Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy by E. L. James

Synopsis: 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.
My thoughts: O.K. I’ve finally read this book, but as everybody read it already or know the story, I won’t do the traditional and do my “synopsis” of the book. I read the trilogy firstly because of my friend that kept telling me that I should read it, that Christian Grey was a hot man and all and secondly because I was really curious to know what was all the fuss about. I’m going to write about the three books here.
                When I was reading the first book, what really caught my eyes was the plot. The whole BDSM scenario was very unique and gave space for women to talk freely about what they liked in bed and so. But the bad language of Mr. Grey and the stupidity of Ana really got on my nerves! How can she trust a man that tracks her down wherever she is, controls her and she just goes with the flow?! “Obviously because he is rich and beautiful and a god in bed.” PLEASE! I had to stand the whole reading until I finally got used to the bad language. If he wasn’t rich, would you at least look at him? The only part that I agree is with the bed part. He really seems to nail that down. The end was quite surprising because I didn’t think that Ana would do what she did, but SHE ASKED HIM TO DO IT! For god’s sake, if he told her that it was better not, and he’s a pro in it, then LEAVE IT ALONE!
                The second book, I wanted to slap Ana across the face. She COULDN’T stay two pages without telling that she loved him and would give her life for him. OKAY, I get it, next! I grew very tired of all that thing. What really liked was that we finally understood why Christian was like that: his past was very dark, twisted and quite sick, in my opinion. Imagine his mom when screwing with other women?! That explains why he goes to the therapist A LOT. He gets cute in that one. That was the beginning of me liking the character.
                Last, but not least, the last book. I’ll have to admit it: I JUST COULDN’T FINISH. There I said it. She is just so dump that I just couldn’t read it, despite the fact that Christian was becoming cuter and cuter. My friend wanted to kill me. (LOL) What made me give up: the fact the book had to be ENHANCED in other languages in order to be sold in book shops. I met a Brazilian girl that told me that she could read it in English perfectly despite the fact that she has a very Basic knowledge in the language. I was like “WHAT?!” Then I found out – actually it was in the middle of the first book – that the author made the book based in the Twilight series. Ok, I liked the series, but couldn’t she be a little more authentic?!? The only thing authentic in that s*** was the plot about mature content!
                Well, I have to say that I’m kind of disappointed with all that. I mean, there are SO many great books all around the globe, but only this kind of novels get to the level of becoming movies. I REALLY hope that they make a good movie. It’s the least they can do right now. Let’s pray that they choose a good screenwriter and cast to make it at LEAST worth it.
