I have read all 3 and liked them. many here will tell you they disliked it because it's not realistic. If you choose to read it it's best to keep in mind that dom/sub relationships aren't like that. It is very unrealistic in that sense but I still found it to be an entertaining read.

No, I haven't read it. I don't want to. From what I've heard I wouldn't recommend it.

I read the first one and part of the second. I tend to not finish books anyway lol I thought it was alright, not geat but I don't think it deserves the hype it gets, or the hatred that so many people throw at it

I haven't read it yet. I've been uncertain about reading it because of hearing some bad and negative reviews on it.

There is so much great BSDM fan fiction erotica (that's what 50 Shades is, minus the "great" part) that I have better options. I rarely read heterosexual porn, tough. Male/male is more fun for me.

50 Shades... started as fan fiction and got wildly, and in my opinion, undeservedly popular, after which it was turned into the novel trilogy currently flying off shelves in unfathomable numbers. The fascination with this series has me and many others slamming our heads on our desks, walls, etc. in frustration and no small amount of concern and confusion. The writing quality is lamentable. The content is derogatory, damaging and fallacious. The books portray BDSM and people who practice in as play and lifestyle in a negative, unfair, inaccurate, offensive manner. They glorify and romanticize abusive, manipulative, obsessive, controlling, unsafe, and inappropriate behavior that responsible, ethical practitioners of BDSM would never condone. And that's not even considering the insulting, misogynistic, antifeminist, chauvinistic ideas the books propagate. For newbies or those curious about BDSM, these books give a very unrealistic ideas that could be seriously dangerous. This is a very real fear in the BDSM community. For these and other reasons, the books are so bad that people I know in the BDSM community and lifestyle have joked that real Doms/Dommes could force their subs/slaves to read them as punishment for bad behavior or other transgressions! I read all three books to be able to offer my fair opinion and critique. If you have a working knowledge of the lifestyle and community to compare them to and want to read them for this reason, then by all means. If you want to read an example of what BDSM is not, then, I suppose, but be sure to do some non-fiction reading and/or research to understand why it's wrong. If you want to read them as a diversion or for fun, you can do better. Much better. If you do read them, take them with a grain, no, a tablespoon or two, of salt and do some research about real BDSM to compare.

If you're really looking for some opinions on 50 Shades, try looking up the many forum posts that have popped up since the book was released. There's lots of interesting opinions out there.
