Curious to see what all the hype was about in reading the first of three
trilogies written by E.L. James. I went out and purchased a copy of the
ever popular # 1 Best Seller - Fifty Shades of Grey.
Here is my own review of Fifty Shades of Grey:
For women searching for our version of Pamela Anderson, enter
billionaire mogul Christian Grey. I find myself engulfed in the
Anastasia Steel character searching for the normal loving relationship,
all women fantasize about in our younger years and beyond.
Anastasia’s innocence to the bondage, dominant, sexual world of Christian
Grey unfolds in a captivating love story of mystery and sexual escapades,
exploding on the book pages. Her attraction to the debonair, rich and sinfully
attractive Christian Grey is unyielding. We follow Anastasia’s struggles
to adapt to Christian’s extravagant life style, which she’s totally unaccustomed.
Her straight forward subconscious in many verbal scenarios cracks me up!
Anastasia takes us on a roller coaster journey to unravel an abusive and
heartbreaking past, haunting her new lover Christian Grey. His scarred past
in turn effects his dominant relationships with women. Also we’re riveted as
Ana is physically drawn into experimenting Christian’s wild bondage sexual desires.
Their relationship is electric, with their bodies emulating sexual currents going
amuck between them constantly! A movie deal is in the works, the rating
could easily be an R or and X, with many of the sexual scenes omitted or cut
away to be left up to the viewer’s imagination.
My only nit with the writing is the cocking of the heads, which is mentioned
numerous times and reminds me of dogs cocking their heads. Otherwise, I find
the writing humorous, entertaining, and engaging. So engaging I went out
and purchased the second of the trilogy “Fifty Shades Darker.” Fifty Shades
of Grey leaves you hanging, and dying to know what will happen next in the
torn relationship between Ana and Christian!
I love the battling quest of finding true romance, and Shades of Grey
delivers the quest in a provocative, fun, and entertaining way!
