50 shades of bleh....

OK, so........ well over a year ago when these first came out I bought them. At that time I was completely unprepared and had no idea what they were about so I Now, I am not a prude at all...I have read anything and everything under the sun so it wasn't that. I just couldn't connect so I shelved them.
Fast forward to now......
I am always in a book rut lately so I got these "bad boys" (ha) back out figuring millions can't be wrong. And well, you are! HA! These are a super easy read and the sex scenes are intense but I just can't get into it. I thought these were boring, I didn't enjoy the characters and after trying really hard a few nights to get into them I put them away again. I don't get it? I know these aren't "literally accomplishments" but I just don't like them. Now if a movie comes out of course I will see it.......a movie would be fun but reading 3 books not so much.
I am crazy huh? Trust me....I really wanted to love them, true story. I guess the cheese stands alone.

All...ALL...of the girls in my office are crazy over these books so I thought I would give it a try. I got through the first one and it.was.horrible. I made it like 8 pages into book 2 and quit. My only explanation for why I hated it was it's just stupid. What 22 year old girl wouldn't want a hot guy showering her with presents? It wasn't the sex that bothered me, it was that I thought what's her name and Christian were just...stupid. Thanks for letting me rant.

I totally agree! I didn't even get half way through the first book before I quit. There was just nothing to take away from the story... in my opinion it wasn't even good entertainment.

I am SOOOOOO glad to hear I am not alone because all the women in my small town are crazy about them! The books were passed around by all the mom's of my son's baseball team last summer. I am in no way a prude and I couldn't get into them at all. I didn't read the second or third book.

I didn't even try them and after reading your post and the comments I am so glad I didn't waste my time.
