Blurb: 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.
Review: I have a huge respect for E.L James and the amount of books that she has sold. If you want an erotic read, and haven’t read books involving BDSM before and are curious, then it’s worth a read. I wish the main character Ana stood up for herself more, and Mr Grey wasn’t so controlling and paranoid. She seems to change everything for him, the way she dresses, the friends she hangs out with, etc. Mr. Grey rarely lets her out of his sight, which is a tad suffocating. It would be nice for her to have a life outside of Mr. Grey also. I did like the book covers, they were very stylish, and the author (from interviews/media) does seem like a lovely person and her writing style was descriptive.
