50 shades of Grey have swept women off their feet, as millions of books were sold out in record breaking seconds worldwide!
Our protagonist Anastasia Steele is a young bright student, who spends her time deep in Jane Eyre novels and working hard towards her University degree. The book begins as Ms Steele meets Mr Christian Grey, CEO of his own company, multi millionaire and we are given the impression that his looks certainly have an effect on women of all ages!
Anastasia is thrown when Mr Grey offers her everything she has never had, a brand new car, laptops, first edition books, and glamorous, expensive clothes! His controlling and bossy ways take its toll on our heroine, as she struggles to speak and stand for herself!
The book's author, E.L James, has a way of writing that makes you want to dive into the book, and to give the girl a good shake! This book is heart wrenchingly painful to read at times, from a woman's point of view, but you also find yourself sympathising, shocked, happy and bewildered by the end of the novel!
It is hard to put down, but not for all the good reasons! Read on to the second and third chapter of the trilogy, if you dare, where you might find yourself sifting to Mr Grey's brazen attitude. He may suprise you!
