Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James No star here because I could not even get past 7%. The writing was horrid, the dialogue insipid and the characters one dimensional.I think I would rather have a root canal than read this book.To play the Devil's Advocate, some people like this book, so perhaps you might like it, but I could not finish it.What bothers me the most is that "normal" folks will think this book is the standard quality of erotica.
