Thoughts on Fifty Shades of Grey?
I haven't read the book, but I've read a thorough synopsis of the plot. What interests me and is pretty much the only reason I would read this book is because of all the 'I have it' vs 'I love it' types of feedback that I've read in various places. There seems to be a real divide in the reception of the book. I suppose what I want to know is why some women really dislike the book - is it because it deals with sexual fantasies that some women view as lewd? Socially, the book is also being connected to women as though it's the equivalent of porn for women. Any thoughts from anyone whose read the book?

I think it is the hype and marketing that causes this trash to sell, not it's literary merit, character development or story arc. It is unfortunate that some people think this is what a relationship should be. Don't waste your time or money. Last resort, buy a discarded copy from a charity shop.

I have read the whole series. I think this book somehow gives readers an insight to how women are treated, and that males still are the dominant species. it was a good book, a bit too heavy at some points but hey im 15 haha!
Personally some parts of the book upset me as to how someone would write about a women being sexually abused, but on the other hand she didn't really ever say that she didn't truly want it.
The book shows variations of love in the present day, and how sex isn't just making love now it is truly for pleasure. Mostly in males, i must say.
