We interupt the strange world of the monkey house and go visit the normal world, apologies.
It started with Andrea our zoo keeper who was reading isbn: 9780099579939 is the book fifty shades of grey, and eventually i get (my blog) it -us being comedians, this block buster which are not the things i usually read. Although i do read* internet porn which has a magnitude of out there that publishing has issues with – words like vagina are missing in publishing. 50sog is very hetrosexual reads like mills and boon** with its fairy tale english literature cinderella arts major meets the prince.
Its quite tame by the monkey house standards and 50sog is a seduction. One wonders how many unhappy english lit students there will be when they dont meet that millionaire ceo with a helicopter . Being a shortage of princes.
2/5 bananas tame but coherent.
Fifty shades darker, isbn: 9780099579922 is the second book and continues its prediction for apple porn, helicopters and occasional sub par love interest. the s&m is toned back for the mills and boon audience and vagina is not mentioned and replaced with ‘our sex’.Nothing kinky happens by monkey house standards either and we are back to luxury yachts and ball gowns.
Like those trouble at mill dramas it follows we have villians and being very heterosexual there’s a marriage proposal and our english lit princess gets promoted one week into an temp job. Golly its too good to be true land.
The last book freed (isbn:9780099579946 )seems worth a read as can Ana Steel dekink Mr Grey from his playroom which Ms Steele is so frigid about.
It starts safe with le marriage and honeymoon so who really cares about that publishing career, keeping safely married there’s a bit more sex and the odd strange word that the copy reader seemed to miss that is the ‘my sex’ thing i noted earlier.
Ana our hero is now going to run her own publishing firm that’s going to make english literature students insufferable for some. EL James perceptions of reporters is also a little unreal and mixed in car crashes and attempted kidnapping this book is joke with a very happy ending.
0/5 bananas AND THEY BOTH LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER
But it has got people reading and into libraries, i would argue that publishing is a bit puritan about its attitudes to sex and the success of the ebooks probably made it a commercial decision to print a version opposed to an author seeking the literature snobs here in the uk.
An amusing tweet from @fiftyshadesofshit
My vagina was now so sensitive, that even the slightest touch caused me to fill my knickers with fanny foam. I was a human McFlurry machine
Internet porn is still better if the publishers and agents are reading. I wonder if english literature majors will be disappointed in this dream.
