Fifty Shades Trilogy Bundle: Fifty Shades of Grey; Fifty Shades Darker; Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Trilogy - E.L. James Maybe you’re wondering why I’m writing a review of all three the books together. Well, I’ll explain. These books are like a thee part play. In the first book of this trilogy, you get to know the characters and everything around them, just like in the first part of a play. When you go to a play in the theatre, you don’t just watch one part and then just leave, do you? No, thought so. These books are one story, divided in three. You have to watch at it as a whole. Because separate, they are not complete. And, in my opinion, this is a beautiful story. Sure, I understand why some people have issues with it and the writing isn’t top notch, but the story is good. It’s romantic, dramatic, exciting,… Everything I want in a book. But above all it’s a love story. Not a traditional one, of course, but a love story none the less.The characters. I’ll start with mister Christian Grey. Some people wonder why someone would want their own Christian after reading the first book. I get that. He’s a bit of an ass in the first book, I’ll admit. But he has so much more to him. There is a reason why he acts like he does. He literally is fifty shades of fucked up. He had a really hard time as a kid and he has gone through so much in his life, no wonder he is fucked up. But as the story goes along, he grows. He becomes a sweet, romantic, caring, loving, intelligent, talented young man (and handsome, that too). The man he has become at the very end of these books, that’s the Christian woman would want. (Unless they are into the control-freak thing.)Ana made me really mad in the first book. But she grows to. She becomes a strong, stubborn, loving, caring,… young woman who knows what she wants (and knows how to defend herself). And it is thanks to her that Christian learns how to love without having to wave a whip at someone. The rest of the characters fit into the story and even they grow. They all have an important part in the lives of Christian and Ana and they all matter. The story was worked out really good and the books follow each other up. It’s a puzzle that is being solved throughout the book. The writing isn’t really good, but it’s not that bad. I certainly have seen worse, much worse. I really love these books and I will read them again when I feel like doing that. Are they overrated? I don’t care. Have I read better books? Yes, but again: I don’t care.Thanks for reading all this, be sure to let me know what you think. =)
