"Fifty Shades of Grey" ? It's a pain in the neck is what it is. Everyone seems to be reading it and obsessing about it. It's the book of the moment because it is "so erotic" and "so explicit".
However, as far as I can tell, it is a case of emperor's new clothes. Anyone I know who has read it has been disappointed by it. They all say that it is badly written and the eroticism is extremely dull and amateurishly presented (gaining an "is that it" response from many people I know). The book seems to have appeared, somehow, with this reputation of being "the raunchiest book evar" and that momentum has carried it through to massive sales. I guess it might be amazing to people with too few brain cells, no imagination or to those who have never read a book before. To everyone else, it seems like it is a pile of shit. Apparently the "plot" of your average porn movie has more going for it.
I guess I'm judging a book by its cover because I haven't read it but I've heard enough about it that I have no real desire to either.
Wikipedia wrote: Origin as fan fiction
Fifty Shades of Grey has attracted criticism due to its origin as a fan fiction based on the Twilight novels, with some readers predicting copyright issues due to this connection. Amanda Hayward of The Writer's Coffee Shop responded to these claims by stating that Fifty Shades of Grey "bore very little resemblance to Twilight" and that "Twilight and Fifty Shades trilogy are worlds apart". In April 2012, E. L. James was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World", with Richard Lawson of The Atlantic Wire criticising her inclusion due to the trilogy's fan fiction beginnings.
