With the movie development still in the early stages and fans feeling a sense of ‘missing’ the story and characters (yearning for more) once they reach the end of Fifty Shades Freed, author E L James has been asked repeatedly to write the story from Christian’s point of view.
A recent article in the NY Daily News fueled rumors when an unnamed source reported that Ms. James “is considering rewriting the best-selling trilogy” from the perspective of Christian Grey.
We are sure the recent whirlwind of book signings, travel, and movie studio meetings has left the author with little writing time. However, Ms. James has acknowledged that her fans are requesting Christian’s point of view. As previously mentioned here, she even addressed the question during her recent U.S. book tour, leaving the (RRoP) door open by replying, “Never say never.”
While the thought of getting to spend more time with the characters we have all come to know and love is exciting, we think that if she ultimately adds to the series, it is more likely to end up being one book that expresses his story and explores his history rather than chapter-for-chapter companion novels. But to borrow a phrase… Never say never.
Don’t we all want to know what’s going on inside Fifty’s tortured soul? What he’s thinking when Ana joins him in the darkness? What he’s feeling when she brings him into the light?
Would you be interested in reading a book added to the trilogy if it was told in Christian’s voice?
