Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James

From Goodreads: -

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.

Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

I wonder why this book is so popular. That make me want to read this book. I'm not a real fan of Twilight, and as expected, this book is not really my cup of tea too. The story of this book is ok. Except in my opinion, the sex scenes are a little overwhelming throughout the whole book. I think it's unnecessary to describe each and every time they get intimate together. In my opinion that makes the storyline become weaker. However I like the banter between Ana and Grey on their emails. I think without those fun emails, I doubt if I will ever finish reading the whole book. And I still don't understand how it become so popular, especially among the female reader. Oh well, just like I'm not a big fan of Twilight too.

I rate this book 2 out of 5 stars.
