Fifty Shades of Grey

Every time I watch the news, it seems this book is mentioned.  The other day I saw that it is banned in some libraries in Florida.  So, naturally, I had to download it! 

Now, I'm no prude and I like a racy story as much as the next guy, but this book has absolutely no redeeming qualities!  Well, except for the sex, of course!  But, really, I had to stop reading it because it has no literary merit whatsoever.

Basically, it's about a girl, (can't remember her name!) a virgin, who meets Christain Grey, a rich playboy and he sweeps her off her feet.  To have a relationship with him, she must agree to his bondage stipulations.

And, that's it!  There doesn't seem to be anything else to this novel.  Yes, I quit reading about a third of the way through and I didn't even get to any bondage parts so I really shouldn't judge without reading the whole thing but that is just too much punishment! 

Flat characters.  A nonexistent plot.  And a proliferation of the word "hormones"!  Give me a break!
