Summer Reading 2014

Fifty Shades of Grey

As a librarian I try to read the “popular” books so I will know what everyone is talking about.  That’s why I started reading Fifty Shades of Grey.  I read the second one because I couldn’t wait to find out what happened to Ana Steele and Christian Grey.  There are a series of three books about these characters.  It is set mostly in Seattle, WA.  Ana meets “Fifty” when she falls through his office door.  She’s only there because she’s helping a sick friend.  Christian introduces Ana to a lifestyle most people don’t talk about around the water cooler, but they do now.  E. L. James, who said in a recent television interview that she wrote this story because she was going through a mid-life crisis, has brought to life the world of BDSM.  (You can Google that.)   I will never order vanilla ice cream without a smile on my face.

    Nice summary, I have had my doubts about whether to pick it up or not. People say it’s bad literature masked with adult themes, but despite that I’m still curious to give it a read. See if you agree with these articles about the books:
