    I skimmed my sister's copy and I thought it sounded okay at first... but when I actually read the book, I changed my mind.

    To be honest, I didn't like it much at all. The writing was terrible; but then again, the whole novel was originally meant to be a fanfic of Twilight and I thought Stephanie Meyer wasn't so great at writing either...

    As for the plot? Well, there wasn't much of an interesting plot. It was all sex really. I found it to be really crass and I didn't like the way Christian Grey treated Ana (who I thought was annoying and rather whiny). He kind of creeped me out at times. Definitely not my cup of tea.

    So yeah, I'm not interested in reading anymore of her books...

    Interesting thread. My friend just recommended them to me 2 days ago and I was wondering whether to bother getting them. Apparently you can pick them up at Kmart at the moment for 10bucks so I might just yet.
    Although I have just started the first Songs of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) and there are a pile of them so by the time I finish that lot....could be a year away....

    I keep hearing about this book on Facebook and read the first 10 pages for free on Amazon, and am undecided if I want to pursue it any further.....

    I think the steamy plot lines is up my alley (yeah, hate admitting that..) but the writing is very dull and lacks a clever edge. I also typically try to avod reading anything that's been hyped to death. I read 80 pages in the 'help' and it just did not appeal to me; it wasn't my kind of story I'd read, so I tried, but gave up and loaned it to a co worker who never returned it.

    I just don't know about this book or even if I will read it, though how curious I am about it, I will surely eventually try to secure a copy of the 1st book and see how it goes. Kroger was even selling it the other day but I couldn't justify the 10 bucks on it atm. I would have rather ordered something new for the baby or got a steak.

    I really enjoyed it. It is far from a literary masterpiece, but I doubt you will find any erotic fiction that is! It is something fun and steamy to read that has a sweet ending.

    Dom/sub has been covered in quite a few novels, like The Beauty Trilogy and Exit to Eden....all extremely graphic and erotic.

    I read all three! I loved them. Such a fantasy land while you are reading them. I agree, the writing isnt good. The british slang w the characters who were supposedly living in Portland drove me nuts. I am so surprised how many of you didnt like them. Everyone I know can NOT put them down! The first book is really slow til about 1/2 way through and the 2nd book was my favorite.
    two , going for the cycling with Dr. Lin @ RFC in Irvine!

    I'm loving the first book but I do agree it is repetitive and I want Ana to grow a back bone and tell him where to go most of the time. Plus it doesn't make me want to leap into the sack.... which is a shame

    OMG finally! I have to say this is the first place that I have ever heard anyone with any other opinion about them and I have to say I am releived. I have read all three and really don't get what all the hype is about.

    I know the sex scenes were a little shocking, this didn't bother me, but I just think that the whole concept was way off base. It was poorly written and had so many holes in it. Really how many times can you have sex in a 3 week period!

    I just wish he had loved her a little bit more, I know he 'changed' but he didn't really, he was still overpossesive and not someone I could live with. In the end, he got his way and she was basically everything he wanted. Though she thinks she enjoys it, how does she know any different? I saw her as a bit of a batterred woman. She is bullied and belittled at every step.

    OK off my soapbox now I didn't hate it so much I couldn't read it, I suppose I just didn't get what was so captivating about it.
