Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

Editorial Review -

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 outoftown hardware store where she works parttime. Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever. Read full review

I bought this book for my five year old son who was interested in colors thinking it would teach him a lot. Boy was i right. He has recited the book several times at dinner making us all awkwardly uncomfortable. I recommend this book to anyone with young children to read to them for bedtime.

Fifty Shades of Grey is the greatest book out there. its very well written! I would love to read more books like this one, but cannot find any that can compare to it. I'm absolutely in love with this trilogy and cannot wait for the move to come out in February!
-Thanks for writing such a great book E. L. James!

Before writing this review I read that this book started as a fanfiction for Twilight. Although that's very much a turn off I have read the book and I am very pleased. There are very slight similarities, for example how Mr. Grey seems to have the same effect on women as it is implied Edward Cullen does and the fact that Anastasia Steele (a very average and awkward girl),very much like Bella Swan, seems to have the same effect on these characters which is as close you can get to unrealistic. But that's about it (sorry for the lack of proper sentences). Other than that, in my opinion, the two stories really don't compare. If you must, you could say this is the adult and un-clichéd version of the two plots. They are even two different genres, nothing supernatural about Fifty Shades trilogy.
Standing alone, I very much enjoyed this book and I look forward to seeing the motion picture. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is because the ending was lacking. All in all it was a pleasure to read.
