REVIEW : Grey (Fifty Shades #4) by E.L. James


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. 


Grey in simple words is just the same book as the first one in the series. Only difference is that we see it from Christian’s POV, which to be honest didn’t really impress me. I most definitely prefer Anna’s POV and her inner goddess was missed a lot. Her reaction to most of the thing which happened in the book were fun to read. Grey didn’t have an inner god, he just had a lot of ego. Some scenes turned out to be so boring that I had to skip through them. The only positive point that I found in this book was the little insight we get into Grey’s background and why he behaved in certain ways which he did. So in the end I’d say Grey was for a one time read but if I had to read this book again, I would pick up FSOG and not Grey. Anna was such more fun.

Stars : 3/5
