50 shades

I got so bored on this holiday, that I keep telling myself I should have just gone on hospital training...,so so bored that I was scouting for things to keep me busy...
So, I finally decided to join the train of people who have read the 50 shades series to really look into what the madness was about.

I also heard 3 out of 5people have read the book..na real wah ooo..

I eventually gave in to the pressure and decided to read the book 'cos after watching my sister read the book holding on to it with one hand and brushing her teeth with the other....and listening to my cousin ramble on about the book for over an hour...Ok that's it ! I have to see for myself..

***
The book is in 3 parts..yes three parts
1. 50 shades of Grey.
2. 50 shades darker.
3. 50 shades freed.

I have gone through part 1 and 2 and it took me 2days....! I told you i was jobless didn't I?

...but I am not to  excited about the third part, forgive me those who loved the book.
I agree it had some good moments but the storyline was too redundant and I feel like the story could have been compiled in two volumes instead of three and the constant thing in the book and maybe the major reason most people were hooked on the book is the explicit erotica details....Oh my the book glorified BDSM like it was the best ever thing in the world! Every 2 pages or so there had to be some sexual moment in great detail...,when i mean great I mean GREAT details...argggh! no be small thing at all ooo! The details were explicit enough to feel like you are actually in a classroom with a very competent teacher...I had to open google to view almost all the "equipments" described in the book!
At some point to be sincere I was annoyed..,the only thing that kept me flicking the pages was the fact that the hero was a 27year old mega millionaire with a 21 year old damsel who he kept showering with gifts enough to keep a girl's mind running.!

Not so great a read so far..,in my own opinion but not too bad at the same time.
If you are looking for a great story with excellent penmanship, this book is not for you but if you are looking for a story with a course on sexual dominance 101 the book is the way to go!

Have you read the book? If yes let me know what you think.

cheers people!

  3. I read enough of such books growing up, when I read everything I could lay my hands on, and I they did not add anything to my life so now I am more choosy.

  7. This is one book I am very sure I won't read sha.

    I kinda disagree with your statistics. There's no book in this world that 3 out of every 5 have read. Maybe the Bible sha, and that's because its the most-read book in the world.

  8. I tried reading the book too, and I totally agree with your opinion. I didn't go pass chapter 3.

    @ilola: True no book has that kind of readership, but I guess the rave about this 50 shades...is &^%$£. I read about a British hotelier that replaced the bible in the hotel rooms with 50 shades...
