::Blushing:: Just bought Fifty Shades...

I admit I'm not a book buff, however when I do read I tend to be immersed in stories about love & drama.  So when I heard about this book I was a little more than interested in buying it.

Since its aka "mommy porn" I thanked my lucky stars for the privacy of Amazon.  I will quietly chatter about it to my girlfriends though. I picked up the first book today...its coming in the beginning of may.

I also heard through the blogosphere that Universal picked it up.

Has anyone read this here?  WDYT?

Re: ::Blushing:: Just bought Fifty Shades...

  • lol. I am almost finished with the series and now my book club is reading it too. It is so poorly written and unbelievable, yet I can't seem to put it down :)

    That's because it is fan fiction. The writer wrote this after Bella and Edward from Twilight.
  • I've read the trilogy. I agree with PP that they're terribly written, but the sex scenes were hot-hot-hot. I was halfway through the first book (somehow my B&N had them before they were supposed to be released) when I heard that they were Twilight fanfic, so I was ticked off at myself for spending money on it, but by then I was too engrossed. Twilight makes me rage-y.

  • It's crap but it's fun-to-read crap.  A good screenwriter should be able to clean up the sloppiness and turn it into something watchable.

    Especially watchable if Ian plays Christian/Edward

    Haha.  I know I'm going to be in the minority here but Ian Somerhalder doesn't do it for me.

  • I just downloaded the first book on the kindle!
  • I just finished 50 Shades of Crap last night. I wasn't going to read it but curiosity got the best of me. The writing is terrible and the sex scenes were just as bad. 

    It's not like I even have a problem with erotica novels with BDSM (I loved The Sleeping Beauty books), it was just the writing. Plus I found Ana to be SO annoying but I felt the same way about Bella so it makes sense. 

    If anybody is interested in the comparison of 50 Shades vs Master of the Universe (the fanfic), I found this article:  http://dearauthor.com/features/industry-news/master-of-the-universe-versus-fifty-shades-by-e-l-james-comparison/

  • I read the series and it sucked. I was so annoyed with how often the phrase "Laters, baby" was used.

    If you want a similar, but better written book, I recommend Bared to You by Sylvia Day.

  • I started book 2 yesterday.

  • I just started the first book yesterday and I stayed up til 1:30 in the morning reading it.  I agree that it's awful writing, but for some reason I'm hooked.  I can't put it down.  I can't imagine what kind of movie this is going to be.  It would have to be rated X.
    Married 6/10/09 in Bermuda.
  • A rated X movie starring Ian Somerhalder??  YES, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Yea Ian's cute.

    ....but nothing like the hottie in my siggy (alexander skarsgard).  He's done nude movies in the past.

  • I couldn't put this book down either!!! I have no idea how they are going to make this movie with anything less than a R rating...even a R rating seems impossible!

    They'll probably ruin it like they did Exit to Eden.

    I still can't believe that they want to turn fanfic into a movie.

    Confession.

    I have only glanced at your sig pic for the past god knows how long you have had it and assumed it was you and your DH. 

    *blush*

  • The fascination and hype surrounding this thing is nothing short of fuckingbaffling. I love a good dash of kink, but this isn't even good.

    And as far as the movie rights, it doesn't have a plot! More than that, how can it even be released by anyone other than Vivid, Hustler, or a um... studio... along those lines?
