A Look at Fifty Shades Trilogy

Since everyone seems to be talking about E.L. James’ Fifty Shades trilogy books: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed, I also joined the wagon and read all three books in just one week time. Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy is about a rich, handsome, sadomasochistic businessman Christian Grey, with a dark past who fell for a naive, virgin, and newly graduate, Anastasia Steele.

The Fifty Shades of Grey is basically about the unusual courtship between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The second book, Fifty Shades Darker, explores more of Christian Grey’s past and on his relationship to Anastasia. Darker focuses on Christian’s and Anastasia’s efforts on making their relationship work. The third book, Fifty Shades Freed, is about the married lives of Christian and Anastasia.

After reading the Fifty Shades, I can say that it is nothing unusual compared to other romance novels I’ve read, the only difference is the inclusion of the bizarre sexual behaviour of the lead characters which may be a turn off for readers who prefer “vanilla” romance but may be exciting for inquisitive ones. Personally, I would prefer the old, sweet, romantic novels where the pain is usually emotional only not physical. I just can’t imagine me getting hurt physically that I had to skipped some parts of the books when physical pain was being inflicted to the heroine.

So, for those who have not read Fifty Shades yet, if you are not into the leather and cuffs romance, I suggest that you better go back to your ole romance novels.
