    How many have read this book?:smile:

    I read all three in about a week as well, after I got past the shockingly graphic nature of it! I was not expecting an overly amazing story it was just so different from what I would normally read!

    I don't think I was ever more annoyed with a book. (I want to punch her inner goddess down...there)

    But I suppose I can't say anything because I did read all 3.

    Atleast it kept me entertained.

    Hummm Loved those novels! They remind me of someone...;)
  • No- I have a teen son at home. If he saw me reading that or got hold of the book...
    Not that I don't want to read them though! Just gonna have to be when he's not around.

    Absolutely the worst book. I wanted to see what the hype was, and I am struggling to finish it. It's all been said here - horribly pathetic writing, poor character development, very little plot, repetivitive phrasing, and did I mention BORING? Even the sex scenes were boring and so predictable. Christian is an overrated abuser and has no depth. I would've kicked his *kitten* three ways from Sunday for beating me for "rolling my eyes". I want to smack the **** out of stupid Ana. Get some self respect! I will not read the other 2. Nor will I see the movies - how the hell can they make movies out of these books? Without overt sex scenes, there's no story and no characters to like. They better get a hell of a good screenwriter to fix this train wreck.

    The only thing I regret is that I didn't take a weekend to write them myself and make millions. Then sell the rights to Vivid Video so they could make a bad porn and i could make even more money. 50 Shades of Millions........
  • I read the first one and couldn't get past that because I wanted to punch her inner goddess. The sex scenes were mediocre and did nothing to get me hot and bothered. Definitely never reading the rest.
  • gotta say my sister wanted to read them, and kept shoving random quotes there, i loved them and thought they were pretty good books but by the end of the third book i had had enough and was ready for them to end but all in all i love them <3
  • First 5 chapters are boring and the main character is soooo whiney.

    The "steamy" parts are not realistic and I thought they were silly.

    Best chapter of all was the last chapter of book 3.

    He never goes out of the house? It's in ever store that sells books. I'm betting he wouldn't bother picking up something Mom was reading, anyway.
  • I'm in the middle of reading the Trilogy now. Almost done book 2....love it

    I think I knew too much about it so it ruined it for me. I got 100+ pages in to the first one and couldn't go any further. I didn't think it was written all that well. After she used the "mouth pressed into a hard line” phrase for about the 14th time I lost it.
  • Loved the books. If you loved that People Mag is saying the next best book coming out is Bared to You by Sylvia Day, The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice and Lady Chatterly's Lover.
  • I hope this replies to the correct person... I AGREE!!! ROFL

    I read all 3 of them in about a week and got everybody around the office reading them. The best thing to happen to my sex life in a long, long time.

    ^^^THIS^^^

    Seriously. I know, I know, it's trashy, erotic fiction. But Hello Batman! Worth it, and my husband thinks so too!! :love: :smokin:
