Fifty Shades of Grey - E L James
Advantages: Good for the imagination thinking about a hot young billionaire falling for a young shy girl
Disadvantages: Repetitive, Predictable
Now I HAD to get this book as absolutely everyone i have ever met in my life seemed to be talking about it and i must say i enjoy a saucy book before bed... ;) But i gotta say what's the big deal? ok so i read the first 3 chapters and a slow steady start but quite enjoyed it... I must say Christian Grey (main character) sounds yummy and saucy but as for the storyline, i found it rather embarrassing that i was reading it, it has the basis for a great story line a young shy girl meeting a hot billionaire and of course showing him love (and a lot of sex) but i felt the book was very repetitive, almost to predictable and to be honest boring! the saucy sex scenes i had heard so much about were not to saucy and repetitive and generally not what i was expecting!
Maybe i had to high expectations for this book where everyone seems to be obsessed at the moment and maybe that's why i just couldn't be happy with it! But i do still feel it wasn't very well wrote and i must say i will not be reading the other two (although the 3rd is apparently very good) I don't feel i can sit through another repetitive predictable book to get there...
My opinion of coarse and a lot of people agreeing and disagreeing but i wouldn't waste your time ;)
Summary: Repetitive, Predictable Wouldn't bother...
