21/10/2012Fifty Shades of Grey is the first book in the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James. When 21-year-old college student Anastasia Steele interviews enigmatic CEO of Grey Enterprises Holdings Inc., Christian Grey, she does it as a favour for her unwell roommate. Shes not expecting such a young (27 year-old) attractive man. Grey is apparently attracted to Ana as well. Ana is sexually inexperienced and he warns her off because he is, by his own admission, fifty shades of f***ed up, but ends up propositioning her anyway, to become his Submissive. This novel , set over about four weeks, is frustratingly slow moving: if 500 pages = 50 shades of Grey, then it takes 8 shades to get to the first kiss, and a full 25 shades before Ana agrees to sign the Dominant/Submissive contract (although she never actually does). 30 shades to reach a spanking. I found myself thinking, just get on with it, will you! Throughout, there is rather too much of the blushing and breathlessness and ohhh hes so hot. Ana and her subconscious and her inner goddess spend much of the novel overthinking, overanalysing every word and look. And I sometimes found Ana to be either very nave or incredibly stupid: did she really think that her experience in the Red Room of Pain, a room filled with implements designed for punishment, was NOT going to be painful? There is some humour and plenty of sex. Literature it certainly is not. Soft porn ? Probably. Romance, erotica, yes. Apart from Ana, the characters are rather two-dimensional: after 500+ pages we still dont know why Christian Grey is like this. Although Anas mother, Carla, does have some sound advice about the complexity of men. Will I invest the time to read another thousand pages of this? Not sure
Fifty Shades of Grey
07/04/2012The most amazing and intense book i have ever read -that had me mesmorized until the very last page, all the more eager for the next installment. I threw myself into christian grey and anastasia steele's world wholeheartedly, feeling a part of it all.
