Fifty Shades…..Too Many

Well I just wanted to know what all the fuss was about. Fastest selling paperback of all time selling 40 million copies worldwide, UK’s top 5 best selling book of all time and everyone’s talking about it. There will even be an adaptation to film.

Have you read E L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey? What did you think?

I think I might have turned fifty shades of pink reading this erotic novel. Explicitly descriptive to the extent of pornographic. I can imagine sales in sex shops going up for vaginal balls and riding crops but after a while it just became tedious and boring.

I know it is part of a trilogy, but really, do I have to read pages of S&M to get to the bottom of what happens to hero Christian Grey and whether heroine Anastasia Steele gets his love? Unfortunately, the backdrop was extremely stereotypical. Abused alpha male who seems to find solace in S&M and an innocent university graduate who falls prey to him. My review is even sounding like a tag line for a porn film.

Personally, one book would have been enough and get to the bloody point.
