Fifty shades of Grey book review
Year 2011 was indeed a turning point in the whole book industry with the launch of stimulating Novel “50 shades of Grey”.. The name itself was quite attractive and started selling like hot cakes all around the world in just few months after the book was released. By the end of year 2015 more than 125 million copies have been sold breaking many records by other authors.
The story line of the book trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey” is of course a love story between a young man and a woman, but to add spice into the whole story, is about Anastasia Steel who is a fresh graduate with a tender heart and wealthy tycoon Christian Grey.
The Fifty Shades of Grey, story stars with a coincidence where Anna has to replace her friend for an interview scheduled for Christian Grey. Shy as ever, Anna walks in for the interview with no clue that her whole world is just about to change in few minutes. Later in the book, the author speaks out this very moment from Christian’s point of view which is absolutely romantic to read as he experiences a love at fist sight at its best when he meets young and nervous Anastasia. He is definitely a man with too much of lust and physical needs, but how he worships Anna as a queen and the numerous mouth gasping things he does for her like taking her in his private jet as the story goes on adds lot of romance and excitement to the novel.
In my opinion, no author has really explored the physical connection between a couple to the extent that E L James has gone. The beauty is that she draws the readers so close to the story line by showcasing the effect each other has on the depth of love while the deepening relationship explore all corners of a sexual relationship between a man and a woman.
After downloading the 50 Shades of Grey pdf, I was exposed to a world where unbelievable amount of erotic scenes taking place including the scenes at the red room.
As you read through the book, your experiences keep elevating as Anna and Christian start falling in love with each other so deeply and madly irrespective of all the circumstances they are faced with. The story has taken a different style where the circumstances and incidents themselves have changed the whole story and added more spice into it, also not forgetting that the circumstances are pretty much different to the usual love stories you either read or watch..
Anna is a college graduate who is so young and unspoiled and when she meets Christian she hasn’t had any physical connection with a man before and Christian on the other hand is young and successful as a New Yorker can ever be who is into submissive relationships and very reserved in nature. As the story line has more of intimidating physical actions by Christian with too much of explanation about each move, the book has been criticized by some around the world. Some argue that rather than been a romance novel, E. L. James has turned 50 shades of Grey into an erotic novel which in turn has caused dame to the novel industry.
In my opinion you have to be quite open minded to read this kind of a book as the author has certainly taken the risk of explicit writing on a very controversial subject. There is also some arguments to say that the novel lacked a story line. It indeed has a beautiful story line which sometimes by passes the explicit scenes while many times you would see the red room events grabbing more attention. For some, the story must have got missed out with this. Right after reading the last few pages of, the Fifty Shades of Grey pdf, I just couldn’t wait till the next day start reading the second episode and quickly downloaded to view it on pdf version. I would say that the 2nd and 3rd episodes of the trilogy showcases more story line between the two even including incidents filled with interest, and thriller.
The trilogy also explores the dark ends of Anna and Christian and show cases how Christian’s life has changed so much due to the unimaginable incidents taking place.. Even if you quite don’t like the possessive nature of Christian with his fame and money, you will start adoring the character as Anna entangles the shades of grey from his early childhood and let you explore the reasons behind his possessive and reserved nature. It is so beautifully explained by the author E L James as to how Anna feels as she discovers the hidden dark corners of this gorgeous man and while I was reading the 50 shades of Grey pdf I couldn’t help but imagining the couple going through those incidents. This Is what I really love about this novel. While being erotic with many explanations of their physical connection with each other, the story is written in a way that Anna and Christian become part of your life with the great addiction to the novel.
This novel has clearly attracted lot of negative publicity due to the too exposed erotic scenes explained. Some argue that the fine line between pleasure and abuse is too thin or non existent while most of the story is predictable. While I would agree with the thought of being predictable at times, the author doesn’t spoil the excitement, love and affection shown for each other in this novel.
With its massive popularity among the international readers, the doors were opened for the movie release for the first episode of 50 Shades of Grey in year 2015. Sam Taylor, the Director clearly had a touch time selecting the main characters for the movie. While Dakota Johnson took the brave decision of becoming Anna, Jamie Dorman was all ready to be the kinky Christian Grey. Amidst both positive and negative comments, the movie has been nominated for golden globe awards this year!
Some people who have never thought of reading the story of Mr and Mrs Grey have got hooked up to the book completely after watching the movie. But my advice is if you haven’t still read the book, you have to first take your own sweet time and read the trilogy and then go for the movie. But as someone who couldn’t help falling in love with the novel, I am little disappointed with the movie, which I think happens all the time when you create your own perceptions while reading and when they do not exist on your own way when the movie is released.
