Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Famously, the beginning of the first book is about Ana going to interview Christian for the college newspaper. For the rest of the series, Christian is careful to avoid the press.


Added DiffLines:

* GoldDigger: Anastasia is worried that being with Christian will make people suspect that her main love is Christian's cash. Adding credibility to this is the fact that before she moves in with Christian, Ana lived with Kate, whose parents paid their rent for them, and once she's moved to Christian's place, she's not in a hurry to return the dress she borrowed from Kate.


Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: Ana's supposed to be knowledgeable enough about English literature to major in it, but she never shows any deeper knowledge about the books she's read.


Added DiffLines:

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: We pretty much never see Christian actually being at his office managing his many businesses. The few times we do see him working, he's off doing something that's unrelated to his work, and giving orders to a subordinate over his phone.


Added DiffLines:

* RiddleForTheAges: Why did the press-averse Christian Grey agree to be interviewed for a college newspaper?

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Anastasia keeps mentioning that her subconscious is yelling at her, reminding her of something, or something else in that vein. By definition, it's impossible to feel what's going on in your subconscious.

** At one point, Ana narrates that she wordlessly whispers the words "I havenít been out on my own since I got married" to her bodyguard. However, it's logically impossible to whisper words wordlessly.

* UnreliableNarrator: The most prominent example is when, in first person present tense, Ana gives a detailed explanation of her surroundings and right afterwards claims that she doesn't get a chance to see what her surroundings look like.
* WhiteMansBurden: Darfur, of all things, is dragged into the book to demonstrate just how rich and generous Christian Grey is.

* TooDumbToLive: While on a night flight in a helicopter, Ana asks Grey how anyone can see well enough to travel at night. Apparently she is unaware of the illuminated flight panel in front of her, the lights on the helicopter and the millions of cars below her that are driving with headlights.
