Fifty Shades Finale

For those that have made it to the third book in this trilogy, it is a must read. For someone just picking up the series, I would suggest trying the first two books first because there are elements to the plot and characters that would not be understood without the context of the first two volumes. The sex scenes remain very strong and erotic, though the writing style can grate on you at times. However, if you've made it to the third book you will want to know how it ends.
Strong erotic themes, fast moving plot, engaging characters.
Writing style can be a bit sophomoric.

If you have read the first two books in the "50 Shades of Grey" trilogy then the third book in this series will bring things to a conclusion. The book begins with Christian and Ana on their honeymoon and continues once they return to their normal life, including heavy security and a threat from an unknown threat to both of them.

As in the previous two books, the sex scenes are frequent and very graphic in their detail and usually have some element tying it back to the plot/story at the time. There is a clear conclusion to the book, and one feels that these characters have gone as far as they could in Mrs. James' imagination. The epilogue looks at the first two interactions between Ana and Christian from his point of view. Here one is actually seeing what Christian is thinking, a question asked repeatedly by Ana throughout the series and it does give you an insight into the character as the story began. What might have been interesting is to have the final chapter of the book told through Christian's eyes as well so that one could see the change in his personality and thoughts, as we are clearly aware of all of the changes in Ana's thought process since the story is told from her perspective.

As a writer and someone who studied English in college, some of the writing throughout the book does make one cringe. I do not find the book as grating as many people seem to, the writing style can be a bit sophomoric at times, but Mrs. James does a good job of moving the plot along and in having you care about the characters. The sex scenes remain very engaging, even though the BDSM element is much lessened in this volume. I enjoyed the sex scenes immensely and the story is engaging, and at points I was reading the book to see what happened to the characters next and not the sex. The sex was a happy by-product of the reading, but I was genuinely interested in how the story turns out.
Follow-up commentary
I think most of us are starting to go through Fifty Shades fatigue at this point. This final chapter was included in a book group I am a member of, so I skimmed through the book again and found I still liked it. The sex scenes are good and steamy and I found myself drawn to the resolution of the plot in this book. The writing and some of the thoughts of the main character still drive me nuts, but overall a pretty good way to pass the time.

    Well, I shouldn't have read this. Had no idea they were getting married. You might want to be careful not to let out spoilers like that. D:

    If you read book two you would know. I also mentioned something about it but I did it assuming that if someone was reading the review for the final book that they had already read books one and two. I don't read reviews for books that are in a series until I read the one before it. Meaning I read book 1 THEN I read reviews for book 2.
