The fact of being labelled as a piece of bad written mom´s porn and having being the object of an aggressive marketing campaign has made the so-called erotic bestselling novel "Fifty Shades of Grey"a not at all appealing reading to me. If we add to this the countless reviews I have read lately about this trilogy, plot summaries and several quotes extracted from E.L.James book I conclude that this shade of grey is getting too dark and therefore I don´t fancy neither reading"Fifty Shades of Grey"nor having my ass kicked.
El hecho de que lo etiquetaran como "porno mal escrito para mamás" y haber sido objeto de una agresiva campaña de marketing hicieron desde el principio que mi interés por la novela erótica "Cincuenta Sombras" fuera escaso por no decir nulo. Si a eso añadimos las incontables críticas que he leído últimamente acerca de esta trilogía,sinopsis y varias citas extraídas del libro de E.L.James llego a la conclusión de que el gris se vuelve demasiado oscuro y de que tengo tantas ganas de leerlo como de que me den una patada en el culo.
Some reviews and opinions on this book:(please,click on the links for further reading)"The thought of a guy watching you do things in various outfits only after you ask his permission and regarding that as an act of “love” is not something helping us embrace earned trust, shared experiences, and happy, equally-balanced romantic partnerships".
"Shouldn’t “submission” be considered not simply a naughty word, but a corrosive one?"
Dr. Gina Barreca Professor of English and Feminist Theory University at the University of Connecticut
"By page 111 they are in bed together and she ‘bears the delicious brunt of his deft fingers’. Later she signs a contract to exercise, diet and be his ‘shaved and waxed’ submissive partner. Girls, it is as if feminism never happened! And before too long Anastasia is in his Red Room of Pain, a sado-masochistic lair where carefully choreographed punishments and humiliations are carried out on a regular basis. So far, so bad. For had this book been written by a man for men, it would have been derided and dismissed as thrill-seeking, anti-female, pornographic, sexist smut. Yet as it has been written for women by a woman, it has somehow been transmogrified into important literature, a vital step forward in female sexual emancipation and a kind of sex bible for the post-feminist age".

"Anti-Feminist Ideals in 5O Shades of Grey" Dangerous Myths perpetuated in this book about men and women:The Virgin vs. the Deviant ,A Woman’s Love Can Change Men, The Female Submissive by Marina Delvecchio, Writer and blogger
"For me what’s unsettling about this book is the manipulation, coercion and glamourised abuse of the young female protagonist, Ana, and the fact that women around the world can’t get enough of the bullying, controlling hero, Christian Grey.(...)
The clear imbalance of power between Ana and Christian, who is “like a man twice his age,” and his penchant for hurting women – which is hinted to stem from his own childhood abuse – sets up a coercive relationship. Christian pressures Ana to sign on to play Sub to his Dominant via a detailed contract, which would control every aspect of her life, both in and out, of the bedroom.
And forget simple role-playing fun with handcuffs and a feather. In one scene, to demonstrate her ‘love’ for Christian, Ana allows him to hit her as hard as he wants.
“I close my eyes bracing myself for the blow. It comes hard, snapping across my backside and the bite of the belt is everything I feared.”
Había pensado en retratar a Ama Sadie azotando a un Christian Grey disfrazado de odioso principito pero como estoy por la igualdad de género descarté enseguida esa idea y sustituí al chico por un objeto inanimado.
