Introducing 'Mr.Grey.'


So after listening to all the hype of '50 Shades of Grey,' and being lent a copy of the book by a friend, I decided to download the whole trilogy to my Ipad and find out why the fuss about the books classed as 'Mummy Porn.'
One major criticism was that is is badly written, something which I cannot comment on as I only scraped through with a C on my English Language O'Level!!
I am no virgin to saucy literature either, having read Emanuelle in my teens in short bursts after sneaking it from my parents bookcase.
So for those of you who are not in the know, the story revolves around Anastasia Steele, a literature student who becomes involved with Mr Christian Grey, a successful and  handsome entrepeneur.
Having so far only read to chapter ten, I have not been fully introduced to the 'Playroom,' or the 'Red room of pain,'but only the breaking in of naive virginal Anastasia, but I am still hooked.
I find the relationship between them electric.  I'm sure we have all had those moments when you have seen someone so damn good looking you almost lose your breath.  I practically followed someone round Asda one day, but was distracted by the cupcake aisle.
This book has thrown up some concerns.  Firstly, what are all those metal objects suspended from the ceiling in Kevs garage?  Are they really for DIY and fixing the car or do we have a green garage of pain?
Secondly, can I ever go to the local hardware shop and purchase cable ties, electricians tape and a length of rope without being given a funny look?
Its my wedding anniversary this weekend. Maybe I shall give Kev a treat. Ply him with champagne, tie him to the bed, blindfold him, put my Ipod in his ears with Abba on continuous, then bugger off to the pub and leave him there all night.  Now that's what I call control :)
For those of you still interested, here is a list of the songs played during different parts of the story.
