Fifty Shades of Crass?
Okay, you all who have read "Fifty Shades of Grey" and loved or hated it, I want you to convince me that you and your opinion is right. Is it worth my money and my time? Have I somehow managed to avoid the biggest joke in the world by not reading it? Why do I need your opinion on this? Because for all that I can normally make this decision on my own, I can't get over the horrific reviews, and somehow that makes me want to read it for the train wreck I'm beginning to believe it might be.
I've even read some excerpts that not only shocked me, but left me thinking that it was far from the sensual, sexual story that so many people are making it out to be, but more of a full on porno. Nor can I get over the fact that this was fan fiction, that this couple was really meant to be Edward and Bella. (Okay, this part I really have difficulty with, I mean, how does one take someone elses world, characters and such and then get away with making money off it???)
So, am I missing out, or have I dodged the bullet? I really am looking to see what you all think, so let me have it! And no, not with the paddle.
