Please tell me the book isn't as sappy as all these quotes and that they really did pick the worst ones. Ugh.

LOL @ one of the comments "Sounds like she has diarrhea in a few of those."

The series started out as Twilight fan fiction.

That is really all that needs to be said.

Save yourself a lot of eye rolling and just read this instead.

ok there are two glaring problems with the above passage:

1. anastasia feels that mrs. robinson, the old bitch christian used to bone, is a bigger threat than leila, his ex-sub, WHO HAS A GUN.

2. anastasia throws out that leila has crap taste in music after she mentions leila HAS A GUN. the sentence should have been : And theres leila- with her crap taste in music on his ipod- WHO HAS A FUCKING GUN AND WANTS TO KILL ME. AHHH! I GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE! I BETTER TAKE THESE BUTT PLUGS OUT! The End.

There's a web site listing the top 14 "erotic" passages in the book and I wasn't impressed. And now I can't find the link.

Here's Ellen reading some of it. Sort of.

So - people were giving this to their mothers for Mothers Day? That's..wow.

A 60 year old work friend was just telling me how much she was LOVING this book and that I just have to read it. I'm feeling retroactively awkward.

I am ashamed to say I read this. Absolutely AWFUL - definitely NOT my taste in terms of writing. Sappy and ridiculous.

I had a flight attendant and the woman next to me reading this- I was like, what is the deal?

The flight attendant was like, "Yeah, this book makes me blush a little" and then recommended I read the Hunger Games...

Like THAT's EVER GOING TO HAPPEN!
