“Sex is more than an act of pleasure, it's the ability to be able to feel so close to a person, so connected, so comfortable that it's almost breathtaking to the point you feel you can’t take it. And at this moment you're a part of them.

- Author unknown -




I've had a rather long list of issues when I decided to abandon ship. FSoShit is garbage and if I had read a paperback I would have burned the fucking offending thing. It's a total mystery to me why this book ever saw the light of day because, let's face it, the writing is incredibly juvenile. The story and characters are extremely poorly written and I couldn't for the life of me connect with the dumb, clumsy, naïve and immature heroine.

Also, the slimy whacko didn't deserve to be called hero. Christian is a highly manipulative, abusive and stalker-ish asshole. His whispers didn't endear him to me either. He came off as a total creep. I honestly don't understand what Ana saw in him, yet on the other hand, I didn't get it why Christian would stalk that bland and vapid wallflower. In any event, these two deserved each other and Ana obviously enjoyed Grey's blunt and crude approach.

The whole contract business was pretty much mind-boggling. I don't believe that a healthy and consensual Dom/sub relationship could be based upon such crappy and ridiculous rules.

Christian, the rich Superman (sarcasm), deflowered our wallflower in a way that's not even worthy of losing any words over that pathetic fuck. So, you did guess right. I neither found the sex to be hot nor erotic. At.All. Thus, I'd better buy him a ticket to the next Mars expedition stat. That would ensure that Mr. Grey would not return to our cozy place called Mother Earth.

FSoG lacked depth and emotion big time. Except of disgust and anger I felt nothing towards these pathetic main protagonists and their fucked up trip bored me to tears.

The winking smileys irritated the hell outta me and all that inner goddess shit made me almost blow a fuse. Jesus.Fucking.Christ. Would you give me a break already? I've read a variety of erotica books and I do enjoy great smexin' that comes with some kind of depth and great characterization. However, I'm not sorry to say that FSoG is ranking among the worst erotica books I've ever read.

What's seriously bugging me as well is the fact that the general public thinks that FSoShit provides almost every woman's erotic fantasy. I don't criticize readers who loved this book but I'm criticizing the media coverage. I don't appreciate it when these people claim to know that's what a general majority of women love to read and want in real life (or in the bedroom for that matter). Seriously? Never. Ever. FSoG is bad erotica. It's bad BDSM too.

When people say FSoG is “empowering women in their sexuality,” then I think something is seriously wrong. Never ever could this story empower me in my sexuality. What in God’s name is on their minds? I can do it all by myself with my very healthy hand, and I can gladly say that my boyfriend is empowering me just fine and is taking care of my needs. Thank you very much. BTW, my boyfriend is not an abusive and manipulative stalker. Oh, yes, now it dawns on me…my boyfriend is real.


Bottom line, the barely there plot and the characters were overly shallow, underdeveloped, immature and boring. The amateurish writing killed any desire to read anything else by this author in the future. And last but not least, my inner goddess was so fucking relieved when she had to quit eventually. It was a very tedious and crappy experience and I wish I had never bought this book, let alone attempted to go through this rubbish. I was in dire need of bleaching my brain.

Christopher Hitchens said…

Everybody does have a book in them, but in most cases that's where it should stay.

Dawn well I feel bad for you then!!! I love this book! its a book.its NOT real!


~E~ Riverina Romantics Baba, another good point from Dawn a.k.a Captain Obvious.

It is just a book honey. It's not like you spent your hard money purchasing it. And like people have pointed out to me....and I have also forwarded on to you - we are frigid because we don't like this book.

The dark sexuality of it needs to be bottled, placed on the production line and shipped post haste to the world at large.

And the masculine gasping (yes, I'm aware its an oxymoron - are you).....my Inner Goddess has no words.

Sorry Baba....sick child on this end....not enough coffee to soften my bitter tongue. Please forgive my rudeness :)

And yes I have been belted with the sarcasm stick today.

@Dawn:
Well, Dawn, clue in…do you know why readers are posting reviews? It's MY OPINION. I didn't ask for yours. Feel free to read my reviews any time but please spare me such needless comments. I am really glad it's only fiction. I mean this is just too much. Thank goodness these characters are not real. God, god, god my inner goddess would not survive that! You know what I do with books everyone loved but me? I have learned my lesson. I shut my mouth and close my eyes because I'm sure there are so many other good books out there we can discuss.

