1.0 out of 5 stars Oh My! What a pile of discarded panties 24 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Oh My, I mean really, Oh my, oh my, oh my......No readers, I have not just been whipped (pardon the pun) into a bosom heaving wreck by the size of my partner's "impressive length". I have in fact, just dragged myself through to the final page of this ludicrous nonsense and found myself almost speechless. Almost...

The main character, Christian Grey, is quite obviously deranged. This does not however, deter Ana, who for some inexplicable reason, has spent so long with her head in a book that she has never looked in a mirror and noticed that she is a "total babe". A "total babe" who also happens to be a 21 year old virgin. No, Ana, in the space of 3 weeks, falls so crazily in love with "Mr Grey" that she manages to bypass the whole deranged thing and instead concentrates all her efforts on a) going from virgin to porn star faster than Hussain Bolt off the blocks and b) deciding whether to let him hit her with stuff. As you do.

As for Mr Grey, obviously, readers can't be allowed to see him as simply a deranged, manipulative psycho so let's give him smouldering good looks, a few zillion quid to throw around and hey, and this is the clincher, the ability to love art and music (y'know, like Nazi's do in the war films). (Note - the bit where he plays the "haunting" piano piece, semi naked, with his eyes closed actually made me laugh so much that I almost wet myself - in a non-orgasmic way. Check it out....enjoy! ). As if that wasn't enough he also has a personal and financial interest in saving the world from famine. Just that old world peace and cancer to sort out and then hey, job's a good `un. I mean really, how did the world ever shamble along without him? So what made this beautiful, charismatic and talented man so brutal? Could it be a traumatic childhood perhaps?

2.0 out of 5 stars *rolls eyes* 6 July 2012
Verified Purchase
"So" he asks, looking at me with his grey eyes "what did you think of the book?"
I bite my lower lip, looking at his beautiful face.
"well?" he asks. I roll my eyes and blush and have an earth shatttering orgasm as I see his trousers hanging in.... That way. My inner goddess faceplants.
"oh my" I say.
We bonk for a few minutes.
He points his long finger at me. "you haven't answered me yet."
Holy crap I mutter.
He spanks me, I have an orgasm which makes me shatter into a thousand pieces then burst into tears.
Him and his twitchy palms. Ooh and his white linen shirt.
He tweaks my nipple. I orgasm again. From virgin to sex kitten in less time then it takes most people to clean the fridge. Not bad!!!
We have earth shattering sex AGAIN.
And again

Repeat until authors pen runs out.
The end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money..... 24 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read about this book a few months ago but wasn't really interested, however a few of my work colleagues have read it and raved about it, so I thought I'd give it a go.

How this book has so many 5 star reviews, I have no idea. The book is badly written, there is literally no plot and the characters are laughably 2 dimensional. Even the sex scenes, which you might think would provide a bit of excitement between pages of terrible prose, were dire. If I hadn't seen a picture of the author already, I would have thought that it was written by a 16 year old.

If it were possible to make a drinking game from a book, this would be ideal. Drink every time the words 'Oh my', 'Inner Goddess', 'Subconscious', 'Foil packet' 'Holy crap' or 'Biting my lip' are used, and you'll be very drunk very quickly..... It is incredibly repetitive - for example, parts of the 'sex contract' are reproduced in full on more than one occasion.

If you truly believe that this is 'the best book ever written', I'd be interested to see the kind of books that you've read before. I wouldn't even recommend this book if it was free.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unintentionally hilarious! 18 May 2012
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
There are hundreds of reviews here and people are clearly split into two camps: the 5 stars `loved it', and the 1 star `hated it'. I'm in the latter (forced to read this for a book group). But for all the leaden, wooden, repetitive, frequently juvenile-sounding prose, and the profoundly unerotic sex scenes, this book is so awful that it's brilliant... in an unintentional kind of way.

Read aloud in the pub over a bottle or two, this provided hours of fun as our `heroine' took one look at Christian Grey's gray eyes (yes, really) and his messy hair, and the way his trousers hang "in that way" (what way?) and literally falls flat on her face in front of him. Clearly smitten by her cute innocence, Christian of the grey eyes, sculptured lips, and spicy scent is soon whipping out his little "foil packets", his riding crops and hand-cuffs, and giving our previously-virginal Ana multiple and seemingly instantaneous orgasms, all of which are "shattering".

We particularly enjoyed the way Christian manages most of his sexual exploits either fully-dressed (just a quick unzipping and a coy fiddle with a "foil packet") or with his shirt (always white linen) still on, while Ana bit her lip, and breathed `oh my!' for the umpteenth time.

So, really, this IS as bad as people say - but for barely more than two quid it managed to provide hours of derisive laughter.

This is not an impressive book - the characters are unconvincing and the sex not actually all that erotic. I wouldn't bother to read the two follow-ons.

Enjoyable. Nice to read a story where, despite appearances, the girl is in control. Instead of him changing her, she changes him. Read more

Kept me vaguely entertained on the train and that's it. The writing is dreadful, it's repetitive beyond anything i've ever seen before and i'm seriously considering buying EL James... Read more
