation… It was the same but different. As with any book told from an alternate POV, the general storyline is the same but how this character interprets the story was definitely different.
Christian Grey is such an in-depth character, and I definitely saw more depth of his character in Grey. His childhood, his views on himself and how deeply he fell in love without even knowing it. I don’t view him nearly as dark a man as I had when I read FSOG. I have definitely fallen deeper for this book boyfriend!
I also found Grey to be much more erotic than FSOG. Hearing Christian’s words and thoughts… GAH!!!!! H-O-T!!! So much more sensual. If you’re pulse isn’t racing or your thighs clenching after reading some of the scenes as told by Christian…You have issues 😉
It was bittersweet to finish reading Grey, especially since I need MORE!!! I am praying E L James will take pity on us die-hard fans and give us Christian’s POV for each book… I NEED MORE!
Grey won’t be for everyone, some people won’t like it because they are expecting an entirely different story. But, for those of you die-hards like myself, you ARE going to get Christian…and all of his Fifty Shades.
