Product description

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 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...

Customer reviews

I personally found the 50 shades book very badly written and not very entertaining. From the reviews of friends and colleagues I tried to keep reading but didn't even make it to 200 pages. If I met anyone with the attitude of Mr. Grey, I'd find it very very difficult to find him anyway attractive or even likeable! Ana, the female character is an absolute dose! usually there has to be at least one interesting or likeable character in a book to keep you reading!!

I did however read the first book of another supposed 'copycat' trilogy and found it excellent and would highly recommend it. All is not lost for the Romance novels!

Is this literature or just Porn??? What a of waste of one one's reading time - There is so many exciting and enticing books out there and I cannot understand how this gibberish got to be one the "best seller's list" I read approximately half the first book and felt nauseated and disgusted. I see young teenagers read this on the bus - and I have to wonder how did our society get to this low level of immorality. I would have rated this book zero but there was no zero.

I purchased the trilogy of fifty shades because I was intrigued to find out why so many women were engrossed in it whilst on public transport. I managed to finish the 3 novels within 2 weeks. It was an easy read, the first installment 'fifty shades of Grey did not really meet my expectations, the eroticism did not appeal to me as such, but the characterization of the main protagonists was impeccable. The following two installments was an improvement from the first, the story line was better conceptualized and it was more than just a simple erotic piece. Despite its minor faults, overall it was an adequate book, especially if you are looking for an easy read yet interesting concept. I would also like to commend the author for taking such a big risk and evidently succeeding in reaching such a large yet diverse group of respondents.

I loved this book because it took me out of my everyday world and entertained me. It made me laugh and cringe! Romantic and erotic! Great book, awesome trilogy.

...forget later.
Just as with twilight, it's fun to read. Nothing more, nothing less. Very entertaining if you overlook all the mistakes and flaws.
Are you searching for some literary sensation... this in not your book.
Strong characters... too clich�??�?�©.
Something light and erotic... go on :-)
