Story
What did you love best about Fifty Shades of Grey?
The story was good. Moves very quickly. Christian starts off as a bit of an asshole, but if you hold out it gets better. Enjoyed the books. Saw the movie yesterday. It's very graphic and awkward for a first date movie. They leave nothing to the imagination. The movie does not have even a quarter of the detail the book has.

I loved the character build up, the inner dialog, how the characters traverse their inner struggles aloud and build off the emotion of the moment. The book is extremely sexual in content and not at all appropriate for children, teens, or people of sensitive sensibilities.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades of Grey?
Just listen, is what I want to tell you, but I suppose I would say I love the moment when Christian and Anastasia first go flying, they fight about her car, and laughed aloud at some of their back and forth banter.

Which scene was your favorite?
I listened to all three books, and have seen the first movie. In the movie, frankly I was a little uncomfortable in a packed theatre on my first date in over three years. I love that Anastasia sticks up for herself. She holds her ground. Christian can be such a protective gentlemen one moment but he is too used to getting his own way and has a hard time being in a relationship with a woman who doesn't want to be at his beck and call. Seeing him grow up, them fall in love, lose their paths, and work through troubles is interesting and dramatic.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was stuck on it straight through. The books are hard to put down, they have a plot beyond just the sex scenes that truly make the series what it is. Yes, the books have a lot of filthy language, extremely descriptive scenes, and the couple talks out their sexual preferences in detail before really getting started but it has a plot that is ever thickening.

Any additional comments?
Love the narrator! Palm twitchingly mad about the movies ending.
