Exactly eight years ago the first 50 Shades Of Grey novel was published and took the readers by storm, and since then the Fifty Shades erotic trilogy has sold around 150 million copies. Now, author E.L. James has come back with a new romance story in her latest novel The Mister.
Here’s given a little gist which you might want to know about the book.
The Mister is set in present-day London. Maxim Trevelyan is a handsome English earl who is also a model-DJ-photographer-composer who has, of course, got many lovers around. When Maxim loses his elder brother, he inherits his family's noble title and wealth along with a heck of responsibilities. But while he finds it troublesome to step-into this new role, his other big challenge is to fight his growing desire for a young woman, Alessia Demachi, who is the new maid at his home. Beautiful and musically gifted, Alessia is an Albanian immigrant who fled to England after escaping getting hitched to a criminal which was arranged by her father, and then being sold by sex traffickers. While Maxim's longing for Alessia reaches depth, he himself hides dark secrets of his own.
This is what famous critics had to say keeping in mind the popularity of fifty shades:
Sophie Gilbert wrote for TheAtlantic.com, "James is clearly—and self-confessedly—a fan of romance novels, and The Mister seems to evoke the formula of historical romances of yore, when men were strong and complicated (and rich), and women were delicate and soothing (and helpless). But the genre itself moved on a long time ago."
Sian Cain writes for The Guardian, "EL James's The Mister – turns out books and sex can be this bad."
Dana Schwartz writes for EW.com, "The Mister is E.L. James’ version of a straightforward romance. And where there are some genuinely fun moments in the Fifty Shades of Grey series — say, Christian broodingly saying, “Because I’m fifty shades of f—ed-up” — The Mister is unoriginal and dull from the syntax up."
