Fifty Shades of Grey

Book 1, The Fifty Shades Trilogy

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


When literature student Anastasia Steele is drafted to interview the successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for her campus magazine, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind - until he happens to turn up at the out-of-town hardware store where she works part-time. Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 04, 2013 – Castellucci’s comics-style chapter book explores a misfit friendship with lots of help from Varon’s bubbly, lighthearted artwork. “Feathers not well-oiled!” shouts a caption balloon, reflecting Theodora Duck’s alarm about her hipstery new neighbor, Chad, as she stands over him, “welcome” cake in hand. Chad also makes strange sculptures, has multicolored feathers, and scratches himself with a fork. But after an invitation (“Would you like to look through my telescope?”) and a revelation (“She had never looked so closely at a star”), Theodora discovers that Chad makes a good companion. Varon (Robot Dreams) has fun contrasting Theodora’s prissy femininity with Chad’s slovenliness. When a chance remark from a bystander leads to a rift (which of them is the “odd duck”?), Castellucci (The Year of the Beasts) handles Theodora’s remorse and the friends’ reconciliation with humor and insight. It’s more of a rom-com than a story about juvenile friendship, but silly details like Theodora’s swimming posture exercises (“Teacup did not fall once! A new personal best!”), the ducks’ ridiculously stringy arms and legs, and the careful avoidance of mush will click with the book’s audience. Ages 6–up. Author’s agent: Kirby Kim, William Morris Endeavor.

Customer Reviews

Don't believe the hype!

If you hate Twilight, don't bother with this.

This book started off as Twilight fanfiction. It becomes extremely obvious after a few chapters. Instead of a obsessive and controlling vampire, you have an obsessive and controlling sex maniac. The female protagonist based on Bella is just as bad with the constant lack of common sense, tripping over herself, and inability to define herself as a woman outside of Edw--I mean Christian.

At least with Twilight you got some purple prose. Fifty Shades of Grey is full of juvenile writing, with overuse of the word "murmur". Apparently the characters in this book have a hard time speaking in normal tones.

Even as an erotica, the sex scenes were not well written and failed to evoke any type of emotion other than indifference.

I honestly cannot find one redeeming quality with this book. It is most definitely the worst book I've half-read since Twilight.


This is a great page turner at the start. However, the constant sex scenes get redundant after a while. Like porn, fun at first...but then it's boring.

Men love the book too!

I'm probably one of the very few men that are actually reading this book but I must say its a fantastic read. Although coming across like an very extreme relationship dynamic I think many men could actually learn a thing or two about how to truly look after and care for a woman after reading this book. You can be dominant and loving too and from the millions of women that love this book its clear that they must be looking for modern day men to stand up and lead. It's wonderful to see so many women that want Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew to come to 2012.
