I’ll certainly liveblog it over on my personal blog, but I probably won’t go more in-depth than that.
Also, Ana knows stuff she shouldn’t know. Of course, Grey’s smiles are “sly” or “dark”, because he’s going all, “in my pants/torture dungeon” after every sentence. But Ana can’t know that. To Ana, it should be a regular smile, or perhaps occasionally an inappropriate smile. It’s like Twilight. Even if you didn’t know the premise, the fact that Edward is a vampire is just unbelievable obvious. And so is Christian’s dark hobby.
I haven’t read How Not to Write a Novel, but it sounds like the kind of thing I’d like.
Perhaps Ana is special, after all: she has a preternatural awareness of other people’s thoughts. Unfortunately, she only gets through just enough of the telepathic fog to have a bare inkling of what’s going on—certainly not enough to keep her out of danger.
I am not interested in any character whose author defines them only by how their significant other or romantic interest perceives and interacts with them.
A person is more than who they date and how that person sees them. To define someone that way is to take a limited and unhealthy point of view.
Christian Grey eats. Vampires do not eat. Therefore, using E.L. James logic, Christian Grey must be a totally different character from Edward Cullen.
Also: I hate to say positive things about Fifty Shades of Grey, but it is kind of nice that E.L. acknowledges that body image issues are a problem for some people. There are so many more protagonists who are okay with how they look than there are real people.
Lovely! Talk about a Mary Sue.
I’d gag you, but given the BDSM context of the book, people might talk.
I don’t know how you remember all of these details from the Twilight books. I read them what feels like forever ago. I might need to read them again.
I’m sorry about your mom. I hope she has some redeeming qualities.
That would certainly be consistent with the rest of the laziness in the book.
Dude, I know.
I think we can all agree that E.L. James is not a very good writer, no matter what the context.
