Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, "Fifty Shades of Grey" is a novel that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever. When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating.

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.

Only good for kindling
With all the hype and fuss that surrounded it I had to read it for myself. This book is drivel, derivative, poorly executed and it's original source seeps out of every page; i.e. a Twilight fanfiction website.
I can see why immature pubescent girls may enjoy this rubbish in the same way they enjoy the Twilight books and films but why does it appeal to anyone over the age of 13?
What makes it worse for me is that if a man had written this book he would have been accused of misogyny and hung, drawn and quartered in Trafalgar Square by every right minded woman.
Since when did abusive, controlling behaviour become sexy?
As a piece of erotic fiction it just doesn't work. There is barely a plot, the dialogue is clunky and is ridden with so many cliches I had to shower many many times to get rid of the stench.
I watched an interview with the writer who proudly stated that her book was being read by people who don't normally read books. She said this with a sense of pride. Possibly that is because it reads like it is written by someone who doesn't read books. In fact it reads like someone whose main source of reading material is celebrity magazines and their ilk.
The book does have one redeeming feature; it can be recycled into something worthwhile and helpful.

read the book
I was a bit apprehensive in reading this type of romance but the author made me feel like compelled to keep going not only for the erotic sessions in the book but for life moments that drew me into the book....I am looking forward to reading the other two in this trilogy

A Life Lesson For All
A fantastic adult look at a reality of life. Some things make you flinch or titter with self concious mirth, but soon you realize that this is a serious, unapologetic look at a slice of life. I love this author, she educates and entertains you.
Publishers Weekly, 2012-08-27 In James's controversial and wildly popular first-person erotic romance, co-ed Anastasia Steele is drawn into a dark relationship with a wealthy man named Christian Grey, who is seeking a submissive for his sexually dominant desires. But what Ana and Christian find instead is unexpected companionship and mutual respect. Becca Battoe, whose reading captures the spirit of easygoing, innocent, and educated Anastasia, narrates this endearing audio edition. Battoe's reading is crisp, clean, and well paced. Her version of the inexperienced Ana is full of wonder, horror, and amazement, and she nimbly handles the book's more steamy moments. For the other characters, Battoe offers up understated renderings-capturing the characters as Ana sees them. Fans of the series-or erotic fiction in general-will be delighted. A Vintage paperback.
