Here is why the fucking is not very sexy:

Postscript by The Bookman:
Fifity Shades of Grey, which is part one (500+ pages) of three part series of books, was causing such a sensation in the international media a couple of weeks back that I decided I couldn't wait for the paper version to arrive from Random House (publication tomorrow - 5 April) so I bought a copy to read on my Kindle.In a nutshell I suppose I would sum it up as Mills & Book with sex, lots and lots of sex.
The book is primarily about the relationship (especially the sexual relationship) between fabulously wealthy, young (not yet 30) businessman and experienced man of the world, Christian Grey, and newly graduated, unworldly, sweet and innocent especially (in matters sexual) Anastasia Steele. She is an editor at a Seattle publishing house.
One of the things I dislike about reading on Kindle is that you do not have page numbers, rather it tells you the % of the book you have read. So while reading this book I had no idea how long it was but when my print copy turned up this week it turned out to be far far longer than an average novel at 520 pages. It is the first of three parts and apparently all are a similar length.The subsequent titles are Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed.
Having now read all three (it took me a week!) I can tell you that there is a family story running through the books and also the story of some unknown person who is out to harm the two protagonists but essentially the books are about the erotic relationship between Ana (as her friends call her) and Christian and their inability to be together for more than a few minutes without becoming carnally engaged! No matter whether it be in an elevator, a hotel lobby, the kitchen, in the shower or the car, wherever they are they do it! And with gusto.
