What is all of the buzz about? My wife and her friends are all of a sudden into these over the past year or so. Is it worth my time checking it out?

I heard 50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction of Twilight. And that 50 shades was a terrible book.

Twilight is most definitely worth it!!!! I have 50 shades of grey but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

I'm not going to read 50 shades. Maybe I'm wrong and it a fantastic book, It's a possibility. But the whole dominate male/innocent female doesn't appeal to me.

I'm currently working my way through the first book in the 50 Shades trilogy.
I'm taking notes chapter by chapter and I'm planning on writing up a review when I'm done. It'll be here and on my blog.

50 shades is a good series and a very good insight to s & m i think,emotion wise from both characters.

Twilight is a vampire high school romance. 50 Shades is a fan fic that was originally published on the internet, but when the writer realized how popular it was, took it to a publisher and it's now sold in stores.

50 Shades is a VERY introductory look at a very unhealthy bdsm relationship. Although it has gotten the interest of many people, it is also not really a wonderful look at BDSM. However, if you're curious for more, many local dungeons, sex stores, etc are holding classes based around the 50 shades books.

Not exactly the pinnacle of literature, but indulging in silly girly fiction can be fun sometimes.

Twilight- Depressing girl likes depressing vampire.
50 Shades- If you were to take out the sex scenes, you'd see how fucked up their relationship really is. The sex scenes are pretty great. Keep in mind that the writer was a t.v. producer, and it's a book obviously designed to sell. I had been interested in BDSM prior and these books turned me off. It took me awhile to restart my research on real BDSM.

I know it sounds harsh, but I love to read good books. I personally wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
