Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed  - E.L. James Reader beware. I am going to assume that if you are reading this, you've read the first two books. This was definitely my least favorite of the series. Perhaps I should say it was the least entertaining. Ana and Christian are married and most of the book is dedicated to stopping this threat against Christian's family and Ana. I guess it could have added some suspense to the story, but really, the threat only ever seemed imagined. Even when their apartment was broken into and Christian's sister was kidnapped, it all just seemed silly.This book also was one that would not end. I have to admit, I dragged the first one out a bit. It may not have been well written, but it was entertaining. This one just wouldn't end. There was an extremely long and creepy epilogue (I'm sorry, I don't want to read about S & M when it involves a pregnant lady and makes reference to her swollen belly getting whipped. Not my thing.) But then after the epilogue (or the p.p.s as I've come to refer to it), we get inside Christian's head and get to experience his first Christmas with the Grey's. This lasts for what seems like a long time as well. Then we come to the p.p.p.s. and it's the interview for the school paper between Ana and Christian from book one, but this time it's from Christian's point of view. I did like the very last part of the book from Christian's point of view (I'm still sorry we haven't seen a completed published version of Midnight Sun from Stephenie Meyer), but it felt super long. I almost wish E.L. James had just done a fourth book instead that was just Christian's perspective from book one. Alas, I can finally put this series to rest. I can see why people are enjoying it, but really, the characters are terrible. I didn't like any of them. I don't understand Ana at all and I think the reasons she is with Christian are all wrong. With Twilight you could at least say "well, they're teenagers, what do you expect?" but these are supposed to be adults. I don't know.I read the series to see what all the hype was about and it wasn't the worst decision I've ever made. I suggest reading this if you like erotica or just like a good laugh.
