5.0 out of 5 stars Haven't laughed this hard in ages, July 10, 2012
This review is from: Fifty Shames of Earl Grey: A Parody (Kindle Edition)
I honestly can't remember the last time a book made me laugh this hard or this often. I made the mistake of settling in to read this with a snack and drink at hand. Bad idea. Nearly choked to death twice and had to make a mad dash to the sink more than once to spit out a mouthful of water. I used to read a lot of comedy but I stopped because I found that all too often there'd be a funny patch here or there and the rest of the book would drag in comparison. That's not the case with 50 Shames. Each time I finished wiping the tears from my eyes, thinking "surely that must have been the funniest scene", another bit came along that had me doubled over in fresh fits of giggles. Whether you love the actual 50 Shades of Grey series, or hate it, or find yourself inexplicably torn between the two reactions, you won't be able to make it through this book without laughing. Clever. Outrageous. Hilarious. Do yourself a favor, brew a cup of Earl Grey (for effect) and read this book. Just make sure to keep the cup of tea out of reach so you're not tempted to try to drink and read at the same time. Trust me, with this book that won't work.
