Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

Yes, I did.  I fell into the hype.  I'll have you know, however, that I didn't rush out and buy the book.  I actually waited in line on the public library reserves list.  And starting at number 1,053 (or somewhere around there), I slowly moved to #1 ( much faster than I thought I would...) and picked up my copy at the library.  Okay, so yes, I read it in a week.  And okay, yes, I have gotten on the reserve list for the second book in the series.  I wouldn't say it's a fabulous book, and the writing is average at best, but something about it IS pretty addicting...

Book description on Amazon:

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.
