Books Fifty Shades of Grey

Ok, who read it? It's talked about A LOT, but the reviews on Amazon aren't all that great. Anyone read this yet?

My wife just read all three in the past week. She was addicted to it. It wasn't the perverted stuff that she was in to it, it was the romance. She couldn't put it down. People seem to either love it or hate it.

Yeah that's what I got out of the reviews... it was love or hate. There wasn't much in the middle.

In fact, it seemed that the majority of the people that were looking for the erotic stuff were the ones that hated it, which makes me think I might like it. People who read erotica were leaving reviews like "the sex scenes were vanilla" and stuff like that.

Yeah, my wife said they were graphic for her and there were so many that she just skipped over some. She's a sucker for romance so she just kind of pretended that it wasn't smut.

I've read about the lousy grammar throughout the book, which would bug me. But I'm sure I'll read it as soon as I run across it ... or finally get an ipad.

I heard that it was very poorly written and tried to tell my wife that but she said it's no worse than a Jackie Collins novel.

I just read the first couple chapters on Amazon for free, and yeah, it's not written all that great, but it didn't bug me too bad. It jumps right into it though... moves pretty fast. There isn't as much set up as there is in most books. It's like a porn just trying to get to the action LMAO
