    Story
    (11685)

    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.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Pretty much everything disappoints. Bad plotting (I do not know ANY women who would put up with a guy who, before even dating, scolds them for getting drunk), tired characters, and too much coincidence.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. James again?

    Doubtful.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was ok.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Umm, all of them?


    Any additional comments?

    I read this primarily to see how a successful book of the genre dealt with the women's perspective of falling for the 'bad boy'. As uncomfortable as it was, I did get a view, albeit extremely formulaic (I was hoping for a fresh and new take).
