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.

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!

Was hoping to have a good laugh, as I had read all the other reviews, but it never happened. I'm not a prude by any means but I couldn't even bring myself to finish half of it. Just didn't find it funny at all.

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.

I don't know why or what possessed me to get this? I tried to have an open mind when reading it, but in my opinion was horrible.
I don't think I even laughed once and I really cannot understand how it even got some good reviews? I am not into sick humor so guess it was my own mistake. Needless to say it is deleted from my kindle, I could have handled something with a little tact but this lacked that in spades. I loved Fifty Shades and this really degraded that book.
This is my first bad review ever.

It is one thing to be witty and funny, even satirical, but plain stupid is another thing. Bad book overall. The only bit worth reading is the "beige" part and the name "Anis Thesia" then it all came apart.
