1. It’s badly written fanfiction, passed off as real original fiction.
2. Ana is an unbelievable idiot. She is even more boring than Bella. And no one is that innocent.
3. E.L. James is a worse writer than Stephenie Meyer. She is repetitive and sloppy.
4. Christian Grey is an ass, a man of no character at all, a whiny, bossy brute.
5. James did NO research on anything: the setting, the sex, American English… anything.
6. It has made me think less of people who adore it.
7. It’s a perfect example of the undeserving gaining wealth from poor work.
8. I find the subject matter uninteresting. I don’t even like well written BDSM or D/s so this stuff is utterly unreadable.
9. I am still amazed that such crap got published at all.
10. E.L. James makes people think that all fanfiction writers are morons like her.

10. An attorney passed on and found himself in Heaven, but not at all happy with his accommodations. He complained to St. Peter, who told him that his only recourse was to appeal his assignment. The attorney immediately advised that he intended to appeal, but was then told that he would be waiting at least three years before his appeal could be heard. The attorney protested that a three-year wait was unconscionable, but his words fell on deaf ears. The lawyer was then approached by the devil, who told him that he would be able to arrange an appeal to be heard in a few days, if the attorney was willing to change venue to Hell. When the attorney asked why appeals could be heard so much sooner in Hell, he was told, "We have all of the judges."