@Jodie
Thanks, hon!! You put a smile on my face. Oh, yes, about the frigid crap…two days ago my boyfriend sure as hell proved that I'm not frigid at all. Thank goodness everything is all right "down there!!"

Candus Hinderer Baba - I must inform you that I was told, today, that this book is "the hottest thing" now. When I was told of its content, I of course, went straight to Goodreads to find out what my like-minded peeps think. I've not done "erotica" in a while...since A.N. Roquelaure in college. Suffice it to say, I got married, got a job, moved to the suburbs, had babies, yatta yatta yatta, now what? Thank you for your review. I appreciate your intelligence and candor, AND, I won't be buying this book...although, I would like to be able say "yawn, no I hated it, why did you like it, let me recommend something else if that is what interests you..." Anyway, thanks, and I will be following you. LOVE LOVE LOVE the shelf: Books everyone likes but Baba....:)

Thanks for your comment, Candus. Well, I don't know what's so hot about this story. I think it was a huge turn off and an incredibly tedious read. This book has earned a top place on my WTF shelf! I'm so glad that my inner goddess survived 55 % of this story and then I just had to cave in. Gah!

Zack So, what you're trying to say is that the book(s)is (are)a piece of shit better left undisturbed, lest the stink gets on you and it's nearly impossible to get it out?

I can do that.

From reading the reviews and comments I gather that this book is an "adult" clone of Twilight, and the male lead is a psychopathic control freak who gets off on abusing and humiliating women. With a bit of the homo erotic thrown in.

And that the female lead is a self destructive, repressed, low self esteem, damaged woman. The kind who can only feel worthy of life when "fixing" someone who is more broken than they are.

It's hard enough to see and read about this type of women everyday in the newspapers and in the news broadcasts, why would I want to read about them in fiction?

I forgot who said this first but I agree "Books like "Twilight" (Twatlight in my head) are written for teens, but it's the moms that buy them"

Screw that.

A lovely and very pertinent comparison - thanks! ;D

Thanks for your comment. After seeing your favorite shelf I think Fifty wouldn't suit you. At all. You're too well-read and eloquent to read such a story.

Loved this:
Time to read, to laugh and to talk about the world at large or to talk about nothing at all. Quiet times and busy times. Time for politics. Time for friends, for family (if possible, not at the same time) and for myself. Time for a park bench, a flower, a bush in bloom, a tree in autumn. Time for puzzles and conundrums, time for some coffee or a beer or a glass of wine. Time for the ocean, for a river or a lake. Time to think. Time to act like an adult. Time to act with glee. Time for popcorn, diet Pepsi and gummy bears.

No time at all for the self righteous, the uninformed people or religion.


Yep, you are right. ^__^


Vallsykes I just laughed so hard. B, u are funny, girl! I luv'd reading this review. Though I read thru the 3 books and enjoyed the psychosis of Fifty and sheer dopey-ness of Ana, I felt like these two were way less mature than the YA characters, Bella and Edward, from which they were modeled.

Uh...yeah...glad I made you laugh, Vallsykes. Such books make me crave for a storyline with very mature older characters.

Ah, I see. I assume you're talking about this scene...

“When did you start your period, Anastasia?” he asks out of the blue, gazing down at me.
“Err... yesterday,” I mumble in my highly aroused state.
“Good.” He releases me and turns me around.
“Hold on to the sink,” he orders and pulls my hips back again, like he did in the playroom, so I’m bending down.

He reaches between my legs and pulls on the blue string… what! And… a gently pulls my tampon out and tosses it into the nearby toilet. Holy fuck. Sweet mother of all… Jeez. And then he’s inside me… ah! Skin against skin… moving slowly at first… easily, testing me, pushing me… oh my. I grip on to the sink, panting, forcing myself back on him, feeling him inside me. Oh the sweet agony… his hands clasp my hips. He sets a punishing rhythm – in, out, and he reaches around and finds my clitoris, massaging me… oh jeez. I can feel myself quicken.


No comment...well, maybe...ewwww...
Sorry, I have to comment. Is that erotic or hot? Do I want that in real life? Is that my fantasy? God, I get all worked up again.

message 121: by Laura (new) - rated it 3 stars

Laura Hayward I'm glad I read this review before I bought the book... with one criticism though. I don't consider 22 to be a mature age at all. Early 20's are all about the transition from child to adult and self discovery. If Ana was 32, then I would definitely agree :)

Brilliant review though

Haha, I'm just relieved at reading all the one-star reviews. Their relationship is just dreadfully unhealthy in every way. I was shocked over and over again at Christian's manipulation and Ana's cluelessness, and when he said that she wasn't "meant to like" her "punishments," I was floored. And then she's honest-to-god afraid of him hitting her again... horrible!

