i was at work today and walked pas the tv with CNN on it where the headline said something like"50 Shades, a classic book". i laughed my ass off. Ether the CNN staff are idiots, are there are that many people in the US that don't know what real literature is. 50 shades is far from a classic. if that were the case, the porno "Pirates" is a classic action romance of 2005.
Its not that i hate the book, but its no classic. its more of a romantic comedy slash drama with hard core sex scenes in between. ive read fan fictions that have this quality of writing, hell, some even better. who the hell uses the phrase "oh my" about 78 times in one book. i understand its just lady porn, but I know plenty girls that would rather go find a guy to do that kind of stuff with rather then read about it. Even if they couldn't they would just watch a porno. at least soft core porn has more romance then sex, that's about level with 50 shades. i know I'm ranting but its just a me thing. smut is smut, don't try and defend it as a smart, intelligent book about self exploration cause its not. its a book about a half wit shy girl, a serious business man, and how they solve all there problems with his penis (thank you family guy).
I'm just saying call it what it is. now if you excuse me, I'm going to read all 3 copies of "Cocktails". there about these gay boys learning how to express themselves through sexual exploration and learning how to love again, its very deep.
