Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James

The amount of notes I have for chapter one are numerous.


The first chapter is terrible.


Ana acts like an ass in an interview with Christian Grey. She goes to interview him to help put her roommate who is sick with the flu. She doesn't even explain to him this til the interview is almost over. She acts like a jerk and decides he has to be control freak. She also smirks. 


The writing is a mess due to the fact that sometimes James writes Ana as knowing something (ie the Grey building) that she couldn't know without seeing it first. James is not careful in the writing tenses she is using at any given time which is what is making me confused. 


Also, random words are bolded here and there and it's throwing off my reading.
