Have you read any of the Shades of Grey Trilogy Books?
If yes, which ones and what was your opinion of them?
No I haven't, but I sure heard enough about them. I might read them when I find them at a yard sale.
I haven't; but my daughter-in-law has and loved them. I think everyone that knows her wanted to barrow them, when she finally gets them back then I'll get to read them.
I read all three of them...and thought they were awful. The story was originally written as a Twilight fan-fic and it shows. Same vapid characters, lack of character development, poorly paced, and juvenile writing style. I considered quitting after the first book but I'm the type of person who has to know how a story ends so I continued. My sister enjoyed them, however she also liked Twilight whereas I didn't.
I read the first one, but did not continue. It was a fun read, especially in the beginning, but then became pretty boring - some thing happening over and over again - and I got pretty annoyed with the abusive undertone of the relationship between the protagonist. It read very much a like a standard romance novel to me. I wrote a hub critiquing it.
Do you mean Fifty Shades of Grey or Shades of Grey? Those are two completely different trilogies about different subjects. If you means the former, I sped my way through the first one. As an overly-biased person who has read a great deal of classical literature, I did not find FSoG to be well-written by general standards. The story was good enough, though I got nothing from it. It's more of a story for older teens or young adults. The fact that sequals were cranked out so quickly always makes me suspicious; and this is typical of commercialized literature. I also think that if the NYT hadn't given it so much hype, it would not have been such a selling success.
I read all three (wrote three hubs about them)....they need to be considered as true fiction and as such are okay. I got mad at the characters more than once but continued to read anyway.
I bought them for my mom (who is in her 50's) for her birthday a month ago. She has finished all three and really enjoyed them. I have not read them and probably wont.
Not yet.. But a lot of my female friends say it's pretty darn good..
I haven't but my 87 year old mum has and she thoroughly enjoyed them. Mind you I've had a peek at her book library on her Kindle and some of the books she has on there would make even a porn star blush. Maybe she is reaching back to her lost youth. Who knows....lol
Read the first one, to find out what all the fuss what about.
Didn't like it. Would give it 1 out of 5 stars. It was an easy read though, so that's at least something.
I have read all three Shades of Grey books. They generated so much hype and controversy I just had to. I found they did not really live up to the hype though. The pros are mediocre at best, and the sex although entertaining, not stellar.
The characters are likeable and the struggle between them is admittedly a page turner. Am I glad I read them, yes. If for nothing else to understand what all the hype was about.Would I read them again, no. However I have recomended it to friends that I feel would enjoy them. I do wish the writer much luck in the future. Good for her ! It is an impressive feat what she has accomplished with a work that started on the web as fan fiction.
I read the first 100 pages and threw it away. I thought the writing was terrible and I found the whole thing quite ridiculous. I don't know what all the fuss was about, I'd never bother to try to pick it up again, would be a waste of my time.

Remember the passionate fighting between fans and anti-fans of the book-turned-movie, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'? Well, 'Fifty Shades Darker' is now being filmed - and there is still one more movie after this, 'Fifty Shades Freed'. The problem with these books is that they ARE written harmfully and...

According to various reports, E.L. James was not happy with the recent film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey", as she says that she wishes the film would've stuck closer to the book. Anyway, it's also been rumored that she got into a lot of arguments on the set of "Fifty...
