Am I the only one who thought Christian was black?
I imagine him to be dark skin... Still reading it maybe I'll get more details
I never got the impression he was black, but if your profile picture is any indication, I am assuming you thought he was because it is easy to imagine the hunky male lead within our same race. I'm sure if you asked somebody who is of Asian descent, they probably pictured him looking more like them than I pictured him looking white or hispanic or black or any other race. Does that make sense?
I pictured him more of Alex Pettyfer look alike or Ian Somerhalder, but i'm Asian ;)
no, i'm picturing him as looking like one of those Hemsworth guys
The book described him as African American, So yes I did get the feeling that hes black. Still reading the book . Who knows ;D
Who would you want to star as Christian if this was ever a movie?
"Your stare was holdin', Ripped jeans, skin was showin' Hot night, wind was blowin' Where you think you're going, baby?"
- CARLY RAE JEPSEN
Christian in the Red Room of Pain? ;)
i know this is random but did anyone read the Twilight fanfic version that she wrote of this?
where do you find it?
I did.. And she didn't change a thing. Which makes me really mad. For those who know that this was a Twilight fanfic first, they'll see the resemblance right away. It makes me mad that James is making so much money of this book--- which is basically a Twilight rip-off.. for older people... :/
POLL: Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Who Should Play Christian Grey? http://poll.fm/3rht8
I am pulling for Henry Cavill, Colin Egglesfield, or Matthew Bomer. After watching a film short on movie couples, I can also see the arguement for Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson (though Robert is not Christian-like to me). I also kinda like Peter Porte. His career is fresh enough that it might not kill his brand image if the film is bad.
How big part of the book has sexual content?
I will say 75% is sexual content, but it still has a good story.
How big part of the book has sexual content?
I really loved the story, and it's not really S&M, it's a love story about a damaged guy and an innocent girl... I can't wait to read the rest of the books. I think it's one of the best love stories I read this year. All the sexual scenes were very graphic and filled with passion. I think it's a great book.
Passion? Love? There's very little of either. Sex - yes. Romance - no. If you think this is a 'love' story then you may not have experienced real love. There's no tenderness. Christian Grey doesn't understand that.
He is not a typical guy in a love story ready for love and tenderness, but I think that seeing how he will fall in love and change is very important. I think it's a love story because Ana loves him very much even when he is dark and damaged. Isn't "love" the highest form of devotion? Loving someone even though they are filled with horrible uncharacteristic?
As for me not experiencing "true love" John, it's a bit too personal and improper for you to say that to me when you barely know me. Don't you think so?
ugh this going to be a movie !?....... no... leave this in novel form ].]
It's better this way, you know they can't Include all the (cough) stuff that's in this novel. look what happened to The Hunger Games O.o
don't get me wrong I love The Hunger Games to death, but the movie will never replace the book, this goes the same Fifty Shades ( even though I do admit that this book has some poor word choices) But I still love the story plot XD
Addictive novel...gripping and exciting...waiting for...what next?..A must read book...:)
There are few books I've ever come across which make people angry. This is one of them. I can actually begin to understand those that want to do book burnings of it. My wife was angry at the author because of her writing style. Tell not show; constant repetition; constant use of UK expressions for a US character; Grey? Most of it is white! I was angry at the publishers and retailers. How dare they produce a book with so many spelling and formatting mistakes? If it was ever edited then the editor is incompetent. Why did retailers place this sex book in so conspicuous a display. I found it right in the doorway of a major supermarket.
We read it and the other two books because we wanted to find out why it proved so attractive to readers. We are still mystified in a way but have a sneaking suspicion that it has shock value and that BDSM in it draws in the same way as a horror book draws. There is a plot - but not a very obvious one.
This book is a revolting pile of shit. I find it equally fascinating and utterly disturbing that this has become the coveted "mom book" phenomena that every publisher craves.
I've had the displeasure of reading excerpts of it, and several discussions regarding the "less than satisfactory" writing quality... and I have to say..
This is the biggest pedophilia con that has ever graced pop-culture. There are many articles/blogs/discussions on the matter, and it's in plain sight. The so-called 21 year old woman is not a woman, she is a child. The girl is depicted as being stupid, fluttering about with no emotional or physical maturity. (She has no sexual experience, she has apparently never masturbated, she has never had an orgasm, she has never had alcohol.)
She talks like a girl. Skipping, cartwheels. She is a naive immature child, who is then brutally abused sexually, beaten and told what to do and when.
Garbage. I can perfectly understand this being fan-fiction, frankly I expect this trash to be in the dark corners of fan-fic... But for this to be a super-phenomena lauded by all media outlets available? What the fk is going on?
this series is just disgusting. I read the first one, but couldn't even stomach any more.
First one is actually addictive but second and so forth was kind of mellow..anyway but finished all and done with..:)
Has anyone watched the movie "Secretary"? Fifty Shades of Grey is copied from that movie, the main character's name is Mr. Grey as well.
That very movie was the one I had in mind while reading this book. Although I think the movie is best because both characters are 'not so sane' when they meet. Love that one, by the way.
I thought I was the only one who noticed try Kim Basinger's 9½ Weeks it's so SO so much like the first book :) and so graphic. To tell you the truth Secretary freaks me out a bit... they are very disturbed couples.
Started reading the book just to see what all the hype is about and not even 100 pages in, I just don't see what's so wonderful about this book. Christian Grey doesn't seem sweet or handsome at all. He seems like a self-centered pompous ass. The writing style falls flat and the plot just isn't keeping me interested enough to want to continue reading. I'm probably not even going to finish this trash heap and just finish reading Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire. At least her characters aren't so one-dimensional and Travis is actually quite the sexy man I love reading about in romance novels.
