So I’ve been caught up in the firestorm of 50 shades of grey. I just finished the first book yesterday and I have to say I’m mildly impressed. Granted most of the people reading this seem to feel this book is geared towards a hetero-centric lifestyle. However I disagree. (Sasha if you haven’t read it, go. Run. Buy it. )
I had a friend who asked me why I even wanted to read it. I told her that everyone enjoys a little porn, thinking that was it. I was wrong. Very wrong. Porn or no porn the book has characters that can be identified with. Both male and female. For myself I identify with the male character. Definitely a Christian Grey. Except I’m not a richer-than-God bastard.
As for the female character, if this was a lesbian book she’d be a femme. Although I’m not entirely sure what kind. I’m in love with the first book and eager to see where the second one goes.
Please don’t be put off by the fact that it’s a male and female main character. Or that its hetero-centric. Or anything else. The fad is actually worth getting caught up in.
