Actually, I've changed my mind. If E.L James wants to make a fool of herself and her fans by pasting 10,000s of words across a new trilogy that's basically the same books, while occasionally adding some new dialogue of the calibre of:

 

“I forgo the Cristal and the Dom Pérignon for a Bollinger, mostly because it’s the 1999 vintage, and chilled, but also because it’s pink.”

 

Along with some thrilling chapters on the minutiae of business meetings:

 

“Just over an hour later, I’m winding up my meeting with the Savannah Brownfield Redevelopment Authority. Georgia has a great deal to offer, and the team has promised GEH some serious tax incentives.”

 

Then she's entirely welcome to.Cat Tongue

Did you read the book? I haven't read or seen either of them. I can usually sit through a movie once even if it's meh. I was thinking about watching it.

Which one, there are 3? Cat Happy I have not read the book.

 

I’m looking forward for the sequel -Fifty Shades Darker.

 

EDIT: Have you heard of the fifty shades abuse campaign? lol

Ramon, how do we know she wrote these new books herself? Would it not have been easier to hire a ghostwriter on Upwork for $3/hr?

But what writer could possibly replicate such riveting prose as this?

 

 

It’s been an interesting morning. We left Boeing Field at 11:30 PST; Stephan is flying with his first officer, Jill Beighley, and we’re due to arrive in Georgia at 19:30 EST

 

or this?

 

’Mr Grey?’ ‘I need some modelling glue.’ He pauses for a moment. ‘For what sort of model, sir?’ ‘A model glider.’ ‘Balsa wood or plastic?’ ‘Plastic.’ ‘I have some. I’ll bring it down now, sir.’ I thank him, a little stunned that he has modelling glue.”

Well, I find it kind of revulotionary... a prose that literally doesn't have any grotesque or horror element, to be so grotesque and disgusting. Isn't it?

Well, I find the whole thing weird. It's like a strange cult. Why this horrible character is adored by so many women is anyone's guess. How E.L James never got sued by Stephanie Mayer is equally odd.

Great stuff Christian, I've put you down as solved before the subversive pro-50 Shades element get a foothold Cat Frustrated
