    Is the 50 shades series and its continuation really so bad?

    I've read some reviews, and so far I came up with the notion that those books are so badly written I should read them just so I could laugh over the "quality" of writing. Opinions?

    I couldn't get through the free kindle sample. Which really doesn't make me qualified to judge the book as a whole, but I feel like it says something when you can't even finish a snippet. Some people like it, but if you're looking for erotica, there is plenty of stuff out there that is written better.

      Since 50 shades are way-too-long-and-badly-written fanfic, I think I will look in the fanfic genre for better erotica - I already know a wide range of authors, who are not published, but so, so much better that what I've seen of 50 shades so far...

    The quality is awful - I couldn't stomach more than a few pages - not cause of the content (that itself doesn't bother me), but because of the writing. I've read MUCH better.

    I saw a meme some place about it - that had it not been based in upper class, if it had been based in a trailer park - it would have been a CSI episode not a 'romance" book.

      I've seen the meme - and I completely agree with that. I think the theme of the series itself wouldn't be all that bad, if it wasn't that badly handled.
