Anyone reading or already read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy?

I'm about to start the third and final book and I was just wondering if anyone else has read it. At first, I wasn't sure I'd like the book but once I started, the story really hooked me. I don't particularly like to read some of the graphic details but other than that, it's a pretty good story. It's easy to read and it's entertaining. There is always some sort of twist and when you think everything is okay, it's not and the book surprises you. I can't wait to read the last one but at the same time I'll be sad that the series is over. Although, some of my friends have told me that at the end of the last book it says the end for now... So hopefully this means the author will add more books because I really have enjoyed the series so far. I don't want to give too much away about them because I'm not sure if there's anyone out there right now reading them or planning on reading them. I was just curious to see if there's anyone else who likes the books or has anything to say about them.

I'm on the third one now! Everyone has been talking about it so I just had to give in and join the band wagon. Although the series is a easy and entertaining read I could do away with half of the graphic scenes. I feel like every ten pages it's another graphic scene. The movie - if they decide to actually make it - will either be rated N17 or they might have to cut out a lot of those scenes. Should be interesting to see nonetheless! Hope you are enjoying or enjoyed the third book!

I know right? Sometimes I get annoyed when almost every other page is describing those scenes lol. I still enjoy reading the books though, even though those particular scenes are annoying. I really can't wait for the movie. I'm interested to see what they'll do with it. I'm sure they'll be able to show parts of the graphic scenes in the book, but I'm sure the filmmakers will cut back on the number of those scenes for sure. I know that at the movies I certainly won't want to see those types of scenes every 5 seconds in the movie lol!

I have heard of the series. My sister-in-law has recently started reading it. I'm not sure how far along, but she did seem to enjoy it. I have to admit that I'm a little curious, to say the least.

Definitely give them a chance! The story is actually pretty good and once I started reading, I really liked the relationship between the two characters. I'm kind of sad now that I finished them because I don't have anything good to read lol

Hi Courtknee, I really want to read the series. I've nit read it, but I heard my SIL talking about it with people on Facebook.

It's a lot better than I thought it would be. At first I didn't like it because I couldn't stand the main male character. But as I read it more I got really into it. The only thing that I don't really care for is the some of the explicit scenes described between the couple.
