I have nothing against Jamie Dornan, but I prefer the Christian in the books.

To be completely honest I found ALL the books very very boring... I couldn't get into the books to save my life UNTIL "GREY" came out... I love that book because its being inside Christians head. So for me.... I love Christian in the book now that I've read his point of view. I find Anastasia Steel annoying and the typical Damsel in Distress... I love Jamie Dornan who plays Christian in the movies... I love the movies BTW... I'm a big fan of Christian in the book and Christian in the movie... I'm praying that in the last movie Anastasia grows some spine and tells that blonde chick where to go. LOL

It's always good reading books, that way you imagine what the person would be like.
when seeing the movie, you see who and what the person really is and that way you get a more personal view of what to expect,so seeing the movie, was better for me.

The character in the book, as is wont to happen, was immensely better than the movie version. Jamie Dornan is not a bad actor, but he wasn't suited to this specific role.
And in the end, we were all just humans... Drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.

I think I read the book and watched the movie by listening to people talk about it. It got really old fast.

He was much stronger and darker in the book. I didn't find any mystery to him in the movie.

I prefer the book's version of Christian Grey because it showed a more in-depth character than in the movie. Also, the movies left out soo much of the book. The story line is more enjoyable by reading the book rather than watching the movies.

I loved Christian Grey of the book because it was well written and I was a little disappointed when I watched the film. It wasn't up to my expectation.

I love Jaime Dornan, as I've scene him in other pictures and the series The Fall, but he falls a little flat for me as Christian Grey.

I like them both, but if I had to choose I would have to say I like the one in the movie. I think he did an amazing job in playing the part of Christan Grey.

I like Christian Grey in both movie and book. The character is very difficult to understand but when you read the whole trilogy you sympathize with him because of what he went through his whole life before he met Anastasia.
