Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian

(Fifty Shades #4) by E. L. James

 

synopsis_thumb2

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.

5 out of 5 stars

This story was a total guilty pleasure. I got more Anna and Christian and Christian's POV just like I wanted. Loved it. I couldn't put it down!!!

I am so happy! I loved the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy so I was thrilled to get to read the first story from Christians POV. Loved the insights, getting to know his thought process and see more of a close up view with his family, coworkers, and staff. All the little elements learned were fantastic. There were also some flashbacks to his childhood which were eye opening as well, even though they were heartbreaking.

Just like book one, I pretty much inhaled this and couldn't put it down. Loved seeing everything through Christian’s eyes. His internal thoughts were so different than I thought they'd be but with his background, they made sense. I was actually surprised by a few things like his view on Kate, and his perception of Elliot. Seeing Anna through Christian’s eyes was so sweet. This definitely intensified and satisfied my love for Christian and Anna. If E. L. James wants to write Darker and Freed from his POV, I’d be all about that!

That inevitable scene at the end when the two part from Christian’s perspective was heartbreaking and gut wrenching. That killed me in the first book but knowing both sides, I felt slightly gutted.

I thought this was entertaining, intense, and hot! I personally loved it and thought it was a great addition to the series. Everything is so familiar since I know the story but I love this new perspective. And if possible, I somehow hate Elena even more now. It was everything I could have asked for. I’m a happy FSoG fan!
