Universal Pictures and Focus Features produced an American film adaptation , which was released on 13 February , [2] and also received unfavourable reviews even though it was a box office success. The second and third volumes of the original trilogy , Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed , were published in A version of the novel from Christian's point of view, Grey: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian , published in November , is the fifth book in the series.

Her best friend is Katherine "Kate" Kavanagh, who writes for the college newspaper. Due to an illness, Kate is unable to interview year-old Christian Grey, a successful and wealthy Seattle entrepreneur, and asks Ana to take her place.

Ana finds Christian attractive as well as intimidating. As a result, she stumbles through the interview and leaves Christian's office believing it went poorly. Ana does not expect to meet Christian again, but he appears at the hardware store where she works. While he downloads various items including cable ties, masking tape, and rope, Ana informs Christian that Kate would like some photographs to illustrate her article about him.

Christian gives Ana his phone number. Ana replies that she is not dating anyone. During the conversation, Ana learns that Christian is also single, but he says he is not romantic. Ana is intrigued, but believes she is not attractive enough for Christian. Later, Ana receives a package from Christian containing first edition copies of Tess of the d'Urbervilles , which stuns her.

Later that night, Ana goes out drinking with her friends and ends up drunk dialing Christian, who informs her that he will be coming to pick her up because of her inebriated state.

Ana leaves with Christian, but not before she discovers that Kate has been flirting with Christian's brother, Elliot. Later, Ana wakes to find herself in Christian's hotel room, where he scolds her for not taking proper care of herself. Christian then reveals that he would like to have sex with her. He initially says that Ana will first have to fill in paperwork, but later goes back on this statement after making out with her in the elevator.

Ana goes on a date with Christian, on which he takes her in his helicopter, Charlie Tango , to his apartment. Once there, Christian insists that she sign a non-disclosure agreement forbidding her from discussing anything they do together, which Ana agrees to sign. He also mentions other paperwork, but first takes her to his playroom full of BDSM toys and gear.

There, Christian informs her that the second contract will be one of dominance and submission , and there will be no romantic relationship, only a sexual one. The contract even forbids Ana from touching Christian or making eye contact with him. At this point, Christian realises that Ana is a virgin and takes her virginity without making her sign the contract. The following morning, Ana and Christian again have sex.

His mother arrives moments after their sexual encounter and is surprised by the meeting, having previously thought Christian was homosexual , because he was never seen with a woman.

Christian and Ana plan to meet again, and he takes Ana home, where she discovers several job offers and admits to Kate that she and Christian had sex. Over the next few days, Ana receives several packages from Christian.

Fifty Shades of Grey (book)

She and Christian email each other, with Ana teasing him and refusing to honour parts of the contract, such as only eating foods from a specific list. Ana later meets with Christian to discuss the contract and becomes overwhelmed by the potential BDSM arrangement and the potential of having a sexual relationship with Christian that is not romantic in nature. Because of these feelings, Ana runs away from Christian and does not see him again until her college graduation, where he is a guest speaker.

Ana and Christian once again meet to further discuss the contract, and they go over Ana's hard and soft limits. Christian spanks Ana for the first time, and the experience leaves her both enticed and slightly confused.

This confusion is exacerbated by Christian's lavish gifts and the fact that he brings her to meet his family. The two continue with the arrangement without Ana's having yet signed the contract. After successfully landing a job with Seattle Independent Publishing SIP , Ana further bristles under the restrictions of the non-disclosure agreement and her complex relationship with Christian. The tension between Ana and Christian eventually comes to a head after Ana asks Christian to punish her in order to show her how extreme a BDSM relationship with him could be.

Christian fulfils Ana's request, beating her with a belt, and Ana realises they are incompatible. Devastated, she breaks up with Christian and returns to the apartment she shares with Kate. The Fifty Shades trilogy was developed from a Twilight fan fiction series originally titled Master of the Universe and published episodically on fan-fiction websites under the pen name "Snowqueen's Icedragon".

After comments concerning the sexual nature of the material, James removed the story from the fan-fiction websites and published it on her own website, FiftyShades. Later she rewrote Master of the Universe as an original piece, with the principal characters renamed Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and removed it from her website before publication. Good on her—she's doing well. That's great! This reworked and extended version of Master of the Universe was split into three parts.

The first, titled Fifty Shades of Grey , was released as an e-book and a print on demand paperback in May by The Writers' Coffee Shop, a virtual publisher based in Australia. The Writers' Coffee Shop had a restricted marketing budget and relied largely on book blogs for early publicity, but sales of the novel were boosted by word-of-mouth recommendation. The book's erotic nature and perceived demographic of its fan base as being composed largely of married women over thirty led to the book being dubbed "Mommy Porn" by some news agencies.

