I like like like this question!
I most definitely like CEO Christian Grey in the book, not that I am against the Christian Grey in the movie or anything. I definitely felt the control he has in his grasp. He is so powerful and influential and you can really feel Christian Grey the "Dominant" in the book.

I really liked Christian's character in the books. He seemed a lot more dark, mysterious, and "Grey" than the movie. When I saw the movie I was actually shocked that he didn't look/act at all like I imagined. The movie Christian actually gave me some weird vibes and he seemed more controlling and almost abusive in the movie than the book.

In the book. In the movie he sounds fake to me.
A ship is safe in the harbor but that's not what ships are for. So be the person outside the box, get out of your comfort zone, that's the person you want to be.

I would have to say neither. There is always that appeal of a damage wounded guy and being someone who can take care of them. And on the other end, some people are into dominant men. Success, vulnerability, confidence can be desirable qualities. But then not everyone is willing or able to change, and redflags are sure signs of running for your own safety.

The one in the book is a hundred times better than the one in the movie. I felt that the one in the movie didn't do him justice.

Not really. The actor doesn't resemble the Christian Grey that I imagined while reading the book. So I prefer the book version.
So do I.

They really are both so shallow and boring in personality. I prefer neither.
I agree! He's a despicable human being and an obvious abuser. So, yeah. Neither version for me.

I actually like Christian in the book, more hot and I can imagine him to be anyone I want. In the book he does a lot and wills more power than in the movie. Jamie is hot too but he’s not what I imagined
