“FIFTY SHADES OF GREY”
Whats your suggestion?
Should i start this series?
That’s not a book. That’s porn.
Yes really. It’s word porn.
Not unless you want to read multiple books about 2 pathetic whiny people having kinky sex.
Salute to that person ??
I am gonna hit him on the *****
I burned the one brought in my house. More violence against women.
I don’t know why people like these stuff
@Safi What? You didn’t know there are SICK people out there?
Its junk writing
I got peer pressured into reading it a few years ago. All I have to say is that I still want my time and money back!! Awful book, horrendous writing, and enormous waste of time. Honestly, they should use this as a torture device to get info out of spies/traitors/etc!
I thought it was ok. No brainer reading.
No they get more annoying as it continues
I’m not going to say I liked them, but I thought they were marginally better as the books went on, only because the second and third books at least had a plot (albeit weak). Lol
No. It’s abuse
Honestly? It depends on you. It is not great literature (REALLY not), but it is a highly entertaining, mostly easy read.
No don’t bother. Started the first book and never finished it.
Really depends on what experience your looking for in a read…
@Marcia yes of course
Its awful, not just the story itself but the writing is awful as well.
I liked it for the background story and psychological aspect of it, it’s how I read things, I didn’t like one character, but then she was young, naive and all about herself
It depends on your taste but personally I would give it a miss! All my friends were reading it so I gave it a try and couldn’t make it past the second chapter. The writing is terrible and no real storyline other than a guy who likes to tie women up and slap them.
The funny thing is, the writer (I can’t call her an author sorry) made an absolute fortune from the series and films…
Utter crap. If you’re that desperate read a phone book. It is more interesting.
My son loved Poisonwood Bible- I finally read it- one of my favorites!
Guy’s a creep with issue, falls for girl with issues, girl rescued guy…kinky sex stuff…the end
Honestly make your own mind up. I personally liked the series and those that hate are entitled to do that. Just remember at the end of the day it’s just a fiction book and the main character is of age and understanding about what is happening to her
I think it’s more of a book/series for people who dont enjoy actually reading. I couldn’t get through the first few pages of it because of how it was written. I think all the hype is just because of the sex scenes, and alot of people are living vicariously through that book loll. Dont bother, you’ll truly get nothing out of it
I’m not trying be rude or tell you what to think. Please don’t judge the readers, just the book. I did enjoy reading the books and I’m a book nerd/hoarder. I love really great books like The Godfather and Gone With the Wind. But I can still enjoy the mindless stuff like Twilight and 50 shades. Just please don’t judge people for what they read. 🙂
@Briana, I’m sorry, but whose judging? I didnt judge anyone actually. It’s my opinion on the book and the series……if you do not agree, there is no reason to get offended or feel judged. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and it’s not ur place to tell me how to feel about it 🙂
? ok sorry like I said wasn’t trying to be rude. I Shouldn’t have even commented. ?
I liked it (apparently im the only one haha) i did not pick it up expecting the nxt great American novel i took it for what it was a erotic romance i read all 3 books and watched all 3 movies enjoyed the books more than the movies
I was the same way
Waste of time.
Although they sell, the books are a waste of time.
I read all of them! They were good!
I loved the book. I read all three in five days.
I suggest you skip it… So many great books out there waiting to be read
Worst books EVER!!!!!
No ! I read all 3 in two days. I got SO sick of the sex scenes, i skipped them.
I read it out of boredom and curiosity. I kept going because I was hoping there would be more because of the hype. I was left empty. I just can’t recommend it to anyone. That was 4 days wasted on the series lol
Don’t waste your time.
I kept starting and quitting part of the way through. I wouldn’t bother
Only if you die first.
If you value your brain cells dont
If you are into reading for the love of reading, DON’T READ THEM.
I didn’t read it. I’m not into porn. (knew this from what the reviews were saying)
Really it’s the quality of Shades of Grey that bothered me. It’s okay to read a kinky sex book, but the quality ????? If you can, go to Amazon and read some of the reviews. Some of the people have counted how many times some phrases are repeated- and that was pretty funny 🙂
I had a 80 something lady who was a customer she got copies for her granddaughter. We cringed
With so many skilled and remarkable writers in the world and not enough time to read every great book, why read something as unimaginative and unremarkable as this?
No. They are badly written, the plot is weak, the characters are even weaker. I have nothing against the topic itself, just the writing. To show you how much I hate them, I never, ever give books away or loan them out to people as I know I will never get them back. Yet, I was very happy to let these ones go and, I didn’t care that they never came back to me….
No it’s an insult to the intelligence
Stick to comic books.
Please just let’s not get into this debate again! It so polarises people and the nasties come out in droves!!!
If you want to do something stupid.
Pillars of the earth
Personally, with so many good books out there, why waste good reading time on badly written books.
Nah. There are too many other options
You tell me the best book you have ever read!!!!
Don’t waste your time unless you like s&m. It is glorified abuse which in real life who would want
As a BDSM practitioner. No. This is not BDSM. This is outright abuse. BDSM is all about consent, respect, and safe practices. 50 Shades of abuse is nothing like BDSM
Boring and so unrealistic. Predictable to the point of mind numbing. Read only if you need a way to fall asleep or you are trying to punish yourself.
You’ll destroy brain cells reading this tripe.
I lasted 25 pages. I thought it was poorly written imo.
YEAH!!! It’s great even better if your into dirty romance
When you read a long book, make sure it’s a good one. Try Dickens, George Eliot, Dostoevsky.
I’ve read all 3 books and loved them I read these kind of book’s, but I read other kinds as well. These book’s will give you a peek into what BDSM is about and yes it’s considered soft porn and if you’ve seen the movies they tried to stay close to the book just like the Harry Potter series, but I preferred the books over the movies for 50 shades to have been poorly written it sure made the author a helluva lot of money and for it to be on the movie screen I’d say E L James did a fantastic job.
These books are NOT a representation of BDSM. These books are a How-NOT-To-Treat a person EVER.. It’s a dangerous display of unchecked abuse and control.
This book is abusive garbage. If you want a good book there are plenty others that don’t deal with so many, unchecked, romanticised abusive behaviours.
Its an OK story I guess, but not very well writen
It’s a good story. I liked learning the backgrounds of the characters; however, it is badly written, if you can get that. Good story, poorly written. If you like this type of story/series, I would suggest The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day. Nice character development and better writing.
I am new to english novels and can’t understand difficult english.
Before buying a book first read few pages in e book?
I don’t know why i am telling it.
I thought it was awful. Couldn’t bring myself to continue wasting time and energy reading it. I generally enjoy most books I read
Why? Spend your time reading something of substance.
No, no, no and no!
I wasn’t a fan but I know lots that were x
No. I found it boring. Couldn’t see what all the Hope was about.
It is really bad ? Someone has given you a terrible recommendation.
Definitely eyebrow raising nonetheless boring characters
50 Shades! It’s boring
don’t read 50 shades of Grey. there is better literature out there
Depends , you must find abuse, patterns of behavior, therapy, violence, plane crashes, opulence, adoption, stalking, death threats, emotional age vs business savvy, success, happiness in the end.
The book is much different than the movie and then there are the books from Christian grey’s point of view.
Don’t bother, a huge waste of time.
Apparently first draft if this was a Twilight fan-fic. Twilight was ok but a fan fic of it had no appeal.
Yeah try it …there is nothing to lose …
It’s not for me but you might enjoy it – give it a try if you want x
I tried reading it but couldn’t get myself to finish even half the book and never picked it up again.
