Fifty Shades Freed by E L James


It's taken me ages to finish this book --- Up until yesterday, I was only halfway through it. I had been reading it between other books for weeks now. Then, yesterday for the first time .... ever .... in this series, the book finally got ( a bit) interesting.

Characters grow, you hear less of Ana referring to her inner goddess and the book actually has a storyline. This book is the best one in the trilogy.  There is more background information on characters and the character's are not nearly as annoying as they were in the previous books.

The writing is still mediocre at best, but it has improved vastly. It's still predictable and the ending is tied up in a pretty little bow.

You do have to read the other books in order to have an understanding of the relationships between characters but it isn't really necessary for the storyline.

Grade: C+
