So, I finally finished all 3 books of Fifty Shades and I, personally, was extremely disappointed. Just to begin, it's one of the worst written books I have ever had the misfortune to read. Unfortunately for me, I have this issue where I can't leave a book once it's started...it must be finished.......so I was "forced" to read them all. I seriously would like to take up a collection to send the author a thesaurus! Seriously? If Miss Steele was "awash with sensation" one more time; I just don't know what I’d do!
As for content......okay, what 21 year old doesn't have some clue about technology? How do you make it through college nowadays without an email address at the very least? Also, let's step back........we go from "who is this guy?" to "I can't live without you!" in five weeks.......one of which was spent broken up. I'm sorry, no. It's not even remotely believable. I know the point was just to fill in the gaps between the badly penned sex scenes, but could we please take a moment to develop a relationship?
Going on, did the author pick up a technical manual about BDSM and then just copy out definitions word for word? I thought you were supposed to write about what you knew? Every "instance" was the opportunity for one great big eye roll!!! Oh, stow your twitching palms! I know it's a "fantasy" or whatever, but come on now, women, how many times do you find yourself "panting" and "begging"? Also, might I point out that never was she as sore as a virgin turned porn star should be? I don't care how much lube you have, at some point, you're going to hurt with that much activity!
This brings me to my current frustration with a lot of literature as well. I am so sick of emotional morons! I mean, come on, does every woman have to be a gaming-playing twit who becomes totally devoid of intelligent thought at the site of a decent looking guy? It's exasperating! What are guys supposed to think about us???
All I can say is that the author is lucky she had a taboo working in her favor or she'd have to use her books for firewood this winter!
