Awsome book. I heard them discussing this book on a morning radio show. There is lots of sexual content which usually I would not read but the underlying story is very good. And the other content I have to say was definately a plus ;)

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

My husband and I started reading this together. The hype had me believing it was a well written saucy novel. I literally could not handle it, and we never finished it. The writing was really awful. I didn't even get to the real bulk of the content because the writing was so green and choppy that I felt like a 12 year old was writing it. I can handle bad content much better than poorly written content!

What did everyone think of the whole trilogy? After all the hype that was around it when it released, I must say that myself and all my friends that read it were highly disappointed. Nevermind the fact that the lady that wrote it has no business in the industry. I've heard some of her interviews...not read them, watched them live...and even if I did like the books, I would have thrown them out immediately. Lucky for me I didn't have to pay for them.

all i have to say is i've read all three in the series and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THEM!!!!! yes they are filled with sexual content but it is an amazing story around all the sex. i bought all three and had each done in a couple days. couldn't put them down!!! i definitely suggest it a must read and they're coming out with a movie of it.

All you have to write is the title lol I love love love these books and am soo looking forward to the movie. I jjust started getting back into reading and this was my first book for years. I have a hard time concentrating on anything I read, but this was an execption lol I read the trilogy in a few weeks which is fast for me Im a slow reader. But I loved how it was written, right from a womans view and just how she viewed things and her thoughts, just was so similar to how I think. I wouldnt normally read something so sexual either, but I have to say I would read this over and over again. There was soo much stuff going on at once though it kida threw me back, I wanted it to be more reality than something that probably wouldnt happen in that little of time. But they were things that could def. happen to people which I liked it wasnt soo outrageous. I am def. going to buy these and re-read these many times lol I was so sad to finish them

I have not yet read 50... nor The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I read The Hunger Games before it was really popular. I read Harry Potter because someone gave it to me-the first four books all at once. I know sometimes the hype can be a bit much, but The Hunger Games is a fantastic series, and I really enjoyed Harry Potter, too. I am hoping to read those again when my son is older.

I hear it is very sexual. I actually hadn't really heard of it, but I read your post and then found out my sister in law is reading it! Imagine that!

Hmmm - not sure if this is something I would be interested in or not. Will have to check it out. Thanks Mandi!

Mandi,
Who is the author? Thanks for the recommendation. If you think the group would benefit, post a suggestion in the May 2012 Time to Choose thread.
