** spoiler alert ** I caved to the hype, deciding to read this book to see what all the chatter in the media was about. I felt like it was a complete waste of time, and considered chucking it after the first few chapters. I finished it because "the hype" made me think that at some point it had to get better. I expected the explicit sex scenes, but my anger toward the book was in the lack of a plausible plot, extremely weak female characters (which I loathe), and a completely crap ending. I felt like I was reading Judy Blume's version of Pretty Woman with a sprinkling of Mickey Rourke from 9 1/2 weeks. The media describes E. L. James as a Twilight fan who wrote the trilogy after reading Meyer's series. I didn't care too much for Twilight and I definitely did not care for Fifty Shades of Grey.
