Fifty Shades 1. Of Grey

Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy

MORE THAN 150 MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE Look for E L James's passionate new love story, The Mister, available now. 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. This book is intended for mature audiences.

  • CHAPTER ONE

    I scowl with frustration at myself in the mirror. Damn my hair-it just won't behave, and damn Katherine Kavanagh for being ill and subjecting me to this ordeal. I should be studying for my final exams, which are next week, yet here I am trying to brush my hair into submission. I must not sleep with it wet. I must not sleep with it wet. Reciting this mantra several times, I attempt, once more, to bring it under control with the brush. I roll my eyes in exasperation and gaze at the pale, brown-haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face staring back at me, and give up. My only option is to restrain my wayward hair in a ponytail and hope that I look semi-presentable.

    Kate is my roommate, and she has chosen today of all days to succumb to the flu. Therefore, she cannot attend the interview she'd arranged to do, with some mega-industrialist tycoon I've never heard of, for the student newspaper. So I have been volunteered. I have final exams to cram for and one essay to finish, and I'm supposed to be working this afternoon, but no-today I have to drive 165 miles to downtown Seattle in order to meet the enigmatic CEO of Grey Enterprises Holdings, Inc. As an exceptional entrepreneur and major benefactor of our university, his time is extraordinarily precious-much more precious than mine-but he has granted Kate an interview. A real coup, she tells me. Damn her extracurricular activities.

    Kate is huddled on the couch in the living room.

    "Ana, I'm sorry. It took me nine months to get this interview. It will take another six to reschedule, and we'll both have graduated by then. As the editor, I can't blow this off. Please," Kate begs me in her rasping, sore throat voice. How does she do it? Even ill she looks gamine and gorgeous, strawberry blond hair in place and green eyes bright, although now red rimmed and runny. I ignore my pang of unwelcome sympathy.

    "Of course I'll go, Kate. You should get back to bed. Would you like some NyQuil or Tylenol?"

    "NyQuil, please. Here are the questions and my digital recorder. Just press record here. Make notes, I'll transcribe it all."

    "I know nothing about him," I murmur, trying and failing to suppress my rising panic.

    "The questions will see you through. Go. It's a long drive. I don't want you to be late."

    "Okay, I'm going. Get back to bed. I made you some soup to heat up later." I stare at her fondly. Only for you, Kate, would I do this.

    "I will. Good luck. And thanks, Ana-as usual, you're my lifesaver."

    Gathering my backpack, I smile wryly at her, then head out the door to the car. I cannot believe I have let Kate talk me into this. But then Kate can talk anyone into anything. She'll make an exceptional journalist. She's articulate, strong, persuasive, argumentative, beautiful-and she's my dearest, dearest friend.

    The roads are clear as I set off from Vancouver, Washington, toward Interstate 5. It's early, and I don't have to be in Seattle until two this afternoon. Fortunately, Kate has lent me her sporty Mercedes CLK. I'm not sure Wanda, my old VW Beetle, would make the journey in time. Oh, the Merc is a fun drive, and the miles slip away as I hit the pedal to the metal.

    My destination is the headquarters of Mr. Grey's global enterprise. It's a huge twenty-story office building, all curved glass and steel, an architect's utilitarian fantasy, with GREY HOUSE written discreetly in steel over the glass front doors. It's a quarter to two when I arrive, greatly relieved that I'm not late as I walk into the enormous-and frankly intimidating-glass, steel, and white sandstone lobby.

    Behind the solid sandstone desk, a very attractive, groomed, blonde young woman smiles pleasantly at me. She's wearing the sharpest charcoal suit jacket and white shirt I have ever seen. She looks immaculate.

Fifty Shades of Fucked up

This is a short version of my review, to view the full version go to: http://bluerosedragon.deviantart.com/art/Fifty-Shades-of-Fucked-Up-and-Sick-342663462?ga_submit=10%3A1355426786 In an era where sex is on the forefront of pretty much every person's mind over the age of 15, it is not surprising at all that a book like this is a bestseller. However, I must pose one question: Do you even think before declaring such a book as "good"? While it is admittedly quite well-written, Fifty Shades of Grey is a story about a foolish, silly, naive and, quite frankly, self-centered young woman who finds herself intimidated and intrigued by a handsome millionaire she is supposed to interview. For whatever obscure reason, both are drawn to each other and soon find themselves in bed together, just as these things happen. It sounds like a cute, cheesy romance novel, at first. But even in the beginning the reader feels there is something not quite right. At about page 70, I got the impression that this was not an actual book, but a mediocre Twilight-Fanfiction with different names, and it got worse and worse, until, at about page 200, I was sure about my assumption. An assumption proved to be true after consulting Google after reading the novel. In this story, the seemingly cold, stoic, handsome Christian Grey seems to have taken the roll of a sadist Edward Cullen. Other characters are not as obvious, but it is still very easy to see the semblance of them to Twilight-Characters. Aside from the fact that the characters are a bit of a failure, there is also the plot to talk about. Or rather, the lack of plot. Most of the time, there is sex, negotiations about sex and talking to others about sex to the point that it gets boring, even for someone who loves reading porn. I also wish to comment on the complete absence of dignity, especially with the main Character. Not only does Ana accept presents that are probably worth several million US-Dollars from the man she sleeps with, but also does she let him order her around, give her grades for her behaviour and partially dictate the way she lives. While I understand that a book is not neccessarily bad because one dislikes a character, it is still quite infuriating. Moving on to the next point: The dialogues. I can sum up all the dialogues in just a few short words: Christian giving orders; people talking about sex; inane small talk. It is disgusting to know that so many people enjoy a book like that. Seriously people, there is so much written porn out there, GOOD porn, with characters that actually possess the ability to think and act accordingly to logical observations and thoughts. I do not see the need of buying a book like Fifty Shades of Grey for that kind of pleasure.

Genial

Hinreissend und romantisch! Unbedingt lesen. Im Buch wird erzählt, wie eine Unschuld vom Land einem milliardenschweren Sexgott verfällt, der wegen einer schlimmen Kindheit nicht lieben kann und das Landmädchen in die dunkelschöne Welt des Sadomasochismus einführt, mit ihm in dominanter Rolle.
