Thanks for saving me the trouble of reading Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm a woman and, surprise, surprise, stuck with you until the very last laugh. Thought that maybe for the guys - and us girls too discerning to read the real 'crap' - you could have given us a more detailed plot description of the sex scenes - after all, isn't that really the only thing the women are reading for?

As a writer myself, I'm still shocked at how well some very poorly written books can sell. Think Fifty Shades of Grey is the Twilight of the sexually repressed housewife.

Review by: Charity Breiner on June 19, 2012 :
It bothers me that people rate a book poorly because they didn't read the plot summary, and thus the book "wasn't what they thought it was about." the description sums it up perfectly. This short book is a lampoon of the first "50 Shades" books, that's the short and sweet description. And it's a pretty funny (dry humor/tongue in cheek) little piece of writing.

Review by: M H on May 12, 2012 :
Really funny! I read the real book, and he nailed some of the inadvertently humorous aspects if it. Jokes about the writing, the plot, self-help books, and men. Wicked good satire. My only criticism is it is too short. It's not a full length book, (I wish it was!) but it does say it's a "guide." A lot of laughs for a little price.

Review by: C J on May 10, 2012 :
Was hoping for a recap of the sex scenes with the high-level details in the middle. More like a couple sentences per chapter. "They talk, have sex, talk more, then go to the living room." Not even sure I could recall the overall story with this little detail.
