    I haven't read the unabridged version of this book, so I don't know if the original is better. This abridged versjon was too much a recital of events without any personality. It doesn't do the story justice.

    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.

    I gave this book a try because of the ratings, but I should have listened to the reviews. It is awful! The story could have been interesting if the characters weren't so shallow and badly described. The narration is horrible. Every voice sounds the same. Save your time for other books.
