Fifty Shades Darker
Why, for the fun factor, of course! Bad writing tends to make me giddy because I'm much better at being a horribly judgmental person critic than I am at Reading books this awful actually brings a certain amount of joy into my life.
Plus, I had a few people tell me they couldn't wait for my reviews of the second and third Fifty books. Alas, here I am. Unfortunately for meFifty Shades Darker wasn't quite as bad as as its predecessor. Don't get me wrong, it was still awful, but the rage-inducing badness of the first wasn't quite as powerful here.
Or maybe I've built up a bit of an immunity. No matter, it's still bad, and I'm still going to have a hell of a lot of fun writing about it. Now, the first installment in this series made me so angry, I could barely write a coherent review. I'll be using more source material this time around but don't worry, there will still be gifs. Very first sentence: "He's come back.
Mommy's asleep or she's sick again. We begin with a prologue of Christian Grey having a night terror regarding a childhood memory. I simply couldn't help laughing when his mom's pimp treated me to six utterances of, "You are one fucked-up bitch. After the prologue, we're right back in Anastasia's head it's a good thing there's room for us in there. We're treated to a chapter of her wallowing in depression and self-pity while wasting away because Christian isn't there to remind her that eating is a fundamental aspect of survival.
We're also introduced to Ana's new job at SIP, a small publishing company, and to her new boss. Jack Hyde. He's a villain! It isn't at all obvious, either. Total surprise.
After what seems a rather generous amount of whining from Ana, she and Christian are back together. All that screwed-up physical violence forgotten.
It's so sweet, too, their reunion. Christian asks Ana why she didn't safeword in the midst of his assault which occurred at the end of the first bookand she admits that she was overwhelmed and just Call me crazy, but to me, this is understandable. You're not used to this consensual punishment thing not to mention the fact that you never explicitly consented in the first place and your man is enjoying viciously turning your ass into a slab of raw beef, and you forget there's an easy way out of it.
I get that. Christian, not so much. He asks how he's ever going to trust her again. And Ana? She apologizes.

Was I angry when I read that? Shit, yes, but thankfully, things ended up taking a turn. Ana sort of starts to stand up for herself and Christian begins to catch on that he's a total d-bag and maybe he should tone it down. This is where the story changed for me.
It went from all-out rage-inducing like the first bookto incomprehensible hilarity. I had thought the first line was good, but in comparison, lines like this are pure comedic gold: "I want you, and the thought of anyone else having you is like a knife twisting in my dark soul.
50 Shades of Grey Reading, Chapter 2
He's crazy with a side of fries and he utters the worst romanticisms this side of a Nicholas Sparks novel. The sex scenes are tamer in terms of their content, but they're also extremely limited in terms of content.
The same thing happens every time; Christian flashes Ana a "look", during which his eyes darken he might have a serious ocular conditiondesire "pools in her belly", some undressing occurs, then there's nipple teasing, he blows, sucks, nips, licks, whatever, and she is usually pretty passive, save for her gyrating hips, which were once "caught up in his cool vanilla spell" I couldn't make this shit upand then Ana explodes. Why is this happening? She might be anemic.
She should get that checked out.
There was one really gross sex scene, though. The ice cream scene. Christian is dripping ice cream all over Ana, and I was going, "Ewwww! Oh, hush. Whatever, that's not the point. The point is, this doesn't sound right: "He shifts lower and starts eating the ice cream in my belly It's got hold of Fifty!
It's Fifty shades of viscera!! Aaaanywho, where was I?
