   Review: The Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy by E.L. James

Book Description of book One (via Goodreads):
When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

 My Review:
Going into reading this series, i was a bit reluctant because of how alot of people in the media called it like "hardcore erotica" which is not really my cup of tea. But since they are making it into movies i did want to get it a chance, and i am beyond glad i did. First of all, if you like me are reluctant to read this because of how it is described in the media and such, don't be its really not THAT bad. I mean, yes there is erotica, and some other things I'm sure everyone knows about already but i discovered when reading this that the storyline was much bigger than those parts. So for me the storyline, which at it's heart is actually a story of discovering the love of your life in maybe the most unexpected of situations, or finding them at all when you don't deserve love at all. These books gave me so many emotions, i would one minute be laughing at one scene and the next scene crying, or one scene be happy with whats going on and the next scene be saying "oh hell no!". Christian Grey is, well to say the least, a very complicated man with a very sad and complicated past. But at his heart, when he lets his guard down, i think he is every woman's dream guy. Yes, sometimes i wanted to smack him, but other times i just wanted to hug him. And i think every girl can relate to Ana in some way. She is a very normal girl, just finished college, trying to start a career, and then she is in one meeting thrust into a world she had never imagined. And one she is not sure she can be in. I loved seeing how Ana was able to break down the hard shell Christian had put up (mostly), over the course of the 3 books, and see how different he is in book 3 than he was in book 1. Yes he still has his issues, and considering his past and childhood I'm sure he always will, but he has went from being a guy who see's women as only good for one thing really to a unexpected romantic who falls in love and falls in love with everything that brings (even if he is raging mad at first). And that is all because of Ana. Who i found to be very strong, she goes through alot of things in these books that I'm not sure i could go through, some of it degrading to her, but she always seems to work things out for the better and she ends up with what every girl dreams of. These books will definitely be added to my favorite's list. I can't wait to see how they are brought to the big screen. I think everyone should gives these books a chance, because like i said at its heart its a hard-core love story. And that's the most important thing of all, i think Christian and Ana prove in these books that maybe love can conquer all.
