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, most of which are variations of "emo douchebag" because I'm all like

I can't help it. If I've invested enough of myself into a story to read more than one installment, it generally means I liked it (or at least something about it). That wasn't the case with the Fifty Shades trilogy. I went into Fifty Shades of Grey knowing full well I would probably hate it, and I wasn't wrong. In fact, I think I may have underestimated that book in terms of how thoroughly it would infuriate and disgust me. I considered not bothering with the next two installments because I was certain it wouldn't get any better. Look, I know there are those of you out there who think that it did get better, but I'm not talking about the story. I mean, I don't think that improved much, either, but the point I'm trying to make is that E.L. James is a terrible writer, technically and artistically. As a photographer, I can tell you that sucking ass in both categories won't get you far. Certain people will give you a certain amount of latitude one way or another, sure, but if your composition is badly placed, taken at the wrong time of day, crowded, confusing, and out of focus....well, you get it. Needless to say, I wasn't even halfway through Fifty Shades Darker before I started getting bored, but I trudged on and it wasn't much different from any of the boredom I've experienced before.

Then I started reading Fifty Shades Freed. I can honestly say that I had no idea this kind of feeling was even possible. I've never had a book so thoroughly turn off my desire to read before. Ever. I would read a page here and there, then turn my Kindle off and get online. There wouldn't be anything to do online, and I'd sit at my desk thinking, Oh, I should really finish that book. But then I'd just keep surfing the internet. To be honest, it was because every time I even thought about reaching for my Kindle, my brain did this:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Should we talk about what happened this time around? OK...

Honeymoon. Christian throwing a tantrum. Ana's boobs get marked up in retaliation. Drama, drama, drama, corn, some cheese, sex sex sex, lots of whining, Christian being clingy, Ana trying to assert her independence, blah blah blah. It reads exactly like the other two books with its repetitive wording and infuriating platitudes, and because of this it suffers far more than the other two books. I was tired of reading this shit. The only thing that set this one apart was the utter weirdness of a few of the scenes. Like Christian marking up Ana's titties after she goes topless on a beach in the south of France. Yeah, it happens. It's OK, though. Ana gives him a pass because, emotionally, he's stuck in adolescence and this apparently gives him free reign to do as he likes with impunity. She's angry at first, sure, but she forgives him. Even after he has the balls to say, "Well, you won't take your top off again."

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The temerity of this character is astounding. E.L. James has managed to create one of the most blatantly antagonistic sociopaths I've ever seen, yet women everywhere are gobbling it up like he's the best thing since the vibrator.

But nothing really happens in the first 90% of the book except a lot of emotional manipulation. Ana and Christian play games with each other's emotions and genuinely seem to have absolutely no clue how to communicate with another human being. It's apparently all good, though, because the sex makes up for any lack of connection they should have. During one sex scene, Ana thinks, "We still have this. We'll always have this."

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

No. No, you won't. Your sex life may still be fulfilling after five, ten, or even fifteen years, but it won't be the same. No, not at all. And if you think for one second that sex can make up for the emotional connection and teamwork a marriage requires, you're going to be sorely disappointed. Look I'm all for fantasy, but I guess I like mine tinged with a little more reality than this. Friendship is the foundation of any solid relationship and without it, you're just bumpin' uglies until it gets boring.

Arguably the best thing to come out of this book was the fun I had discussing butt plugs with my sister-in-law. Yes, there's a sex scene involving a butt plug, and yes, it's both hilarious and disturbing, if for nothing else but E.L. James' refusal to use the word “ass”. Ana is always using the words 'behind' and 'bottom' to describe her other “down there”, and those words do not mesh well with the concept of an anal sex toy. I'm sorry, but hearing about how Christian inserted a butt plug into Ana's 'bottom' made me both uncomfortable and highly amused. Or when he inserted his finger into her 'behind'. No. No. As a child, you have a behind or a bottom, but once you hit about 14 or so, it's your butt or your ass. Only occasionally can the other words be used in reference to an older individual and be gotten away with.

