When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time. Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Did you somehow miss all the buzz around the Fifty Shades trilogy? Add some spice to your reading list and go back to where it all began with the first book in the series. We devoured the story of the passionate new relationship between naive Anastasia Steele and sophisticated billionaire Christian Grey in one sitting. It’s romantic, sexy, and more than a shade naughty, something you’ll probably want to read in private.

just a good, trashy read
This is great for by the beach or pool, a boring sleepless night, on the subway, etc. This is NOT a literary classic nor will it ever be a literary classic. One of those books like when you were a teen and you read a 'bodice ripper' with Fabio on the cover and thought "Oh my God, I could totally write a book!".
For a book trying to stretch the boundaries sexually, why would the author use the same overdone heroine who is so beautiful (but just doesn't know it) and is virgin yet orgasms immediately an takes to sex like a fish to water. Even worse, are we supposed to believe a girl in college is just getting email? If Ana says "Oh My" one more time, I'll vomit. It sounds like something my mother in law would say, not a 22 year old.
My inner goddess is like, Oh my!
My subconscious is like, Oh my!
Yeah, you just read the whole book.
