50 Shades of What-the-Hell-Did-I-Just-ReadI've never been so bored reading an erotic novel. The sex scenes are, to say the least, repetitive and boring. Anastasia's innocence went from slightly charming to annoying--at one point she even said, "I didn't know having anything there could feel good."
The negative portrayal of BDSM-ers, boring
As I wrote for my review of the first book in this series, it should send out warning bells that the 50 Shades series was E.L James' first attempt at writing and was originaly written as a Twilight fan fiction novel.
I'm going to assume that anyone reading this review has read Book One, so they should be familiar with the characters. Book Two starts out right where Book One ended. Anastasia has just left Christian for spanking her too hard. Obviously, they get back together and the rest of the book is filed with banter about how Anastasia has cured Christian of his BDSM problem. I hadn't realized that this was a curable problem--maybe I should visit a doctor. Then as they're enjoying their "normal" relationship, Christian's former submissive shows up and tries to get rid of Anastasia. I truly hate how all of the people who are into the BDSM lifestyle are portrayed as mentally unstable or sick.
I read this on my Kindle, so I can't be too much help with the design of the print version.
I hated it. Sadly though, I'm going to read the next book just for review purposes and the fact that I can't leave series unread. Wish me luck!
I have nothing positive to say about this book. It was boring.
