OK. You have a point. Christian Grey is sick and definitely many women don't like to be treated like Ana.The only thing I can't understand is how people judge Ana - saying that she has no self-respect, she is a doormat, blah blah. What if she gains pleasure out of this? What if she likes being treated this way. What if she never considers herself suffering because she enjoys being with Christian Grey?I guess that makes her even a bigger shame? But I think she would only be a shame if she didn't pursue what she likes because she didn't want to be called a shame and a doormat.
I just finished the first book of the 'Fifty Shades of Gray' trilogy (barely) and I can't say I'll be picking up the second or third. Ever.I saw all the hype on tv about it, searched it up on Amazon, and ignored the hundreds of 'one star reviews.' I should have listened.I've never hated a book before, just majorly disliked, but this? This one did it.I felt like I was trapped in a hole that just kept getting deeper and impossible to climb.I reaiized by the third chapter that things weren't going to get better.The heroine made me want to weep in denial that I was reading about her 'Inner Goddess' and the hero made me want to call the Secret Service for stalking and just being creepy.Creeping isn't romantic.The vocabulary and grammar were gut wrenching, and the unrealistic plot (sexy billionaire, not millionaire, but billionaire with a BDSM fetish and 21 year old virgin whose never masturbated, but orgasms at the drop of a hat) was embarrassing to read about.This was apparently considered 'shocking erotica' by the Today Show...I've read more shocking erotica with a Captain Underpants Flip-O-Rama comic.Basically, the only thing I can think of is WHY? Why did this lady write this book? What possessed her to turn a Twilight fanfiction into a published novel?Author, lady, whatever your name is...don't quit your day job.
I agree with Faaye and won't be reading book 2 and 3. The only reason I finished the book was because of my goal to complete any book I start this year.Just hoping that they don't make this book into a movie.
Ok what does H an h mean???I read them. I haven't finished the 3rd book though. It just got tedious after awhile. There were some aspects i liked though but things became too predictable and then i started to get annoyed by Ana. The male lead is sick....i think that's what the author was going for. plus he was getting help for his condition, he himself knew he was sick. At least he kept his sick ideals to subs who were ok with it and he doesn't remain that way. He starts to change.
So, my question is why this book can make some people(this is the first time for me) REALLY hate it, meanwhile the other half REALLY LOVE it...?it's kind of an issue for me..
I can't really compare this book to Twilight books... I do realize it started out as fanfic, but seriously, even though I'm not a fan of Meyer's books, she knows how to write, while the Fifty Shades trilogy is just horrible, horrible writing. I'm horrified by the popularity of such bad writing, and especially of the topic... abusive relationship, which is in short the theme of these books. @TallMocha - Is that Novak on your avatar?
