A few days ago it was valentines day, so i figured I should talk about a romantic themed book. I am not the romantic type, so I have never been able to actually finish a romantic or exotic book, including 50 shades of grey, by E. L James. A friend recommended it to me, so I decided it was worth a read, unfortunately I was unable to make it past the first two chapters. These chapters basically talk about how the main character Ana, fills in for a important interview for her friend Kate who had come down with the flu. Ana goes to the interview, and is instantly attracted to Christian Grey (shocker). I stopped reading at this point because I had a feeling the book will be extremely predictable, repetitive, and I really hated the character Christian Grey. He is controlling, and shows many signs women should look for in abusive relationship, and if you have been in a abusive relationship, I would advise to not pick up this book.
Along with the fact I cannot stand Christian Grey’s character, this book is a fanfiction of Twilight, and needless to say probably has the same disappointing story line. The Twilight books and 50 Shades of Grey seem to share the same predictable story development, and sloppy grammar, which is why I would not recommend to waste your time reading either.
If you have a point that shows this book is worth reading, comment below!
