When unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately repelled by Christian's singular sexual tastes, Ana demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed. Now, together, they have more - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity, or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present. Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, tragedy, malice and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true.

*copied from my comments of Fifty Shades of Grey*

Yeah. I read this book. The trilogy was definitely good for a summer read, but I have some problems with it, as a whole.

First off, this series is very clearly a fanfic. There is nothing wrong with writing and reading fanfiction (as a prolific reader & writer of fanfiction myself), but when it is so blatantly a ripoff of someone else's work, you would think the editor or agent would have tried to help James be a little more subtle.

Second, James clearly has a very negative and very incorrect view of BDSM, and of that specific community. If you are reading this for ideas to spice up life in the bedroom, please don't. There are better, more accurate, more caring sources out there then this series. Christian is a terribly messed up human, and how he treats Ana isn't really inline with how the community believes in treating each other. (I have really read a lot, because I couldn't believe that Christian was a good example of BDSM. Lo and behold, he's not.)

Thirdly, why did James' editor hate her? There were so many spelling and grammatical mistakes in the PUBLISHED books that I cried. I CRIED. Not because I was sad about anything in the book, but because my English degree and English teacher's SOUL was dying. I don't know if this was just in the versions published in the UK (that's where I bought II and III because I was living there at the time), but I couldn't not cringe.

Fourth in my rant: This whole "Mrs. Robinson" stuff is ridiculous as well. Actions from the past do not provide an excuse for actions in the present. All they do is provide motivation, but that does not excuse your behavior. An adult from your past was not-so-great - that does not mean that you, when you grow up, have to be not-so-great, too.

Please.... I get the appeal of reading this, and I don't blame a soul for enjoying it. Just please read with the knowledge that so much of the stuff in the books are incorrect and terrible representation of a lifestyle.

Say what you will about the author, writing, or story but I loved this series. No it's not practical but hey most don't read romance novels for practicality. It's a great story to get lost in and learn that love can change even the most stubborn of people. I was glad to see both Anna and Christian get their happy ending and that he was able to overcome things for her.

Would you go into the darkness if it meant you saved someone else from complete darkness?

Absolutely mindless rubbish. And James can't even claim authorship really, as she plaigarised the entire storyline, plot, characters - the lot - from Stephenie Meyer, who wrote the Twilight series. Meyer's work was never intended to be anything other than a teenage love story - but at least it was original. This English woman James is nothing but a thief and should have been sued accordingly.

Loved the book, in fact the whole series. People have assumed it was a profane book. It is a love story about two people working through their own insecurities and finding love.

TERRIBL! Don't even try it it reverses your intelligence. Sad, that it is so popular. If you enjoy reading, DO NOT try this. Save yourself the agony.
