Day 8 – 30 Day Book Challenge

Just because a book is a bestseller doesn’t mean that it’s good. Although I have met El James, had her sign my copy that was given to me from a friend, there is nothing about these books that thrill me. I’m extra biased because I’m originally from Seattle and it’s obvious that her research was done online. She did finally make the trek out to Seattle last month, and for that I’m proud of her for doing so.

Poor writing and the constant repetition of words and phrases along with incorrect facts told me this book isn’t as great as everyone says it is. And yet, that’s part of its reputation now. People want to still read the books to know how dirty and horrible they are. Seriously folks, it’s not truly worth your reading time.

  1. Amen to that! I’ve read the first two and am on the third. They only get worse. I’m just reading them so I have the right to give them the reviews they deserve. I totally agree with you. What research she did, which was little, clearly only came from the Internet, and yet she seems ignorant of computers. Ana doesn’t have an email address? Really? Ugh.

    • I think it’s totally unrealistic that a college student wouldn’t even have their own computer. Especially an English major! The more I try to read, the more I feel like bashing my head against a brick wall! Thanks for your comment! It’s nice to know I’m not alone in my dislike. =)