As amusing as all that was, however, it didn't hold a candle to the things that went on when they were finished engaging in anal play. Just to be clear, I don't have anything against people who find pleasure in the anus. If that's your thing, hey, more power to ya. So I don't have a problem with the sex scenes themselves. However, when Christian fingered Ana's arsehole and then didn't wash his hands...yeah, I was a little grossed out. They're cuddling and everything afterward and on a constant loop in my head was, “poopy finger, poopy finger, poopy finger....poopy....finger!” My sister-in-law said she was wondering if he was going to make her suck on it like he did every other time he jammed his digits into her nether regions.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

But wait, there's more!

Ana asks Christian who cleans the toys (this is after they've used the aforementioned butt plug), and he informs her it's either him, a submissive, or Mrs. Jones.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mrs Jones, the hired help. She's a maid and a cook, for pete's sake, not a wall-washer at the local gentleman's club! God! Can you imagine taking a housekeeping job with some 27-year-old douche canoe and all you're expecting is dusting, vacuuming, cooking, etc., and the next thing you know, he's handing you a bowl of used butt plugs? Or maybe he's not even handing them to you, he just mentions that, hey, that mysterious almost-always-locked spare room could use a good cleaning and you walk in to discover not only that you've stumbled into some kind of David Lynchian porn den, but you've also been greeted by the smell of stale sex and ass. And oh! There's a bowl of dirty butt plugs on the sideboard!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mr. and Mrs. Brady may have had their freaky naughty time, but I highly doubt they were crass enough to make Alice clean up after it.

So then Ana takes the butt plug (yes, I'm still on this) and washes it off in the sink, then vaguely wonders if it needs to be sanitized somehow.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Well, Ana.........................................I'm thinking yes. Yes, it should probably be subjected to some sort of sanitation process. But that's just my opinion.

When you read scenes like that over the course of several books, it really comes as no surprise when you discover that Ana has missed several appointments with her gyno and apparently completely forgotten about her birth control shot. You know where this is going.

Christian is going to fuhreeeaaak.

“Christian, I'm pregnant.”

And at first, Christian's all like

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

But then he's like

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Then he storms out and is never heard from again.

Ha! I wish 'cause that would've been the end of the story, and it would've served Ana right for being such an idiot. But alas, he returns and there's nothing to be done for it except more melodrama. He comes home drunk and Ana finds out he saw the “bitch troll” pedophile again, and she feels betrayed, and yadda yadda. So they fight, and this is the only time in any of the books that they actually have a raging screaming match, and yeah, it was about fucking time it happened, but even the fight is tainted by Ana's ridiculous assertions that if Christian touches her, he'll just get his way because her traitorous body will succumb to him.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Christian spends the entire book shutting Ana up with his penis.

So then the ending happens. Something about Hyde kidnapping Christian's sister or some shit. Ana saves the day. Funny. No, it really is 'cause the girl's dumb.

Well, when that shit's all over, we get this weird-ass epilogue wherein Ana asserts that she thinks their in-utero daughter "likes sex already" because she's dancing around in her mother's womb after...sex? I guess so. There isn't a sex scene, so not only is this remark fucking weird, it's also oddly misplaced. Then Christian sucks popsicle off of his son's fingers.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What is with E.L. James and the finger sucking?

(Edit: A commenter brought to my attention the fact that there is indeed a sex scene before the aforementioned conversation about the baby liking sex. So I double-checked and yes, there is a sex scene right before. The confusion came about as the direct result of E.L. James's inability to maintain a coherent timeline.)

After the epilogue, there's even more pointless drivel. The beginning of Fifty Shades of Grey from Christian's perspective! I can hear the collective squee and the panties droppin' and it kinda makes me wanna choke a bitch. But that's not even the worst of it. No, the worst is that it ends right as Christian's leaving the hardware store, and as the narrative comes to a close, the reader is treated to this: "That's all...for now."

