Default 50 Shades of Grey - WTF?

Hey everyone.

Why has everyone lost their minds over 50 Shades of Grey? I actually picked up a copy, had a flick through a few pages and couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

Plus, all the supposedly raunchy content is readily available for free and in video form if you just flick through internet for all of two seconds.

It's a worldwide phenomenon and has been hailed as a book that can save marriages because of how amazing it will be at spicing up entire nations sex lives ... really? Are you kidding me?

Anyway, what do you all think is going on, and have any Heresy members (or you wives/GF's) read the book yet, and if so is the hype warrented?

I personally think the whole thing is a load of marketing driven nonsense that is following the same mass pulp bullshit format of Twilight, Hunger Games, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and all those other fads that somehow leave teens and women screaming and crying in line at book stores and concerts across the world, and leave us guys going, "seriously, what is going on here!".

Like I said, does anyone have a clue what is going on with this freakin book?

(Also, the thing I hate about bringing up these damn fads is that you are essentially fanning the flames of the damn things, for example you can't go on any good bands music videos on youtube such as Limp Bizkit, Metallica, Korn etc without reading about Justin F*cking Bieber, but hopefully by discussing it we can open peoples eyes to the fact its utter bullshit.)

From what I can gather, a friend of mine has read the book, it's poorly written porn for Daily Mail readers. Because it is a book with an ambiguous title, it makes it OK to read rather than watching Bondage Sluts 4 on your laptop.

Good call. Bondage Sluts 1-3 were pretty weak, but they really kicked things into gear from 4 onwards.

Anyway, I think that should actually one of the reviews included in the book:

"badly written porn for Daily Mail Readers" says normtheunsavory.

Lol.

Why is it that when I read porn in the middle of the mall it's'"creepy" but when women do it it's,"uplifting". It's damn sexism is what it is.

Its not so much the reading the makes it creepy, its your pants round your ankles and the strained look on your face

Because women no longer have to get their jilly coopers off, well, jilly coopers.

Missus loves it, until I flipped her mid shag upside down and jammed a thumb in her wrong un. she didnt enjoy that.

As someone involved in the local BDSM community, it's nothing more then a joke to people that take it seriously. It's poorly written, and when the most extreme thing I've heard in the book is a little slap and tickle, and a little handcuff action I can only imagine the faces of the housefraus when they go to a real local dungeon looking for a similar experience.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Got it from the library (not paying to read that shit) to see what all the fuss was about. To be honest, its shit... Sooo badly written, its only popular because of it's shock value, and its given rise to a bunch of cheap knockoffs. Went to WHSmiths and the trilogy is 1,2,3 and then some other 'mummy porn' knockoff is 4th. Just frustrates me that women with the fucking IQ of an American Football Player feel the need to get wet and excited over the shightiest book in existance. Well done E.L James for single handedly fucking up literature....
