I heard about the book through my yahoo group, Newlyweds at Work. I was intrigued because they call it the "Mommy Porn". =) So, to satisfy my curiosity, I downloaded the complete trilogy. As I go through the first part, I was introduced to the Dom-Sub relationship. I didn't know this existed and after doing a quick Google search, I was led to the very dark world of BDSM. It is scary, really.
Anyhow, though this book does contain some, okay, a lot actually, of erotic scenes (not for the fainthearted) - the entire story line is, surprisingly, done in good taste. The love story of Christian and Ana maybe highly unusual but one cannot ignore the fact that they are both crazy about each other. I actually felt the electricity between the two the first time they met. Like innocent Ana's inner goddess, I applaud whenever Ana's agreed to another, yet, of Christian's weird sexual acts and my heart (and knees) melted when the domineering Christian slowly gave in to "hearts and flowers".
I wasn't able to put the book down and actually finished the trilogy in one day. I must say that I find this way even better than the Twilight series. Yeah, I know, I'm a sucker for love stories, even unusual ones.
Now, I've heard that the book will soon be released into movie. I wonder, though, how they will be able to portray the steamy scenes from the book. And another huge question, who are going to portray the characters of Christian Grey and Anastacia Steele? I'm leaning towards these two to play Christian and Ana:
|Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder from the Vampire Diaries|
But then, I wouldn't say no to these two either.
I cannot wait to see the film,err, maybe they could just make it into an HBO series or something, so the producers could get all the good parts in and not chop off parts of the book like they usually do.
