so my wife and i tried listening 50 shades og gray by shiniez so my wife and i tried listening 50 shades og gray by shiniez
we got out hands on an original in english audiobook version of 50 shades of grey. given the specific topic of the book and my own little hobby here we had to give it a try...

so here are out opinions after first half of book 1

1 it is quite obvious that this begun its life as twifiction, characters just feel copy pasted. and i'm not trying to bash on it, it is just that its a story about a pale awkward girl who will do anything for a distant guy who tries to keep her away but , oh just cant help himself... oh and she has a friend who wants to jump her bones... who is , i think mexican and names jose.....

but still i will give the writer some credit, we stuck by this book... we gave up on trying to listen to twilight at 45th infinite rant on edwards hawtness.... this one we stuck by... ish

see, thing about us is , we don't like jumping on bandwagons, we try stuff out

so.. anyways, i will give the write some mad props for including a personal favorite gesture of mine and that is lipbite!

thing that kills the realism is the fact that this is what it is, a female orientated erotic novel. as such it uses every trick in the book to try and paint the picture of the dark mysterious tortured soul, the kind girls just want to teach what love is...

the guy that just appears when you think of him, and so on.

unfortunately it is a cliche that is deepening the confusion between genders and promotes alienation... but ill get to that on another occasion and in an actual strip...

so... what was the experience like for us so far?


and here is why, it is not the story, it is the reader. she is doing a good job with it, a bit droning from time to time, but there are a few phrases that keep repeating ... 2 of them are,

oh my!


i swallow!

being immature douchebags , both of us kept hearing george takei saying the oh my...

and then it went from bad to worse after we saw this joke video


so yeah... we ended up imagining what if anastasia's lines were read by george take, and gray was read by godfrey....

so ... yknow, we decided to take a break till our maturity was regained and we could listen on without bursting into crippling laughter

cause we are idiots like that!

I think you're going to enjoy this very much. I laughed so hard I eventually got tears in my eyes the first time I read it…
The GIFs are so spot on. Particularly your "oh my" Takei one.

It also became apparent that although the movie is based on E.L. James' raunchy best-selling novel, the film centers more on the romance between the two leads rather than their erotic sex lives. The focus of the preview was the couple's courting, except for a brief glimpse of Johnson wearing a black blindfold in a red room in the preview, reports E! News.

"Rather then [sic] fill the five-minute teaser with the sex that made the books by British author E.L James so popular, the studio went against expectations and highlighted the romance between the two leads," Entertainment Weekly's Nicole Sperling writes. "But with the exception of a brief blindfold, a hand on a thigh and a glimpse of a riding crop, Mr. Grey's penchant for domineering sex was kept to a minimum."

Despite speculation that a version of the film might be rated NC-17, CinemaBlend's Eric Eisenberg said the initial preview is far more PG.

I know you are much more acclimated with culture, the mindset and whole shebang, and I am quite a novice with the whole BDSM world, but from things like what I hear from experienced individuals such as yourself and even reading the back of the novels all I can think is "Really? Hell I written better shlock." Though I don't know if it is a put-down to E.L. James or a compliment about my work.

By the way, any chance I could ask for some commentary on my material?

Amazing take on the book, I have not wanted to venture into it, for that same reason, after having seen the joke video by George Takei I figured I wouldnt make it through the book... please fill me in if it's worth the read...

Did you know there is actually a video of takei reading 50 shades?
julezz30 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2013
This is amazing. Hahha. The video has changed my life. It's like Christopher Walken doing Pokerface. The amazing things on internet :)

50 Shades. Yuck. To be honest I started reading a HP fanfiction that sparked my interest in BDSM fiction. Very well written. I couldn't finish 50 Shades. It huuurt!

As an avid reader and writer, I refrained from reading 50 Shades. I'll write my own porn thanks very much. But oh! To have the voice talent of Gilbert Gottfried --the penultimate achievement--read it aloud! *weeps with longing*

Actually cried a little when he said, "Cli TOOOR iSSS." Tears of laughter rolling down my face.

I love your artwork, and I appreciate that you are taking the time to develop the story and characters within. Am eagerly awaiting the next installment!
