Personally, I hate it. That book is a disgrace to literature.

How about y'all?

I haven't read it, but isn't it supposed to be like an erotic fan-fiction of Twilight?

Haven't read it either, but this is exactly what I heard. It started as a fanfic and somehow got published... Although I feel like I've also heard that its supposed to be better? That wouldn't take much tho...

Pornography in a written format.

I'm not trying to pass judgement on it as I haven't read it but from what I've heard is contained within the book... Yeah it sounds rather distasteful to me :L

so? You don't have to read it. I don't get how you can hate a book if it doesn't affect you at all in any way

I didn't say I hated it? If your referring to VF's original post then I assume she has read it or else why bother making a thread about it :L

How can you say you don't like it unless you read it first? I haven't read it but I know some people that have and they seem to like it. It's obviously not my cup of tea but I can't say I hate it. Also just because it's of an adult nature makes it distasteful? Then wouldn't a lot of things be distasteful?

Edit: If there's no point in posting a thread about this if the OP hasnt read it then is there any point in commenting to agree with the OP in the thread if you haven't read it?

^This is a good point.

I think for me what throws me off and makes me hesitant to read it is that it started out as a fanfic of twilight. I have nothing against fanfics, but twilight is... well I didn't like it.

Does anyone know off the top of their heads if this book has appealed to a larger audience than twilight? Or is it mainly the same people reading it? Tho I guess its more adult themes would shift the audience slightly

Since our OP doesn't want to have a serious discussion about this book we are moving it to the CB where it belongs.

I might read this book just to see if it's as terrible as it seems. I bet the bondage in it is really shite

I'm betting my balls here that it isn't worse than Turkish Fruit (Turkish Delight) a dutch erotic (famous, well-received) novel.
