I received a copy of this in the April book giveaway. Thank you MN smile

However, I now understand why it was being given away.

If anybody would like the copy I recieved, please do PM me, I will happily banish it from my house forever send it on!

Did any of the other 49 lucky people enjoy it? I found it insultingly badly written, with very poorly drawn characters, and a plot line that was offensive to all the characters and the readers.

I am quietly impressed that it was published though, and quite taken aback by how popular it has been!

I got a free copy and am debating whether to give it to a charity shop or to put it into the dustbin.

I must admit I'm quite interested in seeing what all the fuss is about so if anybody has a copy they're keen to get rid of I'll gladly take it off your hands

oh my <bites lip>

TequilaMockinBird Wed 13-Jun-12 21:49:12

I'd quite like to know what all the fuss is about too, my fb is full of people raving about this book.

I'm happy to pay postage if somebody has a copy they're finished with. I'll happily pass on to another MNer after I've read it too.

You think you're bad, I was pissed one night and ended up BUYING it for my Kindle.blush I only realised half way thru the following day. That's the trouble with Kindles, it's only one bloody click to get something.

Am reading it obv, just to make sure it's as bad as it seems. grin

I am punishing myself we book 3. Maybe I
Like being punished. hmm. I am going to
Request mumsnet to have a biting lip emoticon (bites lip). Such a load of drivel.
But it's mindless stuff for when at 4 am baby cries and I need to feed and get back to sleep. blush.

I've just got to the bit where she's gone on The Pill.

Will miss all those foil packets he carries round.

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 13-Jun-12 22:08:36

read this instead. Tells you all about it but much better written (not difficult) and very VERY funny

EdSillyBand Wed 13-Jun-12 22:10:13

Oh I've just reserved this at the library as i want to see what all the fuss is about!

megabored Wed 13-Jun-12 22:12:58

Puppy monkey, he still seems to carry them in book 2. hmm

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Wed 13-Jun-12 22:13:49

You reserved porn in the library?! Youu are braver than I who only dared to read on Kindle so no-one knew

NotMostPeople Wed 13-Jun-12 22:15:35

I bought it on my kindle after a woman I meet dog walking accosted me and raved on about it for twenty minutes. I've read a couple of chapters and so far it reads like teenage nonsense I can't believe Mrs Dog Walker is so obsessed with it. Not sure if I can be bothered to read the rest.

Kaloobear Wed 13-Jun-12 22:16:39

Lip biting, oh my... Woah! Holy hell! Inner Goddess twirling, orgasms every time, bit of thrashing. Is it. Basically.

BellaBearisWideAwake Wed 13-Jun-12 22:23:05

read it for free if you must! (Except this is the twilight fanfiction so you have to put up with twilight names - all she did to publish was change the names)

megabored Wed 13-Jun-12 22:25:48

The sex is so boring that I am skipping over most of the book. I got mine from the library too. Glad I did not pay for this trash. This is the kid of stuff I may have loved to read just out of school. blush

Trills Wed 13-Jun-12 22:29:43

Someone's linked Cassandra Parkin already I see grin

I quite enjoyed it, but I like trash.

EdSillyBand Wed 13-Jun-12 22:38:13

TBF - I have braved borrowing titles at the library pertaining to binge eating, thinking of leaving my husband, baby led weaning and dog training!

I sold my soul to our local Library many moons ago!

maiziesmummy12 Thu 14-Jun-12 18:30:37

i would love the book but everwhere is sold out sad

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Thu 14-Jun-12 18:31:13

Do you have a kindle?

PlumpDogPillionaire Thu 14-Jun-12 18:32:48

Fifty Shades of Grey - really, really unbelievably crap. Makes Virginia Andrews look like George Sands.
