So I just finished the Fifty Shades trilogy, and while it definitely sucked me in, (bad choice of words?), I ended the series with the same feelings as I did after reading book one.
“While I agree that this book is extremely captivating, all of the hype surrounding the eroticism and fetishes involving the character’s relationship, seems a bit odd to me.
It’s 2012. Flip on your TV after 10pm and you’ll see borderline inappropriate scenes right in your living room.
Get over it.” – post from May 12, 2012
As the book progressed, I felt that the storyline became more and more unrealistic, and my growing annoyance for Anastasia became more and more prominent.
I mean..who doesn’t know how to use a computer in the year 2011!?
Half of college curriculum had been computer based for at least a decade at this point, not the mention email, which she also failed at using.
She did, however, know how to use a gun (how convenient), as well as her lower lip, which she continued to bite no matter what emotion she was feeling at any given time.
- angry- bite my lip
- sad- bite my lip
- scared- bite my lip
- frustrated- bite my lip
Put your damn lip away, inner goddess , you know what you’re doing
All criticism aside, this book is filled with mystery, erotica, action, agony, and it is addicting in every way.
You won’t be able to put it down.
However, for those of you who have yet to nose dive into the kinky and twisted world of Christian Grey, I just want you to realize a few things before you do.
The Five Rules of Fifty
1. Your significant other will never be as obsessed with you, or richer, than the man in this book.
2. You will not be given a $100,000 car just for being pretty, nor will your closet become filled with clothes that magically fit your frame without ever trying them on
3. If your partner texts, calls, emails and stocks you throughout the day, or wants to spank you if you roll your eyes/disobey them…That does not mean protection and control.
It means RUN.
4. If an ex of your partner is standing in your kitchen with a gun, then drops to their knees and surrenders to the sight of your partner.. I’d say that you have a bad case of baggage on your hands.
An extra $50 baggage fee applies if your partner proceeds to give their ex a sponge bath before sending them off to rehab.
And without totally giving the book away… The most important thing to remember is this…
5. You will not convulse with pleasure every time you and your partner speak, kiss, graze arms, make eye contact, or stand alone in an elevator.
If you do..I think we’ve found the author of our next novel.
