'50 Shades of Grey' Sequel Novel Could Make Women HATE Christian Grey

Say What!? 180

E L JamesThere has been speculation for a few months now that Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James may be writing a fourth novel in the series -- and based on a recent comment she made, it sounds like this new book may actually happen.

Wait a second -- don't get too excited. Because it sounds like if the new book happens, it won't be the next chapter in Ana and Christian's wild love story -- or at least not how most fans would picture things progressing. Nope, it's shaping up to be nothing more than a Fifty Shades of Grey sequel told from Christian Grey's perspective. (As in he'll be narrating this time around.)

More from The Stir: '50 Shades of Grey' Pages Are Now Being Used as Toilet Paper

When asked about the new novel, E.L. James said:

All I know is that rather stupidly I put two of the first chapters in Christian's POV at the end of Fifty Shades of Freedom. Every other tweet, if it's not about Matt Bomer or Ian Somerhalder or Ryan Gosling, it's 'Can we have Christian's point of view please?' So maybe I'll do that.

Hmm. Fifty Shades from Christian's point of view, huh? While I'm sure there are quite a few women would be all hot and bothered over his take on his sex-filled days and nights with Ana -- there's also a good chance that others will take offense to the book and see Christian as a disturbed, super-controlling a**hole who is totally demeaning to women.

Instead of living vicariously through Ana and realizing they secretly have a lot of the same sexual fantasies, which in turn makes the books a huge turn-on -- hearing what's going through Christian's head may actually turn fans off to him, and have them concluding that an average, normal, everyday sex life is perfectly fine and satisfying. Instead of lusting after Christian Grey, they'll want to get as far away from him as they possibly can. (And that sure won't help sell any more books.)

What do you think -- would you probably hate Christian Grey if Fifty Shades is told from his perspective? (Or would it turn you on even more?)

I've read the first 2 chapters (and does EL James not know the title of  the 3rd book??!!  WTH?) and I LOVED reading Christian's POV- I really want her to finish the rest of at least the first book like that!!

Yeah me too, certain parts of the books, sure we get a vague idea of how he is feeling by the things tha Ana says, I would totally love to read ihs POV.

I don't think anything can turn me off from Christian grey. Well there is one thing if he cheated. Other than that I love him and all his fifty shades. I love his controlling ways. Only because he sincerely loves her and does what he does out of love. He controls in a loving caring way. Not a mean cruel way. I could totally deal with Christian

Tina Adams

I would like to read it from Christians POV. I think most women would still see him as a hot and sexy dom.

Betty Villanueva

Knowing how Christian feels, will make the story whole.

i wrote that hearing Christian's inner monologue was something i wanted to hear more of after reading the last few chapters of 50 shades freed. So i would think this would interest some people. I would definitely dowload it to my kindle if and when Ms. James writes it.

I actually found his point of view way more interesting than Ana's. Can't wait to re-read the books!

Stacey Peterson

I am rather fascinated with Christian Grey. Can't wait to read his POV. I don't think women will be turned off him, they will get his pov which is what some readers want. I am excited.
