I've been sucked in by the literary phenomenon that is Fifty Shades. I had no idea what it was about, but after the first chapter when it's nothing more than girl meets boy I was hooked. It is, for want of a better term, an erotic book. Reviews have dubbed it 'mummy porn'. The story follows an inexperienced girl and a control freak bloke who is totally broken, mentally. For those of you who want to read them I'll stop there. But it is proper kinky stuff. I thought I would be completely embarrassed, but surprisingly I wasn't. I was totally hooked though, it only took me a week to rinse all three (I know people who've read it in less, too). The psychology is just wonderful, you start to feel hungry for answers, why is he like this. As soon as I'd read the first book I was hyper trying to get my hands on the second one. I marched around the city to four different stores and only in the fifth did I get hold of 'Darker' and 'Freed'. The books are selling out, absolutely everywhere. Definitely worth a read.
Now, the internet is a buzz with rumours of a movie. Most links and online discussions lead to nothing but wishlists of who wants which actors to play the leading roles. If I were to take part, I'd back Alexander Skarsgard for Grey. But anyway, how could they make a movie about it? How lewd would it be? Unless they were to play on the story, the psychological push and pull. It isn't all about bedroom antics. There are a whole array of pyschos and scenes they could work with. It all seems quite unlikely at the moment though. I'd go and see it though! xoxo
