In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world. Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty - until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him - past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian's cold, wounded heart. Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?

About the Author

After twenty-five years working in TV, E L James decided to pursue her childhood dream, and set out to write stories that readers would fall in love with. The result was the sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, a trilogy that went on to sell more than 125 million copies worldwide in 52 languages. In 2012 E L James was named one of Barbara Walters s Ten Most Fascinating People of the Year, one of Time magazine s Most Influential People in the World, and Publishers Weekly s Person of the Year. Fifty Shades of Grey stayed on the New York Times Best Seller List for 133 consecutive weeks, and in 2015 the film adaptation on which James worked as producer - broke box-office records all over the world for Universal Pictures. E L James lives in West London with her husband, the novelist and screenwriter Niall Leonard, and their two sons. She continues to write novels while acting as producer on the upcoming movie versions of Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.


"Christian Grey's candid narrative gives the familiar story a raw, passionate and much sexier context ... the Ana that Christian Grey sees: sexy, seductive, witty and in his own words "a siren". She displays a compelling blend of vulnerability and backbone and finally feels like a character women can get behind ... Best of all the book allows readers direct access to Christian Grey's deepest, darkest thoughts ... It is fascinating to read the story with fresh eyes too, having glimpsed Christian's traumatic childhood and gained an understanding of his motivations. More realistic and far racier than anything EL James has written before, Grey was definitely worth the wait. Frankly it gives the first three books a much-deserved spanking." * Daily Express * "I love, love, loved it!" -- Liz Jones * The Mail on Sunday * "This new book, as with the trilogy and the movie, puts women's sexual desires out into the open, which can only be a good thing." -- Liz Jones * The Mail on Sunday *

Marianne Vincent on
Grey is the fourth book in the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James. It covers the same territory as the first book in the trilogy, but from the perspective of Christian Grey. So the reader gets the first encounter between Anastasia Steele and Christian, and the development of their relationship, all from his point of view. This is interspersed with bits of business the millionaire does, giving the reader a window into his character, and hints about his early life.
Grey seems to be both attracted to and annoyed/angered by Anastasia Steele’s sassiness and independence, a theme James labours to the point of irritation. Other reviewers have mentioned how Grey seems to give his penis a separate identity; and his alter-ego constantly admonishes him in italics. Again, there’s a lot of biting of the bottom lip. The email banter is sometimes quite witty and fun, and it does manage to take up a goodly portion of the 500+ pages.
Even readers who pick this one up as cheaply as $1.50 (and the current going rate must say something about the quality?) are unlikely to want to spend another 500+ pages of reading time on further additions to this trilogy: this really is a too-generous serve of Christian Grey. For diehard fans only.

I found this interesting reading it from Christian's point of view & am looking forward to the next 2 books from his point of view. It does give you a sense of De Ja Vu though. If you have the first 3 book. I would add this to your collection.
Loretta Matthews on
Thoroughly enjoyed this book although some parts were already touched upon in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy. I hope there will be 2 more to get the perspective from a man's point of view. E.L. James if a fantastic writer and hopefully the rest of this trilogy is more enthralling.
