Not me. I wonder if I should see it when it comes out in theater, though.....not that I have a huge interest in it, but meh.

EDIT/UPDATE
Actually, if I'm ever going to read the book, I would want an audio-book variation, narrated by none other than this man:

I helped you a little bit with it, use [url ] and [/url ] tags next time it should be be all right next time as the CR forums do not automatically parse links :)

As for the book, since it's nowhere near my interst in literature (Fantasy, History and Science Fiction) this is one I'll skip regardless of the hype

No, I haven't read it and I'm not going to. I have read part of it. I found the writing style and the story just don't interest me.

My friend made me read the first one, I surprisingly found it good but have no intention to read the other books.

no, since there are more satisfying BDSM-themed books out there by exceptional authors.

Yes, and it's really poorly written and normalizes a very unhealthy and borderline abusive relationship... which is a problem.

What do I look like to you!? Of course I haven't read... all of it.
I have read excerpt though and oh god is it bad. -I- could write better erotica than that! It's laughable! It's a joke! It's... It's...

Well, It's not very good, really.



At all.

Nothing more than fap material for masochistic women. I don't think people give it enough credit, because the whole point of the book wasn't to sell the idea of a real consensual BDSM relationship, it was to sell the idea of a BDSM fantasy, no different than the Rapelay. As a pornographic novel, it wasn't all that good. As a mainstream romance book? It utterly fails.

It is a BDSM fantasy, it wasn't to portrayed a consensual BDSM relationship, you can't fap to that, what gets people going is this idea of near sex slavery. If it portrayed a healthy relationship, then it fails as a BDSM fantasy.

Yes, and it was terrible. Don't even look in its direction.

Didn't enjoy it.

Lackluster at best
