Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey
By: E. L. James

Outer back cover: When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating. Convinced that their meeting went badly, she tries to put him out of her mind - until he turns up at the store where she works part-time, and invites her out.
Unworldly and innocent, Ana is shocked to find she wants this man. And, when he warns her to keep her distance, it only makes her want him more.
But Grey is tormented by inner demons, and consumed by the need to control. As they embark on a passionate love affair, Ana discovers more about her own desires, as well as the dark secrets Grey keeps hidden away from public view...

A friend wrote about reading this book and enjoying it so I decided I wanted to read it as well to see if I felt the same way...

I didn't like Ana at all in the first few chapters, she was just a bit over-the-top, but after a few chapters I got into the story and her, she became a character I could imagine being for most of the time, which is what I think anybody that's reading a book needs to be able to do to properly enjoy a book.

The book is REALLY detailed in the sex bits, I had heard about it being very detailed, but I didn't really think there would be SO MUCH of it!! I've heard Hollywood is currently making a film of the book, I think it's just Hollywood's excuse to make a storyline porn movie!

I still liked the book though, it was really interesting to see Ana kind of explore her limits and to think about whether or not I would be willing to stretch them as far as she did as well, I like getting "moral dilemmas" and something to think about when reading a book, even if it's just fiction.

I liked the end of the book, it's really making me curious about how the next book in the trilogy is going to start!
