Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)

Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James I'm rating it because I read it as a fan fiction. I thought it was terribly written then and I have heard nothing has changed but the names. The characters are based off of Bella and Edward. There are many similarities. The author can't write. Period. Hello, ellipsis over-usage. British-speak when the characters live in Seattle. Bad and uninspired sex scenes. Horrible portrayals of the BDSM lifestyle. To see that this book is now being published by Random House is nothing short of disgusting and for the time being, I have lost faith in the entire publishing industry. It's plagiarism of another author's characters and it's unethical. How they get away with this, I will never understand. Don't pay for this. You can get it for free off the internet. Save your money and buy something that's worth reading and has substance. UGH. Shame on you, RH.EDIT: What I should have said is copyright infringement, not plagiarism. I know it does not come under plagiarism law. But it does fall under a derivative work of Twilight, which is copyright infringement.

If there was ever a proper sign of the apocalypse, this is it. Not to mention I will never believe another thing Time magazine says. The businesses I support are dropping like flies!
