Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One By E L James
Fifty Shades of Grey
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 of course.
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. Fifty Shades.
For a very long time, all I ever heard was all the controversy regarding these three books. I watched interview after interview and the only thing I ever heard was pertaining to all the sex. I kept thinking to myself “really”? So, I decided to read the books myself and form my own opinion. True, there were numerous pages pertaining to that subject but I also perceived a passionate love story between these two characters. Christian Grey, rich, handsome and totally filled with charisma and will melt your heart as you keep reading. However when he agreed to do an interview with a young lady by the name of Anastasia Steel, little did they both know that their lives were about to change forever. When Christian introduced Anastasia to his world, she accepts because she’s in love with him. And he’s falling in love with her too. There is a deeply hidden secret that bears heavy on Christian’s heart. Why is it necessary for him to have this secret room of his and to always be in control of everything? Anastasia is determined to find out what that secret is and help him in any way she can. She will do whatever it takes to prove her love for him even though he believes no one could ever love him. Why? Will she be able to do everything he expects her to do? And why hasn’t Christian ever had a girlfriend before? Is Anastasia really his first?…………….these books were impossible for me to put down. Controversy or no controversy, there was a deep undercurrent of emotions for these two characters. At times, it was even a little sad and you could actually feel the pain as you continued to read. If you can read with an open mind, you will like them too. I gave this review 5 stars because I feel it is justly deserved.
