Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades #3)
Popular Answered Questions
While I do understand that people into s&m are normal people with different tastes, the author doesn't really address how his past meshed with his love for Ana in his head and how they worked through that.(less)
Welcome back, fellow masochists (or those of you who simply wish to forgo the hassle of reading this crap and opt for my poignant reviews instead). I wish I could say Fifty Shades Freed met my expectations, but...well, honestly, I don't know what the fuck that was. I don't know how I feel. I don't know what to think. The only thing I know is that, usually after finishing a trilogy/series, I'm lost. My brothers end up finding me curled up in a ball somewhere and they laugh and call me names, mos ...more
I believe one of my GR friends called this book an "exhausting melodramatic hot mess." (Thanks, Amy!) After having stayed awake until 3:00am to try to push through said mess, I would have to agree.
I really wanted to love this book. When I read Fifty Shades of Grey I was mesmerized - I'd never read anything like it. The story stuck with me for days, and I immediately bought the second book and it was much the same thing. There were little hin ...more

Things I have learned while reading the Fifty Shades series:
a. Stalking is good. (No, really...stalking is acceptable behavior! *rolls eyes*)
b. Being controlled is a turn on. (Free will? Freedom? Why would I want that? I want someone to control me! Well, sometimes, at least...because you know...there are benefits to being controlled. See below.)
c. If you have low self-esteem, it's perfectly okay to lose your virginity to a stalker, uber-controlling guy who gets off on kinky-f*ckery. Because, you ...more

Did you know that used bookstores and charity shops are drowning in used copies of FSoG?! Our local ReStore actually put out a news bulletin telling people they were no longer accepting them.
I'm guessing people are trying to dump them off on the needy because they have buyer's remorse (ME, I HAVE THIS), they don't want people to see these books sitting on their bookshelves (ME, I DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO SEE THESE B ...more

Fifty, Fifty, Fifty. I can’t get enough Fifty.
I have read a lot of mixed reviews for Fifty Shades Freed, the third novel in the Fifty Shades trilogy. This is my response: Fifty Shades Freed was EXCELLENT. How can anyone complain about more Fifty?
Reading this novel was a bittersweet experience. I couldn’t get enough; I wa ...more

This is the third and final installment of the Fifty Shades trilogy, Ana and Christian are now married and are set to live a long and happy life, or are they? With some body out there threatening them and Christian's own fucked up past, wedded bliss maybe but a dream.
Although I am not the biggest fan of the other books, I did find them strangely addicting and was quite looking f ...more

My review for the first "book" is applicable here as well, though as far as I'm aware this "book" picks up past where my summary ended. I'm still unsure of how it is possible, but the story nose dived ...more
WOW...I just absolutely love all 3 books in this trilogy. I love them so much that not only do I have all 3 books on my Kindle but as soon as I finished reading Fifty Shades Freed earlier today I went online and ordered all 3 in paperback.
Now I’m sitting here trying to put into words how much I love the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy without sounding like a babbling idiot but I don’t think that’s going to happen. So let the babbling comm ...more
Profound relief that I've finally finished this book.
Dear God it was about 200 pages too long. I swear, I thought it was never going to end. On and on and on and on...I just can't describe it.
And then, just when I thought it was over...along comes an Epilogue.
Ana and Christian frolicking in a meadow with their son, while she pregnant with their daughter.
But it's not a short epilogue. Oh no. It comes complete with a Flashback.
Oh no! Poor Ana had a scary labor and delivery!
But i ...more

Books are supposed to make you feel richer, yet I feel as though I have lost things. A good deal of my sanity, a fair number of brain cells, and whatever I had left of my dignity. All gone.
How this trilogy has managed to outsell pretty much everything is beyond me. This story is ridiculous. There is zero plot apart from the repulsive and repetitive sex. Take that away and you have a man and woman who groom each other. They might as well be ...more

Unconditional love and forgiveness.
At the heart, this is what the Fifty Shades trilogy is all about, only readers don’t see this at the onset. Instead, most of them hear about all of the steamy sex and BDSM scenes. The appeal of this series—which can be compared to the addictiveness of the Twilight series—is certainly the scorching hot lovemaking. There’s no doubt about that. This is romance at its finest, with a healthy side of ki ...more
1st book - 5 stars Loved it!
2nd book - 4 stars Liked it a lot!
3rd book - 1 1/2 to 2 stars Huge disappointment. Big old mess!
I read the online version of this story. I loved it until the story "jumped shark" (went down hill) in what will be the third book. I can only hope the author takes the time to make some huge plot changes and releases a better third book than what she produced for her online version. It was such a disappointment to what ...more
This was a perfect ending to what has definitely become my favorite series! It was wonderful to read the conclusion of this wonderful story that is Ana and her Fifty Shades. I couldn’t love Christian any more if I tried, and I am big enough to admit that I am just glowing green with envy of Ana :) - For the most part this book was not as intense all the time as the other two but what was most wonderful, after watching these two overcome some pretty major obstacles ...more
Shall we start with the good?
1. I was invested enough in the trilogy to get to the finish line and see how it all ended. And I liked the ending with the (view spoiler)[multiple HEAs (hide spoiler)]
2. The bonus at the end from Christian's POV was entertaining. I would say skip the book and just go for the bonus.
3. The emails are still fun.
Now the not so good:
1. I feel like I don't have a right to complain about too much sex in a book labeled erotica, but geez, enoug ...more
An undercurrent. By definition, it's the hidden movement of water beneath the surface. Its tug and motion are only perceptible upon submersion. Fifty Shades, is exactly like an undercurrent. You dive into the story thinking you know what to expect, only to find out once you’re in it that it’s something else completely. And Fifty Shades Freed is the riptide of currents. You’ll be swept away with a force that is impossible to escape or turn back from, not that you’d want to escape. You’ll savor ev ...more
This is how I see Christian:
It pains me to no end that I don’t have proper reviews up for these books. These were one of the first sets of books I read when I first started reading series and were a HUGE part of what inspired me to start reading and blogging again but at the time that I read them, I still wasn’t writing real reviews. I fully plan on rereading someday soon (for the fourth) time and writing out full reviews for them. But, I mean, the ...more

Dear Ms. James,
I'm going to keep this short. This was a fantastic end to a fantastic trilogy, and to be honest, I'm sad that it ended. I'm sad that they'll be no more Christian Grey. This series has truly been wonderful t ...more
After reading this book I realized what an incredible journey the author took us on. I had quite a few problems with the writing and Ana’s character in the beginning, but the author knows how to tell a hell of a tale, so I was sucked in despite those issues. There was intensity ...more
I loved both Ana and Christian in this one. Ana changed a lot. She was standing up for herself much more, but also still had her insecurities, which I liked, cause it made her more human and made me relate to her more. I mean, from my point of view at l ...more

This is a difficult review for me. I have a serious love/hate relationship with this book, the series, and the characters.
First the stuff that I didn’t love so much
If you haven’t read book 1 and/or book 2, I highly recommend it since book 3 is literally just the 2nd half of book 2. THAT is my first problem. Book 3 isn’t a book but just the continuing story of book 2. Book 2 annoyed me because there was this weird arbitrary cut off point that signaled “we are ending the story here” rather than a ...more
What a Awesome conclusion to the Fifty Shades trilogy. So bittersweet that it had to end, but Christian and Ana deserve their happily ever after. God knows they worked hard for it! IF you have not read the first two books in this series you really need to, to understand this book. They all go together and should be read in order.
"So beautiful," he says as he deftly undoes the first button. "You have made me the happiest man alive ...more
