Blurb: When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, unamusing, and deeply annoying, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will haunt you, abuse you, and forever be your sin.
I decided to buy and read “Fifty Shades of Grey” because the salesman said this book outsold all seven Harry Potter books!!! So I thought it was going to be good. The rating is also that great. That was why I determined to give it a try.
The opening was okay. However after some of Christian’s dark (and dirty) HUGH secret (?) revealed; I really, really DISAPPOINTED … my soon-to-be-good feeling for this book went to abyss. All of my seem-to-be an enjoyment was poof … gone. I had to admit that some part of the story could still make me laugh (although most of it not in a good way) and some part was also disgusted me … have sex during a period!? … YUCK!!! I thought this book was one of those books that you either loved it or hate it.
I found this (Taylor’s) review on Amazon and it could describe my feeling toward this POPULAR-NOT-FOR-ME book:
1. The awful writing: I am not literature snob. However, this book feels like it us on a 5th grade level made to seem better with a thesaurus. It’s repetitive and just plain bad.
2. The non-existent plot: Seriously, nothing happens. They meet, they have sex, they email each other, the have more sex, the bite lips, they have more sex, the end … Just plain boring.
RUN AWAY FROM THIS BOOK!!! Another thing is I don’t understand how it outsold all seven Harry Potter books. Maybe that salesman lied to me. Damn him … I want my money back.
