50 Shades of Haaaaay

I got the book “50 Shades of Gray” a while ago. Actually, I bought it when it first came out on paperback. I’m not going to lie, I was intrigued, and wanted to see what all of the hype was about it. I read about ¼ of the book before I put it down. I lost interest…quickly. I feel almost uncomfortable reading it.

So here we are a couple of years later, and the movie comes out. I chose not to see it in the movie theater, on account of 1. No one would see it with me and 2. I was afraid that I would be surrounded by horny couples or wives trying to get husbands to spice things up.

I added it to the Netflix queue when it came out on DVD. I still put off watching it for a while. Finally, I just started the movie (Anna was there too) and just watched it. It started off slow…almost cheesy.  It was kind of like Twilight meets some kind of sex movie. But then once we started watching for a while, I got sucked in. And it wasn’t the sex parts either. I was more interested by the emotional connection (*spoiler* and lack thereof from Gray) And then the movie just stopped! I ended with tears down my face and anger for not having a resolution to the plot line!

All in all, I liked it. I am contemplating as to whether or not I actually want to read the book again, and possibly the other books.

Have you read it? Let me know what you all think.
