I don't recommend Fifty Shades of Grey.

*****

I have no intention of reading Fifty Shades of Grey until a GR friend of mine mentioned in her 1-star review that this book is what you call a "Mommie Porn". At first read i was offended, of course. What does that coined term meant? that Mommies will love this porn? As a mom to my (almost) two-year-old son, it was downright offensive to me. So i pick Fifty Shades up for me to read. It is not so much as i want to disprove that term (because I generally like erotica and i was afraid i will like this one), but I want to know how the generalization on mommies came about.

First. I didn't like Fifty shades. Second. I didn't see the reference(s) that led to that "mommie porn" term. Third. This is mild erotica, so i don't see where all those "yucks" and "eews" and "omg that's gross" comments about Ana's and Christian's sexual acts are all about. Pu-leaze, don't be so self-righteous.

The major conflict of the story was ridiculous. I mean, you were already tied, chained, and whipped into eroticaland, but when Grey hits you with the major blows in the end, you "suddenly" realized what a fucked-up guy he was who get off from hurting women? Ana, you just realized that, then? For someone who claimed to be smart, you are absolutely stupid and dense.

Ana is shit-crazy, with her "inner goddess" bullshit. Arguing constantly with her inner goddess was so annoying! I get it, your "inner goddess" wants to fuck with Grey every. single. time. Jeez. You don't have to be so repetitive about it. Oh, and yeah, Ana was devirginized by an arrogant-then-sweet-then-dominant-then-sweet-again sadistic millionaire (or billionaire?).

Oh, Christian Grey. What i wouldn't be give to be in Ana's shoes... nothing! For someone so fucked up, you sure are the man of Ana's dreams. and for the love of... lust? climax? orgasm? Ana can't seemed to get rid of your charms. Perhaps your fucking ways supercede your dominant asshole-ness? What is there to love about you? It is better that you detain yourself in your Red Room of Pain.

The thing that grates me the most is the lame and sucky dialogue. How can you be titillated when you are reading the most insipid, and stupidest line exchanges of all time?!! Ridiculous, i tell you. utterly ridiculous.

If you ever get to read Fifty Shades of Grey, please enjoy it mindlessly. If you get turned on, don't blame yourself. be lustful, then. after all, whose breath wouldn't hitched if you read about Grey's fingers nearing Ana's apex of her thighs? *snickers*

Laters, baby.
