This is up there with one of the worst books I have ever read. Later on I found out that it was actually Twilight fan fiction, minus vampires. Christian Grey is the perfect man with no personality, is a billionaire, a concert pianist, can make women climax by breathing on them and falls for the plain Jane but has daddy issues. And is into BDSM. Apart from ideas about what next to buy at Peaches and Cream, this book has no other entertainment value. Don't buy into the hype.

"This book is awful."
1 stars"

Do not read this book.

If you want to read smut go on the internet.

There is better smut there.

Smut that is free.

Smut that is well written.

Smut that does not romanticize an abusive relationship.

Google is your friend.

Go forth and find better smut.

Fifty Shades of Grey is THE worst book in existence. Wish I had never read it – feel that I have wasted part of my life. Badly written and disgusting. If I never see the words ‘Oh my’ together in a sentence again, it will be too soon. Don't waste your time like I did. This book doesn't even earn a star rating from me!

When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind – until he turns up at the store where she works part-time. He invites her for dinner, and soon they are on a passionate journey which will take them to places they never imagined… Romantic, page-turning and hugely liberating, Fifty Shades of Grey is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

Author Biography:

E L James is an incurable romantic and a self-confessed fangirl. After twenty-five years of working in television, she decided to pursue a childhood dream and write stories that readers could take to their hearts. The result was the controversial and sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. In 2015, she published the #1 bestseller Grey, the story of Fifty Shades of Grey from the perspective of Christian Grey, and in 2017, the chart-topping Darker, the second part of the Fifty Shades story from Christian's point of view. She followed with the #1 Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller, The Mister in 2019. Her books have been published in fifty languages and have sold more than 165 million copies worldwide. E L James has been recognized as one of Time magazine's "Most Influential People in the World" and Publishers Weekly's "Person of the Year." Fifty Shades of Grey stayed on The New York Times bestseller list for 133 consecutive weeks. Fifty Shades Freed won the Goodreads Choice Award (2012), and Fifty Shades of Grey was selected as one of the 100 Great Reads, as voted by readers, in PBS's The Great American Read (2018). Darker was long-listed for the 2019 International DUBLIN Literary Award. She was a producer on each of the three Fifty Shades movies, which made more than a billion dollars at the box office. The third instalment, Fifty Shades Freed, won the People's Choice Award for Drama in 2018. E L James is blessed with two wonderful sons and lives with her husband, the novelist and screenwriter Niall Leonard, and their West Highland terriers in the leafy suburbs of West London.
