I’m sure some of you may have heard about this trilogy. These past couple of days have been so nice in terms of weather I thought it was time to start reading and enjoying the sun outside.
I guess I got caught up with all the commotion about this book being that it’s on New York Times #1 bestselling list. I couldn’t help myself and picked up part 1.
EL James’s characters in Fifty Shades of Grey were originally based on Bella and Edward from the movie Twilight. In Fifty Shades the author disguises Bella and Edward as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey – a literature student and a successful businessman respectively. It all begins so very romantic and kind of fairytailish but E.L.James gives Christian an intriguing dark secret: he’s into BDSM (you might want to look that up in google J). Yes I know – kind of creepy, right?
Below is a short description of the storyline.
Christian is a handsome multi-millionaire 27-year-old entrepreneur. It’s not important what he does; what’s important is that he has lots of money. After 21-year-old Anastasia interviews the sexy CEO for her university newspaper, the pair embark on a passionate and unorthodox love affair. Christian doesn’t do the “girlfriend” thing, but he’d rather enjoy it if Miss Steele (as he annoyingly continues to call her throughout the novel) would sign a contract consenting to be his submissive sex slave at the weekends. Anastasia sensibly considers this offer.
Well to my surprise I can’t get enough of reading this. I just picked up part 2 and 3 from the bookstore just to see how their relationship unfolds.
Because this novel has had such promising reviews Universal studios has picked up the film rights – yes, there’s a movie in the making. And of course readers are speculating who will play the role of Christian and Anastasia.
Well I won’t give anymore away, the internet is overloaded with reviews.
I personally feel this book gives me a good yet uncomfortable feeling, if you know what I mean.
I hope some of you will pick this book up and let me know what you think.
