Fifty shades freed (Fifty shades, #3) (As cinquenta sombras livre [Portuguese])

By E. L. James:
The novels have improved from the first to this last book of the trilogy. This trilogy focuses on the very detailed description of erotic-sexual scenes and is poor in action. However, the book entertains romantic women and who like happy endings. The best of this story is the description of a personality disorder resulting from a trauma in a child, although this needs a better interpretation by a good psychologist.
Some quotes to ponder:
  • «[Christian] (...) managing a successful business is a matter of harnessing the talent of the individuals you have at your disposal. (...) I think you would do anything you wanted since you believed.»
  • «[Anastasia] I don't want to cause him more pain causing him to relive the details.»
  • «[Anastasia] – You don't like makeup?/[Christian] – I really like, but I prefer what is underneath.»
  • «Variety is the spice of life», by William Cowper.
  • «[Christian] When you grow up with an absolutely negative self-image, judging that you are some kind of rejected person, a savage that no one can love, you think that you deserve to be beaten.»
  • «[Christian as a child] I had already seen pictures of Santa Claus. But Santa Claus never brought me gifts. I was bad. Santa Claus does not give gifts to bad boys. (...) My new mom says I'm good (...). The new mom does not know. I can not tell her... but I'm bad.»
  • «[Christian] Hard work, surround myself with right people, keep an eye on them closely, doubt them, if necessary. (...) It has nothing to do with luck!»
  • «[Christian] (...) we get immense power when, in our secret ramblings, we convinced us that we were born to control the things.»
  • «The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he justly entitled.», by Andrew Carnegie.
