I tried reading Fifty Shades of Grey
and it truly is boring. It is basically repeated over and over and over again ad nauseum that Christian Grey is the dominant and Ana Steele is the submissive, and they are trying to agree to terms of a contract between them and blah blah blah. She wants a normal relationship, he knows no other type of relationship than that between a dominant and submissive. I don't want to say too much in case someone who is reading the books doesn't want to be spoiled.
It is very poorly written. I couldn't even get through the first book (of a trilogy), and just skimmed through the last 1/3 of the book.
Kindle gave it very poor reviews, so I didn't buy it. I borrowed it from a friend.
There are a lot of people who love the trilogy, though.
