Fifty Shades of Grey
Author: E.L James
I have noticed that many people have given this book a five star review.......my question is WHY???? I can not believe I actually read this book! By chapter two my inner goddess wanted to reach into the book and strangle the main character, her inner goddess and her sub-conscious. I mean really how clueless can one female be? Well let's meet Anastasia Steele........
For those of you who don't know, and not that it was ever a big secret. Anastasia Steele is a glorified smut version of the now infamous Bella Swan. This character will make you want to pull your hair out. She would be better off if she hid in a corner and let her subconscious and her inner goddess *said while rolling eyes* control the whole situation, I mean seriously she has got to be the most nerving character I have read about!! What has this girl acting like a complete ass well lets meet the the pompous ass that has her cherry so backed up it could be a tail light!
Christian Grey....A intimidating yet wealthy business man who is and I quote “fifty shades of fucked up" He is described as a drop dead gorgeous man with the ability to make a girl wet herself with a smile which is probably the case if you are turned on by whips and chains OH MY!!!l. Christian is too much of a controlling jackass to be anything other than a douche bag in my opinion.
The whole basis of this book is a contract!!!
Christian wants Anna to be his submissive and draws up an agreement for her to sign. I don't think that I have ever read anything so outlandish in my life. I mean for real who in their right mind is going to sign on the dotted line just to have sex with someone. Only a desperate woman would degrade herself in order to be Christian Grey's SEX SLAVE who could honestly get turned on by having your whole life dictated by some sex god on a power trip? I know I sure in the hell wouldn't the whole book is a big WTF..... As in What the F@#k is wrong with the world? Or should I say the female race in general!
Now on to the things that completely made my blood boil when it came to reading this travesty of a book.
I am trying to understand how it is that for such a goody goody who had never been deflowered until meeting Mr.Grey, managed to perform oral sex on this man almost as good as if not better than a professional whore. *cheers to the deep throat queen * I was completely at my wits end with the descriptions in this book, honestly why would you say crap like "I want to f@#k your mouth" and then describe the female genitalia as "my sex", really get with the times already no woman in this century says that crap to a man. As for the characters in this book the only with any common sense is Kate, she can see through Christian Grey and his bullshit! *way to go Kate* I guess the whole reason I am so annoyed is that as a woman I would never and I mean NEVER allow any man control or boss me around I don't care how much money he has or that is he has the biggest dick I have seen I have respect for myself . This book was nothing more than a man’s guide to corporal punishment and rough sex (providing men read it)!!!!

Publisher: Harper Teen
Available: March 2012
I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
My Review: This was a a difficult read for me. The back and forth between then and now became extreamely confusing, but do not let that stop you from going out and grabbing a copy when it hits shelves later this year. Lauren continues with an amazing story. In this book we, the reader are taken along on Lena's journey of self discovery and survival. Seeing how this book will not be available for several more months I will not spoil it for the readers who are anticipating the release. I will however tell you that several new characters are introduced and a few old characters make surprising appearances in the book. If you can overcome the layout you will not be disappointed in the story.