Thank you, Laura! Well, about the age and being mature/immature: maybe we will have to agree to disagree. I remember that I was very sensible and mature before I was even twenty. ;)

Jesi I'm 22, still a virgin, and when my crush sends my a winky smiley face, especially when it was the first one, I got excited. I consider myself far from immature and I believe she got the mindset of a young woman in this time very well- save for the subcondcious and inner godddess, I found that quite weird. I do agree with the sex scenes though, but I contributed it to the fact I was older and it wasn't like, "OMG if my dad catches me reading this I am SOOO D-E-A-D!!!!!!" type of thing.

The characters and the whole book are a nightmare. I have read more than 100 erotica books, and FSoG deserves the first place on my shelf of the worst-books-ever. But to each their own. When you'll have sex for the first time, I just hope for your sake that you won't get f***ed. Let's leave it at that.

Aruana I just found it sad that here you have 50 Shades of Grey getting all this media attention and when you compare it to The Shadowlands books, it comes up short. Now, Cherise Sinclair's books are how it's supposed to be done. I read 50 Shades of Grey and then right after that I read Make Me Sir ..... wow! No comparison!

I've read all Cherise Sinclair's books now and I'm suffering from withdrawal symptoms! I am really looking forward to Sam and Linda's story. They look fascinating.


message 137: by Kim (new) - rated it 1 star

Kim You are not alone!!! I agree with every word you wrote. Unfortunately, I stuck it out until the end of the first book (tampon scene and all). The writing was not only atrocious, but I thought the author was extremely lazy. If you are going to write a book from the perspective of someone from the southern US, please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with expressions and slang native to the region. I do not know any US adults, southern or not, who speak like a British teen-ager. On a related note, I know several hispanic persons and none of them say "Dios Mios" every other sentence in an effort to remind me that they are hispanic.

And don't get me started on the immaturity of every single character. I actually did a count on my Kinde, and there were something like 70 references to Anna's inner goddess, 60+ to her subconcious, close to 40 references to her lip biting (I used the specific phrase "bite lip" so there were probably more when you factor in other tenses/ways to say it) and almost 30 times it was mentioned how beautiful Christian was. Those were the phrases or words that bothered me the most, which is why I had to know how many times they popped up.

I found a great blog on Tumblr (50 Shades of Suck) where the blog author posted sentences from all three books, along with her thoughts underneath them...hilarious! And you have not lived until you have heard Gilbert Godfried read an excerpt...there is a link on the site (http://50shadesofsuck.tumblr.com/).

I really hadn't read much BDSM until FSoG came out, but after reading that crud, I needed to know that someone wrote good BDSM. Someone recommended Joey W Hill so I read her Nature of Desire series. Very good & I especially liked Nature's Law (#2). I would highly recommed #7 (Branded Sanctuary) to anyone who wants to read GOOD quality BDSM featuring a character who was new to the scene ad unsure if it was really or her.

Exactly!! Joey W. Hill is the BDSM GODDESS!! One of my all-time favorite heroes is Tyler and of course I totally love Tyler and Marguerite's story Ice Queen and Mirror of My Soul. Branded Sanctuary is very good too and I'd recommend it to readers who would like to give good BDSM a try.

Amber This book disturbed me as well, but the cliffhanger made me read the next. And I can say it was much MUCH better. Almost felt like a different author. About 20% of the sex as the first- and different. It wasn't at all about the sub/Dom crap. She actually lets us see a much softer side of Christian. (although you do have to get past the first few chapters. I was screaming at him (audiobook) while reading the first little bit) Still a bit much sex (and more detailed) than I prefer, but a much better written book. This one actually had a storyline!

It's up to you to decide if you want to give her a try. I hope you will eventually. Yes, Marguerite is a Domme but Tyler is a Dom too. So...she will submit to Tyler eventually. Give their story a go (Ice Queen and Mirror of My Soul). I think you wouldn't regret it.

Aruana, I thought the same thing initially, but I really did enjoy them a lot. I envisioned that the men were wimpy and the women were all butch-like, but neither was true. Some of the men very very alpha, just not in the bedroom. Really good characters and good writing. If you only try one, I recommend Nature's Law. The characters were my favorites of all the books. :)
