    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
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who craves the excitement of jejune soft porn and can ignore appalling writing and doesn't mind cringing if they do.


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

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    No.


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

    Sorry, I can't.


    Any additional comments?

    I downloaded this book to see what all the jokes and allusions were about. I like to be up on cultural phenomena. This was an embarrassing waste of time and I still don't know. Is their such a paucity of interesting sex writing out there that this is the best we can do? The few vocabulary words that were beyond the Third Grade reading level were repeated so often that it seemed like this author just learned what, say, "clamber" meant and used it whenever any character ambulated. Just awful. And the reader only added to the annoyance, voicing the characters and narrative with an Eighth Grade wonderment that was puzzling for any modern day 21-year-old. Is anyone this naive? Oh, my.
