This was a book that I picked when it first came out before the controversy of the details of the story. When i first read it, it shocked the hell out of me and I was like 'Woooooow'. But the general storyline of the book wasnt that bad and even the characters, Ana Steele and Christian Grey had something that E L James was determined to develop their relationship even further. Simply put, its has very extreme elements of sexual desire but that it balanced throughout the whole series.
Ana Steele is a Uni girl and she has the opportunity to interview the billionaire, Christian Grey. She doesn't what he's like and she hasn't even heard of him, only that he has put money and funds into the University. When she meets Mr Grey, her world changes and she stumbles onto something she has never encountered. She has had relationships before NEVER like this.
Christian Grey is a well-respected and controlled entrepreneur of the 21st Century. He is dedicated to his work and his life aspirations, but when he meets Ana Steele, he sees her as another brunette woman and one of his submissives. However there is something different about her, but he cant put his finger on it... He continues to see her and she accepts, both of them are curious.
Together, Christian presents a contract - he the dominant, she the submissive and i think you can guess where the contract lies within the relationship. Though Ana is scared and deeply shocked at the thought of being involved something and someone such Christian Grey.
This book shows the beginning of their relationship but also the context of it. To be honest with you, the contract got repetitive and the only thing that wanted me to continue is the story of both Christian and Ana's relationship. Fifty Shades is Christian's nature and thus begins his downfall and the journey for himself and for Ana.
