Based on some reviews, I thought this book would be a thinly-plotted, loosely narrated jumble of sex scenes, but since I kept hearing about it everywhere, I decided to read it anyway; I didn't want to be the only human on Earth who hasn't. Boy was I wrong! Although there IS a lot of sex in this book (a LOT!), the main focus is the relationship between Ana and Christian. I'm not saying it's great literature--it's not, but I recommend this book to anyone who can handle (or likes) erotic writing--this one is definitely worth reading.
