That book that everybody was talking about, yeah, I caved into curiosity.  So I go to my local Kroger and buy a copy.  I always get a high when I buy a new book, “A new adventure with interesting people to read about awaits”, I tell myself with every book I buy.  I did it for the Hunger Games, and that couldn’t have been any truer.  I hope Fifty Shades doesn’t disappoint.  So I open the book and start reading.  The font is very promising, gives the book a very crisp look.

Ok, enough of talking in present tense.  I’m about 400 pages into the book, so you can tell that it has me hooked.  Reading about Anastasia and Christian is very interesting, and not just for the BDSM-charged atmosphere between them.  Although, I do have a hangup with Anastasia (so really, the author): she uses the same words and phrases OVER and OVER again.  “Holy shit/crap/cow“, “Jeez“, “Oh God”, “Crap/Double crap”, and a lot more examples that I don’t feel like listing.  Seriously, she tosses those phrases around like verbal fruit cake, come up with something different please.  And my hangup with Christian is that he refers to Anastasia as just that almost all the time, while everybody else just calls her “Ana”.  Christian, I don’t know how sophisticated and enigmatic you feel, but you’re in bed fucking a girl, can you please drop all your formality and just shorten her name to Ana?  It makes you look like a creep (well, creep is a pretty accurate term to describe him once you learn more about him by reading the book).

But all in all, I love the book and will read the entire trilogy, and I can’t wait for the movie to come out!
