That can not stand those 50 Shades books!! I love reading and I've read many different books.

I just do not understand what the big deal about these books are!! I read the first one, I thought it sucked. To me it is poorly written, and just the same thing over and over. I tried reading the 2nd book, but didn't get past the first few chapters. 

So many people I know love them, can't stop turning pages and read them more then once....I do not get it!!

I keep telling people I'd just rather watch porn then read these books. ;)

I'm not trying to offend anyone, just don't understand what it is I'm missing!!! :)

I have no interest in even reading it. It is not my type of literature personally.

I can't really explain, it's just poorly written and the same thing repeating itself. No plot, or story line, just seems like lots of kinky sex. Book 2 was the same thing to me.

Lots love it though...

Nothing, that's why it sucks! lol

This CEO guy is all jacked up and into really kinky sex. He meets this girl they get hooked up and then there's lots of sex. That's really all the book is about them having kinky sex and fighting, then more kinky sex. The second book seemed the same, I didn't get too far into it though.

I had first heard about it before they became this huge thing. I was going to get them, but then they burst out and I got so turned off by hearing about it alllll the time! So now I have no interest in reading them. Plus I hear the same thing from people that you're saying.

 At least you made it through the first one. I got so annoyed I had to put it down! The writing was just sad, and the sex was, well, not up to other bd/sm stuff I read years ago. I just felt sorry for that poor dumb girl. Yet, so many people I have talked to love it. Not my cup of tea.
