About book: There are so many things I disliked about the entire Fifty Shades series that I feel badly writing a review about it. Let me start by saying that I did, in fact, read the entire series. I can remember, when it was first released, how this book was all the rage. I could hardly go two steps without meeting someone who was either in the thick of reading it or had already done so. That being said, I approached it with the kind of caution I might a live grenade. I knew, from reviews I had read and heard, that despite their overwhelming popularity, Fifty Shades was likely to disappoint me. When I found out that the author was a FanFic writer for the Twilight series who wanted to write a book about her "personal fantasies", warning bells were going off.Now, I'll admit that romance novels were a guilty pleasure of mine all through my teens and early adulthood. Literary brilliance, they were not, but I liked their formulaic structure. They were predictable and always ended happily, which at the time, were things I craved in my entertainment. Even reading these, though, I had high standards for writing quality. Dialogue had to be believable, characters had to be dynamic and realistic, and the story had to feel engaging if not outright plausible. I felt like Fifty Shades failed on all of these accounts. The only credit I can give to the books is that they dared to edge past people's typical comfort zones by pretending to explore a world of sexual fetish that makes most people uncomfortable. I say, "pretending," because at the end of the day this was an excessively smutty romance novel dressed up in a BDSM costume. Not only that, it was done poorly to boot. The dialogue is ridiculous, the characters one dimensional, and the sex scenes (because let's face it...you aren't reading it for much else) so outrageously unrealistic as to completely miss the mark on being effective. That's just the start. The characters' relationship moves at an alarmingly unbelievable pace (**SPOILER** they meet, fall in love, start dating, get pregnant, and get married in less than a six month span of time.) On top of that, the only way the author seems capable of justifying Grey's sexual fetishes is to make him severely mentally unhinged and only redeemable because he is "fixed" by his relationship with Anastasia, playing on stereotypes and lauding what can only be described as a frighteningly unhealthy relationship, rather than approaching the subject in an objective, thoughtful way.On the surface, the Fifty Shades books are a quick read, and if you can get passed some of their more glaring faults, generally entertaining. I would personally relegate them, though, to the lower end of the romance novel category. fifty shades freed is actually better than the last one as it has some action scenes into it. I am applausing for Mrs. James for the time and effort she has put into this series and to bring the topic of BDSM infront of the mainstream audience. In this , you actually feel that some kind of tale of revenge and attraction has been spurn in this.No, I don't want Ana and Christian to continue further but, the time I have given five stars to this series just belongs to the writer herself.There are some moments in the series where I actually thought that the series is worth reading but, then after a boring and long sex scene, the story would just turn out to be a sham to me. But, what ever, great work you put out their Mrs. James. The stars are for you.Besides, I have a real problem with those readers who are hating it for the sake of hating it, even when they have not even read the work entirely or they just shut the book, without making an effort to read further.You know people, writer's put real hard work in their books. So please, at least, don't even write a review, when you have not even finish the book in it's entire form.
