Book Description

While all the parody books for Fifty Shades have long passed into oblivion, this one still ranks on the best seller list week after week. For good reason. It's hilarious. Reid Mockery was the first to tap into the unlimited humor potential of EL James' books. To prove his talent is no fluke, Mockery released a sequel that was just as funny and a third that fittingly concludes the trilogy.

If there was ever a book worthy of a parody, it's Fifty Shades of Grey. In Book One the laughs come hard and frequent. (No pun intended) If you read the real book, you will be delighted with this light hearted alternate version.

The lead character is Annis Thesia. She's not that great looking, terribly naive and has fallen hard for Bobby Beige, Pittsburg's most eligible billionaire. The comic sexual exploits of this bizarre relationship will keep you going as you dive into the wild world of kinky sex with two total idiots.

Unlike others, this parody stands on it’s own as a quick-reading fun little romp. While based on the best-selling trilogy, it has it’s own unique wickedness, sense of humor and dialogue. It doesn't matter if you loved or hated the original Fifty Shades books, this work will amuse you and you won't have to think very hard.

Warning: It does contain some foul language and very weird acts not meant for normal people. This is seriously messed up while being very, very funny. As a full 35,000 word mini-novel, you get your money's worth and it may actually make you murmur.

The reviews are mixed almost exactly like the real books. Lotsa love. Lotsa hate. But, more often than not, this book has people who love parodies laughing out loud and reading passages to their friends. So, take some time and dive in to the crazy world of Annis and Bobby Beige.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifty Shades of Grey... I mean Beige! May 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hell yeah! July 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny! Many a laugh to be had! June 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique read and good for a laugh! July 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was able to read this on my Kindle for free through Prime and I was pleasantly surprised. After reading reviews of the real Fifty Shades series it seemed that you either loved it or hated it. While I wasn't willing to pay $10 per book to find out, I thought this was a good alternative and might even get a laugh out of it.
I, unlike other reviewers, had not read the originals (aside from a 2 chapter sample from the first book) and was not expecting for this to be a continuation of them in any way. It is a parody and you need to treat it as such. This book did seem to follow a similar story as the original ,but (of course, being a parody) the characters were obnoxious and the story was at times raunchy. With that being said, you can't help but like the characters and their quirks.
I would recommend this book to anyone that can take a joke. The author's introduction sums it up best as to what to expect. If you don't have a sense of humor or are going to be comparing this book to the real Fifty Shades maybe this isn't for you. For everyone else, read away!

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS!! Would highly recommend. July 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the Fifty Shades Trilogy I was left feeling that the book was brilliantly written, but that certain things were just begging to be laughed at! I loved your book, I thought it was screamingly funny (eye crossing being my favorite)...the weird room downstairs was just completely over the top, I don't find it disturbing in the least, it's too bizarre to be taken seriously at all, very very funny. Good job sir. Or ma'am!

What can I say. This was absolutely terrible. While it was a mockery of Shade of Gray, it was bad from start to finish with not much to create any desire to read in one night.

More About the Author

Reid Mockery has done it again. He has hit number one on the best selling parody list with Detergent: A Divergent Parody. As proved by his selling power and good reviews, no one writes parodies like Reid. It takes a special gift to be this stupid, and Reid has it by the boatload.

The best selling Divergent series by Versonica Roth finally gets the parody treatment in the form of Beverly (Vurl) Cryer, the female protagonist who must make a choice!

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 was 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!"
