Reader's Annotation: What will Anna do once she meets Christian Grey?
Summary: Anastasia Steel, an about to be recent graduate of WSU-Vancouver has to interview Christian Grey of Grey Enterprises INC. She is immediately attracted to him but there is something mysterious. What happens to Anna once she finds out what that is?
My Evaluation: I can definitely see why this book is popular and to be honest the "erotica" part of it wasn't all that bad. I've read worse romance novels! So people are making a big deal over nothing. I don't know if this was just the speaker I was listening to (I listen to this as an audio book) but I found the writing, extremely juvenile... it reminded me a lot of Lauren Conrad's books and writing style. I probably won't read the rest in the series.
