The Fifty Shades Trilogy - EL James





Fifty Shades of Gray - Book 1
When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.
Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.





Fifty Shades Darker - Book 2
Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. 
But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.




Fifty Shades Freed- Book 3
When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.
Now, Ana and Christian have it all—love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.
Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.


Questa trilogia ha avuto un grandissimo successo nei paesi di lingua anglosassone e ora stà per sbarcare anche in Italia (il primo libro uscirà l'8 giugno con il titolo "Cinquanta Sfumature di Grigio" pubblicato dalla Mondadori).
Nasce da una Fan-fiction di "Twilight" chiamata "Master of the Universe" che ha avuto un successo tale da essere poi pubblicata come romanzo autonomo (cambiando ovviamente i nomi dei protagonisti). 
Rispetto a "Twilight" qui si cambia completamente registro: addio amore casto e puro, questi sono romanzi erotici (con situazione sub/dom, spesso - almeno per me - disturbanti).
Inoltre vi è un altra differenza importante - spoiler - qui non ci sono vampiri.
Quindi, direte voi, non ti sono piaciuti? Tutt'altro, io ho adorato questa trilogia, ero assolutamente catturata dalla sua lettura e non volevo che finisse. 
C'è da precisare che la scrittura non è sicuramente un capolavoro, ma la James sa creare una trama che non ti lascia scampo, riuscendo a controbilanciare scene "fastidiose" e a tratti inaccettabili, con scene dolcissime e assolutamente romantiche.
I tre libri sono strettamente collegati tra loro, spero solo che in Italia non facciano passare anni per la pubblicazione dei seguiti.
