Where is this I want some plz on 04 Apr at 7: LeFlamel just won everything. LeFlamel on 04 Apr at I would much appreciate any input on this or that site.
I stopped after the first book, not because the series broke me, but because there was really nothing left to write about. Harry Potter sold million. This one is simple. It follows the Twilight model. Twilight, which has sold about million copies, is also incredibly popular despite being incredibly shitty.
It found its niche by creating a bland, characterless heroine so readers could insert themselves into the story, added an incredibly handsome idealistic man with a dark side!
Fifty Shades of Grey is Twilight fan fiction, and it had a built-in audience of every sexually frustrated fan of the Twilight series who desperately wanted Bella and Edward to just take their clothes off and fuck.
The last reason is due to, in part, self-fulfilling prophecy. At a certain point, something is so popular that everyone keeps hearing about it. This causes other people to go out and purchase it.
Regardless of whether these individuals enjoy it, it keeps up sales, which keeps it at the top of the bestseller lists, which keeps it in the public consciousness, which drives more sales.
I personally kept hearing people blather on about Fifty Shades of Grey until I finally I went out and bought a copy to see what all the fuss was about. Go check out all the 1-star reviews on Amazon that talk about how they decided to buy it due to all the hype only to discover it was a poorly written crock of shit.
Plagiarism This book is fanfiction, and therefore plagiarism. Nothing would make me happier than to see E. James and company be hit with a huge multi-million dollar lawsuit for ripping off the Twilight series.
James is profiting off the work of another writer. Sure, the book is no longer explicitly about Edward Cullen and Bella Swan having kinky vampire sex, but the characters are essentially the same. This story came into life as Twilight fanfiction.
I wanted to find out exactly how different the two stories were, and happily, someone had already done the work for me. They ran the two manuscripts through several comparison engines. E L James, you are a disgusting sack of shit. The Length Much of the criticism leveled against the Twilight series is that nothing ever fucking happens.
And, despite there being absolutely no plot whatsoever, the series is excruciatingly long. The Repetition Unsurprisingly for someone who has only ever written fan fiction, James is a terrible writer. In a series that is already incredibly repetitive, James feels the need to describe things the exact same way every fucking time.
Unfortunately, this inner goddess nonsense is used times throughout this series. One hundred and fifty fucking times. Still, maybe some readers found the repetition of the inner goddess parts to be amusing. For example, throughout the first couple of books Christian and Ana use condoms.
Nothing wrong with safe sex, right? Now, a discerning reader might ask why she needs to describe the condoms at all? The reason is simple: Christian and Ana, to a much lesser extent are very fond of murmuring, doing it an astonishing times throughout this literary abortion. They also whisper times, which is not a typo.
Lastly, some special mention should be made of the title. However, if she intends to write a book about them, I do expect her to do her bloody homework, and if not her, perhaps her editors? If there were any? A close second would be ringing someone, rather than calling them.
Much like Twilight, only the minor characters are remotely interesting. Almost everyone else can be summed up the following way: They do not do much and could be excised entirely without changing the plot in any significant way.
Anastasia Steele Ana is bland, uninteresting, nondescript, has no quirks or interesting personality traits or really anything about her that makes her even remotely interesting.
