Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James

I bought this book after hearing everyone talking about it and so I told Mr Book, aka Uncle Book, one sunset of my plans to buy the trilogy and he just seemed confused as to why I was telling him… I don’t believe he knew precisely what type of book I was buying Sssshhhh!
So I bought the trilogy the next day whilst out at the supermarket undertaking the weekly shop, and couldn’t wait to get home to begin reading. I did however flush somewhat when I got to the till with discomfort!

Fifty Shades of Grey
Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James
I started to read the first of the series - Fifty Shades of Grey. And misplaced the next four days of my life because I found it completely spellbinding... Uncle Book was content however because he got to watch the fishing channel without me niggling. The book is branded ‘mommy porn’ which I feel at times is factual but I also believe that there is more to it. It is a love story and an emotional thriller. Believe me there are ample moments when I blushed because of the thorough sex scenes, but it was in keeping with the story and the intense relationship of the two major characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. A lot of folks said that the initial book takes some time to get into… for the sex yes, but for the story, I think started right from the get-go with getting to recognize Anastasia Steele’s life before it was made complex. There were phrases that were used frequently in the book which made it unsurprising and painless to skim over but don’t feel that it stole from the story in any way.

I found myself getting really frustrated at times because I just wanted Christian Grey to say… I LOVE YOU!!!! It was driving me up the wall and Uncle Book too since I was making debates with myself as if I was in parliament. This is why the book was impossible to put down though, because you always needed to know!

If an intense love story with a pinch (or perhaps a handful) of love-making is your thing then this is the book for you… I just wish I would have written it!

Kindest Regards,
Mrs Book
