It’s not that it’s plotless fucking.
It’s that it’s poorly written plotless fucking. All you are doing by buying it is encouraging E.L.James to write more plotless fucking. You can get that free off the internet.You are only cheating yourself
People are just buying it out of curiousity, it’s the Da Vinci code all over again. Look, just because something is controversial, doesn’t mean it’s good. It just means the writer is a clever bastard who knows how to make a shed-load of money because they’ll get an arseload of free publicity due to the perceived controversial nature of it. It’s like when a film wins 11 Oscars. Doesn’t mean it’s actually good. Titanic is one of the worst films I have ever made myself watch, and that won ALL the awards when that came out.
So my point is, if you want porn, google it. Don’t piss around with this ‘erotic fiction’ nonsense. And it’s clogging up the bestsellers list. Lastly, it’s fuelling all this bull-shit debate about how people are more sexually liberated because this magical book exists and now people are reading it in public or something. Because there has litterally never been anything like this before. But there has, it’s called Mills and Boon. They’ve been going for bloody ages. And there’s a whole section in Waterstones dedicated to wank-material. And Twilight, which is some weird religiously repressed version of Mills and Boon. And no, people stil go all awkward and giggley when sex gets mentioned so that debate just, non-existant.
Right, anyway. My main reason is that it’s clogging up the best sellers lists.
