50 Shades of Grey is the sort of book I wonder how it made it into a Book. You read it and the writing is that poor you just wonder who the hell though this should be a Book. And yet, there you go. Now I know many people have other faults to find with it and there are other faults. A lot of them. I just could not get past the writing itself. It flat out ruins a novel to be honest. Although that one did it all on its own without considering the writing. So don’t count me as a fan. I have to say if there is any sort of hype about a book, then the book sucks. Or certainly that has been the case with the three major hyped up novels I read. I will stick with what I like I think.
Fifty Shades of Grey is breaking box-office records faster than it’s breaking taboos. The much anticipated movie version of E.L. James’ hit novel has raked in $81.67 million since it opened Friday, and Universal projects the movie will make over $90 million over the four-day weekend, Deadline reports.
That makes Fifty Shades of Grey the record holder for best Presidents’ Day opening weekend of all time.
Kingsman: The Secret Service didn’t do badly either, with $35.6 over three days (handily beating 20th Century Fox’s estimate of $20 million). That’s probably thanks to all the guys who didn’t want to go see 50 Shades ofGrey.
