Horrible. Gave me a headache
This was the book that started it all, and the last dead tree arc I purchased. At the time it was so good, now I have long surpassed it in terms of reader expectations. This book kicked off the explosion of lady porn books that are now socially acceptable.
I think James Scott Would be a great Christian Grey http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1668673/
It was a beautiful story. I love the characters and the story they each tell. This book left me wanting more. I read this book over and over just for the love and charm of the characters. Great read.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is being released in time for Valentine’s Day. That’s a bold move, since the film is not just unromantic but specifically anti-romantic; take your valentine along, by all means, but, be warned, it’ll be like watching “Rosemary’s Baby” at Christmas

She is 21 years old and she seems way too naive for that age, I know she is a virgin but that does not make you naive and being told what Christian Grey wants from her she doesn't really batter an eyelid. Now if it were me, and I were a virgin I would be running for the hills, no matter what he looked like and however much he intrigued me.
It was quite scary that Christian stalked Ana after their first meeting, this is not normal and would be a felony, I think I would have backed off the at the first or second instance of this.
I loved the storyline though, the way I read it, it was the beginning of a love story and although Christian is fifty shades of f***** up by his own admittance it seems that Ana is doing him some good. She is changing him without trying too, and that may be why her naivety is a good thing. She wants hearts and flowers, the real deal he doesn't but he is willing to try for her.
There was a lot sex scenes but this is to be expected as it is an 'erotic' book but nothing that shocked me. Although I am not sure that the amount of sex they had on the first night of becoming a non virgin would just make her sore. I think she would be walking a little oddly too haha.
As I said I loved the storyline, the characters and the detail involved into making those characters come alive in my imagination and their surroundings too. It was a great read.
I can understand why so many copies of this book have been sold worldwide. ( )
