    Default One of the worst pieces of literature in history now has a companion novel...

    ...I worry about the state of humanity.

    Oh man! I don't read as much as I should, but that's one of the last things I'd like to get my head stuck into.

    Yeah, I'll be skipping that.
    Wow, after all the backlash, you'd think she would keep her head down?
    No, lets make Mr. Grey even creepier.

    I won't be reading it, but if this book makes more women realise what an abusive, manipulative, cruel and dangerous stalker Christian Grey is, I'm not entirely against it, bad writing and all.

    That's what I was thinking, it sounds like she's doing the world a favour by revealing (whether intentionally or not) that CG is not the hunky dreamboat that people seem to mistake him for.

    Yeah, I guess if it positively impacts one even one woman's life by alerting them as to what sort of men to avoid like the plague, then it wouldn't be a complete waste of space in the literary world.

    I'm sure there are some dim wits out there who will continue to think that character is the bees knees and that they're "really into BDSM and you just don't understand, you square!" - nope they're just apparently cool with intimate partner abuse.

    I've seen the bad reviews but I can't wait to read it.
    And I couldn't get it yesterday so I have a rain check. With any luck I'll have it over the week end.
    I hope it's not as bad as everyone makes out!
