#bookreview – Grey ~E L James~

Book Synopsis:

In Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled hundreds of millions of readers around the world.

CHRISTIAN GREY exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty – until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair.

He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him – past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.

Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

My Review:


This first book in the Fifty Shades Trilogy told from Christians point of view is superb, I would go as far as to say this is better than the original books. The story has so much more depth to it and it allows a more in-depth look at why Christian is the ways he is. His troubled childhood and rough early start in life really tugs at your heart strings.

This book was so much more emotional than the original books, I was so moved by some parts of it that I cried. Although anyone who has read the other books will know the story, told by Christian it’s got so much more substance to it.

I love his battle with himself as he feels he should walk away from Ana as he’s not good for her but he just can’t. This grown man feeling what it’s like to be in love for the first time without realising he is in love, this book is so well written and so compelling I just wanted all the books told by Christian immediately as I wanted to keep reading.

I now understand now why the original books don’t give too much on Christians story as the author was saving it for these books!
