    I read the first bk and half of the second before I quit. Thought it was puerile. It started as Twlight fanfiction and I expect to read my fanfiction for free, not $30 for the whole thing.

    I haven’t even read one of the books in the trilogy! I’ll have to go and check out E.L. James’ website. Thank you for this post!

    I read it when it was fan fiction, it’s a fantastic read, just don’t leave it around in front of kids!

    I read them too and couldn’t figure out why I flew through them. Could be the character questions you suggested – I don’t think it was the sex. While it wasn’t high brow literature, I found it enjoyable and that’s all I can ask for at the end of a long day 🙂

    I am half way through the frist one, and I can see clearly why it is such an attraction and a “cant’ put it down” book. Firstly, it appeals to the dark side of sex which most women keep tightly under subconcious lock and key, and it serves it up with the “romantic” fantasy of rich man, cold hrdened falls in love with poor pretty girl. So, in essence it fits the formula romance propularity with the twist of the “not so openly acceptable dark side that is part of everyone…SMDB”. Most women won’t admit they have that dark side…yet you can’t have a light side without a dark side. I found it a little too “juvenile” with the “holy crap” used repeatedly from a character who otherwise spoke with great eloquence. For my taste it was a little to loosely written, but it makes a hit because it blends two of the most popular wemens genres, womens erotica and romance…every womans dream I suppose.
