Don’t deny it — at least one million of us have read EL James first book of the Grey trilogy as Amazon just announced this week that Kindle books have sold 1 million copies — so, what did you think?
Was Anastasia the heroine you imagined? Did she compliment our hero, Christian? Did you see any similarities between these characters and TWILIGHT’S H/H? Did you recognize a correlation between Stephanie Meyer’s story and EL James as ***fan fic?
One reason I’m glad I read the book is because everyone is talking about it! Friends of mine that are complete literary snobs want to discuss the 50 Shades virtues *wink*
I like to read different types of stories which is why this genre is so much fun! Within the romance category I can get my fill of erotic books, paranormal, contemporary and more —- so did I immediately read more erotic after the tantalizing Grey series?
Did you? or are you like me and love to read it all?
One thing I will say, the sexier the better! You?
***Fan fiction (alternatively referred to as fanfiction, fanfic, FF, or fic) is a broadly-defined term for fan labor regarding stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creator. Works of fan fiction are rarely commissioned or authorized by the original work’s owner, creator, or publisher; also, they are almost never professionally published. Because of this, many fan fictions written often contain a disclaimer stating that the creator of the work owns none of the characters. Fan fiction, therefore, is defined by being both related to its subject’s canonical fictional universe and simultaneously existing outside the canon of that universe. Most fan fiction writers assume that their work is read primarily by other fans, and therefore tend to presume that their readers have knowledge of the canon universe (created by a professional writer) in which their works are based.
