This is one of those books, that I just had to read after all the negative publicity. I had to see what all the hype was about. I loved it! It's not all about the sex like everyone made it out to be, there is also a story there in the background. Don't get me wrong, there is LOTS of sex, but also a story about Ana finding herself. There are some great snarky lines, and I loved the way she incorporates the emails into the book. I am completely captivated by Christian! I laughed and experienced heart ache right along with them. I had to start the second book immediately. Can't wait to see what happens in the next one!
