    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    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?

    A story line, well developed, believable characters, a plot, good writing: all of these things would have made the story better.


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

    This isn't a story, but simply light porn disguised as a story. The most disappointing thing is that I wasted money.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's speech is a fad/gimmick accent most commonly associated with teenagers.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    The scenes are erotic a bit scary and unbelievable.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for an erotic, far fetched fantasy and nothing more, then this is the perfect book. I heard a woman at the spa referred to this piece as a self help book.
