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.

Someone described this book with a term "housewife porn"; there's no need for a plot just as long as there's lots and lots of porn. Yeah, that's pretty much it.
Erotic? There's hardly anything erotic with two people just going at it like rabbits. Amusing? Naaaah. Deeply moving.. What book are they talking about?!

I wanted to stop reading this half way through, because that's when author ran out of ideas. But I continued, because the first half was at least some what entertaining. Definitely not believable, but vaguely entertaining. I kept going, but as said, author ran out of ideas. And guess what she does? Writes two more books.

I didn't really like the characters, because they were just repeating the same thing over and over again, they had no personality and they really were just dull.
I usually dislike male characters who say things women wants them to say.
Like you can imagine there's this lady playing with Barbie and Ken, imitating male voice and she's grunting

"oh baby, you're so hot! You make me hot. I'm on fire", says Ken. High-pitched Barbie continues "But.. I've never been touched before." Ken grunts, again "You're.. a virgin? OMG." High-pitched "Yeah." Ken is like "Wow. That's awesome. I wanna fuck you." High-pitched "Yeah." Ken is like "Show me how you touch yourself." Barbie, high-pitched and shocked: "I would never do that! Don't you see I'm all innocent and even though I'm 45, I've never touched myself before?! Because only you make me hot." Ken, like "WOW. Like AWESOME. Like you're so awesome I come like now."

Oh, except in this case dirty- Barbie and -Ken sound British, even though they are American. What's the deal with that?!
Don't get me even started with the freaking twitching palm, inner goddess, schizophrenic behavior, red room of pain.. This sucked so bad. And now I have headache, apparently even thinking about this book makes my hurt.

LOL. I loved the books but they are not for everyone. I think the author still did her job since your so passionate about NOT liking it lol It's a best seller so every book isn't for everyone.
