Review: Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

SYNOPSIS: Summary Nominated for Best Romance in the 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time. The unworldly, innocent Ana is shocked to realize she wants this man, and when he warns her to keep her distance it only makes her more desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her - 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 adoptive family – Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a passionate, physical and daring affair, Ana learns more about her own dark desires, as well as the Christian Grey hidden away from public scrutiny. Can their relationship transcend physical passion? Will Ana find it in herself to submit to the self-indulgent Master? And if she does, will she still love what she finds? Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.


Fifty Shades of Grey is like a gravitational pull, it sucks you in and never lets you go! Once you read this book it sticks with you and you will never forget the fifty shades of Christian Grey!

Christian Grey is a powerful, rich and very controlling CEO.  He is a man who has it all, but even though he could have anything he wants, he is haunted and tortured by a past he just can't seem to get past.

Anastasia Steele is a literary college student.  Who likes books and even though you would think she knows things and how the world turns, well she isn't as knowledgeable as one would think.

When she is drafted into interviewing Christian for her friend Kate, all it takes is one trip into his office and Christian Grey is smitten with Anastasia.  He tries hard to stay away from her, but its like a moth drawn to a flame, he just can't stay away.  Will she be caught up in his controlling ways or will Christian be able to fight against who he is and his past and truly fall in love with Anastasia Steele?

I loved this book, its very different from what I've been reading so it was a great break away from the YA fiction.  I love the Characters and the plot, I will say this though, I hated where it ended.  Not really hate "hate" per-say, no I just needed more of the story and I was screaming at my computer for more. I could never hate this book its too incredible. 

I loved that Christian seems so strong but underneath his mask he is damaged and not as strong as he tries so hard to be.  I love how Anastasia wants to love Christian, but she isn't sure she is good enough for him or if she can be what he wants.  It just shows that no on is perfect!

I can't wait to read the next book in this series and will as soon as I get it to read.  The descriptions in this book are amazing.  I could watch this book in my head as I read, like a movie playing out in my mind! I love love love Fifty Shades of Grey.  E.L. James is an incredibly Wonderful Author!!

My Recommendation: 

Due to the content in this book and the topics discussed, I will defiantly say this is for ages 18 and up.  Strong sexual content is involved in Fifty Shades of Grey so 18 and up is the perfect age for reading it.

My Rating: 

Plot: 20/20
Characters: 20/20
Writing: 20/20
Creativity: 20/20
Ending: 10/10 (even though it about killed me lol) 
Cover: 10/10

100 out of 100 = 5 Puppies

I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a little fifty shades in their life's.

A wonderful book, by a wonderful writer. I've read most of Ms. James' writing and love, love, love them all. This is an adult book, so keep that in mind if you select to read it and doesn't disappoint. This is part of a trilogy and the story is wonderful. This is a deeply moving story with unforgettable characters in an exciting setting.
