Rating: 5 stars

Explore the world of Christian Grey through the eyes of innocent Anastasia Steele as she slowly unravels his secrets and delves into this other sexual life.

Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, this is a novel that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

Goodreads Book Description:
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, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

My Review:
Personally, it took me a while to get through this book but once I had, it kept me going back for more adventures between Ana and Christian another 3 times. Total = 4 re-reads

I recently have seen the movie directed by extraordinaire Sam Taylor Johnson & starring the lovely Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and the hunky Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. And I know he was the second choice because Charlie Hannum was chosen first but I believe Dornan fits the role of the intimidating Grey better. But hey, that's my opinion.

The book however was not only an exquisite read but a definite favorite of mine, I am yet to reread Fifty Shades Darker & Fifty Shades Freed but the phenomenon has spread across the world in a total of 100 million copies sold in February 2014 & $500 million tickets sold in March 2015!

EL James created a story which has opened the world up to a different lifestyle that many people either agree or disagree with, I personally don't know where I sit - possibly in the middle? - however it has changed my view on many things in the world.

I found I was able to relate to Anastasia in multiple ways, some being how she thinks, her values and who she is as a person. Dakota played the role perfectly and true to the book, Jamie did a splendid job of playing Christian as he did bring the character to life and stayed true to Grey's values and ways that EL James has described in Fifty Shades Of Grey.
