Book Review: Fifty Shades of Grey (Trilogy)

Greetings.

I’ve been into books lately. Sure, I updated myself with new books until I saw about this book in internet telling this is a best-selling book. Fifty Shades of Grey (Trilogy). I read a brief about this book and how come people crazy over it. It was told an erotic novel or BDSM genre book. I never read some kind like this, though I like stories with raw, aggressive and unpredictable plots and languages. As I browse where to get this book, I manage to find that Fifty Shades of Grey was a fanfiction of  Twillight Saga by E.L James (the author of Fifty Shades of Grey) called the Master of the Universe. I’d said this book is an erotic mode of  Twillight. Since I am a big fans of Twillight Saga I decided to buy this book. Am currently through the Book 3.

I found this site just after the books arrived, Master of the Universe versus Fifty Shades by E.L James Comparison

This story is about the submissive-dominant relationship between handsome-like-hell-and-fucked-up billionaire Christian Grey and young-and-innocence-and-sex-mania college student Anastasia Steele…

Well, to me,  basically it’s a romantic and love story between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. With sex as the spices. I have to admit I have difficulty to finish the book because of the bad written as I have to read it over and over to make sure I get the point and hell repetition of the sex part. It’s boring me. I was expecting more than just a repetition and the sex part repeats in fast pace. The character and the story is so much Twillight. Bella is Ana, Edward is Christian, Mia, Jose, Grace, Carrick and all. The character using alike names, it’s disturbing when reading this. I was pretty impatient, I jump to book 3 in the middle of reading book 2. I found it all the same ups and downs. The story is a complete Twillight. Fall at the first sight, unconditional first love, fucked-up Christian Grey monster-like Edward, the Bella taste in Anastasia is so clearly undefined, overprotective Edward/Christian rebellious Bella/Ana, super rich The Cullens/The Grey, early marriage, unexpected pregnancy.  I’ve read Twillight Saga books for 5 times. As I know how the story it’s not a big issues for me. Everything so predictable and I lost interest. But so far I like this book better because….. it’s so human. Christian Grey. Anastasia Steele. Well, I don’t know vampire is exists. Who cares. Some novel-like love story hardly happen in real life right? Most of it only imagination.

I was never into BDSM relationship but this book makes me see other world I’ve never known. I only have a slight sight before about BDSM but I found myself confused as what written in this book, not as what I thought. I learned the BDSM relationship wasn’t like what Christian Grey do, it’s not something happen because of fucked-up earlier life. It’s more like a choice of life. and the spanking and hurting wasn’t meant like what the book told, everything meant for a pleasure between the player. We aim to please.

Still, the books interest me most as I like how the book write about Christian mental problems, well should I say psychology aspect that I am into. And how it makes an afterthought. There will always a savior to a fucked-up human. In this case, Ana is. and should a troubled person brought to at least one addiction, could be addiction to drugs, sex, pain, hard work, any negative or positive is possible.

I can’t pictured Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to play the role as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. They’re less hot. I don’t think it’s good to make this novel as a movie. I was confused which part do you want to film, the sex parts? Too much then. Will make it into a semi-porn movie like the books. Matt Bomer and Felicity Jones will fit the role, I think.

I am not the only one with this, I love how they put their thought about Fifty Shades of Grey.

Update:

Finally finished book 3. Manage to finish it. I like it though. Book 1 and 3 is my favorite. Despite the boring sex part, I like the stories. Make you dream an impossible Christian Grey with all the fucked-up he had in his life and his overprotective, possessive and kinky-fuckery. Well woman love hearts and flowers. and an Audi R8. :))

.Cheers.
