Customer Review

on 16 August 2012
After all the hype i decided to pick up a copy of 50 shades. Unfortunately after reading two thirds i was struggling to finish it and in the end i just did'nt bother. And i know i'm not alone here. This book is a case of very very clever marketing and i must admit it worked for the author as no doubt she has more than made her money on it. Yes initially it is exciting and explicit and that's what has drawn (mainly women) us to buy the book. But as i read on and on and on and on it just became repetative and the plot was poor.Two people obsessing over each other.......it's already been done!!....remember Twilight? Those books were really good and well written and it was the whole anticipation of 'will they' won't they and when' that had us 'hooked' and wanting to rush out and buy the whole series because as unreal as that story was, it was a good story.. As for Christian and Ana, I found myself getting bored, annoyed and frustrated at the 2 characters. A writer can throw all the sex and S&M etc... into their book all they want (and there ain't nothin' wrong with that!!) but at the end of the day, if the story is bad and lacks origanality the reader is just simply going to lose interest.So i'm afraid it's a big thumbs down for me and i won't be getting the next 2 in the series.
