30 Day Book Challenge: Day Twenty Eight – Last Book You Read.


The last book I read was ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ by E.L. James.  I have considered putting a review of it up here, but I’m still not sure.  It is huge at the moment, and that is what led me to read it – I wanted to know why it was big.  I really enjoyed the book, but also came away from it feeling a bit confused as to why I liked it.

I don’t think that there is a point in providing a synopsis of it here.  It’s so big that you would have to be living under a rock to not know the basic premise of the story.  I will say that it was not what I expected, based on what I’d read online.  I can kind of see both sides to the argument – both for and against the book.  I went into it with an open mind and with a firm resolution to see it only as a fictional work and I think that was why I liked it.  But like I said, I’m still a bit confused.  It was fun and didn’t take a lot of brainwork to follow the plot.  At times I felt a bit bored, at others I laughed and I will admit that when Ana was presented with the contract I wanted to her to morph into Sookie Stackhouse and start laughing at it.  I don’t really see the harm in it, but I can see where some critics are coming from.

I also didn’t fall madly in love with Christian, unlike a lot of readers.  He is kind of creepy and over the top, but I thought the romance was okay.