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Please, someone break her hands. Do it quickly. Might as well cut out her tongue, as well, so she won't be able to dictate her nonsense.

I think one of the best blurbs for this series (and this installment in particular) would have to be something my older sister said about it after I told her there's a Happily Ever After ending:

"Maybe she'll write a fourth book in which, after having three kids, being isolated, and losing her job, he finally hits her and the cops get called, leading to his arrest. She leaves and takes half his damn shit plus child support. 'Cuz after three kids and several years, "down there" ain't gonna drip at the sight of him anymore." - Kimberly Brown

Harsh and bitter? Perhaps, but that's reality. Like I said before, it would be nice if we could have a little realistic fantasy (it's not an oxymoron if you know what I'm talking about). Christian Grey might have been a desirable character if....well, if he weren't Christian Grey.

To be honest, I'm disappointed in this review. I just can't seem to muster the same amount of enthusiasm as before. Or even come close. All I know is that I tried to write this twice before, but lost it both times due to computer error, and I took that as a sign that I shouldn't over-think it. Maybe this review reflects the book itself; haphazard and drained. Whatever the case, the only burst of energy I got during this book was at the end. When it was done. It should come as no surprise that my reaction when finishing this book was not despondent depression. Far from it. When I read that last word and knew I could finally, finally walk away from this trilogy, I felt...

Yeah. It was that good. It was "taking a giant crap after being constipated for a week" good. Or "getting laid for the first time in years" good. I.felt.so.free.

The only thing good about the Fifty Shades trilogy is the moment it finally ends.

I cannot WAIT for this review. :D


message 2: by Rachel (BAVR) (new)

Rachel (BAVR) Yes. Yes, I would have to agree with you that butt plugs should be sanitized after use. Thank god Ana isn't a real person. How did that lady ever graduate from college? I even feel bad for the fictional characters who have to drive on the same roads as she does. No way she got her license without bribing the instructor!

Excellent review, Katrina! :D

Traveller Sigh. I have no words.
Good work with the review and congrats on managing to finish this drivel.

I can't make progress with the first one that I got out of curiosity, beyond quoting random bits of it to random people out of sheer perversity.

Just scary that it's so popular... I don't know what else people who love it usually read that this is so good in comparison to... the mind boggles...

Well, regurgitating information from a textbook is easier than actually thinking, so I guess it's possible someone as dumb as Ana could get a college degree. Still surprising, though, since I have no idea how she....hey, wait a minute, remember in the first book how completely computer illiterate she was? Did she write all her college papers shorthand? *shaking my head*

Thanks, I had a rough time with this one. This was my third attempt at writing a review (I lost the first two), and I just couldn't seem to muster the same amount of enthusiasm for the process as I did when I wrote reviews for the other books. I guess it rather mirrors the books themselves. This one was just pointless, boring, nap-inducing ridiculousness.

Thanks, it was a tough one. Especially since I've been running on 3 1/2 hours' sleep for the past 10 hours. The book drained me all by itself, so writing a review about it in this condition is sort of surreal.

I've taken to saying "Fifty Shades of (fill in the blank)" whenever the mood strikes.

I've seen a lot of Fifty Shades fans who said they "normally don't read"...that explains a lot right there.


message 6: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn I actually saw a girl's name on Goodreads which said, I forgot her real name so I will use mine, "Kathryn (Mrs. Christian Grey)"....Are you serious? After reading your reviews, I definitely A. Don't need to read the book. I think I got everything I need to understand what happened over the whole trilogy. You definitely took one for the team it sounds like. :) Thank you. :) B. Christian Grey does not sound like a desirable man....at all. I just don't get some people...*shakes head* Oh well...give this series a few months, people will have moved on and forgotten about it. Or, one can only hope. ;)

::facepalm::

I was going to say something along the lines of, "If Christian weren't (insert biggest problem here), he might be a desirable guy." But then I started listing all the things that turned me off about him and realized the only thing left was that he's a good-looking guy. Yay shallowness.

