There was so much hype about this book I had to read it.
I finished the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy within a week. I'm not a literary expert, so don't harp me for not being able to analyze the book and find it's "deeper" meaning or "evaluate" the context thoroughly :)
Coming form an average Jane stand point of view I would give this book ★★★
- The only reason why I wanted to read this book, was fairly because I had nothing else to read. Harry Potter and the Twilight series was well overdue, and I missed the Hunger Games mini thrill.
What's this book about?
- It's about this 21 year old blue eyed brown haired girl named Anastasia Steele, who meets the richest, hottest bachelor in Washington name Christian Grey; a 27 year old who has grey eyes and cooper hair. He sweeps her off her feet but she finds out he's unusually kinky and hides a dark past. Blah Blah Blah... A love story pretty much. It's a "why choose me, why us?" kind of book.
- Easy read. I enjoyed reading the book, the author didn't add on any crap words or unnecessary sentences.
- This book fit my age group. I could relate to Anastasia's goals and understand how she was feeling.
- I loved Anastasia's inner battle with herself, it's so witty and funny.
- There were crazy events in the book left my jaw dropped.
- 50 Shades of Grey will not appeal to the general audience. Very mature content and I would not suggest this book to anyone who is under 21. In other words, NOT for teens. This book has intense and vivid imagery.
- There were some parts of the book that were so cheesy that I literarily rolled my eyes while reading, some things were too over rated.
Is this book movie material?
- I don't see why not. If they do make a movie out of this I hope they pick an awesome cast!
- While reading this book my imaginary "Christian Grey" was Ian Somerhalder, perfect fit right? Christian has some similar traits to Damon of the Vampire Diaries; cocky and overbearing.

- And my imaginary "Anastasia Steele" was Alexis Bledel from the Gilmore Girls! Very innocent naive girl who also share some similar traits to Anastasia.

- If 50 Shades of Grey does become a movie, I hope it's not awkward to watch. They may need to change the story line a bit to please the general public.
Overall, I think it's a really great read, and suggest this trilogy to those who can handle mature content. The love story is quite cute, and in some parts you'll definitely have "I wish I was her" kind of moment.
I purchased this book at a good price from Amazon.
