Fifty Shades Of Grey Book Review

Blooming Fiction lifestyle blog, book review, Fifty Shades Of Grey

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.

Fifty Shades Of Grey
by E L James

Publisher: Arrow Books
Publish Date: 12th April 2012
ISBN: 9780099579939
Rating: 5/5


Based on the concept of poor naive girl meets rich and handsome man this plot is what you'd consider to be unoriginal but it has a crucial twist.

Anastasia Steele steps in to interview Christian Grey at the last minute and despite feeling remarkably out of place events occur which see her effectively being stalked by the rich entrepreneur. Unable to keep a distance the inevitable happens and Christian's dark side is revealed. 

In recent years there is no other book which has caused such a large amount of noise like Fifty Shades Of Grey. Whether it's people complaining about how badly it's written or how that 'sort of thing' shouldn't be in books, the point is that practically everyone has read it or knows exactly what it is.

I, for one, am not embarrassed that I've read the trilogy twice and can be honest in saying I enjoyed them. Although 'kinky fuckery' is not my cup of tea, I like how easily it is blended in to the book and it doesn't leave you feeling guilty after reading it. Just a little warm under the collar.

Some books have that amazing superglue touch where you don't want to put it down, for me Fifty Shades Of Grey is one of them. Despite many opinions saying it is badly written I find it easy reading and find myself fully engrossed in the story pretty quickly. Long-winded introductions get tedious, so plunging straight into the main story line makes for great reading.

When I normally look at a 500 page book I groan a little thinking I'll still be reading it at Christmas, but with Fifty Shades Of Grey I read it cover to cover within 24 hours. I even found myself sitting up at silly o clock in the morning just because I wanted to continue reading. To me that's what a great book is and does.

For a book that so many people criticize this is a book that many bookworms will enjoy. Though the idea and element of sex toys is not everyone's favoured subject it doesn't scare you away or make you embarrassed. The only people who may not like this book are those who have already decided they won't enjoy it. I was one of those people originally and I gave it a go. I've been hooked ever since.
