Fifty Shades of Grey – Chapter Two Review

Fifty Shades of Grey – Chapter Two Review

Confession time. My intention from the start was to ready each chapter separately, so that I could have complete thoughts and comments as we go forward. But, I got a  bit hooked and read chapter two right after I finished chapter one. I promise, from now on, one chapter at a time!

So…where do I begin? This chapter was a bit painful for me. I was warned about it ahead of time, actually. Their beefs? Overuse of the thesaurus (ie “foisted”, and “heart pounding tattoo” aren’t words that normally run through a twenty something American woman, not matter how bookish she is), and the start of the marathon of the phrase “ghost of a smile”. I read it twice in chapter one, and again in chapter two. I’m hoping that it doesn’t appear too much more, as it’s a little less than creative, in my opinion.

The other issue I have? Well, it’s Kate (again). I really don’t like her. She was a bit of a cow in chapter one, and this chapter it’s like she’s got some hold over Ana. Is EL James trying to show us that Anastasia Steele is a natural submissive through her cow-towing to Katherine Kavanagh? All it says to me is that Ana is a push over for her bossy best friend. The whole relationship seems really one sided and I HOPE that they develop this into a key part of the storyline, and Kate’s just not a bitch in general.

Anywho, enough of the complaining. I swear that this blog isn’t going to be a 50 Shades slam. I’m just trying to keep it real! Like I said, I got hooked on chapter one, and went straight into chapter two of FSoG. I kind of had a feeling that Christian Grey would show up in Ana’s life quite soon after their interview, and I was pleased to see him keeping her on her toes while at the hardware store. I loved the whole foreshadowing of bondage equipment with Christian’s choice of goods at the store. That’s something I plan on focusing a lot on this blog – the toys and gear used in bondage. (Although, the thought of cable ties does make me squirm a bit!!)

I doubt that, Ana. Come on – he practically offered you a job. Given that I foisted this on you at the last minute, you did very well.

We also got a hint that he may be a jealous type, which stereotypically falls in line with his controlling nature. We are briefly introduced to Paul, who affectionately addresses Ana, and seemingly increases Christian’s temperature through his actions. We also see Jose, who I’m thinking will be some kind of love rival, the way that E L James pretty much friend-zones him within the first few sentences. Jose is a photographer. Ana needs a photographer to take pics of Christian for the newspaper. Hmm. I wonder where this is going?

Chapter two did a good job of moving the story forward quite quickly. I’m just wanting this background malarkey to stop so we can get onto the great sex scenes that I’ve heard so much about!
