Fifty Shades of Grey - a review
There are two issues here for me. Is it a good read in terms of being well-written? For me the answer is no. Then there's the sex. Bringing sexual practices into the open, ones between consenting adults that don't involve children, animals or force, especially allowing women to admit to their fantasies without fear of prejudice is a good thing, whether this book fosters anything more than sneaking away to read it on their kindles remains to be seen. You'll have to read it yourself and see and if you're loving it, you'll be glad to know that it's the first part of a trilogy, so more to come - oh, and the film of course.
I'm now reading another book which has touched me in a very different way and I'll tell you more about that later in the week.
What are you reading? I'm always looking for new books so please share your recommendations!
