This book is a disaster. Gosh. I don't dislike the aim of the writer about it being an erotica or something. but come on. its not erotic, really. It doesn't turn on anybody. when I was reading the part Grey telling her that he is very attached to his p****, i was like, "duh? aren't they all?"And another thing that pisses me off, is when somebody learns that I didn't like the book, they go like, "Oh, honey don't you read erotic books?" and ask me if it was too erotic for me. Oh, hell no! I've read a lot of them and this book is the worst. ugh
Well, I need help! I am so very fed up of the Fifty Shades of .... whatever the heck you like. As if the books aren't bad enough, I have been tasked with putting together a Christmas Lunch for my company's one department (mine unfortunately!!). It's theme? You've got it!!!Fifty Shades of ...[/size][/color] Summer! Oh hell! dammit and all those other swear words which come to mind! Really I can't do this! So, help is needed PLEASE!Anybody have any pictures of Christmas trees with handcuffs, whips or chains that I can use on the invitation? Stop laughing!!! I'm (almost) serious!!!Help, or shoot me... whichever is easier...

Ha, this was the response I got from all my friends when they asked if I'd read it yet. Everyone wanted to talk to me about this stupid book and I kept saying I'm not reading that garbage. So naturally they all assumed I wouldn't read an erotic or bdsm book. There are soooooo many better erotic books out there and I can't believe so many people got caught up in the hype of this book. Even older women who've never even read a romance novel were reading this crap (like my aunts *cough cough*). Trends belong in fashion, not in what we read.
I don't know-- maybe those who liked this book haven't had a feel of other erotica books that made them conclude that this trilogy is the best there is. I enjoyed the exchange of emails. That was probably the part that brought me to stifle some of my giggles.One Erotica book that I quite enjoyed is Accidentally on Purpose :) It wasn't too much and the heroine wasn't all too melodramatic :)
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'm so sorry I didn't find this thread sooner. I so need to vent
