As a follow-up to my previous post on the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy, I can now give you my opinion without giving away the plot of these wonderful books. I feel that E.L. James did an excellent job with these books. They build on each other in an almost magical way, filled with a provocative and mature plot that is refreshing. The writing, though at times a bit predictable and redundant, is no less captivating from page one of the first book through the end of Fifty Shades Freed.
I admire James for putting a trilogy out there that is both modern and risqué. I have truly never read anything like this series and actually feel that I may revisit the books sometime in the future if in need of a solid read. I read these books over the course of a few weeks on my kindle and was very intrigued by the various escapades of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
I came to very much adore the second book, Fifty Shades Darker, because of its eloquent writing and suspenseful movement throughout the book. These books build on each other, so if you make it through the raw, exposed soul and introduction into the world of Christian Grey through the first book, you will be repaid through the second and third books.
All in all, I would say this is a must-read trilogy, that doesn’t mean it is all hearts and flowers, but it is a riveting set of books that does not disappoint, just what you need in a great summer read.
