Grey (Fifty Shades #4) By E L James


Book Description:

See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey.

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 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?

This book is intended for mature audiences.

My Thought’s:

Having read all the first 3 Fifty Shades books I was very intrigued when I heard that the author was bringing out another book. The Fifty Shades series had left me very interested in Mr Grey and was hoping that in this new book I would be finding out more about Christian and his background before he met Anastasia.

Unfortunately it seems that E.L James has decided that she will be writing another three books repeating the same story but from Christians perspective.

There are small snippets of Christians past and it’s obvious that we are going to have to read all three books to find out more about his past and even then I don’t think the author will be going into any great detail which is a shame.

I personally think it would have been a lot better to dedicate this book solely to Christians past. Reading Grey I got bored of going over the exact same story, knowing exactly what was going to happen. Where as in the first three books I think Christian came across as quite mysterious, knowing that all he basically things about is sex and really not much else wasn’t what I wanted to read. I know the book is mainly about sex but I was hoping there was more to him than that but alas he came across as very shallow and manipulative.

Grey has left me feeling like I have been basically ripped off. If you haven’t read the other three books then Grey probably will be an ok read but to pay for a book with a story I have already read I personally wish I hadn’t parted with my money.

Sorry but I won’t be buying anymore in the series.

I have awarded this book 2/5 stars.

Grey is available to purchase from Amazon.


    1. its a shame Linda, i will openly admit to overall enjoying the fifty shades series and as i didnt like the film i had high hopes for the book but she just seems to be dragging the whole fifty shades thing out now.
