Fifty Shades of Grey – what’s all the fuss about?
A lot of my ex-colleagues from the UK have been prattling on for the last week or so about this “Fifty Shades of Grey” and so curiosity finally got the better of me today…
Okay, so I’d already worked out it was a book from one the recent comments “Seriously I cannot put this book down…. Christian Grey you have a lot to answer for!!!”
I took a quick visit to Amazon.com and found this:
“Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever …
Daunted by the dark secrets of the tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Ana Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a US publishing house.
But desire for Grey still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, she cannot resist. Soon she is learning more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades than she ever thought possible.
But while Grey wrestles with his inner demons, Ana must make the most important decision of her life. And it’s a decision she can only make on her own …“
So now I’ve learned it’s a series of three books, it’s also going to be a movie (if it isn’t already) and apparently, it’s a bit on the raunchy side.
If that doesn’t give you any clues then this clip below of Ellen Degeneres recording the Audio Book version may help
One final question – is there any chance it will steam up my Kindle screen?
