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

The First Installment

For E. L. James' first book, this isn't very bad. I can admit I was stuck for a little while, but this book is very interesting. I would recommend it to my friends.
Good reading material
Not too realistic
Rating by reviewer:
somewhat useful review

Content / Style / Audience

This is the first book of the trilogy, and where Anastasia Steele meets Christian Grey. Anastasia Steele is a literature student and when her friend gets sick and can't do an interview, she asks Ana to do it for her. Ana didn't know what was in store and found herself drooling over Mr. Grey. Throughout the book, Ana is determined to get Christian, visa versa but Christian wants her when he is ready.

This book is more geared towards the readers that like romance and sex scenes. This is a good book for someone's first book ever, but this book isn't something that more advanced users would want to read, maybe more for beginners.

Follow-up commentary
I'm going to read it over again but as of right now it's collecting dust with my other books. It's still in great condition , no rips or anything.

    I know, This review sucks honestly, but I don't really know how to explain a book, and I don't like to spoil it for others.

    ChuChii, for a book review, give some details as to what your liked or disliked about it. What was realistic vs. what wasn't. Did you relate to the characters? How was the plot line? Just some points. Thanks for the review!
