"Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy," by E L James
There has been such a lot of hype about these three books, that I was really looking forward to reading these books. I borrowed them for someone else, and first let me say, I was so glad I borrowed them, rather than purchase them.
So I guess we'll get the "sex scene's" topic over with first. Honestly by the time I got to the third book my reaction was, "Oh for crying out loud, here we go again." It was boring and totally unnecessary. I don't claim to be an expert in what they were talking about/doing, infact I had never heard of most things, but I am quite sure you could get your point accross in lesser detail!!!
If you took out the sex scenes from the three books, it would have been one book, not three books. The actual storyline if you took out the sex part of it was a tad weak and over the top. Poor student meets rich millionaire with a lot of emotional issues; he wisks her off her feet and they live happily ever after with a few "blips" along the way.
I had a couple of thoughts along the way. One was I would be so exhausted by their lifestyle, it just wasn't realistic, though I guess with all their "staff" all they had to think about were themselves, not the day to day chores, about making dinner, doing the laundry etc.
Also "the playroom," when they come to sell the apartment, I wonder how the real estate agent describes that room?
I have read a lot better books, but if are going on vacation and fancy doing some reading, well take these along to fill in some time, I guess. Me personally I'll stick to my more "normal" kind of books, but I can always say I read these ones!!!!!
