When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating.

I see so many reviews on this book that are negative in nature but I didn’t think that at all and I’m glad I followed my mind and listened to the book rather than overlook it like the comments suggested. Very graphic sexually so it’s definitely not for the faint of heart. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Her husband is a workaholic, more concerned with his family's financial situation than emotional stability, and he doesn't understand why his wife is unhappy. He doesn't understand why the house and the credit cards and the fabulousness of what he's given her isn't enough. So when Angelique meets someone new, she does something she never thought she'd do - she has an affair. It's addictive, and Angelique wants more and more, but is she willing to give up everything she has for this fantasy come true?

I wasn’t too impressed with this book. It took a long time before it kept my attention. The ending was not what I expected but I will settle for it.

This story took a long time to get good and there were a couple of times I start to quit reading it because it just wasn’t holding my attention. The narrator was okay but could have been much better. Overall it was good, not great, but good. Once the book got good it was good and I enjoyed the ending. Not sure if I would read a sequel to it though.

The book was good, very grimy sexually which I didn't particularly care for but the storyline was good. It started getting confusing when the narrator started switching up the characters quickly. I am inclined to read the next book that comes after this one.
