A few months back, I finished reading the 50 Shades Trilogy. I was hearing a lot of rave reviews about it before so I decided to snoop around the internet to see what it’s about. Originally, I thought that it was a romance/love story, much like Twilight, well, it was… in a way. But after a few research, a friend told me that it was “porn for soccer moms”. I don’t know what to make of that but after my cousin’s persuasion and out of curiosity, I downloaded the ebook version and started reading.

It was okay at first. By chapter 5, it was getting a little bit uncomfortable to read. Haha. I can be a prude, I guess. Anywho, the story is basically about a girl named Anastacia Steel. She’s about to graduate from college when she interviewed a stinking rich business mogul, and apparently hotness personified, Christian Grey. Long story short, they fell in love with each other because based on what I read they seem to be two of the most beautiful people who have walked the streets of Portland. The thing was, Christian was into S&M, spanking, sex toys, blindfolds, and all sorts of kinky stuff. The book was 60% sex and 40% story. It is very graphic, I think.

The three books showed how the love story progressed. It also discussed why Christian is 50 shades of fucked up. The always turned on twosome also had to deal with horrible bosses, irritating exes, arson, rules, touching, and all other erm sexual and weird stuff. One thing that rings true is that the lead characters, Ana and Christian, can’t keep their hands off of each other. They will do the deed anywhere and anytime. As in, they’d do it in the middle of the day in a meadow if the situation called for it. I now understand why all the girls and women who’ve read it are all hot and bothered about Christian Grey and his smoldering looks.

Anyways, I think the book was okay. Not good,Β good but I must say, it was very… informative! I heard that they’re making a movie based on the book. I guess the movie might get more dudes in the cinema if it’s gonna be as graphic as the book. It’s a toss up between Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer for the role of Christian Grey. I personally think, Matt Bomer should do it but that’s just me.

He definitely looks like he aims to please. πŸ™‚
