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. 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 Christian 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 Christian keeps hidden away from public view.
I was a bit late to the party where the fifty shades novels are concerned, If you remove the sex it becomes a modern day fairytale with a few twists and turns on the way. It’s the story of an innocent girl meets who meets her rich and handsome prince and eventually lives happily ever after!
The books are easy to read, although I’ve read many a review that says they are poorly written but I was so captivated by the story I didn’t notice any issues with the way they were written.
I did feel that Ana is portrayed as incredibly nieve for her age. I found that wanted to know more about Christian’s background and his early years, but I now know why not much information was given on him since the books were released from his point of view.
I found the story entertaining if a bit of a cheesy love story but I really liked it, although the end of this first book wasn’t quite what I expected.
