Only if you’ve read it
No doubt the less inhibited inmates at the Big House have already done this to death but here in the hushed corridors of the Colosseum I’ve seen no mention of THAT BOOK (or books to be exact) which now outsells Harry Potter and probably the Bible and will soon challenge Mrs Beeton.
‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is all about sex, experienced by a young woman somewhere over in Christina’s neck of the woods. But, of course, if you’ve read it, you don’t need me to tell you that. The question is: have you? Read it, I mean. Or is the book one of those that a) you haven’t read but already have views about; b) have read but would rather not say; c) have read and are now avidly re-reading or d) have read and want everybody to know! (There may of course be other options which my cherished reader will soon address.)
As a starter, let me say that all the reviewers claim it is being devoured by women. (How can they know that, btw?) It has allegedly already increased the conception rate and the sales of sundry accessories for use in what used to be called the bedroom. It also is of zero literary merit – another not-unexpected judgement by the Hay fraternity.
But since you asked, Backside said it’s a stonking good read and stuff the experts with their dog-eared copy (or words to that effect).
