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.

Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.


This story is simply WOW! The very first challenging book I’ve read so far. I’ve planned on reading this a year ago but always been delayed for it’s long and well, at that time, isn’t in my liking. But after seeing the trailer of the movie which is based on the book, OH MY! Christian Grey is so so hot. So I hurriedly grab the book, well, in my case, my smart phone for I’ve been reading the ebook edition, and read the story.

I think I don’t need to iterate how SPG this story for mostly all of us knows already. Who wouldn’t right? Christian Grey is that popular. Hehe.

Before reading the story, I’m already expecting some SPG scenes, but I’m still baffled and shocked for I was never expecting those scenes could be that erotic. Well? Curious eh? Haha, you’ve got to read it for yourself.

I gave this book a shining shimmering 4 stars for weirdly, I liked it. Pardon me, I didn’t like the story because of those erotic scenes but well, honestly, I don’t even know. Pretty weird eh? Just as I was starting reading the story, I can’t help my giggle. I like how the story starts. It is somewhat contagious. Their chemistry with each other is so strong that I can’t help but wish that I was Ana. Oh Christian Grey, can you be mine? (olahlala!) hahaha

I really feel triumphant for having to finish this story. 😉 Why would that be? Well, I wasn’t really struggling on finishing the book; though there were several times that I want to hit the heroine myself. You’re asking me why? Well, simply because she’s an idiot. I don’t like her character. Sometimes she’s smart and most of the times she’s stupid. She’s very hook up to Christian, and well, I cannot blame her for that. And I sometimes picture her as a perv and always IN for S**. Haha, censored. And by the way, what’s with inner goddess? I am almost suspecting her as the heroine in this story. Hahaha lol.

Wow Grey, your pocket never runs out of supply huh. Very boy scout! (:D only those who have read can relate) Can’t get off the line, “funny peculiar or funny haha”. I know there’s nothing special about it, but I just find it funny!

I’m not really sure how I feel about the ending. But I almost want to cry with Christian’s pleading. Well, I’ll stop it right there for I might spoil your reading. For me, the ending is the saddest part for the both of them huhu.

Some of my favorite lines from the story:

“I’ve never wanted more, until I met you” – Now, who wouldn’t want to melt if this line was thrown at you by Christian Grey himself! <3

“Don’t leave me. You said you wouldn’t leave me, and you begged me not to leave you, in your sleep” Ohhhh, I want to kiss you now Christian Grey. Hahaha, now I’m sounding like an idiot.

The story doesn’t say anything about what happened to Christian and how he became a sadist and masochist, so in its second book, I’m expecting those things to show up. And I’m looking forward on reading it.

Final Thoughts
This is a very adult-like story, and it needs an open mind and of full understanding. Some says it’s porn while some likes it as much as I do. Well, what can I say? It’s all on a person’s point of view.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
