I started to read 50 Shades of Grey that everyone has been speaking about and to be honest, at first I thought that it was going to be one of those boring drawn out stories but once I started getting to the uhm “interesting parts”, it got a whole lot more entertaining. Needless to say that the I have finished all of the books. So here is my 50 Shades of Grey books review
I have been thinking to myself if it is actually all the sex and descriptions that have got woman around the world buying this book in the thousands or the dear ladies at the old age homes requesting this book more than any other as some newspapers are saying. I have come to the conclusion that there is more to this. While this may be some of the attraction, its mainly the thrill that the characters are doing what many people fantasize about but would never do like having sex on a piano, a boat or in an elevator. The book glosses over sex and there are going to be a few disappointed ladies out there that think that the first time they have sex it is going to be all fireworks and roses when most people’s first time is spent trying to figure out where what goes and how to actually do it.
The thing that seems to draw woman, from the ladies that I have spoken to that have read the book, is actually Mr Grey. Christian Grey. Here is a super rich man that has everything, sends flowers, loves sex, and doesn’t have to worry about the nitty gritty parts of life say like cooking or wondering how to pay the bills. He is a tortured soul and one finds oneself wanting to find out what he is about inside as this puppy is a real piece of work. He appeals to the female side of sending cute emails and texts and declares his love, in his own way, in so many ways that it has woman that don’t really get all that are sitting up and taking notice. His ideas of seduction I have heard are being used by many ladies on men and I have been told that the guys out there are loving this! My problem with this aspect is that all that doesn’t happen as often in real life and that there are going to be quite a few broken hearted women out there. If he tried some of controlling side on me, like telling me what to eat, boy he would get his butt kicked out the door so fast he would not know how he landed and there are many other people out there that would also not accept it! But we do in the book because it’s in the book but some poor should in the real world may be in a controlling situation and may read the book and think that it is normal as she has no one to talk to or discuss it with.
Anyway, it think it’s a good series and I have my debates on who should be Christian Grey and the cast in the upcoming movies but we shall see! Laters, baby!
