Each book is worse than the one that preceeded it. I literally threw it out the window when I finished it. Seriously. This is like the "Troll 2" of books - fun to read for a laugh but TERRRRRIBLE

Unfortunately I had to skip around with this book. Yes, this book is a guilty pleasure; however, being the 3rd book it is VERY BORING. Ana whining about the same things, tangling her fingers and biting her lip. I didn't like this character from the beginning and hoped she'd grow on me and she didn't :(

Personally, the trilogy is pretty addicting and its not too bad either but I would say this one did have its dull moments. The Fifty Shades books are VERY fictional but the random events were quite intriguing. It's not the best piece of literature but I personally enjoyed reading them-definitely a guilty pleasure!

I feel this was the best out of the three books. It was not the best written book, but the author did keep the story interesting.

Enough already with the 50 shades. If the library buys another one in the series... I'm gonna spank somebody!

Agree with previous commenter that Anastasia is a moron, I couldn't figure out why anyone would want to be with her. Pseudo psychology on why Christian is the way he is. Completely retrograde "plot" with experienced rich man bossing around young impressionable twit, er, girl, and not necessarily in a fun way.

I don't understand why this series did so well (i only read it because of the hype and i kept hoping -in vain-it would get better). Certainly didn't make the bestseller lists for the writing or plot. There is plenty of better written romance and erotic fiction out there also.

ElJames is an awful writer. She actually wrote the story as fan fiction for Twilight Series. Its not her story line - she copied it. The characters are the same as Twilight. She lacks imagination and should probably pick up a thesaurus. These books also teach young women a horrible concept that their self worth is only as good as the man in their life says it is. Fifty Shades and Twilight have set women's rights back 100 years. But even if you disregard the horrible message it gives to women, the writing is awful. Terrible. Ghastly even. I read it because it was on the best sellers list. I now realize this is the part and parcel of "mommy porn" and shouldn't qualify as literature at all. I am not saying it should be censored, I am saying - ELJAMES CANT WRITE. Look beyond the shock value of the sex and see how truly bad her style and technique is. She is a bad writer.

To the last 3 reviewers who essentially said this book was junk - You are right on! Touche (pronounced touchey). I endured all 3 of these books - because of the hype - never again. The main character Anastasia is a moron, a slap to all modern women. Christian is a weak man who treats her like a simpleton. I hear they are making book 1 into a movie - for sure I will not be wasting anymore time or money on this one. Story, what story?

Amazing ending!!! *****
