Fifty Shades of Grey book 1 - erotic fiction by Vintage Books - review by limitless

The characters sucked and the romance sucked, because frankly, there wasn't really any.

I didn't like this book for the characters or BDSM or the romance, or even the sex; only for the story. I can't recommend this, especially if you're new to erotica; this is not the kind of book you want your first experience to be. I don't recommend this to you even if you read a lot of erotica, either, because you probably won't be able to finish it. So I guess I don't recommend it to anyone.
Grey is intriguing; Mildly curious as to what happens in the next book; Witty email conversations
They fall in deep, desperate love in 2 weeks; Sounds like it was written by a 10-year-old

extremely useful review
Follow-up commentary
I'm still in the "meh" audience for this book. Haven't gone back to re-reading it, and doubt I ever will. But at least it looks pretty on my bookshelf!

    Simply outstanding!!! Your review blew me away! I am nominating you for the rumble because I can honestly say this is the best review I have read in months! If I had to list all the reasons, this comment would take too much space; I'll just say your writing is engaging and witty! How many people can say that about a book review? Brava!
