I couldn't put these books down. After I read them once, I had to reread them again!

Fifty Shades trilogy is steamy, shocking but in the end has a great storyline that keeps you coming back for more.

I read the trilogy and could not put them down either. I found it to be a very good love story. It was steamy but you have to look beyond that. His like or dominance came from abuse and a dark place. She made him see the light. I look forward to the movie and the 4th book!

I dont' think a movie will be able to capture this relationship in one movie! Theres rumors that the guy from White Collar may be playing Christian. I love Ana! She is my new favorite heroine!

I like this trilogy, though the writing style is very simplistic i think that makes for an effortless read. The eroticism is exquisite too, not too vulgar but enough to make it a little dirty. I've got this is audiobook also.

I found out about 50 Shades via one of the social circles I circulate. It was heavily praised in said circles by the time I learned of it. I of course had to go check it out, my attention grabbed at this point.

Yes I looked it up first, having been told that it was "not everyone's taste", and of course what I found was people reviewing it as "an erotic novel of BDSM", controversial, downright dirty, etc.

Honestly, it couldn't be worse than De Sade's Justine, could it?

As I got further into the book, yes, it made me uncomfortable in a few places, pun both intended and not. By the time I got to the infamous contract, I had started to consider re-evaluating my own sexuality. By the time I got through the contract I had both decided to be more open in my sex life and more honest about it. Not only that but, considering my own intimate life and the contract, I realized that I had a MUCH more solid understand of what I do like, what I don't like, what I'm willing to explore, what I might be willing to explore but am not ready to at this time, and what is PERMANENTLY off limits.

Add to this that I love analyzing life and people, sorry it's in my nature to do so. I found myself intensely interested not only in the story, but also the underlying psyche's of the characters on a level that most of the time, I don't get from reading.

End of the first book, I find myself with mixed feelings about everything, the situation, the people, all of it.

I started reading the second, couldn't wait to pick it up at this point, and immediately I'm irritated, feeling that the author has seriously reduced her writing skill and quality, and pretty much damaged their intelligence and maturity level's integrity. But I keep reading.

And I start to realize that this is WAY more than erotic fiction, or an expose' on not so talked about lifestyles. It's way more than a romance novel. It will, if read in the correct light, make you re-examine the value of unconditional love, what it REALLY means to stand by someone through whatever hell may come. It will make you re-examine your own life and maybe some of your own flaws and "baggage" so to speak. It will make you re-examine your lines, sexually, romantically, socially, and how much and to what extent you will take hardship, period.

I am glad that this was correctly categorized under romance. But I don't think that any categorizing of 50 Shades is going to do it justice. It's true to its name. 50 Shades of Grey, 50 shades of erotica, 50 shades of screwed up, 50 shades of unconditional love, 50 shades of healing, 50 shades of hardship, and 50 shades of relationship dynamics.

Personally the movie trailer looked like it may not do it justice, but I'll of course wait and see. In the mean time I've just started reading the third book with a kind of wonder and breathless anticipation, as par the course by now with this series.

MORE THAN 100 MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE
NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE


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.
 
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.

This book is intended for mature audiences.
