Most of the members of this book club are married women and they reveal that this erotic novel has spiced up their lives. Angela Blum said, "It helped my marriage, because it gave me a little bit more confidence to play around."

However, not all readers were content with the story of young, naive college student Anastasia Steele seduced by the dashing entrepreneur Christian Grey.

"The way that he treated her; every time she'd end up crying in her room upset about something. Why would you go back to a guy who is treating you that way? Why would you let him do those kinds of things to you?," asked Susan Hmel.

Book club member Angela Sharma countered, "I mean, I could identify with Anastasia, because I know when I was younger I was a door mat...it's taken me 20 years to be like, 'No, wait a minute. That's not okay.'"

Book club members reveal that never in their ten years of meeting have they had a discussion so heated and lively as the one they had about this novel.
