Fifty Shades of Grey book 1 - erotic fiction by Vintage Books - review by kitty91

Introduced me to a whole different side of sex!

If you're looking for something different than your regular romantic novels, give this a try. It might open up your mind to something new that you might just enjoy.
Good series
Poor word use and very repetitive
Wrong impression of BDSM
Rating by reviewer:
useful review
I must admit, the only reason why I picked up this book in the first place was because of all the hype on it. I wanted to know what it was all about. I was hearing about how sexy this book was and how it was changing normal housewives lives! Well, most of what I was hearing was, for the most part, true, if you haven't experienced BDSM! Aside from it being a little long, it was an okay book. I read it in a little less than a week. It opens up your mind to a whole different side of sex. I started researching it and it has added more spice into our sex life! The book is somewhat hard to believe since a college student named Ana walks into a billionaire's office and the man practically falls in love with her. Yeah, kind of hard to believe, but hey, a girl can dream.

I do agree with some of the other reviews that I have read that just because some people like BDSM, it doesn't mean that they are messed up or emotionally damaged! I hate/love how it ended. It does keep you wanting to read the next book, but then again, why does she end up crying like a fool when she knew that was all he wanted from her?

I'm going to read the next book just because I hate starting a series and never knowing how it ends. Are they going to work it out or stay together? It's pretty hard to tell.

The sex scenes in the book are not all that. I mean, they pretty much do all the normal positions that we do. Maybe in the next book it will change up. I was thinking it would have more hardcore sex scenes in it, but it was just regular hand/toy whippings. For the world, this book will really help open people's minds to other ways of sex & kinkyness.

I wouldn't buy this series. If you really want to know what all the hype is about, just borrow it from a friend.
