    I enjoyed it. You'll find a lot of people who complain about the writing, but E L James doesn't claim to be a writer. I liked the story and it opened my eyes to a lot of stuff. My husband is VERY happy....hahaha!

    If you want a good follow-up, read Bared to You by Sylvia James. I honestly can't decide between Christian Grey and Gideon Cross. YUM!

    Oh yes!!!! Bared to you is an awesome read!! Trying to decide between Christian Grey and Gideon Cross is hard though! Although I am leaning more towards Gideon!!!

    Can I not have them both?
  • my entire office was reading the series....i read all 3 in less than a week ;)

    same here only i have read them all twice now! love love love them!

    Read them, loved the first, liked the second, hated the third. Sex was steamy, but I've seen it done better. It's literary junk food.

    Just started the first book and am loving it! Got to one part that was a little shocking "the contract"..but have since gotten over it. The story is great so far!:wink:

    Honestly.. some of the worst stuff I've ever read. And I went into it knowing the writing would be crap.. I was just in it for the sex scenes (yes I admit it)..and quite frankly - they were boring! Too often, same descriptions, and unbelievable in some cases (seriously..she has a mind-blowing orgasm EVERY SINGLE TIME?).

    Dude was more than a little crazy/psycho too - I wanted to want to love/rescue the character.. but just didn't find him attractive at all!
  • I haven't read it because it's Twilight Fanfiction that had the names changed and got published.. Plus there's no story and the way it describes certain kinks is just... way off.

    I read bits and pieces just to see what it was all about. Some of the sex scenes were hot but I agree. The writing isn't very good. It got old quick and i put it down.

    I'm reading the first one and at the moment I absolutely hate it. I can't get into it, I don't care about the characters, I don't feel like there is any story line and I think its terribly written.

    I know most people love it and can't put it down, but it doesn't do it for me.

    My thoughts exactly.
  • Oh neat, another 50 shades thread. :/

    Agreed completely. This blog has a really funny summary of each chapter.

    I liked the first book, I'm in the second, and have the third on hand. I really dont care how well the author writes with this type of novel. Get me heated up so I can go and show my husband a thing or two :blushing:

    I liked them! Seems like I was the last to read them!

    Haven't read it, I'm afraid it's been too over hyped for me and I'd just be disappointed. I may check out some of the others mentioned here though. :)

    Loved them! I read all three in about 5 days.
    I'm excited to see who they'll pick for the movie characters.
    There were quite a few annoyances re: the writing, but the story (yes, there was actually a storyline...lol) was gripping enough to hold my attention. ;)
  • Read all three. Personally didnt think they were all the great... And I sure as heck dont want either of my daughters to read these books when they get older. Some things should not be brought into the day light..
