The new version of best-selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey written from title character Christian Grey’s point of view was inspired by countless requests from readers to continue with his side of the story, the book’s writer E L James says.

Titled Grey, the new version was out in bookstores today which is also Christian’s birthday.

According to the author, the characters and their voices were always with her.

Christian is a complex character and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story.

“It’s been a great pleasure to return to my happy place - writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe, and working with the fantastic publishing teams in the US and the UK,” said James.
