I read all three books of 50 Shade of Grey. The first book was more than amateurish. James seemed to be stuck on one dialogue tag--murmured. And poor Anastasia only knew one way to move--clambering into bed, into the car, up the stair...
Book 2 was better written. So I guess the author learned something, but then Book 3 was so predictable I could have written it for her.
All that aside, the story is disturbing. I know emotional and verbal abuse. I've seen more than my share of abuse among those I love. This story glorifies that. The attached review hits the nail perfectly dead-center on the head.
I had thought to go see this with my daughter--NO! She has enough on her plate than to make an abusive relationship the norm. Too many young girl will embrace this as okay. I will not be one to encourage it.
