Another Saturday, another recap. As always, hop on over to Jenny’s blog so you get the full experience and extra content.
Something I notice the more I do Ana’s voice is that there are times where it becomes surprisingly sincere. Almost as if there’s a ghost of character in Ana that’s been trying to claw its way out and call for assistance. Can’t exactly blame her. I’d be pretty desperate to escape 50 Shades if I ever found myself trapped inside. Not before punching Christian in the nose, though. Gotta have priorities.

I feel the same way about Ana! Like, especially in her emails, there’s a HINT of a real, fully actualized person in there, trying to have a character arc. But the author won’t let her because romance!!!
The parts where she’s seesawing between ‘look at all this rich people décor’ and ‘please don’t hit me’ are all the more chilling aloud. Yikes.
