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'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.
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.
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
Maybe it would be easier to read if you didn't read Twilight and saw how all the charachters were based on Twilight charachters.† I think that the "Holy Hell"s and "My inner goddess is doing the samba" over and over would have been enough to annoy me, even if I hadn't read them.
I think also the fact that it is (poorly) written from the point of view of someone who is just imagining what a D/s relationship might be like, obviously with no research or idea into what a healthy one actually is, irritates a lot of people. And the fact that this Grey fella seems like a creepy stalker.
My take is that people are taking fluff WAY too seriously. Someone linked an article called "Why Fifty Shades of Grey is giving bondage a bad name" or something like that. I'm not so sure it had such a good name to begin with.
Christian grey is Edward Cullen, the sparkly vampire.† Her little mexican friend who she makes talk like speedy gonzalez is Jacob (I think his name was Jose?). The sister is Alice, the parents are exactly the same as Edwards parents, the brother is the same big burly brother.† I mean, pretty much down to the physical characteristics they are the exact same characters.† She was writing it as fan fiction so I can't really complain about that, but it is very much a recycled book.
the books were loaned to me by a friend who 'loved them'
Typos in the books. Srsly how does this happen with spellcheck and editors and publishers??!! The words were 'longue' as in chaise lounge and the other was 'sandles' as in sandals. (???)
Got sick of the lines 'Holy crap!' 'his mouth formed a thin line' and the term 'stills' really quckly.
I honestly thought these books would be serious SM stuff. Hardly
It's like reading a 15 year old's diary.
The only redeeming quality for me was that the books do keep your attention like Arwen mentioned. Guns, high speed chases, kidnappings.....make you stick around.
I got so tired of the drawn out, dragged out sex scenes, I would skip them. Serious snore. If these scenes were what the average female reader needed so badly and are making some 'blush' they sorely need some excitement in their lives
Jo, it is "chaise longue" - means "long chair".
Unless you were saying that "chaise lounge" is what was written in the book. In which case, carry on! Either way, spelling/grammar/typos in books? Ridiculous.
(also "chaise lounge" is no longer considered incorrect in the States so uh... I don't know whatever).
I read all three of these books. They were kind of engaging as far as what Jo said - kidnappings, rescues, the character's motives, etc. But the sex scenes got really repetitive and from what I've seen of S & M (which admittedly is only some browsing online) these scenes were tame. It was kind of like meanyism rather than sadism.
That guy Arwen posted is Matt Bomer who would make perfect a Christian Grey - even more so in this pic -
I like this girl for Anna- I don't watch Pretty Little Liars but her name is Ashley Benson.
I read the book and eh..I looked forward to reading it every time I got the chance but after I finished the book I'm not dying to know what happens in the next books. Maybe..but I haven't downloaded it yet.
I guess every one in Seattle cocks their head a lot.
I thought they would tie up a lot of loose ends in the 1st book which never got finished. Why don't we ever find out what Christians company does exactly? It has something to do with aid to Afica or whatever but is something shady about his business the way he is always having weird business phone conversations?
Why didn't they go into the back-story of Mrs. Robinson and their relationship and his real parent's more?
Maybe these are described more in the 2nd and 3rd books? Can someone that read the next two give me a clue if they talk about more of this stuff?
