Read my full review of the book at seriesousbookreviews.com! Spoiler Free!

NOTE: I never finished this book. I got to Chapter 3 before I gave up. Find out why below...

It shouldn't be too hard to write a parody of Fifty Shades of Grey. I mean, people can simply read a line from the book aloud and laugh.

I think it tries too hard to be "out-there". The story is just plain odd and weird, not funny. Some lines (maybe about 3 sentences of the 15 pages I managed to read) were actually witty and encouraged me to keep reading. They were what I was expecting the book to be like and not random calls from Beyoncé or a 40 year old roommate bits we get. The wit was just too few and far between so I had to put this book down.

OVERALL: This was awful--I don't know what else to say!

Some parts are hilarious, while others ventured off into such bizarre randomness that left me going "WTF?" The start is absolute dynamite (the part about the hand buzzer!), but my attention wandered a bit in the middle, maybe because I haven't actually read the original, so some remarks might have gone over my head. (I'm aware of the infamous tampon scene though, and the repetitive "long fingers", and how she keeps on tripping and doesn't have e-mail.) Even so, there was still enough material for someone who hasn't read it to find this book funny. What is amazing is that the author was able to sustain a parody of this length. It also doesn't go on for too long, thankfully. Just when the energy starts to flag, the pace quickens, and we're soon ushered into the ending before I can let out any groans of complaint.

There is a lot of text-based humor (a few times I had to make a mental "I see what you did there" hat tip to the author), but there is also so much physical comedy here that I kept on imagining this as a movie, like "Vampires Suck" did for Twilight. I wouldn't mind if they used this as a basis! I'd watch that. ( )

I eye him suspiciously. “You’re a strange man, Mr. Grey.”
“You have no idea,” he says, finishing his banana off.


This is one of the funniest books i've read, ever! If you asked me to choose favorite quotes, i would have to throw the entire thing at you. There is one of the scenes i truly love, and that is the end with the Count..
