Please tell me the book isn't as sappy as all these quotes and that they really did pick the worst ones. Ugh.

LOL @ one of the comments "Sounds like she has diarrhea in a few of those."

The series started out as Twilight fan fiction.

That is really all that needs to be said.

Save yourself a lot of eye rolling and just read this instead.

And theres Leilawith a gun, potentially, somewhereand her crap taste in music still on his iPod. But even worse, Mrs. Paedo Robinson, I cannot wrap my head around her, and I dont want to.

Fifty Shades Darker, p. 90.

ok there are two glaring problems with the above passage:

1. anastasia feels that mrs. robinson, the old bitch christian used to bone, is a bigger threat than leila, his ex-sub, WHO HAS A GUN.

2. anastasia throws out that leila has crap taste in music after she mentions leila HAS A GUN. the sentence should have been : And theres leila- with her crap taste in music on his ipod- WHO HAS A FUCKING GUN AND WANTS TO KILL ME. AHHH! I GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE! I BETTER TAKE THESE BUTT PLUGS OUT! The End.

I gasp and I want to shout, Ive missed youall of younot just your mouth!

Fifty Shades Darker, p.11.

your penis. shes talking about your penis.

 

Torturous memories flash through my mindthe gliding, holding hands, kissing, the bathtub, his gentleness, his humor, and his dark, brooding, sexy stare.

Fifty Shades Darker, p.4.

him pulling out my tampon.

 

I clutch my forehead. Why hasnt José phoned? Come to think of it why hasnt anyone phoned?

Fifty Shades Darker, p.4.

because youre the worst and no one likes you and you have no friends.

 

And so a pattern develops: wake, work, cry, sleepI have spoken to no one, not even my mother or Ray.

Fifty Shades Darker, p.3.

friends really help you deal with break ups. too bad you dont have any.

 

E L James is a TV executive, wife, and mother of two, based in West London. Since early childhood, she dreamt of writing stories that readers would fall in love with,

About The Author, Fifty Shades Darker.

I'm sorry, but these are cracking me up and I can't sleep.

 

I still want more, I whisper.
I know, he says. Ill try.
I blink up at him, and he relinquishes my hand and pulls at my chin, releasing my trapped lip.
For you, Anastasia, I will try. Hes radiating sincerity.

Fifty Shades of Grey, p. 259.

jesus bitch, you met him a week ago and you just met his parents AND he bought you a car. ease up.

I shall go meet his parents sans culottes. Anastasia Steele! My subconscious chides me, but I dont want to listen to her I almost hug myself with glee because I know this will drive him crazy.

Fifty Shades of Grey, p. 242.

you need to get a fucking hobby.

Kate returns about twenty minutes later with pizza, and we sit, surrounded by crates, in our new open space, eating straight from the box.

Fifty Shades of Grey, p. 223.

you fucking pigs.

Is swallowing semen acceptable to the Submissive?

Fifty Shades of Grey, p. 128.

does a bear shit in the woods?

There's a web site listing the top 14 "erotic" passages in the book and I wasn't impressed. happy.gif And now I can't find the link.

Here's Ellen reading some of it. Sort of.

So - people were giving this to their mothers for Mothers Day? That's..wow.

A 60 year old work friend was just telling me how much she was LOVING this book and that I just have to read it. I'm feeling retroactively awkward.

I am ashamed to say I read this. Absolutely AWFUL - definitely NOT my taste in terms of writing. Sappy and ridiculous.

I had a flight attendant and the woman next to me reading this- I was like, what is the deal?

The flight attendant was like, "Yeah, this book makes me blush a little" and then recommended I read the Hunger Games...

Like THAT's EVER GOING TO HAPPEN!

OMG I picked up one of the books at the store, randomly opened it and started laughing my ass off! Really?
He shoved that plug so deep inside your soul felt it? Or some shit like that.

Some women at work are reading it and you can tell when they get to a certain part because they turn beet red. My one friend dies everytime I tell her "You enjoying that ho'? Huh dirty girl?". So much fun just from that aspect of it. Of course if it is sparking their sex lives more power to ya.

He looks like the middle kid from that "Home Improvement" show. Can't think of his name, but he did the voice of Simba in The Lion King.
I haven't read any of the books btw. I don't think I'd want to be caught dead reading them.

Seriously. He has to look 12? Great. He really looks like Guy Pearce. Priscilla Queen of the Desert, LA Confidential. Australian dude that never ages.

I am ashamed that the name "Jonathan Taylor Thomas" immediately jumped into my head there from Lisa's description.

He grosses me out.

I was thinking about this book last night, and thinking about why it bothered me that a lot of women seem to like it so much.  I mean, besides the fact that it is so poorly written and if you read it without laughing out loud or getting seriously exasteraped you might be really dumb.  I think the thing that bugs me is that it is based on twilight - And while I liked Twilight, I think the women who are die-hard twilight fans (the ones who don't read books otherwise, and declare it the best thing ever written types) tend to have the mentality of 12 year old girls. So basically this is erotica based on the tastes of women with the mentality of 12 year old girls.

And I'm not saying you are wrong if you enjoyed it, but I'm getting pretty sick hearing on facebook that it is SO GOOD, and I KNOW it is not.



Emokid is throwing slomo dove at my face, I guess that means he flipped me the bird
