Content descriptions

General Note:
Originally published: Waxahachie, Tex. : Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House, 2011.
Summary, etc.:
When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind -- until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time.

    Fans of James' erotic Shades of Grey trilogy are literally the only audience for this redundant companion piece. The book is largely identical to Fifty Shades of Grey. Huge sections of dialogue and e-mail threads are reproduced unaltered. But this time, instead of being privy to the inner thoughts of a 22-year-old woman who is being seduced by a BDSM-loving billionaire, we are treated to the thoughts of the guy himself—a guy with a room full of restraints at the ready and a gynecologist on call. In Fifty Shades, the reader is invited to imagine what dark and painful secrets led a man like Christian Grey to shrink from even the tenderest touch. In Grey, Christian recalls the violence he observed and endured at the hands of his "crack whore" mother's boyfriend/pimp. Ultimately, shedding light on his abusive childhood doesn't make Christian more sympathetic or enigmatic. In both books, Ana jokes about Christian's "stalkerish" tendencies. For a young woman being pursued by a guy with his own company and multiple planes, this could be kind of flattering. For the guy who is paying people to hack a recent graduate's flight plan and take away her car, it is childish and controlling and sad in a deeply unsexy way. And, all that being said, there's enough buzz about this sequel to generate demand and warrant buying copies for most public libraries. The novelty, however, has worn off, which means, happily, that not nearly as many multiple copies will be required. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

E L James is an incurable romantic and a self-confessed fangirl. After twenty-five years of working in television, she decided to pursue a childhood dream and write stories that readers could take to their hearts. The result was the controversial and sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. In 2015, she published the #1 bestseller Grey, the story of Fifty Shades of Grey from the perspective of Christian Grey, and in 2017, the chart-topping Darker, the second part of the Fifty Shades story from Christian’s point of view. Her books have been published in fifty languages and have sold more than 150 million copies worldwide. 
E L James has been recognized as one of Time magazine's "Most Influential People in the World” and Publishers Weekly’s "Person of the Year.” Fifty Shades of Greystayed on The New York Times Best Seller List for 133 consecutive weeks. Fifty Shades Freed won the Goodreads Choice Award (2012), and Fifty Shades of Greywas selected as one of the 100 Great Reads, as voted by readers, in PBS’s The Great American Read (2018). Darker has been long-listed for the 2019 International DUBLIN Literary Award.
