Last week, I borrowed and read the book Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. This is her first book of three in the series. This week, I’m reading Fifty Shades Darker, the second book in the series. I already have the third book, Fifty Shades Freed.
I borrowed all 3 books from the library at the same time. However, I paid to see all three movies (my control-freak side) on the big screen. I needed closure to see how their sado-masochistic (S&M) adventure worked out. I have to find the review I wrote of the first movie and I will be writing a review of the book trilogy as a whole.
I read someone’s comment before I saw the first movie that her books couldn’t possibly be bestsellers because they are so poorly written. That commenter was a liar. E. L. James’ books are well-written from pretty sex-novice character Anastasia Steele’s point of view in her turbulent affair with handsome rich young man, Christian Grey.
Another commenter asked why Christian Grey had to be rich. Being poor is not something I want to fantasize about. Fantasy is how we escape a condition we don’t want to be in. Been there–lived that!

I’m still writing a review of Jodi Picoult’s book, Small Great Things. The review is coming soon.
