    Default 50 Shades of Grey

    Anyone read this? I'm in the middle of it, it's so badly written yet very addictive!

    Have you read it? What do you think?

    I have ordered it and am waiting for it to arrive. I have heard nothing but good things about this book which is why I decided to buy it rather then waiting for it to come to the public library. I can not wait for it to get here. Hopefully it will live up to expectations.

    just figured out why it sounds so familiar (it was originally a fanfic story)

    It was amazing when she wrote it - but i think its kinda crap getting people to pay for something that a lot of us have copies of the originals of already
    [and yes - i felt exactly the same way about the other authors that pulled their work, refashioned it and tried to get us to pay for it.]

    ME! I have just finished reading all 3 books of the series in the past fortnight. Loved them! Going to re-read them again. Got hubby to put them on my kindle for me after i heard them being talked about on 'Today' lol. Dont think he knows what the books are about .

    I am reading this Currently on the second book and I must say, it's not my usual genre but I am loving it... Secretly reading it when the bf is around cause I don't want to be caught reading raunchy fiction though. lol

    I don't find it badly written, but then I wanted a quick read with which to escape so perhaps this is why...

    He started out as Edward Cullen though. It was originally a twilight fanfic


    You'd think she would have changed the distinctly twilight ish qualities of her characters (specifically stuff like bronze hair o.O)-well at least I thought she did lol
