Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L James

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.


Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.


Except for it being in first person it was good. It had all the emotions you could feel all rolled up into one book. I hated it and I loved it. But it was not as erotic as i thought it was gonna be. Maybe it's just me, but with all the hype, I was expecting more. Compared to other erotic books i read, it was vanilla . It had some bdsm but the scenes only lasted maybe 2 paragraphs if even and weren't at all in great detail. It was only part one of this book. It was long and I kept reading cause there were secrets in the book I was dying to know but they were never reveled as of yet. I am interested in the other E. L James books and will continue along with the series when they are out. But it definitely was weirdly written. Its hard to explain....In order to know, you'd have to experience it. I do recommend it but just know, it is written different then you might be used to. But just keep reading :)
