Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L.James

Well I heard all of the hype, I listened to numerous people pestering me to read it and so I gave in. I read the Fifty Shades Trilogy.  Wow. Overrated springs to mind. . .here's another word for it: filth! But yet I couldn't find myself to put it down. It was almost like a love/hate relationship with the book because I loved to hate it yet I hated to love it.

The story follows the sinister love life of Mr Christian Grey - a young, successful business man who has some seriously strange. . .needs? That is the only word I can use I think! His chance encounter with Ana Steele leads to a very perplexing situation arising. . .the trilogy follows there weird and wonderful relationship through all of it's ups and downs.

A lot of it is very sexually explicit and for some people, may go a little bit too far.  I have to say there was definitely parts where I felt that the novel became less about the story and more about sex the question every reader must ask themselves is: are they the same thing - the story and sex?

Fifty Shades has become a sensation over the past few months and the film rights have been purchased...a long way for a story which started out as Twilight fan fiction methinks
