Fifty Shades of Grey
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.
This book is intended for mature audiences.
50 Shades of Grey was a beautiful, well written, romance novel about two characters who end up finding their way to one another. This book emerges into full depth of sexual content. Through this story, Ana gets to explore her sexuality and find out her likes and dislikes in this new adventure she encounters with Christian Grey. There are many strengths and weaknesses to this story. One strength in this story would include the depth and detail into their personalities of who they have become over recent years. The characters are completely broken down so we can have a sense of connection or sense of relatability with them. Christian Grey alone is a very complex man with a lot of baggage, while Ana is a recent graduate student who is naive to the outside world. One weakness in this story would be the pace. It takes awhile for the first intimate scene to even begin. Once the intimate scenes began, a lot of the wording became repetitive, it wasn’t more so the intimate scenes alone that became repetitive, it was Ana’s feelings and thoughts during those specific scenes. Overall, the book was an interesting read and had a very good plot to it. I would recommend this book to those who really are into books that involve a little more eroticsy than the normal romance novel.
