This review is from: Fifty Shades of Grey (Paperback)
You know I never like to judge a book before reading so that's what I did. Now I wish I hadnt. What a load of tosh!!
Seriously, this is twilight without vampires with non stop sex. That's it. Oh and let's throw in some (extremely tame) bdsm for good measure to make bored housewives think they are risqué for having a pair of handcuffs. Pur-lease.
Ana is a remarkable virgin who apparently has never masterbated yet can orgasm at the drop of a hat or spoken word, not to mention her convenient non-existent gag reflex, she can perform like a porn star on her first try. Christian is perfect looking and like the energiser bunny. He just never gets tired! He isn't even put off by her monthly cycle. Gross.
She falls in love in five mins, Christian of course has to be damaged to be into kinky stuff, which really ticked me off. Both characters call him not 'normal' for his tastes. Excuse me, judgmental much. It's like the author just skimmed the Internet and gleaned what she could of the lifestyle. It's pathetic.
This is not romantic, a turn on or well written. I seriously cannot believe all the hype over it. I shall be skipping reading the rest of the trilogy. Save your money. If you must read, borrow it.
