Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James

Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

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.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.


 I give Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James, 5/5 stars for being beyond all my expectations and extremely well written. 

My feelings on Fifty Shades of Grey*skip this is you want to read my review* 

Let me start out by explaining that if you haven’t heart a thing about this novel, you are seriously living under a rock. Fifty Shades of Grey is the new hype right now in popular culture; from skits on Saturday Night Live, to Ellen Degeneres trying to narrate the book, this novel is being talked about everywhere and by everyone.

However, I can honestly say, half the things I have heard about Fifty Shades of Greyare WRONG .

That’s right, wrong. The things people say when discussing Fifty Shades of Grey , had me removing it from my TBR list on many occasions. In order to prevent anymore scare tatics, let’s clear things up:

1.No Anastasia is not hung from a ceiling and whipped with a pancake maker. - A pancake maker? 

2.Christian does NOT turn Anastasia into his dog (resembling the movie Centipede). - This movie was disgusting. Please never mention this again.

3.Fifty Shades of Grey should be considered a step-back in women’s rights. - Ah, please stop. That is ridiculous. If you think this novel will take women’s right to vote and etc away, keep dreaming. 

4.Fifty Shades of Grey deserves to be banned in every library. - Great idea! Let’s start the oppression. 

Fifty Shades of Grey Review: 

Anastasia Steele finds herself in a very interesting situation when she, instead of her friend Kate Kavanagh, is sent to interview the mysterious Christian Grey (CEO of Grey Enterprises Holding INC.) Having never heard of this business guru, Anastasia is in for quite a surprise when she finds he’s more than what she was expecting. Christian Grey has set his sights on Anastasia and has no intentions of letting her go. 

Fifty Shades of Grey is definitely unique. Many times, this novel begs the reader to step out of their comfort zone and into the mind of Christian Grey. Underneath Christian’s cold and driven attitude is someone very scared by the devastating events in his early life. 

Anastasia Steele:

Anastasia Steele is the kind of heroine that needs to be recognized. She is smart, pretty, brave and very strong willed. I was so amazed by how she was able to handle herself throughout this entire novel. Not many people are willing to leave their comfort zones and allow life to take them on journey wherever it may land. Anastasia is by far one of my new favorite heroines. 

Christian Grey:

I found myself able to really connect with Christian and understand why he chooses to live the way he does. Since this was the case, I was able to see through his exterior into the little boy that I knew still existed inside of him; the one still looking for acceptance and love. 


Yes, yes, YES. Is that enough of an answer? No? You want more? Okay. How about this...this novel will blow your mind apart and make you questions things you never thought you would. A total game changer you want to be a part of. Read it now.
