I'm reading Fifty Shades of Grey. There's one passage that I don't understand:
I close my eyes and take a deep, purifying breath, trying to recover what’s left of my equilibrium. No man has ever affected me the way Christian Grey has, and I cannot fathom why. Is it his looks? His civility? Wealth? Power? I don’t understand my irrational reaction.
On one hand, this seems like a stupid question. Anastasia spends the next paragraph talking about how handsome he is. On the other hand, Fifty Shades of Grey seems to be popular, and presumably the language has some role in its popularity.
Why does Anastasia describe her reaction as "irrational"? Why can't she understand it?
