Let's get one thing straight. This book was NOT well written. There were at least 5 things the author kept saying over and over and over and over again that were really annoying and stupid (inner goddess anyone?) Sometimes I would read a sentence and the next sentence would just be a paraphrased version of the sentence before it. Awful.That being said, I got sucked in. I didn't want to, but I did. Christian Grey is about the least romantic person on the planet. I don't really know why Ana wants to be with him, other than he's rich and hot. Doesn't make sense to me. But just like I was inexplicably drawn into the story, she is drawn to him.I could definitely see the inspiration from Twilight. It's all really very silly. But as I said, I was hooked and really kept reading to see if Christian was going to come around and want a real relationship or if he was going to stay a complete weirdo jerk and not let Ana touch him. Of course, there are 3 books, so I'm not really sure why I thought that whole issue would be resolved by the end of book one. Oh well. I'll keep reading if I must.
