Fifhty Shades of Grey

OMG! I'm reading the book for the 2nd time and it's well written. Some people put it in the same genre as Mills and Boon but I would like to differ because this book is in a class of it's own.

Great Service

Fantastic service.

Fifty Shades

Still the best trilogy I've read to date. It does possess, obssess and stay with me. Wish EL James can write some more books she sure has a great mind.

my oh my!!

Fifty Shades of Grey

According to the ratings the book was very good but when I started reading I discovered that it is just an average book to read and it is not as good as I have expected.

Fifty shades of grey

Brilliant book, would recommend it to anyone!!

Hot stuff

Very exciting read!

I cannot believe that this kind of tripe was published or that it caused the stir it has. The writing is poor, the characters not believable and the story non-existant. I will not be reading the other two books in this trilogy. My subconcious has moved, ashamed that it was subjected to this garbage; my inner goddess took a baseball bat and beat me (no, not spanked but beat) roundly and has warned me not to read kind of rubbish again or face the consequences - TRIPLE #*@%!!!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fabulous - Awesome - I could just read it again!!!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Probably one of the best books I have ever read. Almost finished. And I must admit it is hard to put the book down. Ladies go for it...

what's all the fuss about?

very simple writing and if you are used to more sophisticated writing it could get a bit tiresome but it is a book that has made quite some noise so if for nothing else read it to see what all the fuss is about....

Love It

Thanks for the quick delivery for my order. Excellent Service.

Exciting

50 Shades of Grey

Very addictive, interesting and I can't wait for the next 2 books.

Judith Roussouw Review

I am thrilled with my purchases! The best thing I did was to join Kalahari because I find it so easy to shop with them. I look forward to my next purchase.

Outstanding

It's an amazing book. A bit graphic so maybe not for everyone but I have manage to read all 3 books in 2 weeks as I just could not but it down. :)

Oh Mr. Grey

LOVED IT!!!!!

Fifty Shades of Entertainment

I wanted to read the book to see what all the hype is about. Very soon I was ensnared in a love story that resonated well with me. Look, the writing is not good, so no need to wait for a Pulitzer Prize, but the emotions could be as real as thunder and lightning. I was deeply saddened at the end of the book, but also admired Anastasia for her courage. Hence, the reason that I'm now reading Fifty Shades Darker. I will continue this journey with Mr Grey and Miss Steele until the end or a new beginning.......

50 Shades of Grey

One of the best books i have read in a long time. Really sexy with alot of suspense. A genuine page turner. Cant wait to read the next two.

The most addictive

book I've ever read. I couldn't take my eyes off and was sad when I arrived on the last page.

The story intrique you, but is it not what they all say when wanting to read a "dirty book". Bit to much for the average novel lover.

Completely Satisfied

Kept up to date and delivered before expected.

WOW!!!!!

Beslis die moeite werd om te lees! Die boek doen baie vir 'n vrou se selfbeeld en leer jou om te gee en neem. Terselfde tyd maak dit jou nuuskierig oor jou eie seksualiteit en behoeftes. Kon dit nie neersit nie.vi

shades of grey, shades of darker, shades of freed

what a awesome lot of books. so many critics have been negative about these three books, but i think they should read them again. Great story line, one feels so sorry for Christiaan, and poor anastasia is a real clutz. I found these books very entertaining, humouris and sad so many emotions. GREAT BOOKS EL JAMES!!!!!

Kalahari and Book review

Love buying through Kalahari as they are so fast and efficient! Never had troubles! Received book in great condition and loving it!

Fiftl Shades of grey

I really was not that interested in reading this book. Decided to give it a chance and started on Saturday night. i just could not put the book down. By thursday i have completed all three books and have nerver enjoyed a read so much. Yes there is a lot of Repition but the story line itself is absolutely great. A big problem is that too much emphasis is given to the sex scenes and the story line falls away. the fact that Christian was given the raw end of the deal and only afer ana meets him does he realise that he also actually deserves to be loved is absolutely amazing. Read all three books before making up your mind and look pas t the sex.

