Fifty shades of grey EL Elliot
« on: April 01, 2012, 05:41 PM »
I have just finished reading the trilogy of Fifty Shades of grey and I must say it is maybe the best I have read in a long time . The characters are beautifully presented , and you are able to get into their emotions and feel as they do :)
The story is WOW ... It touches bdsm but in a way it brings a new light into the matter  ... It also gives a lot of ideas to spice up our daily life :) I would recommend it to every woman , it will open your heart and open your mind as well ;) and why not to men as well so they can learn some new tricks :)
After reading these books there was nothing I tried that kept my interest so far :)
Please tell me your opinion too
Hugs all , be happy :)

It's similar in that there is a very alpha male/dominant billionaire and his beautiful submissive, but Eva is not the naive virgin that Ana was.

Both Gideon and Eva are flawed, damaged, and strong in their own ways.  It's powerful and a roller-coaster of a relationship but not so heavy in the BDSM.  Their's is just a strong and emotional relationship.  I love it. 

Another series that is fantastic but way more into the BDSM (if that's what you're looking for and/or are into) is the "Up in the Air" series by R.K. Lilley, which is also a trilogy and is already complete, whereas the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day still has one more installment due, which will be published June 4, 2013.  I am nearly done with the third book, "Grounded" by R.K. Lilley.  It's so good.

I thought the writing of Fifty Shades of Grey, Darker and Freed totally sucked. It was like a 5 year old wrote it.  Grey.....Christians POV and Darker Christians POV was written by a totally different person. Those 2 were well written.

Well, I was too young to read it at first, so I discovered it when the second movie was released.

I first watched the movies, and where I didn't like the first, I liked the second, so I decided to read the book, just to know the end. And, truth be told, I liked the books, but I found Ana was letting Christian go with too many things. I mean, I don't like when the first character is too docile, and Ana was like a lost puppy to me.

But a year later I found myself re-reading it, this time with the first book too, and I liked it way more. I don't know if it was because I grow up, or because I read the first book, but I now understand why Ana wasn't so outspoken: that's because she choose her battle, she couldn't fought about everything every time with him.

I often found myself sick of the people who criticise the book, when they didn't read it, or when they don't like the genre of the book to begin with. I mean, even if it's a very popular book, if you don't like the subject, but you read it anyway, you can't really complain.
Now, I think that yes, it's not the best book around, and that's not what we ask him to be.
But that clearly is not a true BDSM story. Yes, they like a little kink :040: in their relationship, and Christian clearly can be dominant when the situation ask for it, but that's not permanent.

P.S.: By the way, the Shadowlands series by Cherise Sinclair is the best series on the lifestyle that I ever read, and I recommend it if you wan to explore the subject :) ;D  :P :P
