You’ve probably been bombarded with many people who have been addicted recently to 50 Shades of Grey. I don't know why most women like this book a lot. And a lot of people are talking about it and they are really excited for its movie version. :)

I've been heard about that books nonstop for the past months. It was originally a Twilight fanfiction then the author of it changed some details and had it published as a book. I'm not obsessed with it and I almost dared read it. But some people say the writing is bad and that there are better M-rated or NC-17 fanfics than that. But, yes, it's a matter of opinion.

I basically see that book as one of the biggest crimes against feminism and literature. It seems like the people who really like it just have boring lives and the book allows them to escape into the (terrible, terrible) story. I really dislike the message it sends.

I am a big fan of this book! I am in love with Christian Grey (really, I am!) and I am also looking forward to seeing this book adapted in a movie. I just hope Christian Bale will play the lead role, or maybe Matt Bomer. They are both hot and good-looking and sexy :). yey!

One of the things that is so attractive about that book is that it is basically the man of the dreams of most women, as he is good looking, powerful, has a lot of money, and is able to do anything that he wants to do in his life. Because of this, it allows women to read about the things that they would like to happen in their own lives, but at the same time they just know that this is never going to be able to happen. So I enjoyed the book because of this, but I would never actually want for that to be the story of my own life because I am both happy and grateful for the things that I have.

I have some friends who seemed to have gone gaga over it. I was curious so I looked it up. I read a few paragraphs and it didn't really interest me that much. It just semen to me to be once of those harley boone type novel. I think I've read sometiere that this originally was supposed to be a fan-fiction novel to the twilight saga but then round its own audience and publisher.

I have read the first one but it didn't really interest me that much. :) I guess it's because I have been reading books and novels for a long long time ( and that includes romance novels) that the plot was not exactly new to me. But I do know a couple of friends who really liked it a lot. It seems that it reminded them of how it was as a complete innocent in the first throes of love and passion. :D
