This story is not geared towards young adults, but everyone of all ages are skimming the pages through this erotic book about sexual fantasies and falling in love. British author, E.L. James, wrote this book with hopes of it being on every bookshelf across the world. This novel has been on top of the New York Times bestseller list and now Universal Pictures and Focus Features have purchased the film rights for this novel for five million dollars.
The 50 Shades of Grey book series has three novels: the first is 50 Shades of Grey, followed by 50 Shades Darker and 50 Shades Freed. Every other page is filled with erotic movement and kinky remarks between a man and a woman falling in love in a controlling and dominating way. This book has women wanting their man to be more like the lead male character, Christian Grey.
“It’s much more than what people expect it to be and it’s really different than most books, but different in a good way,” Colleen Stewart, junior exercise major, said.
The novel is about a young naïve college grad, Anastasia Steele, who steps into the office of one billionaire, Christian Grey. Their chemistry leaps off the page, by capturing their sexual relationship with each other and by getting to know each other in their own ways.
Throughout the novel, James uncovers secrets about Grey’s past that keeps the reader wondering why Steele and Grey’s relationship is so complicated. Their relationship has a twist that no reader would ever expect.
Grey persuades Steele to become his submissive partner while he plays the dominant role in her everyday life. Grey’s charm, dominance, controlling and passionate feelings make many women in America love him and want to be with him.
“That book made me so comfortable with the things I do,” Ali May, junior finance major, said. “Everyone needs a little Christian Grey in their life.”
The book has the whole world talking about why everyone is falling in love with the dominant Christian Grey. Don’t worry: as soon as you read it, you will soon be obsessed just like the rest of the world.
