"Christian Grey's candid narrative gives the familiar story a raw, passionate and much sexier context ... the Ana that Christian Grey sees: sexy, seductive, witty and in his own words "a siren". She displays a compelling blend of vulnerability and backbone and finally feels like a character women can get behind ... Best of all the book allows readers direct access to Christian Grey's deepest, darkest thoughts ... It is fascinating to read the story with fresh eyes too, having glimpsed Christian's traumatic childhood and gained an understanding of his motivations. More realistic and far racier than anything EL James has written before, Grey was definitely worth the wait. Frankly it gives the first three books a much-deserved spanking." Daily Express "I love, love, loved it!" -- Liz Jones The Mail on Sunday "This new book, as with the trilogy and the movie, puts women's sexual desires out into the open, which can only be a good thing." -- Liz Jones The Mail on Sunday
