E.L. James, Fifty Shades Of Grey (1)


Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


So this is supposed to be fanfiction following Twilight. Smart move by the author to ride on that wave, but totally unnecessary as this book is so strong (without any paranormal tendencies) on its own account…

Anastasia replaces her roommate and best friend Kate to conduct an interview for the school newspaper and finds Christian Grey, CEO of a huge company he has founded. She’s inexperienced, he’s got lots af baggage. Two worlds collide!!!

These two main characters couldn’t be on more different ends of the emotional spectrum and yet from the first look and touch there is an electric current between them that makes sparks fly whenever they get together… to write more would be a spoiler…and this is not a book you want spoiled. It’s not a book that can be summarized, only vaguely outlined. Partly due to the fact that the story line is slim, which doesn’t mean there is no action… on the contrary: There is lots of action!!!

Sexual tension will pull you through this book. Even if you have read that there is some SMBD in it and it isn’t your personal preference you cannot help feeling exactly what Anastasia is feeling, because it is written so amazingly well from her POV. Her inner turmoil is depicted so well by her “inner goddess” and her “subconcious”, that it is easy to find yourself being her, going through what she’s going through; and, boy, does it touch your heart and often other places, too…

And it hurts…

Read it and you know what I mean!
