James A great book spoiler sent in by J. They are both on the cusp of graduating from WSU, where Kate is a journalist for the college paper. However, she comes down with the flu and gets Ana to go to Seattle to do the interview in her place.

Then they go home, argue over whether Ana gets to go to work the next day.

The story, in case you forgot, centres on a sexually sadistic CEO who introduces a shy student seven years his junior to the joys of nipple clamps and butt plugs. The original novel, published in , was always disconcerting, but re-reading it amid the ongoing flood of testimony to the abuse of male power makes one’s mind boggle that there was ever a good time for this unsavoury hymn to workplace harassment.

It starts when literature undergraduate Anastasia is sent by her student newspaper to interview the secretive entrepreneur Christian Grey as a major benefactor of her university, he hands out the degrees at graduation time. Here’s what happens when they share a lift: He lunges at me, pushing me against the wall of the elevator. Before I know it, he’s got both of my hands in one of his in a vicelike grip above my head, and he’s pinning me to the wall using his hips Sweet,” he murmurs, each word a staccato.

Christian doesn’t mention the episode afterwards; Anastasia wonders if she “imagined it” the “paperwork”, by the way, turns out to be a non-disclosure agreement that he makes all his prospective “submissives” sign.

I stopped after the first book, not because the series broke me, but because there was really nothing left to write about. Harry Potter sold million. This one is simple.

None of this really revolutionizes the familiar black best friend trope white love stories usually trot out.

The story line of the video centers on Zayn and Taylor inside the famous St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London, and finds Zayn playing himself somewhat, dealing with the paparazzi and such. The two sing to each other post break-up Swift flaunts a lingerie outfit for her new music video. YouTube The video, like the erotic movies, are shot with a similarly smouldering, gloomy theme.

The premise of the video seems to be that Swift and Malik are going through a very public break up which they agonise about in separate hotel rooms. Despite the song obviously being about two ex-lovers, the accompanying video features next-to no scenes of the two together. One of the few scenes the two singers share. But, back to the video. He tosses polaroids, throws glass vases against the walls and slams a lamp to the ground. Staring at polaroids and remembering better times. YouTube Taylor on the other hand smashes mirrors, runs her fingernails down backboards and rolls around her luxurious hotel bed with more angst than a year old.

The two of them have chemistry, and go on a few dates, but Grey is kinky, with an interest in BDSM, and Ana is a virgin who veers a little prudish. He buys her a laptop and a car and shows up at random locations in her life to woo her. She experiments with his dominant proclivities, but is ultimately a little uncomfortable with it when he spanks her and she realizes how much he enjoys it. She leaves his apartment.

We can interpret it to mean that women would like their sex lives to be more interesting.

Online Fifty Shades Freed has been tagged as the third and final film in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, but fans have long hoped that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson would reprise their roles in the event of a fourth film. Advertisement Express reports that EL James recently released a fourth book in the franchise, titled Grey. The novel rehashes the events in the first book, only this time from the perspective of Christian Grey instead of Ana.

The book has led to a lot of speculation on whether Dornan and Johnson will reprise their roles for one more film, but early book sales might kill any chance of a movie adaptation. A post shared by Fifty Shades Freed fiftyshadesmovie on Nov 9, at 9: At its peak of popularity, James sold close to , books in a single week.

11 Reasons Women Are Obsessed With Christian Grey [50 Shades of Grey]

So, it was with little trepidation that I picked up or rather, downloaded a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey by E. To be honest, I was pretty excited to see what all of the hype was about. Fifty Shades of Grey was to me, quite the disappointment.

It made Twilight look like War and Peace.

In the UK, it’s the fastest-selling book ever in both physical and ebook incarnations. There’s just been an extra print run for the UK market, to meet demand: It’s the fastest selling adult novel of all time. By which they mean “it’s the fastest-selling novel of all time that isn’t Harry Potter”. But its content is, of course, rather adult. The trilogy features Anastasia Steele, who falls in love with Christian Grey, a troubled young billionaire who likes sex only if he can accompany it with quite formal, stylised corporal punishment.

The narrative drivers are pretty slack — improbable dialogue “I’m a very wealthy man, Miss Steele, and I have expensive and absorbing hobbies” ; lame characterisation; irritating tics a constant war between Steele’s “subconscious”, which is always fainting or putting on half-moon glasses, and her “inner goddess”, who is forever pouting and stamping ; and an internal monologue that goes like this … “Holy hell, he’s hot!

Is it his looks? Civility puts me in a blue funk too. In normal circumstances, it would be lazy, but here, it is more like a shorthand. James writes as though she’s late for a meeting with a sex scene. Here, her voice is quite different:

Publisher Cornerstone part of Random House announced this week that the erotic novel has sold in excess of 5. The book has remained in the top slot in the UK bestseller lists for the 16th week running. Combined UK sales for the trilogy are in excess of 12m copies, with rights to the book sold around the world and published in languages including Albanian, Chinese, Russian, Serbian and Vietnamese.

But is it right? Proving sales across platforms independently is very difficult as there are so many outlets.

This is the kind of a book where, instead of saying things, characters muse them, and they are somehow able to muse them matter-of-factly.

I tell the story from the beginning of the trilogy from Christian’s POV. I’m starting to wonder whether I will actually hear anything from her tonight. I fucking hate waiting, I fucking hate the idea of having to go back to Seattle and forget about Miss Steele. I don’t think I will be able to forget about her. This is really starting to piss me off and I’m contemplating calling her myself when my phone rings yet again.

How nice to hear from you” I say in my much seductive voice. Taylor has joined me from the adjoining room with my schedule and is fucking glaring at me like I’m an alien. Where would be convenient for you, sir? I can already imagine the delectable Miss Steele shackled to my bed in my playroom — oh what I could do to you Miss Steele. Shall we say nine thirty tomorrow morning?

Yeah baby, I have that effect. Suddenly I am in a much better mood, but I also have a hard on from imagining Anastasia in my playroom. Taylor has managed to stop glaring at me and has assumed his professional demeanour.

Getty Images Fifty Shades Darker has earned plenty of criticism for its inability to present a credible depiction of heterosexual sex, lipstick removal , or Vin Diesel fandom. But there is one thing the sequel actually gets right: Just how crazy can this get?

He seems to tolerate his parents and actively disdain his sister. During one meeting, Christian sits at the head of the conference room, furiously texting Ana. The way she quickly returns her attention to the meeting is like a visual reminder of something Ros has probably known to be true her entire career: Christian is a cartoonishly unqualified and unprofessional boss. Back at her small Seattle publishing house, Ana has her own black work wife:
