by E L JamesWhen literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time.
The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wants this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her - 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 adoptive family – Grey is man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny.
Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds?
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
Book Review as on Goodreads by MilenasBookCorner
Now... what more can I say about this book that hasn't already been said by others. Not much really except that I actually liked it. Christian is definitely "50 shades of fucked up" and Ana is obsessed with the pain, signing a sexual contract & the punishments. Actually her insecurities and indecisiveness really annoyed me at times and Christian just needs to get over his issue with eating. I found myself yelling at him to "SHUT UP".
I am very curious as to why Christian has such a problem with Ana touching him. Obviously he
has gone through some kind of trauma in his younger life which has contributed to how he is now.
I found Fifty Shades of Grey to be intense, sexy and at times funny especially the e-mail exchanges which really lightened up the book. I have just downloaded book#2 and can't wait to start reading it as book#1 has left too many questions unanswered.
