did not like it

So I've read better fanfiction, which is completely relevant given that this book used to be a Twilight fanfic -- the author merely did Find and Replace on names and a few other bits.

The portrayal of BDSM in this is COMPLETELY atrocious and wrong. Christian Grey isn't a dominant, he's an abusive asshole. It's obvious that the writer either didn't do the research or she just skimmed the surface, picking up all the wrong ideas. If you come away from this thinking that's what BDSM is about, you know nothing but harmful information.

And even aside from that, the erotica is terrible. I've seen better, sexier porn.
