Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James I can definitely see why this book is popular and to be honest the "erotica" part of it wasn't all that bad. I've read worse romance novels! So people are making a big deal over nothing. I don't know if this was just the speaker I was listening to (I listen to this as an audio book) but I found the writing, extremely juvenile... it reminded me a lot of Lauren Conrad's books and writing style. I probably won't read the rest in the series.
