Beebee’s Book Club – Fifty Shades Of Grey by E L James
There’s been a lot of discussion about this book so I’d like to add my twopen’orth.
The plot in a nutshell is that a young, handsome billionaire meets a virginal Uni student and they enter into a relationship – but it’s no ordinary relationship. He only has relationships with women he can dominate in every way and wants her to sign a contract stating that she will be his “submissive” and allow him to do whatever he wants to her, whenever he wants to do it.
Firstly, it’s crammed full of sex – and kinky sex at that! It’s not for the prudish by any means as there are very graphic descriptions of all sorts of sexual deviancies on every other page!
But I think that takes away from what is a very good story – the sex is integral to the plot but basically it’s a love story about a very damaged individual and a naive, unsullied young girl and how their experiences and personalities shape each other.
It is part of a trilogy and is followed by Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
I downloaded all three books onto my kindle and read them within a week. I was gripped from start to finish – and no, not because of the sex!!
I would definitely recommend all three books. I can’t wait for the film which is currently in production – although I might have to wear a dirty mac to the cinema!!
