Fifty Shades of Grey?
Anyone read this yet? I believe it is a trilogy. I thought vaguely it was about liberated sex for the over- fifties so out of curiosity and because our Book Club ladies were interested, I got a sample 50 pages or so on my Kindle. So far it reads like a teenage love-lit (or Barbara Cartland) written by a teenager, full of cliches and a flimsy improbable story. I am not motivated to read any more.... but what is it about? I suppose somewhere in the three volumes there is lots of steamy stuff because as we know, sex sells. But what is making it such a sell-out and talking point in several different countries. Anyone got an opinion?
