If you have not read at least the first book, then grab a copy from Amazon and see what everyone has been talking about the last few years, and see why the upcoming movie is already causing a lot of buzz even though it isn't due out until Valentine's Day 2015. There are a few related books below, so if you've read the 50 Shades series already, you will most likely enjoy these other books!
So if you don't know, then you may ask, What is Fifty Shades of Grey about? Well it is about SEX! Actually, it is about an adult couple in love with each other, who are very sexually attracted to each other. The man is named Christian Grey. He is a very wealthy business man who has been through some sexual ordeals as a boy. He has a need to be a dominant sexual partner and therefore needs a submissive sexual partner to complete this consensual partnership. Ana Steele happens to walk into his life, and she is his "type" so there is an immediate attraction. He is a powerful and good looking man, and she is attracted to him as well. While he is fully into this BDSM lifestyle, she is very sexually innocent. She wants to keep some control over their relationship but he longs for her to submit to his every command.
While this is indeed a sex book, it isn't the sole focus, and readers report that they enjoyed the dynamics in Christian and Ana's relationship. Since this book does contain a lot of sex scenes, it is not for children and probably not for some young adults. However, this book started out as a Fan Fiction story written using the characters from the popular Young Adult book and movie series, Twilight! Yes, that's right, Christian = Edward and Ana = Bella! Both male characters are strong and controlling, and have a life that very few others ever experience. Both females are innocent and somewhat awkward and less than perfect, although they are eventually equals in the relationship.
So who has been cast to play Christian and who has been cast to play Ana? Dakota Johnson will play Anastasia "Ana" Steele. Jamie Dornan will play Christian Grey. There was some talk at one point about casting Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, the Twilight stars! You can read more about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie on wikipedia.
Now, enjoy the trailer for the upcoming February 2015 movie, Fifty Shades of Grey!
