My name is Tatjana, I’m 30 years old and from Germany.
How did you come to read Fifty Shades of Grey?
A friend told me about the series and I also heard other people speaking about it, mentioning good things as well as not so good things. I was curious what this fuss was all about and I simply gave it a try.
Did you read an actual book or an ebook?
It happened that I listened to the (German) audio books first, which are very well done, by the way. After that I started to read the ebooks in English.
Which is your favorite book in the series?
My favorite book of the Fifty Shades of Grey series is the first one, I think. Getting to know Christian Grey is quite interesting, I love that character.
What is your favorite scene in the series?
When Ana throws the drink at Elena! Ana shows courage from time to time, and in this particular scene I loved her for that.
How many times have you read the series?
I’ve read the series about two times, but I guess I reread parts of it hundreds of times by now because of the illustrations I do which are based on Fifty Shades of Grey.
Outside of Fifty Shades of Grey, what is your favorite book, series or author?
I love the works of Tolkien very much, but I also like German authors like Wolfgang Hohlbein and his series “Chronicles of the Immortals” for example or the “Felidae” novels by Akif Princçi. “Needful Things” by Stephen King is also an all-time-favorite of mine.
If you were to meet E L James today, what 2 questions would you ask her?
I probably would ask her
1) if she ever has thought about illustrating Fifty Shades of Grey
2) which topics she would talk about with Christian Grey if she could spend some time with him.
Have you had any unique experiences because of your love of Fifty Shades of Grey?
Yes, I’ve met a lot of new people because of my drawings and all the support within the community is simply amazing! From the very beginning reading the books I’ve had quite a clear image of the characters, because E.L. James described them so very well. So I drew them like what they looked like for me and I found that some people completely agree with that!
Currently one of my artworks is still featured on E.L. James’ website and I have something new in the making as well.
What scene are you most looking forward to in Fifty Shades of Grey The Movie?
I can’t say if it’s a particular scene I’m looking forward to seeing in the movie, but I’m quite curious about nearly every scene with Jamie Dornan. Christian Grey is a very physical character and I really don’t know what Mr. Dornan is like in that role, I wasn’t even able to imagine him as Christian first – but there is something about him. Just like there’s something about elevators, if you know what I mean? 😉
