E.L. James, Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades #3)


Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades, #3)Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In this third and final book of the Fifty Shades series, Christian and Anastasia once again go through the ups and downs of their relationship. Yes, I wrote almost the same sentence in the review of book two, because it is slighty exasperating.

This may just be a very clever way to make us feel -once again- the way Ana is feeling, because one thing is constant throughout the series, the telling of the story is so eloquent that one cannot help, but feel what Ana is is feeling. Since exasperation is one of the feelings, it is well conveyed, as are hurt, insecurity, deep love, and a host of other feelings, amongst them dependency, which once again blurrs the line a bit between what is allowed and what is not in their sexual relationship; and therefor putting out the question if when she is asking for what was done in Christian’s past to be done to her although she wants to save him from his past, doesn’t make Ana just a little bit of a hypocrite…

The other characters from the earlier books evolve more and are well characterized and really enjoyable. They take a greater role in the story, which also has more flesh (pun). This again contributes to describing the relationship of Ana and Christian as they find their place within their world and have to overcome some major obstacles to get to where they want to be. Be ready for some nail biting action…but

unfortunately -as much as I enjoyed this series and the ending- I found myself skimming over the sex scenes in the end as they became to repetitive; which is kind of sad, as they were originally rather inspiring…

Still an enjoyable a read, so keep reading!
