    I'm just curious on peoples thoughts on the book if they've read it. They are making it into a film. Any ideas on who you want to play Grey hahicon_lol.gif

    Well I haven't gotten too far into it, im on page 85 of 514. It just doesn't keep me running back to it for some reason. But I sure will finish it.

    Stupidest comment ever. How does one differentiate between gay lit and straight lit and why should I care? I read what I want, although 50 shades of piss did not sound interesting to me at all. Gay lit? I think I'll pass on that.

    Is the book any different from the hundreds of cheaply-penned sex pulp novels published in the '60s that were just thinly-veiled pornography?

    Because if it isn't, then the whole bondage/forbidden sex/swingin' suburbs thang has been done before.

    It's the most horrifically patched together Twilight wannabe to have ever demolished the art of literature.

    Supposedy Matt Bomer wants to play Christian Grey, but then Patrick Ellis Easton (American Psycho author) who was on the wrting team) threw a hissy-fit over that.

    Anyone know the latest on that situation?

    I tried but it was one of the stupidest books ever. Only got thru 100 pages and had to quit. Definitely mommy porn.

    I have read all three of them. I did find them poorly written, but an amusing form of trashy entertainment. I couldn't help but picture an American Psycho Christian Bale.tumblr_lanikpJutT1qbmcw0o1_500.jpg
