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. -Goodreads


As I reread “Fifty Shades of Grey” a few months ago, the story was still fresh in my mind, letting me see Christian’s side of the story clearer. I have to admit that I enjoyed this rendition of the story more than the other mostly because I really hated reading about Anastasia’s inner goddess, but then again I was getting irritated about Christian constantly feeling “ten feet tall”. It was definitely overly cliché. I feel that James missed an opportunity to really reveal more about this mysterious protagonist, to reveal much more about his past rather than his foul language and nightmares.

Towards the end I just kept begging for the end to come sooner. The more I read, the more I understand works like this to be drivel.

How many shades of grey do you know?