Many other erotic works quickly became best-sellers following Fifty Shades ' success, while other popular works, such as Anne Rice 's The Sleeping Beauty trilogy, have been reissued this time without pseudonyms to meet the higher demand.

James its best-selling author, replacing J. Rowling , though worldwide the Harry Potter series sold more than million copies compared with Fifty Shades of Grey 's sales of 60 million copies.

Fifty Shades of Grey has topped best-seller lists around the world, including those of the United Kingdom and the United States. It has received mixed to negative reviews, with most critics noting poor literary qualities of the work. Salman Rushdie said about the book: It made Twilight look like War and Peace. Princeton professor April Alliston wrote, "Though no literary masterpiece, Fifty Shades is more than parasitic fan fiction based on the recent Twilight vampire series.

And acknowledging that fact — maybe even appreciating it — shouldn't be a cause for guilt. The book garnered some accolades. James was listed as one of Time magazine's " Most Influential People in the World", [37] Richard Lawson of The Atlantic Wire criticised her inclusion due to the trilogy's fan fiction beginnings.

Fifty Shades of Grey has attracted criticism due to its depictions of BDSM , with some BDSM participants stating that the book confuses the practice with abuse , and presents it as a pathology to be overcome, as well as showing incorrect and possibly dangerous BDSM techniques.

Coinciding with the release of the book and its surprising popularity, injuries related to BDSM and sex toy use spiked dramatically. This is speculated to be due to people unfamiliar with both the proper use of these toys and the safe practice of bondage and other "kinky" sexual fetishes in attempting to recreate what they had read. There has also been criticism against the fact that BDSM is a part of the book.

Archbishop Dennis Schnurr of Cincinnati said in an early February letter, "The story line is presented as a romance; however, the underlying theme is that bondage, dominance, and sadomasochism are normal and pleasurable. Several critics and scientists have expressed concern that the nature of the main couple's relationship is not BDSM at all, but rather is characteristic of an abusive relationship. In , social scientist Professor Amy E.

Bonomi published a study wherein multiple professionals read and assessed the books for characteristics of intimate partner violence , or IPV, using the CDC's standards for emotional abuse and sexual violence. The study found that nearly every interaction between Ana and Christian was emotionally abusive in nature, including stalking, intimidation, and isolation. The study group also observed pervasive sexual violence within the CDC's definition, including Christian's use of alcohol to circumvent Ana's ability to consent, and that Ana exhibits classic signs of an abused woman, including constant perceived threat, stressful managing, and altered identity.

A second study in was conducted to examine the health of women who had read the series, compared with a control group that had never read any part of the novels.

The authors could not conclude whether women already experiencing these "problems" were drawn to the series, or if the series influenced these behaviours to occur after reading by creating underlying context. At the beginning of the media hype, Dr.

Drew commented that the book was "horribly written" in addition to being "disturbing" but stated that "if the book enhances women's real-life sex lives and intimacy, so be it. In March , branches of the public library in Brevard County, Florida , removed copies of Fifty Shades of Grey from their shelves, with an official statement that it did not meet the selection criteria for the library and that reviews for the book had been poor.

A representative for the library stated that it was due to the book's sexual content and that other libraries had declined to download copies for their branches. In a public library there is usually very little that would prevent a book from being on the shelf if there is a demand for the information. In February , the Malaysian Home Ministry banned the Fifty Shades of Grey books shortly after banning its film adaptation after permitting them for three years in local bookstores, citing morality-related reasons.

Charlie Hunnam was originally cast in the role of Christian Grey alongside Dakota Johnson in the role of Anastasia Steele, [61] [62] but Hunnam gave up the part in October , [63] with Jamie Dornan announced for the role on 23 October. The film was released on 13 February , [2] and although popular at the box office, critical reactions were mixed to negative.

‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Author E L James Pens New Novel: ‘The Mister’ Arrives In April

But it's about getting the time to get it done. But I definitely think there could be another story coming from The Mister. A lot of literary purists still turn their nose up to the romance genre.

Do you think Fifty Shades has helped with that at all? I read a lot of historical romance novels in my thirties when I was traveling on the tube into London. I usually had to bend the cover back because it's usually a bloke with a woman with her clothes falling off, and I didn't want anyone to know what I was reading. Which was why Fifty Shades had a tie on it, because it was really, really anonymous and people wouldn't know what you were reading.

I think anything that's centered around a female audience that has a female sensibility about it is derided I don't think that's going to change. But I will say that it's a huge, huge industry.

It's not for everybody, but there's room in the market for both. How do you deal with criticism? Have you been bullied? I think when you have a barrage of criticism coming at you, that's kind of difficult, especially when you've just written this thing for yourself.

Especially now, when you have social media and you have everybody and his dog coming at you with an opinion, you're like well, it's done I can't change it.
