I was slightly obsessed reading this trilogy. I knew zero about it before I started but it was all over the Internet and blog-sphere that I gave it a go and when I did I seriously couldn't put it down. Some may think its a tad embarrassing to admit that they loved this book but the story really wasn't about the "erotica" for me. I loved the non stop drama, clever arguments between the two main characters and the suspense of each story line through the series. I would love to divulge into the story more but I also don't want to put out any spoilers out there for the people still reading the trilogy. To all the haters out there that said this was a mock of Twilight, I cant fight back. I have never read or seen any of the Twilight Trilogy. I also never read Hunger Games - GASP! Vampires and futuristic styles are not for this gal. I enjoyed this book simply because it was an easy read, a peak into the world of the rich and in each chapter I was left wanting to know what happens next can't things just be as simple as that. Why do we over analyze everything to pieces??? Perhaps the writing was a bit lackluster for descriptions of wardrobe and sometimes repetitive but it was purely entertaining. Since this story has been featured everywhere lately, naturally talks about it becoming a movie (Universal supposedly paid $5 million for the rights) are already in the works. I however can't decide if it would be better fitted for the big screen or a television serious like SATC on HBO. I almost prefer the series just because it can be extended to leave nothing from the trilogy out as what takes place in most book-movie adaptations. Every chapter could be an episode leaving us on cliffhangers each week! But seriously the most important part is who would play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, never-mind the rest of the cast??? Or even better - who would play Mrs. Robinson!
these are my picks - who are yours???
Ryan Gosling - OBVI choice for Mr. Christian Grey
Lilly Collins - Gorgeous & innocent looking - perfect for Anastasia Steele
Ellen Barkin as Mrs. Robinson
Jay Hernandez as Jose
Shantel Vansanten as Kate
Amanda Segrfied as Leila
Wentworth Miller as Elliot
