Fifty Shades of Grey
The fastest selling books of all time have caused quite a controversy in the media, whether it be criticizing the book, or praising it. Having read the books myself I can see how many people are outrages by it. Yes the language is very explicit and it conveys wrong morals/messages in some chapters, but all-in-all, it’s very entertaining and keeps the readers wanting more. Many women across the country are hooked on this book and can’t put it down! Every woman who’s read the books now has their own interpretation of what the erotic and allusive Christian Grey looks like etched in their minds. Who wouldn’t want a man like him!? (aside all the psychological problems) he’s everything a woman would want! I don’t think no woman could turn around and say they weren’t the slightest bit jealous of Anastasia Steele for capturing his heart!
Reading these books I laughed, cried and was even jealous at writing on a page! But that’s what books are all about, they’re supposed to make you feel different emotions, that’s what makes them brilliant! In all fairness though, the books are actually written to their best potential. In actual fact, many of the scenes in the first book are actually taken from the film ‘Pretty Woman’ so the author can’t have had much inspiration if they copied it from a film.
But what if the author is actually a man? A man who’s published under a false name. I mean, let’s be honest. It’s every mans dream to have a woman do the sort of things that are mentioned in the book. No man would ever turn it down! So let’s explore the theory of ‘ EL James’ being a man. To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised.
The books have caused grief for many married couples, but at the same time enhanced some too. Some marriages have actually ended because of the books, because women thought they could find a lot better than what they already had. But some couples have actually used the books to improve their relationships, sending favourite snippets of the chapters to each-other and also using e-mail services instead of texting, mimicking the book. Which is why it’s caused controversy in the media. All the stories about how it’s to corrupting for young people’s minds and how the language is too explicit to be in a book, but if people like reading it, who cares what the media think!?
So if you’re looking for an exceptionally good read, or just looking for an erotic series of books. Then ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is the perfect read for you!
