“This is the sexy (and sometimes very kinky) fantasy set in Seattle that started out as Twilight fan fiction before morphing into a self-published ebook, and now Vintage (with whom the author inked a seven-figure deal) has published the paperbacks, which are currently topping the NYT‘s bestsellers list EL James’s erotic novels are earning comments by readers who consider the books everything from execrable to engrossing. Yep, the movie rights have already been sold for a cool $5 million with speculation on who will play the lead characters…”
I just finished the first book of the trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey” and I’m starting the second one “Fifty shades darker”.
I’m definitely not a Twilight fan and I was prejudiced against “50 shades of gray” but when I started it I get addicted so easy. It’s just overwhelming and you can’t stop reading and wanting more and more. I’m even not sure what exactly I like about this book because the story is not ingenious at all but obsessing.
Angelina Jolie is rumored to be in talks to direct the film version but yesterday I read that she is also keen on playing a lead character, the one of Anastasia Steele. I like Jolie very much but really can’t imagine her in this role. The speculations on who will play the lead man role – Christian Grey – are even more, including Ian Somerhalder, Colin Egglesfield, Matt Bomer, Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling as the last two are my personal favorites!
Who is your Christian Grey? And what do you think about the world madness about ’50 shades’ trilogy?
