Oh Dear: E.L. James Is Giving Us Fifty Shades Of Grey From Christian’s POV

Did you read Fifty Shades of Grey and wonder to yourself, Hey, how does Christian feel about all this? Why is he like this? What could possibly be going on in his head that would make him be such a brooding, shitty asshole? Your prayers, dear reader, have been answered. E.L James is releasing Grey, a spinoff of her immensely popular and generally terrible trilogy, bringing us the story we’ve all heard before, but through Christian’s point of view. Awesome. Here’s what the press release has to say about why this thing is coming to life:

Readers know Christian as someone who exercises control in all aspects of his life. His world is neat, disciplined, and empty—until the moment that Anastasia Steele stumbles into his office. What is it about her that captivates him? Why can’t he forget her? He is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist.

Yes, E.L. James, I wanted to know exactly why Christian is obsessed with Ana, and I also wanted to know what made him a shitty boyfriend. Can’t wait! If you want to learn about how a terrible man became terrible, please avail yourself of the nearest bookstore on June 18th, where this thing will be thrust upon the masses, whether they want it or not.
