I know I’m a little outdated but I’ve just read Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker. I’m currently still in the process of reading the final sequel – Fifty Shades Freed. Well, for starters, I’m REALLY into the story. I’ve been so emotional these past few days because I’m utterly hooked to the story. It’s so unique because it’s different than all the typical novels these days – and also, pretty… exotic. Yeah. That’s pretty much the right word to describe it.
The story is basically told in first person POV with Anastasia Steele as the main character. I’ve got to admit, she has one interesting life going on for her especially after meeting the young, handsome to-die-for billionaire, Christian Grey. In spite of him being a sadist and all, he’s actually really broken inside. One of the reasons why he does what he does – BDSM, if that’s what you’re wondering. But what really hit me right to my core, is how Ana is able to
change save him for the better; how she’s able to pick up all the pieces of his shattered soul. Ana is a really brave and bright lady to be able to cope up with Christian, especially when he finally experienced his tipping point when she left him for the first time after letting him spank her for his own satisfaction. It hit her at that moment that she couldn’t wouldn’t want to have to deal with this even if she’s deeply and irrevocably in love with him as it is. This made Christian open his eyes and realize that Ana is different. She was the only, and possibly the first, person who dared to stand up to him.
In the second sequel, however, has more of the sugary sweet stuff. After Christian got back together with Ana, he truly made so much effort to keep her by his side. This is also where he realizes that he loves her as much as she does. The peak point of this second sequel is when Grey’s 6 years child (15 is still a young age) molester who he still kept in touch with, Elena (or Mrs. Robinson), confronted Ana when Grey announced that he and Ana are engaged in Christian’s family’s residence. Grey’s family, adopted, having found out of Elena’s affair with Christian, kicked Elena out. I simply loved the end of the book where Christian proposed to her in the boathouse near his family’s house. It was so touching and so romantic I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s like, when you read, you get to imagine the whole scene live and happening; it’s like you’re the main character itself. My most favorite quote :
Anastasia Steele. I love you. I want to love, cherish and protect you for the rest of my life. Be mine. Always. Share my life with me. Marry me.
This part has got me so good.
And the fact that the official Fifty Shades of Grey movie is coming out on the 13th of February 2015, I just can’t even contain my excitement. I totally approve of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey (he definitely has the look and aura of the character) and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. I can’t wait to finally be able to watch this story come to live.