Absolutely loved it!

I bought the book because of all the publicity, and was absolutely addicted from the first page. Had a bit of a wobbly when the kinky bits came up for the first time (I am rather conservative :)), but got past that quickly, because I was so enthralled by the love story!! The only suggestion I can make is when you buy this book, buy the rest of the trilogy!! I had to wait very impatiently for 24 hours for Kalahari to deliver my next installment :)

Hate to love and love to hate

When I started reading 50 shades of Grey I was really shocked and disgusted with the book, the story line was flimsy the characters were shallow and the booked seemed to get worse page by page.... you either love it or hate it and trust me I hated it! I saw Chrisitian Grey as such a bad person and thought to myself I honnestly do not have time to read this book.... BUT THEN I decided to finnish the book and start with 50 Shades Darker, WOW what an improvement the writing improved the characters gained more depht and Christian Grey whom I wept for as a fellow human being captured me so that I was suddenly rooting for him during his struggles of being a good man doing bad things... imagine my surprize to see he has a conscience and shows remorse, and that he actually does have a heart, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was by then completely enthralled in Ana & Christians story I don't want to spoil the books for any one but can say I was pleasantly surprized by 50 shades Freed... Now this was the book we were all waiting for a lovestory full of loss, excitement, danger, pleasure and anger ... I know 50 Shades of Grey has been receiving a lot of negative criticism but I would ask people to read the complete series before writing a review, in the end it was a warm heartfellt story that shows us we should never judge people, the most bautiful Mr.Grey was scarrend immensely and you would think he was the strong rock but surprizingly young Ana ended up being just that... the way the characters work through their grief and finally show how important communication with ones loved ones are i priceless and that the simplest form of sex has a direct line to true love... all the other trimmings are so unnecessary and can deceive from how love should acttully be... in the end love and life prevailed and they both received the most precious gift of all .. a new start!

Disaster

I am absolutely shocked! This is not what I expected, I would not recomend this book to any well brought-up person. It's vulgar and in poor taste. The caracters have no structure or depth. The author's attempt to shock and discust is well met. I am ashamed to admit that I have read the book.

Addictive

I started reading this series last week and I'm done. I am totally n love with Christian grey and I feel a void in myself now that I'm done! A brilliant addictive read which I'd recommend to anyone!

Fifty Shades of Grey

I loved this book from start to finish there were many sweet moments. I fell in love with their love story in the first book and by the 3rd book I was obsessed. I have read these books 5 times already. The e-mails between the 2 of them is something I look at all the time. Whenever I need to put a smile on my face this book is the first thing I pick up. Everyone is looking for their Christian Grey.

Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy

I have just finished all three books and have to say the following: 1) I did not expect to be so captivated by the story line 2) Yes, the writing could have been a lot better but it does not spoil the books nor the plot 3) In my opinion there is NO WAY you can compare this series to the Twilight Series 4) If you are able to look past the obvious BDSM you will find a intriguing love story, with irony, humour, suspense and empathy. I’m gladly adding it to my personal library.

Twilight on Steroids

In all honesty, this is Twilight just with BDSM in it. Ana= Bella; Christian= Edward. This book is so poorly written its not a joke (the author used to be a TV series writer- thats unbelievable).If ppl think Bella in Twilight is a weak character, Ana is 10 times worse. Christian is 27 and a mega-millionare trying to save the world from hunger (how he got to be this rich is beyond me).If BDSM as a subject matter is not for you, dont read. That said, the book keeps you glued to it more out of curiosity (for me, why Christian is the way he is, what his background is etc) becasue you know there is something Christian is keeping a secret- and since Im a sucker for getting down to the bottom of secrets (and once I do start reading a book series, I just have to finish it no matter how bad), I'll read the entire trilogy. Hopefully I will develop a love for these characters and the writing will improve.

Captivating

The story and characters were captivating, I found myself unable to put the book down. BEST book I have read in a while. If you looking for a gift for a women (over the age of 18) in your life, this will be an excellent choice. Recommendation is to purchase all three books in the series, once you start you will find it hard to put down.
