  • A Guy's Secret Guide to Fifty Shades of Grey on June 24, 2012
    (no rating)
    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.
