Destiny asked:

Can everyone stop hating on this book if you think just because it's a fan fiction it's bad then leave and ignore the book and leave us who enjoy it to be happy. Geesh. She is an amazing writer and a better writer than you will ever be so just stop and leave

alex People, like I, dislike this book not because it is fan-fiction. Fan-fiction itself isn't what is being targeted at; the lack of realism within this book is being prodded and insulted-- get your facts right. I have no real "hate" for this book, but I do strongly feel that this particular book is glorifying and romanticizing abusive relationships. Anna Todd masked this love as if its something to desire. That's what people--like me--have a problem with.
And saying, "She is...a better writer than you will ever be" makes me me want to laugh. I think you're overestimating her talent. Read something that will enlighten you, not feed on your low-self esteem.

Sabrina Dourado Thank you, someone who is on the same page as me.
Priya Bhasin(the_bibliophilic_world) We cannot ignore the bad writing and romanticizing of a relationship that is abusive and toxic.
