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 happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time.Let me first state, I know that there are a lot of different opinions on this book out there, and I would love to hear everyone's point of view, but please keep it nice in the comments, cause I know this book can euhm create some big arguments.
I would rate the book 3.5 out of 5 I think (rounded of to 4 then). The beginning of the book was alright, up until about the first 100 pages you get some insight into Ana's life and how she is perceiving Christian from a distance and him slowly becoming part of her life. The further the story progresses, the more you get an insight into Christian's life when Ana starts to unraffle all of his secrets - yes those secrets the book is famous for, but also more taunting secrets of his past.
Sure, some of the scenes in the book I really wanted to read through fairly quickly (not all of them are that bad though), hence not giving it 5/5 stars. But the reasoning behind why Christian is like this - as far as you get to know in the first book - is really interesting and it gives the book an extra dimension. Last side note, the grammar in the book is quite bad for a published book, but I tried to ignore and that actually worked out alright, it didn't bother me all too much.
I'm going to read the second book and most likely the third book as well, but other books will have priority definately. Any of you who read the book, wants to read the book or would never ever read it? Let me know in the comments!
