1.0 out of 5 stars Just because Its sold lots of copies - doesn't mean it's good!, 27 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Fifty Shades of Grey (Paperback)
Truly awful! Avoid purely for the gratuitous use of the word 'panties' a word reserved for dirty old men. Erotica is the word used to describe this book - erotic it is not - its basically written in the style of porn mag literature (an oxymoron in itself). The sex in Birdsong by Sebastian Faulkes is erotic and beautiful. Fifty shades is not. The underlying idea of a young women who turns out to be a virgin - quel surprise!, meeting a charismatic, rich, beautiful man who wants to hurt and humiliate her to achieve sexual satisfaction is another example of violence against women moving insidiously into the mainstream. What's amazing to me is that the book is written by a woman, the literature is poor, it is purely the sex that's selling it. Save your money and buy something worth reading!

I'd sooner read Lady Chatterley if I wanted some literacy jollies. That book is sexy, this sounds like teen tosh.

I hate the word 'panties' - thanks for the warning, and for that reason alone I will steer well clear! Cheers for your review!
