The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has been a significant hit in both stores and movie theatres. Many have likened the trilogy to the Twilight trilogy and have done rightfully so. This is because both book series have been successfully globally with each set selling millions of copies worldwide and garnering millions of dollars in movie ticket sales from their movie adaptations. But what has been magnetizing millions of readers to the fifty shades of grey series? Is it the characters or the emotions that the characters display? The author of the trilogy, E.L James, carefully wove several themes into her series of books that gave them the global appeal they have enjoyed thus far.
The first and most obvious reason that made the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, very popular with both old and young readers alike is the sex scenes that the books portray. The sex scenes depicted in the books which can be described as ‘Fifty shades darker,’ are some of the most vivid and precisely described sex scenes anyone is going to find in a book. The scenes also introduce the readers into the world of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Dominance, and Submission) as a way of enjoying tantalizing sex. Such views have been prevalent especially for older couples who have lost the fun they had in sex. The book series inspire such a couple to dive into new sexual fantasies and experiments that might revive their sexual lives.
Love and romance is the other aspect which continues to draw millions of readers to the book series, which includes Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Free and the free audiobook download Fifty Shades Darker. The love and romance that the book portrays is probably the reason that draws readers the most. First of all, the book plays out the kind of fantasy that every woman wants for themselves. That a knight in shining armor will come riding into their lives on a magnificent horse and rescue them from the boring life that they have been living. The book portrays this knight as Christian, an astonishingly handsome young man with the body of a Greek God. Christian tops this fantasy to women as also being an immensely rich entrepreneur. This sort of fantasy can only make women want more of the book series.
Last but not least, the trilogy explores a side of love that many people want for themselves but do not get to study it. The fact that love can heal wounds that psychologists can’t cure. In the book series, the romance between Ana and Christian finally heals the wounds that Christian had during the first four years of his life. The Fifty shades of grey trilogy generally teaches people on how to embrace different aspects of love and romance that albeit being a fantasy in the books, are correct in real life. Such elements of love are what have drawn millions of readers to the books.
