I have been hearing about the Fifty Shades trilogy more than a month ago. I just keep hearing how sexy this book was, and to me anything sexy is a must do or read in my little black book. I remember happily getting a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey with my son in tow at the National Bookstore over at Mall of Asia one Sunday evening.
And I finished the book within two days, I could have finished it earlier – but I had to work!
For some this book may be quite too raunchy since it is the first book that openly describes different forms of S&M. Sex is already a very conservative issue that most would rather not touch on at all, and reading about handcuffs, riding crops and those two magical silver balls – well can be too much to handle for some.
I, on the other hand, enjoyed every sordid detail of the first of the Fifty Shades series.
If only, there was a Christian Grey that you can play around with after reading it. Life would be so much better.
I will unabashedly admit that I do enjoy a bit of S&M when I was still with you-know-who. Sex was the only department in our marriage that deserves a gold medal if it were a sport. But, of course marriage cannot just revolve around sex right?
I then went on to buy Fifty Shades Darker and got an online version of Fifty Shades Free. And yes, I have to admit that these books are porn made for women and the women at heart. It does tackle a sensitive S&M issue, but it does adds flavor the existing vanilla flavored ice cream that every one else is having.
E. L. James certainly did an awesome job of feeding and VOICING OUT a lot of women’s fantasies. Who would not want to have a man lavishing your desires at a whim? Aside from the carnal images that the details of the book engrains in a reader’s brain, we all love that notion of happy ever after at the end of the story – no matter how freaky the road is.
Right now, the women and women at heart of the world is now waiting for this book to jump into life in the big screen. This book has become so big that there are now “candidates” on who would play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey best. In my mind, Christian Bale is the perfect guy to play Christian Grey, owing perhaps to my age and how lecherous and badass he was in American Psycho and Batman. But if you base it in the book, he may be too old to play Mr. Grey, who is a 27-year old self-made billionaire.
Right now, I am just indulging what intellectual sense that I have with another book. But, it won’t be long that I’ll be reading Fifty Shades again for my own worldly pleasure…
