I’ve mentioned in one of my posts that I am intrigued with Fifty Shades of Grey. To cut the story short, I have decided to read the book. It took me 2 nights (because I don’t read books on mornings) to finish it.
To sum it all up, I like Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s definitely not your typical romance story. And the main reason why it’s great… simply because it’s not the usual. There’s definitely romance in the story, but you need to read between the lines in order to experience that toe-curling-romantic-feeling.
This is my first time to read a book under ‘Erotica’ because reading sex in detail is not my cup of tea. Mind you, there are some parts featuring BDSM as the main character, Christian Grey, is a self-proclaimed ‘Dominant’. He wanted her no doubt. She wanted him too. But she is not what he thought she is. And that’s where the problem lies. The romantic inclination of this novel is on parts where Christian tries to bridge the gap between them. Being a ‘dom’, it’s not easy for him to make adjustments, but he does it for Ana. There are tons of romantic gestures that he did so that they could be together.
I am so into this book. But I am not recommending it. Firstly, it’s not suitable to young readers. Secondly, it’s not a good read for people who are not open-minded. There are taboos on this book apart from the BDSM. They are not yet thoroughly discussed on this book, but if you are not open in reading on what is not morally and socially acceptable on the society, then this is not for you. I’m very sure that you wouldn’t like it. This is good for adventures (like me!) who likes to read, read and read no matter what the story is.
Just a piece of advice, keep your mind open. Yes, there are negative reviews (in fact, there’s a ton!) because this book is not the usual kind.
