Hey guys! Alright so long story short, I've finally decided to right about the mass controversy over the "50 Shades Of Grey" Trilogy, now that the movie is coming out. So here we go...
Honestly, I've read all the books and I didn't find them to all that bad. We must all keep in mind the specific genre it is. It is erotica people. It's supposed to have sex in it. Don't like, don't read. That simple. Now about the whole "Oh that is so wrong". The kink expressed in the book is a kink many people share and I don't see a problem with it, as long as it is consensual. Let us all remember that Anastasia, the main character in the book, WILLINGLY went along with everything Christian did, intill the end. She didn't like something, she left.
I was talking to my mother about it and she expressed the belief that it was whips and chains one page after another untill I explained that actually, the only time they ever had a harsh touch was at the very end when she walked out on him. That descion leads us to the next books of the trilogy where Christian learns to change his ways for the woman he loves.
All in all, the plot line is good considering the genre it was meant to be. The writing itself? Eh, I've read better Fan Fiction by virgins, so yes I'll give you that. But the fact that so many people can criticize this book when it has sold so many copies and, lets be honest, turned on about 80% of them at least, is ridiculous. This is just an issue of people not being comfortable in admitting their own kinks.
Now, with 50 Shades of Grey, many people have been making parody books. I discovered this yesterday when I found out about "50 Shades Of Alice Through the Looking Glass" ....this book was actually the second in the series but it was... eye opening. If you looking for a book to expand your horizons, look no further. I'll say it's pretty promiscuous.
So in that retrospect... 50 Shades of Alice is even worse than the original. And erotica is nothing new, so I don't understand why this certain book is getting all the crap.... that doesn't make sense. There are TONS of books out there just like it. Look up "Chuck Tingle" I freakin dare you.
You wanna talk about something weird? Yeah, let's talk about Chuck Tingle.
