This is the first time I've heard of this. Apparently these books, starting with 50 Shades of Grey
, have become the next book phenomenon and holds the title of fastest-selling novel beating Harry Potter
. They are now even going to be turned into movies.
I can understand Harry Potter
getting popular. One has a boy learning he is a wizard and going to a magic school, while the other has a vampire and a teenage girl falling in love with each other.
But this? I glanced at the plot of the first book it looks like it is just romance with a bunch of BDSM sex. Amusingly this series started out as Twilight
How did these books get so huge? Has anyone here read them or seen others reading these books?
