    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.

    Amazon Customer says: "Holy Crap minus the Holy"
    "The writer seems to have a very limited vocabulary"

    What would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?

    Author should have taken a writing class


    What could E L James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Find other discriptions, adjectives, exclaimations...


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger! Story line could have been more enjoyable if author didn't use the SAME wording over and over and over and over....such as "my inner goddess", "my sub-conscience", "holy shit", "holy crap". Couldn't think of any other words to use? Got VERY OLD, VERY FAST.Also, how many times can the character say "I blush", or "I flush" She is doing the most intimate things with this man, yet every time he speaks to her, she "flushes" or "blushes".Really?The other overused dialog is "I gaze at him", "he gazes at me", "I gaze up at him", "he gazes down at me", .....can't they simply just "look" at each other?Lastly, the e-mail interchanges could have been entertaining, but repeating the e-mail date/time/closing/name/title/company, etc. every time quickly became boring. Did the author think the readers are so stupid that we couldn't figure out who was writing the e-mails? Or was she using all of this extreanous information as a time/space filler?
