Fifty Shades of Grey

Again I am going to write about this book, Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James.  I attempted to read this dang thing and failed miserably.  I am not a prude by any stretch of the imagination and I rarely stop reading a book but this one, yes I did.  I've been thinking about it again because I found out the thing has been opted for a movie with possibly Dakota Fanning or Shailene Woodley as Anastasia and possibly Robert Pattinson as Grey.  It is described as "mommy porn," but I beg to differ really.  Again, I am not a prude and don't mind the sex stuff so much but the degradation of Anastasia in this book when we as women are trying to hold on to what we have fought so hard for, our rights.  Really!  I know I didn't finish the book and should not have an opinion but I draw the line at S&M and a man telling a woman what to wear, what to eat, when to sleep, etc.  That book should NOT be touted by women, really,   Are we back to letting men club us on the noggin' and draggin' us around by our ponytail!  I THINK NOT!

I had not even heard of this book until today - read it on two blogs - I am curious about it - I likely shouldn't be.... I'm ordered it from the library - I will be waiting a while though I am 56th in line!
