It’s awful, but oh so addicting After surviving 50 Shades of Grey, and after taking a break for a few days from Ana and Christian’s tortured romance, I girded my loins and cracked open the second book of the trilogy, 50 Shades Darker.For those of you intrigued by the words “butt plug” or “fisting,” half of you will enjoy your lucky day, because one of those is kinda sorta featured in this book. As it is, the only fisting we ever see – ever come close to seeing – is that of Ana’s or Christian’s hands in the others’ hair. And that happens a lot. Not as often as Ana or Christian gasping, or Christian setting his lips in a hard line, or Ana biting her lip, or Ana coming undone, or Christian frowning. In fact, Christian’s frowning is such a “thing” that, when Ana frowns, another character observes that she’s turning into Christian.It’s just … WHERE THE HELL WAS THE EDITOR?But I digress.To dig too deeply into the spectacle that is 50 Shades of Grey is to approach Sisyphean…

And the award for the most unlikable lead character in a book goes to… Anastasia Steele! Oh my God, was she awful! “I want you…I can’t please you…I’ll never leave you…I can’t give you what you need…and on and on and ON!” Grow up! At one point in the book, she stated that she doesn’t understand why Christian likes her. You and me both, sister! And then there’s the sophomoric writing! It’s soooo repetitive…repetitive…repetitive! But wait! Just when you think the same phrase is going to be used, YET AGAIN, the author throws in some arbitrary word that causes you to have to use your Kindle dictionary and doesn’t fit in with any of the other elementary wording that takes place throughout the book. Who uses the word “avuncular” in everyday talk? Am I really supposed to believe that a word that advanced is coming from the same person who constantly refers to her female anatomy as “down there”? I’m rolling my eyes (which is quite ironic because that was a central theme in this book)! I haven’t even finished the book but after the marriage proposal, I…

Repetitive and redundant. Someone please give this author a thesaurus and an editing team that cares. It’s not just that the same actions are repeated over and over (and over… and over again), it’s that the same words are used to describe them every time. It’s like someone put 50 words in a bag, pulled them out and mashed them into a semblance of a sentence, then tossed them back in the bag and repeated the process to fill 300+ pages.Inspired by another review I actually used my Kindle to count the ones that were most painful/annoying to read:Lips bitten: 25Eyes widened: 21Eyes rolled: 51″oh my”: 45Scowls: 48Gasps: 62″jeez”: 76Smirks: 91Flushes/blushes: 133F-bombs dropped: 173Whispers: 251Do the math! Lips are bitten and eyes are widened in every chapter. Someone gasps once every six pages. The main character “flushes” at least once every three pages.Yes, the British author uses British colloquialisms that…
