Okay, I was put off by the people...especially Sue, who condemned the bad writing. But one day, out of curiosity I purchased a Bilio edition.I was totally wiling, at that time, to just let it go...but I have to say that while I found it somewhat titillating I just couldn't get past the dangling participles on every single page. When she writes that he pinioned her, three times...I just couldn't get past the fact that pinioned means to cut off the last joint of a wing of a bird to prevent flight. It is sad that this idiot has captured an audience and is making a lot of money with this pathetic drivel. Exactly what does this say about us? That we are hungry for the kind of eroticism that she gave us? Or what? I don't typically subject myself to such bad writing....but I seriously have to question what on earth the proof reader was doing when she or he passed over such horrible mistakes in grammar. I fully understand that this book in pornography and pornography is not literature, but why it is a run-away best seller is a big question. It appears to have been written by a ninth grader. I am so embarrassed that I paid money for this pitiful schlock. She must be laughing all the way to the bank.
It makes me want to write real erotica. I totally regret paying for this book. I always want to support authors, but this just made me feel raped and cheated.
May I suggest that the author take a course in grammar?

I don't want to say I told you so, Sylvia BUT I told you so. I was just trying to save you some $$$. I think Tyler could write a better novel...with his butt.
"So Sue, what did you really think of 50 Shades?" There, I saved you all from writing that.

I'm so glad so many of you have read these books. I have no interest in buying or borrowing the books but am truly enjoying the commentary here!!

Thanks ladies for saving me some dollars. The book didn't sound like something I would like, but I was very happy to have your reviews.

Sylie, I am literally laughing my head off. My sister admitted last weekend that she bought the Nook book and actually read it t this summer. She is a school teacher, formerly a reading specialist at the elementary school level, then decided to go back to the classroom, 1st grade, because she wanted to capture kids early and entice them to read ... and (her words) "I read this piece of junk myself this summer?" I mentioned this thread to her and said that many have said that books 2 and 3 are better than book 1. Her response ... "I'll take their word for it." LOL!

I am currently on the second book and think that so far I really like the series. I agree that you do find yourself rooting for the characters. Some parts are just like wow and I can not wait to read more.
