This is honestly the most entertaining and fun series I've read in a long time. It's no fine work of literature and it's not extremely well written but if you're just looking for a good time, give them a read you won't be sorry. I read through "Darker" and "Freed" in just a matter of days.
I recently had the privilege, to meet the author E.L. James. My awesome dad agreed to take May 8th off of work to take me and our friend to meet E.L. James at a signing at the Barnes & Noble in Paramus, NJ. Paramus isn't too far away from where we live in NY and the event didn't start until 7:30PM. However, Barnes & Noble began handing out wristbands at 9AM that day to the first 300 guests. So to ensure we got in, we embarked on our adventure early that morning. We arrived at the store a little after 9AM and about 100 ladies were already waiting to get in the store to buy the book and obtain a wristband.
The line moved pretty quickly and one woman, who had already gotten her wristband, was passing out coupons for her store. She said, "everything that is in the book is in my store." I appreciate her marketing skills but unfortunately her shop, which we visited later, did not include everything mentioned in the book. For example, there was no Charlie Tango and even sadder, no Christian Grey.
Anyways, back to the line, we got in around 9:30 and got our books and our wristbands. We spent the rest of the day cruising around the Paramus area. My dad took me and our friend to IKEA for awhile because we had both never been to one. It was pretty awesome. I considered moving into the one mock apartment.
|Needless to say E.L. James is the one signing my book.
