The amount of pain I can tolerate on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 is “none” and 5 is “listening to anything by Fergie or the Black-Eyed Peas,” is:

You have to read this book, it's friggin hilarious.
I eye him suspiciously. “You’re a strange man, Mr. Grey.”
“You have no idea,” he says, finishing his banana off.

This is one of the funniest books i've read, ever! If you asked me to choose favorite quotes, i would have to throw the entire thing at you. There is one of the scenes i truly love, and that is the end with the Count..

READ THIS!!!! READ IT!!! ( )

I initially had high hopes for this book but I got dissapointeds by it to be honest ( )

I didn't read 50 Shades of Grey but couldn't resist reading this parody. This was a fast, humorous read poking fun at the craziness of the original book.

I did find both characters to be extremely entertaining; Anna with her air-head simplicity and Earl Grey in his role as uber Alpha Male (for Pete's sake he drains the Pacific Ocean to save his Anna!)

Yes all the characters were completely undefined and one dimensional but they were fun. You don't read this book looking for a comparison piece to one of the greats like War and Peace or Anna Karenina. You read it because you have some spare time on your hands and need a bit of a laugh. ( )

Anna Steal, ladies and gents.

Review to come.

In the meantime, check out this book trailer aka "short film", if you haven't already. ( )

I figured I'd give it a try. Read a lot of reviews about how funny it was.I guess maybe I'm just not into parodies. Found it to be gross and rather annoying. ( )
