It seems negative reviews are catching up to those positive ones for Fifty Shades of Grey and those leaving those reviews are not delicate in expressing their opinions. In fact many of the reviews are claimed to be better writing than what is found in the book.
"Then there's the writing. If you take out the parts where the female character is blushing or chewing her lips, the book will be down to about 50 pages."
"And oh, the repetition...and the repetition...and the repetition. I'm convinced the author has a computer macro that she hits to insert one of her limited repertoire of facial expressions whenever she needs one. According to my Kindle search function, characters roll their eyes 41 times, Ana bites her lip 35 times, Christian's lips "quirk up" 16 times, Christian "cocks his head to one side" 17 times, characters "purse" their lips 15 times, and characters raise their eyebrows a whopping 50 times. Add to that 80 references to Ana's anthropomorphic "subconscious" (which also rolls its eyes and purses its lips, by the way), 58 references to Ana's "inner goddess," and 92 repetitions of Ana saying some form of "oh crap" (which, depending on the severity of the circumstances, can be intensified to "holy crap," "double crap," or the ultimate "triple crap"). And this is only part one of a trilo"
The book labeled as fan fiction inspired by Stephanie Meyers "Twilight" series and as "mommy porn" seems to be acquiring a new label these days; it's called "crap." Whats even worse is the comments below these negative reviews are for the most part filled with fellow readers agreeing. Readers who did not leave official reviews. Imagine what that negative number would be if they had? I'm thinking E.L. better keep those fingers crossed or face turning those 7 shades of crimson herself!
Speaking of turning crimson, it seems our "Bella" actress Kristen Stewart is bearing those 7 shades of crimson these days. Poor Kristen was caught in a make out session with her director Rupert Sanders of the film Snow White and the Huntsman and dear Robert is turning 7 shades of angry fire burning bright crimson (yeah made that up) over it.

Robert Pattinson was just about to propose to his gal within a few weeks when the cheating came to light. He moved out of their shared home two days later and refuses to speak to her. He is however wanting to speak with Rupert. As for Kristen Stewart, she's apologized and I believe she is genuinely sorry.

As of now, time will only tell. Oh the woes of love...
As for Rupert Sanders, he's apologized too, but has a lot of groveling to do I'm sure before he gains his wife's forgiveness, who by the way could only respond with a single tweet of "wow" just hours before the scandal hit tabloids.
What do I think about this whole drama?
I do agree, it was a poor lapse of judgement for the two, but it is something forgivable. Mistakes after all do happen and do teach us something. We are human and hopefully Kristen appreciates more what she's got ... or for now what she had...
Good luck you two!
As for E.L. James I mean no offense and do congratulate her on her sucess. It is a very hard thing to put pen to paper (or fingertips to keyboard) and write out a story and not every story is loved by everyone.
Thanks for dropping by!
