Fifty Shades of Grey


Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James
Date Finished: July 2012
Pages: 514

With the hype of this book increasing I decided to give it a go. To be honest I don’t understand what all the fuss is about – ok so maybe the sex scenes excite you. However in my honest opinion the writing was quite bad and plot was average and predictable – nothing really happened. I wouldn’t usually say so much negative comments about a book but with its popularity I couldn’t help but analyse it more. I have yet to read the sequels and am in no hurry to, unless someone can tell me they get better and until then there are plenty of fabulous books out there to keep me busy!

A rather generous 3.5 stars…

Fifty Shades of Silver Hair and Socks

ImageFifty Shades of Silver Hair and Socks by Phil Torcivia

Date finished: 15/8/12 57 pages

Ginger > After reading Fifty Shades of Grey, I then came across this ebook which at the time was free to download at Amazon. As the title attracted me with its comical take on the original book, and with its lack of pages I read this ebook within an hour one morning. I enjoyed this book more than the original (don’t shoot). It’s humour and slightly erotic scenes make it a fun read for any woman. It appears to be a spoof but has its own comical story to tell and you do not have to have read Fifty Shades of Grey to enjoy Phil Torcivia’s little delight.

Now off to find more books by Phil 🙂


Hey guys Specs here! > So I decided to give this short 57 page ebook a shot on the recommendation of Ginger, and may I say that it is well worth a read. Even though the book is a parody of Fifty Shades of Grey, it has enough of a story to work well as a stand alone series. The book itself does make several references to the orginal but even though I have not read the actual book, the references still have a wealth of comedy value. The raunchy scenes are described well and again have a heavy comical underlay.

As such I award this raunchy & funny ebook…
