Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, Fifty Shades of Grey is a novel that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever.

When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating. Convinced that their meeting went badly, she tries to put him out of her mind – until he turns up at the store where she works part-time, and invites her out.

Unworldly and innocent, Ana is shocked to find she wants this man. And, when he warns her to keep her distance, it only makes her want him more.

But Grey is tormented by inner demons, and consumed by the need to control. As they embark on a passionate love affair, Ana discovers more about her own desires, as well as the dark secrets Grey keeps hidden away from public view …

      I was very disappointed after all the hype by the Mills and Boon writing, jazzed up with a bit of sex.

          I read the book after everyone told me it was great. I guess I got caught up in all the hype. I thought the characters were engaging but the overall sexually nature wasn't that shocking as everyone made me believe. Each to there own though.

          Very poorly written. Little character development. Predictable. Repetitive.
          Possibly THE most annoying, clichéd, weak female character ever. EVER! Definitely NOT the ideal role model for our daughters. As bad as Bella from Twilight. Oh, wait...
          Well done to the author for getting this far. It's every fanfic writers dream, and you've done it.

            was disappointed as I think it was hyped up so much I expected something brilliant but it was similair to a lot of other books I have read, but it was an easy read and I quite enjoyed it nevertheless.

              Comments about Fifty Shades of Grey:

              This is not normally something I'd read but I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I must admit I enjoyed the read. The storyline was engaging, I liked the characters or rather the nymphos. The sex scenes are quite explicit, be prepared for lots sex, klinky toys and stamina that most mere mortals couldn't keep up with. I must admit I enjoyed the authors sense of humor via the emails back and forth between the two main characters which shows a playful side to the dark Mr Grey. . I've read all 3 books and will read them again.

              It was an interesting read from a different lifestyle perspective, but a poorly written novel that didn't compel me to buy the sequels.

              Service and delivery comments:

              E-books are fantastic! Thanks for making it easy.
