E.L. James has created a masterpiece. Fifty Shades of Grey is well written and immerses you in a world you may not have even known existed. I particularly enjoyed two things about the book, chapter 8 and the emails between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Make sure you pay attention to Christian's signatures at the bottom of each of his emails.
After finishing the novel I asked myself if I would date Christian Grey. No. Here's why. I have a medical condition, undefined connective tissue disease, that causes chronic pain. Every moment of every day I struggle. Being involved with a man who 'needs' to physically hurt me doesn't do it for me. At all. People within the BDSM community may say it's a pleasurable pain. In my opinion there is no such thing. My wish is to have a day when I don't have any type of pain.
I highly recommend Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Once you read the first book you'll want to read the rest immediately. The trilogy is a fascinating read. If you're up for a little kinky fuckery and not easily offended, these are the books for you.
Buy the trilogy!!
