Fifty Shades Freed is the final installment of the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L James. The story begins with Ana and Christian’s honeymoon, and their wedding is told in flashbacks. Personally, I did not like that there was not actually a scene for the wedding and the flashbacks made the beginning unclear. When the Greys return home, they fight about Ana’s work name. She feels the need for separation from Christian in her professional life, and he wants to be involved in every aspect of her life. Even though the trilogy centers around Christian and Ana’s relationship, the two cause a lot of pointless drama, and they have the same argument frequently. Ana announces that she is pregnant and Christian loses his shit.
When Christian goes on a business trip, Jack Hyde breaks into the Grey’s apartment with the intention to kidnap Ana. He is arrested for this and posts bail. Towards the end of the book, Jack kidnaps Mia and blackmails Ana into paying him millions of dollars. It is discovered that Jack and Christian were at the same foster home and Jack is jealous of Christian’s success.
My thoughts: Even though the epilogue shows the Greys as being good parents, I have a hard time believing that people so messed up as Ana and Christian could handle a family. The book has its moments but, it is, in my opinion the worst of the trilogy. Like the others it is an easy and enjoyable read, but it is very repetitive. Ana and Christian have the same fights and the answer is always sex. In the 2nd book, Ana got Christian to open up to her and he does it agian in this one.
