    Question(s): Would color cease to exist if everything were viewed only in 50 shades of gr_y? BTW are grey and gray the same?
    Somedays I see only shadowy gr_ys but then on others I see vivid colors.
    Nothing at all to do with the book only it’s title and my abstract thoughts…..

    The book is interesting for two main reasons. One is that it shows how, if you get the hype right and do your marketing you can still sell the paper form of books.

    The second is that it is opening the eyes of both sexes to the other facets of sex. I sat next to a young lady on the London Underground, who was openly reading the book yesterday. I wouldn’t read a top shelf magazine there. Idid comment politely to the lady and she gave me a smile.

    By the way, I used to be a pilot and the scenes where Christian flies Ana in his plane, aren’t very realistic. I doubt if EL James has ever sat in the right hand seat of a small plane. That really turned my late wife on. Especially when we had an engine failure in a single.

  4. I too read the book after it was handed to me by a coworker. On several occasions, I fell asleep while reading the sex scenes. I spent a lot of time wondering WHY so many women thought the book was so great. I didn’t get it… I hadn’t thought of the contract aspect- that’s interesting. I think Christian Grey appeals to the nurturing side of females most of all…. He’s a rich and powerful man, yet to Ana he’s emotionally vulnerable in a way he’s never been- deep inside, he’s just a scared little boy who needs to be cared for. Within their relationship, she has a tremendous amount of power (security) – which of course she is a little too naive to realize, but the rest of us see it.
