New Fifty Shades of Grey rewrite novel breaks all UK sales records in its first week.
During the first three days more than 647 thousands of copies had been sold. The spin-off novel has already beaten 2009s Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol, which was a record holder with selling around 551,000 copies in the first five days.
Grey tells the same Fifty Shades story but from the Christian Grey’s point of view. The novel, in spite of being torn to pieces by critics, became the new US hit. More than 1.1 million copies in paperback, audio and ebook editions had been sold in the first four days.
The representative of publishers Cornerstone said in a statement:
We’ve had magnificent support from across the trade.
The excitement and enthusiasm that Grey’s publication has generated is totally irresistible and I am delighted with these early results
This adult Fifty Shades trilogy became the story of the decade as more than 125 million copies of the novels had been already sold. Besides, earlier this year a record-breaking film starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson was spawned.
Fans were amazed when EL James announced a new novel Grey on 1 June as they begged the author for more details of Mr Grey and Anastasia Steele’s love affair. So immediately after the release announcement, the new Grey novel topped book charts from pre-sale orders.
It was also stated by James’ publishers that the author is to be the participant of a live Twitter Q&A in London on 29 June.
