Well I finally gave in and read 50 shades of grey this weekend. Let me tell you I grew up with Jackie Collins and Marilyn French AND that was proper mommy porn books with an actually story line as well. Even Danielle Steel with her beyond beautiful people that is always good and wonderful could do a better story than the writer of 50 Shades.
I was 50 shades of boredom and about 50,000 shades of irritation and believe me not sexual irritation but irritation at the bad writing and the words that she used over and over and over again. “Down there” made an appereance on almost every page and then the herione biting her lip and rolling her eyes on about every second page and let’s not forget the amazing beauty of Christian Grey. Ohh vomit worthy I promise you.
And what I find worst is that this Christian Grey was basically molested by an older woman when he was a teenager and in this book there is nothing wrong with being molested. I find it completely wrong and it also made me wonder how badly our morals has been corrupted when a book like this can sell more than Harry Potter but it is full of pedophails (sp?), S&M etc.
I’ve battle the whole weekend to get through the first book of the trilogy but I don’t think I’m going to waste my time to read the other two. I can’t waste precious time like that. I’m sure you do wonder why I didn’t put the first book down if it irritated me so much. Well I was starting to think that I’m missing something and I was waiting for that something to happen because surely millions of people can’t think this book is so wonderful.
