Fifty Shades; Buy at your own risk.

2 Nov

How rediculous that sounds when you purchase a book -whole series, to be precise- at a fairly high cost and then you find yourself reading it in a skip-the-page way?
Well, Fifty shades does that, or to me atleast. I read about it everywhere, on the list of bestsellers and everywhere else and seeing that it is the fastest selling series worldwide and has broken the well-kept record of Harry potter, I decided to buy it.
The story begins as 22-year old Anastasia Rose Steele, for the first time, encounters a young and a handsome (as described by the writer) bachelor, who’s been the top businessman too, Cristian Grey. Anastasia (Ana) is completely thrown aback by his beauty. She’s there to interview him for some student magazine, on behalf of her bestest friend, who’s her roomate too, Katherine. Then, a sexual attraction is developed between the two and Ana finds it hard to repel him but soon after she comes to know of Cristian’s real demands and khowing that she can’t fulfill any of them, She leaves him.
Cristian Grey, a man never known to back-off, sets another contract with her ’cause even he wants her by now and really wants to develope a relationship with Ana.
Knowing that she can’t ever forget him and also that he has changed a bit just for getting her back, she agrees to that contract and there it goes again, the bad stuff, that seems endless throughout the series.
What I really don’t understand is that how come this book can get sooo off-limits? Honestly, it can make you feel regreting buying the series. Besides, there are too many flaws in the book that it makes one wonder wheather the characters actually take-up their as-described-by-the-author-personalities in any way? For instance, you won’t find Cristian Grey to be away from Ana for more that just half the page you read whereas, he’s described as the top businessman and according to that, he should be an all-time worker, which we don’t get to see much while reading.
Other than that, there is way too much repetition of words and phrases from the writer, e.g, ‘Holy cow’, my subconscious’, ‘Good point well made’ and many more.
By and by, this is not what you call a decent book. So, if you are a good reader then you need to read good books not the bad stuff that’s in this series. You need to read authors like, J.k Rowling, Paolo Coalo etc.  So, whenever you find yourself heading toward a book store and to the shelf containing ‘Fifty shades’, you need to stop and rethink before you decide to purchase any of it and put your money to garbage-can. And, still, if you choose to buy this, you’re buying at ‘your own risk’.
