GG, Anastasia Steele! Women are fighting for power & equality, yet here you are, a simpering bestseller more annoying than Bella Swan.
Anastasia Steele is basically what happens when you let Bella Swan go without therapy.
Wait until you meet Anastasia Steele. MT Bella Swan is fiction's greatest monster.
The world needs no Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, no Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Who we need are Landon and Jamie. Real love.
Anastasia Steele and Bella Swan change my life.
Now that I'm on my 20s, the way Bella Swan fall in love to Edward Cullend and Anastasia Steele to Christian Grey is really2 disturbing
What I couldn't tell my 11 y.o. about Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele -- Fifty Shades of Vampires and Fairytales
Honestly, I don't know if I want a love like Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, or Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. 😍❤😘
"I may not be Bella Swan, Anastasia Steele or Katnis Everdeen but I'll always be your Shellyn, your Mitoy that...
and then you have Anastasia Steele, is more horny than Bella Swan/Cullen
Who is more annoying: Bella Swan or Anastasia Steele?
So, "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- I meant to post a longer comment on it, but got sidetracked... What can I say about this book? As I was reading it, I kept thinking to myself "this is like reading "Twilight," except without Edward "Tinkerbell" Cullen and the rest of the sparkly vampires." Anastasia Steele is just another Mary Sue, just like Bella Swan; she has no depth, no character development, she's a blank slate, a cipher for the reader to project herself onto. This series is basically "Twilight" for older girls (I won't say "women"). The one positive thing I can say about it (and this is really damning it with faint praise) is it's not quite as poorly written as "Twilight." However, that being said, I found it exceedingly irritating that, throughout the book, the author kept using words that were almost but not quite the word she wanted. It was like (as Mark Twain so brilliantly put it in his "Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses" essay) a sort of literary flatting and sharping by an author with a poor ea ...
My dream in life is to be Anastasia Steele or Bella Swan
Has anyone else noticed some HUGE similarities between Anastasia Steele and Bella Swan and between Christian Grey and Edward Cullen? In I'm opinion 50 Shades is a LOT more captivating than twilight but I definitely think James got some inspiration from Meyer's characters
Anastasia Steele was really created from the perspective of Bella Swan. How they are so beautiful, innocent and overly inlove to their man.
I use to want to be Bella Swan... but after only 8 chapters... I want to be Anastasia Steele!!!
"By contrast, the scenes in which Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele literally fall at the heroes’ feet and rely on the heroes’ strength"
The Fairy Tales of this new generation are not going to be about Snow white. It's going to be Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele.
I swear, Anastasia Steele is just a less whiny, more kinky Bella Swan
Thinking that Anastasia Steele is Bella Swan's annoying half sister. Worst characters ever written into existence.
I don't know who I hate more Bella Swan for being a *** or Anastasia Steele for being a ***
I wonder about the success of characters like Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele. Is this what women really want to be like?
Every girl used to want to be Bella Swan... Now we all want to be Anastasia Steele.
And you can absolutely tell it was a Twilight fanfic, too. Anastasia Steele IS Bella Swan. To a 't'.
Didn't realize until recently that Fifty Shades started as Twilight fanfiction, but it does explain why I find Anastasia Steele's petulance equally as annoying as Bella Swan's.
I thought Bella Swan was the most annoying lead female character to ever waltz across the pages of a book. Then I met her adult counterpart, Anastasia Steele. Saying she is dumber than a bag of rocks would be an insult to rocks everywhere.
All a girl wants is to be someone's Bella Swan, Katniss Everdeen, or Anastasia Steele
If you all though Bella Swan was a horny girl, you haver obviously by read about Anastasia Steele lmao
So Anastasia Steele and Bella Swan are basically the same character, why be creative when you can sell fan fiction faster than the original? Why are such popular female protagonists so weak and useless, basically teaching the future generation of girls (who can't look up from their e-readers/iPhones long enough to see the same message on MTV) that's it's fun and exciting to be completely violated by someone as long as they have good looks/money/power... I'm sure the sadistic sociopath Elsbeth (Dragon Tattoo) would have something to say about it if she wasn't busy with other women...as if teenagers weren't confused enough!
And Anastasia Steele is boring and whiney as *** and her only interest is reading books *cough* Bella Swan *cough*
So it turns out Anastasia Steele is Bella Swan 2.0. Oh yay.
My observation only 9% of the way through the book: Anastasia Steele is Bella Swan if she never met Edward.
just replace "Christian Grey" with Edward Cullen, "Anastasia Steele" with Bella Swan.. etc. Even Jose is obviously Jacob :/
Anastasia Steele is basically Bella Swan so far
Anastasia Steele is Bella Swan. I want to punch her face. you are Miss Steele 😂
I like Anastasia Steele just as much as I like Bella Swan (hint: not at all)
I have never hated a protagonist as much as I hate Anastasia Steele. Not even Bella Swan
The similarities between Anastasia Steele and Bella Swan doe...iont like (˘̯˘ )
Anastasia Steele is the most irritating character ever. Even more than Bella Swan. I despise whiny characters.
Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele are characters based on Edward Cullen and Bella Swan from Twilight.
Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele. Not heroines of our time, the antithesis of what women should aspire to? Discuss.
So embarrassed that the most popular books right now have garbage female characters like Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele.
