    Titan is the first full-length biography based on unrestricted access to Rockefeller’s exceptionally rich trove of papers. A landmark publication full of startling revelations, the book indelibly alters our image of this most enigmatic capitalist. Born the son of a flamboyant, bigamous snake-oil salesman and a pious, straitlaced mother, Rockefeller rose from rustic origins to become the world’s richest man by creating America’s most powerful and feared monopoly, Standard Oil. Branded "the Octopus" by legions of muckrakers, the trust refined and marketed nearly 90 percent of the oil produced in America.

    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 would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?

    Not having been written.


    What was most disappointing about E. L. James’s story?

    That it is about as bad as saved by the bell or any story about the kardashians. It's geared towards high schoolers.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None stands out. Couldn't make it through the book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    it gives hope to awkward women that they will have interesting sex lives?
