Fifty Shades...

I've recently been reading the Fifty Shades of Grey novel, classed as 'mummy porn', which I can't quite understand, but I suppose, as a mainstream book, it is 'interesting', even though it's badly written.  With better editing and less repetitive prose it would have been a 5* book, but sadly, too much eye-rolling and lip-biting became irritating after the first couple of offences.

I would consider it titillating and light hearted fun but most certainly not a literary classic.  However, I am a huge fan of an amazing author from America.  Phil Torcivia has had many ebooks published - available on Amazon for the Kindle - and writes an engaging and entertaining blog.  He is currently writing his own version of the Fifty Shades trilogy - Fifty Shades of Silver Hair and Socks - a little tongue in cheek but a far better read.

Find the time to visit his blog and catch up on the daily excerpts, it brightens my mornings and I'm sure you will enjoy it just as much.

  1. Couldn't agree more with what you said about 50 Shades... I was a little disappointed. D.S.
