My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Silly and dull
Given what I’d heard about this book I expected it to be poorly written and salacious. I had never intended to read it for those reasons. But with the movie out this weekend, I can’t walk two feet without having this book in my face. I decided I needed to read it, so I would truly know what all the fuss was about. What surprised me was how boring it was. There was no plot and the dialogue was silly. Also, with all the talk about this book, I expected it to be sexy to the point of scandalous. I didn’t find it sexy at all and certainly not romantic. When all is said and done, it’s not the subject matter that I find offensive. It’s the bad writing.
