It's unbelievable how often I hear about this book these days. "Fifty shades of Grey". It has become a sort of a reference point, you need to mention it to appear fashion-forward and well-read. I read this "novel" last summer, by accident. ("Yeah, right" you must be thinking).
Arriving to the Zurich airport to leave for vacations I realized I had nothing to read on the plane. So I stepped into the airport bookshop to get something funny and light for the flight. The choice was no brainer - "Fifty shades of Grey" has been all over the place, so I picked it up, read a summary and a few lines from a random page. Already sitting in the plane I looked at a small print on the back of the book: "erotic novel"... I cringed (my love of erotic literature has faded when I moved on from theory to practice).
The plot: Anastasia Steele, a virgin student, meets a young magnate of unusual sexual practices. He is into dominance/submission, she is not, the figures. A nice script for a uncomplicated adult movie. I admit I could have lived with the plot if the text was at least a tiny bit more complex. The most frequent phrase of the book is "Oh, my...". C'mon you guys!
In short, I had a hard time finishing the novel and I have not a slightest interest of knowing what happens to their butt plugs in the next two parts, but if something extraordinary happens, please let me know!
Nice weekend and sweet consensual sex, everyone!
