Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James
Synopsis from Goodreads.com
A book that started out as a simple Twilight fan fiction, but then turned into a bestseller phenomena on its own.
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.
This book contains graphic sexual content and profanity and is intended for mature, adult audiences.
My Comments :
I received this book from a friend. I was curious why this book have such a larger following. Hence I had a had high expectation on book.
Unfortunately, I have to say this is not the book for me. I had a hard time finishing this book as I did not like it much. Although I read the reviews stating that it's mild BDSM, I found that it's pretty sickening.
Anastasia Steele character seem to be weak and lack of depth. At one part Anastasia is portray as a down to earth sort of girl and at another, she was portray as wanton.
Not much "story" in this book. Mostly it revolves around sex and more sex. After some time, the sex scene gets to be a bit boring and repetitious.
I don't usually give negative review. However, this is my personal opinion about this book.
However, please don't let my opinion stop you buying this book. Many people have love this book. Reading material is similar to food. Each person have their own opinion in reading material .