I'm very happy I was able to spare at least a few people from this travesty of "literature" (I really hate using that word when referring to this garbage).

I really hope this series is forgotten soon. What's strange is that some Goodreads friends of mine told me they've forgotten most of what happens in the books, almost like their brains are trying to protect themselves. Well, I was forgetting things that happened in this book before I'd even finished reading it! It's like an automatic defense mechanism; your brain knows something ain't right and it goes into Defcon 10 and starts erasing shit, lol.

If anything could inspire the creation of a new shelf, it's this trilogy.

You're not a masochist. Be grateful for that.


Katrina Passick Lumsden I wanted to share this review by Francine with everyone because it's hilarious and covered quite a few things I'd blocked out (like the orgasm denial). If you like it, give her some props, she deserves it!

That's why I don't think I'll change it. A part of me wants to refine it, polish it, put in more book details, but another larger part of me is screaming, "No! Leave it! It reflects what the book did to you!"

Regardless, I don't think I have the energy to tweak this review any further.

I definitely need literary therapy now. I really want to read a good book, but I find that I'm book-shy right now. I'm scared to even try.

You're very welcome, my sacrifice was worth it to get praise like "10 poopy fingers out of 10", lol.

Shelly Holy f*cking hell - I just about died reading your review! So awesome! And you're right, who ever said it above, about your mind blocking the shit out, because I totally forgot about the butt plug stuff.

Yes! I forgot about the orgasm denial. Remember that part? I was livid when I read it, but come review time, I was drawin' a blank.

Thank you very much, and you're quite welcome:)


Shelly No, I don't remember the orgasm denial! lol - my mind is protecting me. I liked the first book - it's like it's got some cloaking device, the BFF and I were talking about it. She loved it at first, and now we're all like What were we smoking!!! We honestly don't remember. Plus, I had just quit the most terrible job in the world, so I'm gonna put a lot of blame on that. Craptastic job made 50 shades bearable. . . scary how awful that makes the job sound!! shivers

Wordsmith "To be honest, it was because every time I even thought about reaching for my Kindle, my brain did this:"

You had me laughing out loud at when writing of your Brain on a Kindle twinned with the perfect Vid.

So? I got a bit gut-clenched when I went to paroxysms of wheezing when? Why the butt-plugs, what else would do it?

So. I said slow down now. Pace yourself or you'll find more trouble than she did with that horrible, villainous Christian. Or worse, the wannabe writer. But noooo, I was in too deep, what are few alveoli constricted compared with THIS? Who needs air, anyway?

So...around poopy fingers I was scrambling for my inhaler, lest your review rendered me unconscious. I wasn't DONE yet! Yep, twas the poop did me in.

So. I puffed and inhaled. Deeply now. Ahhhh, all better. Back to reading. My breathing didn't last much longer. Let me tell you, girl, you are one wicked, dangerous reviewer. I almost didn't make it past poor ole Alice.

So, I rattled through somehow, on down to the very end. Glad I did too. Just released a life-time high one night count of eight gazillion endorphins, I haven't felt this good in many a moon.

I simply had to tell you, Katrina, Fifty Sparkling Shades Of Brilliance!

Jensen Ackles has got to have the most expressive face I have ever seen. I know everyone calls Jim Carrey rubberface, but to me, that's just too much. Jensen's emoting is damn near impeccable and translates so well to gifs, lol.

Dinjolina Wow. Another super review, darling!

And for all of you that are going to miss Katrina’s fun ride trough the Fifty Shades universe should go and check out her reviews of the Moreno brothers by Elizabeth Reyes! ^^

Why, thank you, Dinjolina!

Whoa! Total change of subject! Talk about a non-sequitur!

Oh, sorry, I was in Anastasia mode for a moment.
