Fifty Shades of Gray (ISBN 978-0345803481)

by Samantha RiveraJanuary 11, 2015

Fifty Shades of Gray is an intriguing tale of romance, love and of course sex written by E. L. James.

 

But That’s Not All it is:

Simple Anastasia Steele has no idea what’s in store for her when she reluctantly agrees to take the place of her roommate at a highly important interview. She is determined that she will simply go, ask the questions, and leave without getting too nervous or embarrassed. After all, meeting a stranger is definitely not her cup of tea. But when she meets Christian Gray she can’t help but be overwhelmed by the sheer presence and power that he seems to exude throughout his office and throughout her as well. There are no ties to bind the two yet they feel drawn to one another.

 

When she walks out of his office Anastasia is certain she will never see Christian again, but she does and when she does, he reveals a secret about himself, he’s interested in her. It takes a couple of perfectly normal dates before Christian decides that he simply can’t be around Anastasia anymore. After all, she is nothing like the women he normally spends time with and he is certain that she will never want to be one of those women, he’s positive she can never handle Fifty Shades of Gray. He doesn’t know Anastasia Steele.

 

Anastasia feels concerned when she first learns of Christian’s secret life. She feels as though she could never agree to the terms of the contract set before her but at the same time, she can’t seem to draw herself away from it. She’s brought back to the idea that if she doesn’t sign the contract, if she doesn’t give up the power and control she has, she will lose Christian forever and can she live with that? It doesn’t take long for her to discover her answer and though it’s what Christian hoped it would be, it’s also not what he expected.

 

The tumultuous relationship begins with the mere signing of a contract but can a contract for sex and the rules concerning it really be enforced? It seems that Christian is going to do his best to do just that and Anastasia is just along for the ride. But she’s not such an unwilling participant especially since Christian seems to be just what she’s been waiting for all this time. Perhaps she can tame the lion, or perhaps the lion will simply make a meal of the lamb. Who will know what happens behind closed doors between a self-made man and an innocent college girl and what will the contract mean for their future?

    E. L. James received a bit of condescension for Fifty Shades of Gray but I wasn’t going to judge her without knowing the truth about her book. I read pretty much any romance novel that comes out no matter if it’s just a lighthearted story or if it’s a little more … interesting. So when this came out I had to be one of the first to give it a try. I heard all the crazy stories about how it was such an awful book and how there was just so much sex that it would ‘shock’ everyone but I didn’t see that. I definitely didn’t think there was a lot of sex and it definitely wasn’t as crazy as everyone said it was. This book is worth a read, don’t believe everything you hear.

    Fifty Shades of Gray became almost an overnight phenomenon. Everyone was talking about this book by E. L. James. In fact they have been for quite a while so I definitely had to give it a try. The hype made me think that maybe there was something about it that I would really like. I actually was somewhat surprised by how much I liked it given some of the rumors about its contents. There wasn’t near as much of the ‘bad’ things as I thought there would be and there was enough regular love and romance as well as interesting things happening outside Christian and Anastasia’s relationship that I enjoyed reading it. I’ll be looking for the next one.