Anastasia Steele has to be the most annoying fictional character. She makes Bella Swan look like a piece of pie.
Definitely finding Anastasia Steele more interesting than Bella Swan.
Book review: "If you ever loathed Bella Swan, Sookie Stackhouse, Katniss Everdeen or Elena Gilbert (to name some) you will definitely loath Anastasia Steele. Period." That's it. Now I have to (jump on the band-wagon) read it as I love (and love to hate) all of those characters.
How much is Anastasia Steele like Bella Swan? Would you like cheese with your whine?
"Yes. Mr. Grey is in fact none other than Edward Cullen and yes, Anastasia Steele is indeed Bella Swan." HOW ABOUT NO?
Anastasia Steele might as well be the clone of Bella Swan. Clumsy, likes to read classic lit like Jane Eyre, low self esteem,
So I can now say without a doubt, Anastasia Steele is now No.1, surpassing Bella Swan on my fictional character hit list
The Fifty Shades trilogy was developed from a Twilight fan fiction originally titled Master of the Universe and published episodically on fan-fiction websites under the pen name "Snowqueens Icedragon". The piece featured characters named after Stephenie Meyer's characters in Twilight, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. After comments concerning the sexual nature of the material, James removed the story from the fan-fiction websites and published it on her own website, FiftyShades.com. Later she rewrote Master of the Universe as an original piece, with the principal characters renamed Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and removed it from her website prior to publication. Didnt know that
Deff could see Bella Swan playing Miss Anastasia Steele.. Men fighting over her , CHECK, awkward Andy,CHECK
Jesus, Anastasia Steele is as weak as Bella Swan. Can't deal
Anyone else noticed that Anastasia Steele in of grey is basically Bella Swan...
Anastasia Steele and Bella Swan: prude weird outcasts who land impeccably handsome and sophisticated men. How infuriatingly unreal.
Anastasia Steele is a more annoying character than Bella Swan 😒
Anastasia Steele is as stupid as Bella Swan. Oh wait.
First all 'you' girls wanted to be Bella Swan/ be with Edward Cullen. Now you want to be Anastasia Steele/ be with Christian Grey. Why not try being your unique self- be flawed and special and beautiful? Both Bella and Anastasia see themselves as boring and plain. Who wants to be that? Both Edward and Christian are abusive. A man is someone who will love you without controlling you, a man is someone who will encourage your passions instead of suppressing you. Btw, not all prince charmings are filthy rich and physically perfect- imperfections are what we love about one another. or at least the ones of us who are actually in love. Stop swooning over unhealthy relationships. Or at least stop reading awful writing.
Anastasia Steele isn't quite as disappointing as Bella Swan, but Elizabeth Bennet would roll her eyes at them.
Bella Swan has more depth than Anastasia Steele. That's basically the worst insult I can give to a fictional character.
THIS THIS THIS. Trust me, Anastasia Steele/Bella Swan, no one else can figure out what he sees in you either!
I thought I'd wish I was Anastasia Steele but I despise her as much as I despise Bella Swan. I have no idea why the publishers published..
In my opinion, Anastasia Steele is far more tolerable than Bella Swan.
Anastasia Steele, you are the absolute worst. Closely followed by Bella Swan.
Is it me or does Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey remind you of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen with a bit less of self control?
Somehow Anastasia Steele is a more annoying and obnoxious literature character than Bella Swan. Ick.
And here I thought Bella Swan was an annoying lead character. Anastasia Steele, so far, may be worse.
she is way too ugly and overrated. she already ruined Bella Swan for me. Don't ruin Anastasia Steele
Ok, Anastasia Steele is the most annoying character. Even more annoying than Bella Swan. How can someone be that stupid? Who's with me?
Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Steele and Grey. A match made in unsubtle heaven. Guess it's better than "Bella Swan" ;)
I thought Bella Swan was stupid, but along came Anastasia Steele and outdid her. I wish I was back in the old days of classic lit.
The only other character in a book that has bugged me *almost* as much as Bella Swan is Anastasia Steele.
chapter two: In which we realize that Anastasia Steele is exactly like Bella Swan and I start to regret reading these books.
Anastasia Steele is the more annoying version of Bella Swan. I didn't think that was possible.
Yes, I still have not decide who I hate more, Anastasia Steele or Bella Swan.
Noo!! I have taken her ruining my Bella Swan but I will not take her ruining Anastasia Steele. Worst idea EVER!!
I'm getting really sick of characters like Bella Swan and Anastasia Steele
I expect he only sparkles metaphorically too. Anastasia Steele is actually a WORSE name than Bella Swan. Dear god.
Anastasia Steele and Bella Swan are like too dumb unrelated lost sister who are innocently in love with the devilish flawless man.
I mean seriously, how pathetic is Anastasia Steele, I'm sorry, Grey? She seriously has no backbone & makes Bella Swan look good
Why is the female main character in a book ALWAYS so beautiful? Bella Swan, Elena Gilbert, Anastasia Steele ... *sighs*
And also, screw Bella Swan. I want to be Anastasia Steele! Lol ☺
I know, they were edited out to be fit for publishing. Bella Swan changed to Anastasia Steele, etc
Wow - I didn't think it was possible to create a character less likable than Bella Swan until I met Anastasia Steele.
