How BORING is this book ?!!!!!! It's unfathomable, incomprehensible to me, how it can be such a success.
Ana, poor girl, is BLUSHING endlessly, page after page after page - to ALL of her thoughts about Christian (and she thinks a LOT about him) and to almost EVERY remark he makes. Christian, immensely rich, incredibly generous and unimaginable beautiful (as we're told in every chapter again and again and again) - I tired of him (and HER !) almost immediately. The dialogue between them ? SOOOO BORING and predictable !!!!!
The slightly pornographic scenes ? Don' expect too much. Although it makes Ana tingle "down there" (= her words) - but the explanation for that could be that she is 23 and still a virgin...
I gave one star, because I'm not sure if you can give none; if possible, I would have given 5 stars UNDER zero.
I couldn't read more than 100 pages max., for the rest I just read a sentence here and there - more repetition of course - more boring stuff - thus I was immensely glad when it was finished and I could throw it out (you always hope that somehow the story will become more interesting as you go on - more often than not in vain, but certainly in this case).
How the author got away with this style of writing, the constant repeats etc., and still made a success of this book (and I'm told there are two follow-ups !!!) is beyond me. I'm sorry, E L James. And I truly wonder about all these women who seem to have read this book in a breathless frenzy...

I put off reading this trilogy after seeing the mass of negative reviews. But, curiosity finally got to me.
These books definitely have their faults: there's far too much sex, to the point where I simply skipped passed them; the writing is a little contradictory and repetitive, and it's in no way suitable for anyone who has experienced an abusive relationship.
However, if you are looking for an enjoyable guilty pleasure ,where you can leave your brain at the door and simply have a fun read, then it's great.
Don't take any notice of the neigh Sayers. This book was never meant to be a literary classic or a serious piece of literature. This book is all about indulgent fun. If that's what you're looking for, have at it and enjoy.

Much better than the film, as you imagine the characters a completely different way. The film picked out the certain lines and then portrayed the characters as one dimensional, whereas the book delves a bit deeper into their makeup. I know it 's impossible to get the characters flaws etc portrayed correctly on screen, but I personally think this would help the cinema/movie watcher understand more.

I quite enjoyed reading the book, not for the salacious love/sex themes but for the background story and how a naive, innocent girl from Portland slowly wins around a hard, dominating CEO from Seattle. She she's through the cool exterior to a vulnerable lost boy lurking within a man.

It's the build up to the climax of the book that makes you want to read the next installment and find out what happens.

This starts with the newlywed Christian and Ana on their honeymoon.

The return home finds the new Mrs Grey with the same issues plus others she had as Miss Anastasia Steele.

However, Ana has found confidence and this is shown by the way she deals with the interior designer and with the chancer on the dance floor at the night club. This is shown even better in the bank and the surrounding incident. She is also handling Christian the control freak better.

Like the previous two this is a book to long. Although this has more interactions with other people and situations like the car chase, the demand for five million dollars in cash, the hospital scenarios and Christian's early years. Plus the regular intimate action.

This is the best book of the series which has had a fair share of criticism. A lot of people in their own reviews on Amazon make their points on the grammar used and have given up on the whole thing.

I can understand these views. For me there is to much repetition and is predictable. Again there were opportunities to develop this story more but that did not happen.

The film of the original book is in production. I am not sure if this instalment is due for its own cinema release or if it will be included within that movie.

When that comes around the critics of that media will give their opinion.

There are only two ways these characters speak to one another - they whisper, they murmur and they don't actually stand still and freeze , they actually " still" . This idiosyncratic way of writing that E L James had dreamt up is a measure of the utterly dreadful writing, poor plot lines and deplorably badly written sex scenes that make me want to throw up . Insulting to real women everywhere, and dreadful when you consider in one scene.
, Christian Grey flogs his heavily pregnant wife. Distasteful in the extreme , It deserves minus stars - I cannot believe that this Mummy Porn had been lapped up by millions of women who clearly relish the idea of the kind of ill treatment Grey dishes out to women - it saddens me ,women are still subservient to men sexually and they seem to love the idea of it - very sad , what was emancipation all about ? But aside from the subject matter, it's just trashily written ,the book should not be allowed to reference real authors like Jane Austin , it's insulting , E L James had set back the cause of women - I hope the film is NEVER made .
