It is all I hear about! Fifty Shades of Grey! Everywhere I go women are talking about it. The other day I treated myself to a pedicure, a place where I like to sit quietly, relax and read my book. Impossible! The other three women could not stop talking about Christian Grey. Clearly I was not going to get any reading done so I sat back, closed my eyes and listened. Personally I think there should be a sign on the wall titled Proper Pedicure Etiquette and number one on the list would be PLEASE TALK QUIETLY, but that is a whole other story!
These woman were in love with Fifty Shades, or perhaps they were in love with Grey himself! Apparently he was gorgeous, charming, hot! They couldn’t put the books down. They were addicting, erotic, magical, riveting, suspenseful and even romantic. They even described it as a study in human behavior.
Is this the same book that my fellow book club friend described as trash, porn, boring, stupid and poorly written? One day I decide to read it, the next say NO Way! I am fickled! What should I do. Should I download it on my kindle where it will be accessible to my 28-year-old daughter, my son’s 26-year-old girlfriend and my 80+ year old mother? Help me decide!
