The first 2 words of the title scared me so I didn't read it. I will however still thoroughly review the whole book. First of all, the plot was a lil sketch. Ana is startled to realize she wants this man, but is Ana really feeling this high in your heart like your cheerios on the fridge. Also, Grey was a lil confusing. Why was he not grey? This means no sense and really had me wondering. FEAR THE BEARD!!!!!

I resisted all the hype (don't know why, stubborn I guess) and never read the books until after the movie came out, then continued to resist after I heard there were negative reviews. Someone bought the books (whole series) and strongly encouraged I give them a try.... And I did.... And I LOVED IT!! (Yes, SHOUTY CAPITALS!!) I completely related to the lead character, thought her to be funny and her reactions exactly the way I would have reacted. Though uncomfortable with the pain elements of the subject matter, the rest of the sexuality was really hot and very well written. But most of all I loved the romance, and yes I did see this as a romance. I can't wait to read the second book, i'm only one book in. Haven't read a book that fast in years. And yes, once I finished I had to see the movie. As expected I completely disagree with the negative critics. I loved the movie, loved Dakota, thought she brought out all the innocence and humor of Anastasia and handled the sensuality of the sex scenes as well as I could have possibly expected. I'm critical of movies and performances but I liked this. I get it though. If you hadn't read the books, this movie isn't for you. Similar to Twilight, there is so much backstory in the writing that is challenging to bring to the film in 2 hours, it's not always the best movie to see without having read the books. That being said, I hope both Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan know that they did a great job bringing these characters to light. Not easy as a male actor to portray Christian without the audience hating him. For me, he did a great job. I never write reviews but I loved this book so much I had to voice my opinion. Thanks E.L. Laters, baby. :-)

I wish I would not have listen to what people had to say about the book I was expecting much more than what I read. Overall the book was okay; it's not the best book I've ever read, it's just okay. Top seller? I believe it became top seller because of curiosity not because of it being a great book. The sex part of the book were a little below the imagination of what an S & M book would really be.

no! This book is horrible! I thought it was going to be about depression or something like that, it's called fifty shades of gray, seriously. that's...no. bad. the worst part is I don't know how to get rid of it! people can read what ever they want, I don't care. I just want to get rid of this book!!!

50 Shades of Disappointment
I wanted to read this book to see what all the hype was about. New York Times bestseller? Really?! I was surprised at how sophmoric and poorly written this book was. A few
pages in, it became clear to me that this was an amateur writer, which would have been fine had there been any real proof reading done. The grammatical errors, plot holes and constant use of British-isms ruined this book for me. And how much flushing, blushing, and smirking does a book need? Everytime Ana said "Oh my" I wanted to scream!

I was skeptical at first about reading this book, but I wanted to see what all of the hype was about. Once I started reading the book, I was hooked; I was so hooked that I read the entire series in 4 days. I strongly recommend the Fifty Shades series. After finishing the books, I wonder if I will ever get over them.

This book was outstanding. There were obviously a lot of sex scenes in the book, but it was natural. Any kind of sex, is natural to me. I've never read a book such as this one. But I loved it. It was filled with love, passion, sex, honesty, etc.

I was apprehensive about reading this book. I read the first 3 chapters as part of the trial and was hooked. I am not a big reader of books but couldn't put it down. Amazing story. Cannot wait for the movie.
