    "The series of Fifty Shades is one of the books with movie adaptations that I really follow alongside with the Harry Potter series. It's so pleasing to see Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey turn into movie characters and watch them in motion pictures. I'm one of their hardcore fans and I personally liked the Fifty Shades Darker better than the past series because they made an exact adaptation of the book. People should see the meaning behind every surface. The middle part of the movie was one of the greatest scene ever in Fifty Shades era. All-in-all, it was a magnificent film for me! "

    "Who says historical fiction has to be boring? I had this book recommended to me, and I'm glad I picked it up. It's a really interesting look at not just a fairly difficult period in American history, but also combines a murder mystery with the recreation writing. It sort of sounds like it's a #meetoo book, or something for a social justice warrior, but it's actually really well written and very clearly laid out what's going on and why. It makes a case without bleeding its heart all over the pages."

    "The Color Purple is the story of a young, black girl in the deep South where she faces prejudice, poverty, and segregation. It's a powerful story that looks deep into the roots of society as it was back then, and it really draws you in. I have to say, as someone who lives in the south it's quite the guilt trip, but it's also an important reminder of what happens when you try to put yourself above another person. Overall, I thought it was fantastic and the move adaptation is amazing. Highly recommend."

The movie was so complex that i loved the slow build, how Christian won Anastasia's trust, and the development of the characters. "

You never know how movies based on books do but you always have the impression it will be bad. Well, it wasn't! It was great!"

Although it all takes place inside a mental ward, it is highly enjoyable film that will forever force us to relive the mistakes."
