Hello, guys! Let me tell you a story.
A few weeks ago, I found out that 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James was going to become a movie. Unfortunately, I’m one of those people who haven’t bothered with the trilogy yet, so my only knowledge of it was only limited to a few things: that it was previously a Twilight fanfiction, it features an abusive relationship, aaaand that it has copious amounts of sex… and… other forms of sex. If you know what I mean.
So, I decided to finally read it before the movie comes out. And that’s when I had this grand idea of recording myself read all of the twenty-six chapters, and when I asked people on Twitter, they happily (and laughingly…) supported my silly idea. So… here it is. A video of myself reading the first chapter of 50 Shades of Grey.
In any case, I’m not sure I enjoyed it. In a nutshell, the recording itself was fine, the reading… not so much. One thing I noticed was that there was such a strong emphasis on unnecessary details, like one long paragraph dedicated to Ana brushing her hair, one full page of Grey’s interns and assistants (oh, did I mention that they were blondes?) getting her a nice glass of iced water, what everyone is wearing, etc. etc. It was tiring. And I didn’t like it.
Enough about that, though. Want to see the video itself? Here it is! Please don’t judge me.
Is it not appearing? Check it out HERE.
What do you think? Did you enjoy the first chapter? Have you read the book? Did you like it? NO SPOILERS!
