Trying to work out who this book is aimed at,
This review is from: Fifty Shades of Grey (Paperback)
The theme of a lot of the positive reviews is "I don't read books much, but I'd heard everyone talking about 50 Shades, so I just had to read it - and it was great!" But with a few spelling/punctuation errors thrown in. And that's good, of course; anything that turns non-readers into readers is to be applauded. And I'm guessing that before long, some of them will actually read rather better books and realise how poor 50 Shades is, but that doesn't matter; it's done its job.
I'm just wondering about the subject matter, which seems to get less attention. If 50 Shades is a book for people who don't read much, is it a also a sex book for people who don't have sex much? And if they actually had some decent sex, they'd realise how daft the camp shenanigans going on in here really are.
On a side note, the whole thing about S&M is a red herring. Ana is so damned annoying, I really want to slap her as well, and there's nothing sexual about it.
