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!
