I haven't. But I hear so many people talk about it. Is is really as interesting as they say it is?
There is so much hype about this book! I'd like to know what its all about too.
I have written hubs on the first two of the series so far, and I am nearly done the final book in the series. If you're interested it may give you a little more information on what they're about, and the hubs don't give too much away!
I read the first two pages and it was agony. The story began as alternate reality Twilight Fan Fiction. (Same characters but different roles and no vampires). When it got popular amongst Twilight fans the author changed the names and self published. It quickly became a good selling book because of the fan base the author already had but in my opinion it wasn't well written at all. To begin with I'm not a big fan of twilight so that didn't help but on top of that I thought the characters were fake and the dialogue to phony. Basically I don't recommend it but if you do decide to read it try to find the fan fiction version online because at least that's free.
I've heard the same thing from others, but still, the books are quite popular: the writer self-published and made a mint on Amazon downloads, and now it's been published traditionally. I have to admit, I'm a bit curious. But not enough to buy it.
The original fan fiction is still online to read for free, it still has the characters from twilights names but as far as I know it's the same otherwise.
I haven't, but when it comes to Twilight fan fic, surely nothing can beat "Forbiden Fruit: the tempation of Edward Cullen" (yes, two misspellings in just the title).
No one knows whether it was serious or a joke. It's spawned many drinking games, such as "take a sip every time there's an English usage error," but for safety these games are only played by taking a small sip, and never with alcohol.
Google if you dare. Warning: It is vile.
Even though E.L. James wrote the story based on her fan fiction, it has nothing to do with Twilight, in case that was leading to hesitation to read it. I just finished a hub about the first book in the Fifty Shades trilogy if you're interested! http://unicque.hubpages.com/hub/Fifty-Shades-Book-One
I have not read it yet, and am on the fence about it. I heard it was terribly written but I'm curious because there is so much hype about it. I don't know if I want to pay for it, maybe I can find someone I can borrow from.

Remember the passionate fighting between fans and anti-fans of the book-turned-movie, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'? Well, 'Fifty Shades Darker' is now being filmed - and there is still one more movie after this, 'Fifty Shades Freed'. The problem with these books is that they ARE written harmfully and...

Why do you think 50 Shades of Grey is so popular?I understand that it is an erotic novel, but aren't there a few hundred thousand erotic novels on the shelves. What is it that women find so fascinating about this particular story?

Am I the only woman who didn't like 50 Shades of Grey?I read the first book, and barely made it through. Between the constant references to how "hot" Grey is and the overuse of the word "clamber," I became annoyed about half way through. I will give the author credit though, she...
