Default 50 Shades of Grey

So yeah, I'm reading 50 Shades of Grey.

DON't JUDGE ME!
(I bet at least half of you have read Anne Rice's Claiming of Sleeping Beauty or Pauline Réage's Story of O)


Ok, first of all, I can understand someone graduating high school a virgin. Both more and less sex happens in high school than people think. But the heroine of this book graduates from college, is 21, and attractive enough to get the attention of one of, if not THE wealthiest men in Seattle and she's a virgin?

Does not that seem odd to anyone else?

I'm about a 1/3 of the way through and while we've gotten a glimpse of the play room with whips and other toys, we've only had sex twice and both times vanilla.

I assume it gets racier?

4 users laughed. The question is: Are they laughing with you, or at you?:

Meh. Turned out to be just a romance novel with the undertone on BDSM. I'm not qualified to evaluate romance novels so I can't even tell you if it was good. Frustratingly it ended with major plot line cliff hanger like it wasn't a trilogy but one book cut into three.

This user agrees. But then, who wouldn't, right?

HA HA, you got tricked into reading a cheesy and shallow romance novel by misplaced and exaggerated market hype, pop culture meme-infection, and the fact that they deceitfully left Fabio off the cover! You will never get that wasted time back!
