2.0 out of 5 stars awful writing, March 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades, Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I read the first book and kind of liked the storyline and i wanted to know what happened next. The writing is very weak and the author should have perhaps taken a little more time to not use the same phrases over and over again. I find myself skimming the sex scenes because they are so boring and repetitive. I find Ana less likable in this book as she is so immature. I started reading these books because of the reviews on the Today Show where the women my age (late 30s) said it was so good and gave them a lot to talk about. I would like more story and less sex. I suppose to a 20 year old sex is the answer to everything but those of us with a little real life under our belts along with kids and real problems recognize there is so much more than that to a real relationship. Plus honestly, even when I was 20 I wanted the love and communicating along with the sex and didn't want sex 10 times a day). I am way more annoyed with this book than the first and I will not be buying the 3rd.

I totally agree, with this review. I am SO disappointed I bought the second book. It is the same ol same ol. Sex a million times a day, Anna and Christians "witty banter" back and forth and the SAME boring ass arguments about everything. Just take the car moron. Stop the bickering.

I'm in 100% agreement. This series is poorly written, has bad character development and is simply a BORE. What's the fuss about??

As a woman in my late 30s, I totally agree with your comments. I just finished reading the first book and even with that one, I found myself skimming the sex scenes. It doesn't sound as intriguing after you read about it every few pages. It was like, you wake up and have sex, you eat breakfast and then have more sex ... Not even counting the omission of some obvious facts about "real life sex". A real woman knows that it is impossible to have sex that many times and then have the ability to go around without your underwear/no shower. I got the impression that the author was just using the sex scene to fill up the pages.

no, the author is absolutely positively NOT using the sex scenes to fill up the pages.

the author is absolutely positively using the sex scenes to fill up her bank account.
