Anastasia "Ana" Steele is a 21-year-old college senior attending Washington State University in Vancouver, Washington.
Her best friend is Katherine "Kate" Kavanagh, who writes for the college newspaper.
Christian later takes Ana out to eat, and he reveals that he lost his virginity at age 15 to one of his mother's friends, Elena Lincoln, and that his previous dominant/submissive relationships failed due to incompatibility.
Christian also reveals that in his first dominant/submissive relationship he was the submissive.
Ana leaves with Christian, but not before she discovers that Kate has been flirting with Christian's brother, Elliot.
Critical reception of the book, however, has tended towards the negative, with the quality of its prose generally seen as poor.

It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism (BDSM).
Originally self-published as an ebook and a print-on-demand, publishing rights were acquired by Vintage Books in March 2012.
