*copied from my comments of Fifty Shades of Grey*

Yeah. I read this book. The trilogy was definitely good for a summer read, but I have some problems with it, as a whole.

First off, this series is very clearly a fanfic. There is nothing wrong with writing and reading fanfiction (as a prolific reader & writer of fanfiction myself), but when it is so blatantly a ripoff of someone else's work, you would think the editor or agent would have tried to help James be a little more subtle.

Second, James clearly has a very negative and very incorrect view of BDSM, and of that specific community. If you are reading this for ideas to spice up life in the bedroom, please don't. There are better, more accurate, more caring sources out there then this series. Christian is a terribly messed up human, and how he treats Ana isn't really inline with how the community believes in treating each other. (I have really read a lot, because I couldn't believe that Christian was a good example of BDSM. Lo and behold, he's not.)

Thirdly, why did James' editor hate her? There were so many spelling and grammatical mistakes in the PUBLISHED books that I cried. I CRIED. Not because I was sad about anything in the book, but because my English degree and English teacher's SOUL was dying. I don't know if this was just in the versions published in the UK (that's where I bought II and III because I was living there at the time), but I couldn't not cringe.

Fourth in my rant: This whole "Mrs. Robinson" stuff is ridiculous as well. Actions from the past do not provide an excuse for actions in the present. All they do is provide motivation, but that does not excuse your behavior. An adult from your past was not-so-great - that does not mean that you, when you grow up, have to be not-so-great, too.

Please.... I get the appeal of reading this, and I don't blame a soul for enjoying it. Just please read with the knowledge that so much of the stuff in the books are incorrect and terrible representation of a lifestyle.

It did not get better, even with the aid of an editor.

What would you do if an attractive person has a dark past that makes you continue to try to save him?

There are so many good books available, would not waste my time on this book. I found what I read really sick. I wonder if the author would recommend this for her children's reading.

Yes it was a fanfic of Twilight because all it added was bondage to the mix. Yes the writing is poor quality, but why read it if you going to hate on it, unless you like poorly written literature? I like the book because yes there are some people who don't have a personality even at the age Ana is at because they don't know who they are as person also someone woman who experience sex for the first time don't have anything to relate their first time with so give the book a break if you going to criticize at least know where the author is coming from, which mind you, is a teenager or a young adult book and this how we think it's not for the potential of full grown adult who has the maturity or elegance of 30 or 40 or hell even a 50 year old most people might find it appalling but that's just how it is. And yes I do agree with the multiples of "oh mys and my inner goddess is," was used too much, but to the author's credit she knew she was writing something that would A. sell and B. piss of people and C. make money off the stupidity of teenaged girls and others alike it's because mostly this is what is selling in our society today.

Much better than the first. Not really my style of book, but I find the Grey books a guilty pleasure. I say guilty because it is not the same caliber as many books I have read, yet it is still a page turner.
