More About the Author

Reid Mockery is Amazon's number one selling parody author. Consistently funny, he has successfully mocked Fifty Shades, Divergent and now John Green's The Fault In Our Stars. His work has earned a loyal following and he rewards his readers with fast moving parodies, that are short, cheap and guaranteed to brighten your day. Granted, it takes a special gift to be this stupid, but Reid seems to have it by the boatload.

Reid doesn't exactly look like Austin Powers, but he often channels his inner spirit. This image captures what Reid is feeling, so let's leave it at that.

When Reid Mockery makes parodic fun of a book, it is the greatest compliment that book can ever obtain.

He doesn't drink bottled water often. But, when he does, it's from Walmart.

Reid Mockery is so sexy, women buy and read his books by the thousands, just so they can run their fingers down the screen and feel his thick E ink. His words are like poetry, if poetry were entertaining.

He lives an anonymous life in the state of Tennessee searching for the next genre of books to skewer with his wicked sense of humor. Although he has written other books, he is best known for this best-selling parodies that make fun of the best selling books. This ground-breaking work has catapulted Mockery to the top of the Amazon sales charts to which Reid responds, "Yeah, Baby. Yeah!"

Did I hit the wrong button on my computer when I bought Fifty Shades of Beige here as a low-priced Kindle edition, or was it that the idea of such a parody maybe being better than the original? It's impossible to miss all of the media hype surrounding the highly popular trilogy by E.L. James. Like many, I've been curious about what all the fuss is all about, especially when I hear of libraries in Florida, Georgia and Wisconsin either not stocking the books or pulling them from shelves, with many citing what they say is inappropriate and explicit content.

Regarding the original, a Random House spokesperson was quoted as saying: "Random House fervently opposes literary censorship and supports the First Amendment rights of readers to make their own reading choices." Can't say that I'm surprised, since as of this writing, Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy is holding the #1 spot books and Kindle editions here on Amazon, and at almost ten bucks a pop, that's a lot of cash coming in for both the published and for author E.L. James, a TV executive, wife and mother of two, who is based in London.

For those who don't know, protagonist Anastasia Steele meets Christian Grey at his corporate headquarters in Seattle, and their relationship could not be more lopsided. Anastasia is a recent college graduate and a virgin in all explanations of the term. Mr. Grey is a handsome, brooding billionaire, and he's so accomplished in the arts of domination and bondage that he asks Anastasia to sign a contract of servitude.

I snoozed my way through 50 shades of grey, I should have just stopped since even the sex scenes got boring and repetitive, I just thought at some point something redeaming would happen plot wize. I ordered 50 shades of beige and it's follow up 50 shades of marker and had to read them both twice because I couldnt believe how amazingly funny and clever they were. I shared scenes with my friend and we both literally cried with laughter. Some parts of this book i would say are "slow burners" You chuckle a bit when you first read them and then find you are still laughing when they pop into your mind randomly throughout the week. The only thing that threw me at first were the names of the characters as over the top cheesy, but upon second reading I really think they are brilliant and completely appropriate to the text. The sex scenes (the normal-ish ones) are comically more realistic than the original series. I mean, how many times can sex really be that mind blowing no matter who you are doing? I love Annis Thesia!!! My husband would like me to mention that although his name appears on this review it is actually Keri (his wife) writing it.

I know this is meant to be a parody but it more than borders on being ridiculous so much so that I couldn't make it through the first few chapters.

Shades of Grey was very worth satirizing, it's terribly written, and this supposed parody is even worse. It is not witty or pertinent. The first chapter was written with good purpose, but the writer clearly tired of the process, and tossed out a bad ending after a longdrawn and distasteful middle of filler. Not worth your time.

This is the most boring parady I have evr read. You'd think that 50 Shades of Grey would be the easiest book to slag...it's crying out for it but this is a feeble attempt. The orignal is funnier (and that's not funny at all).

A parody is one thing. A GOOD parody is another. This is the latter.

Consistently funny throughout, "Reid Mockery" has put together a near-perfect counterpart to Fifty Shades of Grey. It follows the plot of the original very closely, poking fun in all the right places. It also manages to poke fun at the characters and their motivations underscoring it. Time and again, I found myself thinking, `That IS what that character is like, and it IS ridiculous!'
In a way, I think I understand the Grey characters BETTER after having read this!

And it was one of the very few times I found myself actually laughing out loud while reading a book.

A very funny book, I look forward to reading Mockery's take on books two and three in the series! Many a laugh to be had!
