Is this something to be concerned about?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24090746

I would only worry if she tells you what a great and well written story it is... I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so I read it and let me tell you my first thought was HTF did this steaming pile of crap become a best seller? My second thought was if I keep reading maybe it will get better ... no dice they didn't

If she likes books that seem like they were written by a high school drop out who was failing English with a weird twilight bondage fetish then you have a problem. It was repetitive, boring and childish.

(Spoiler Alert) I wanted to kick that bitches "Inner Goddess" right in the cooch and every time she bit her lip, rolled her eyes or said "Oh My" I wanted wretch. I wrote that as a spoiler alert because that is a lot of the book consisted of.

If she wants to read something raunchy and well written I'd suggest the Sleeping Beauty series by Anne Rice

I agree with you here 100%. And I'm a girl. This book is a bunch of crap. I felt exactly the same way about her inner goddess. The author uses that liberally throughout the book. It seems to be her only literary device, if I can even use the word "literary" to refer to this book. It is definitely not. She seems to have some sort of Ally McBeal hangover as well. The character's inner goddess is always dancing the salsa or doing cartwheels or being this or being that. Highly irritating.

I also felt the same way about the "oh my". Makes the character seem like an old bag lady. Very unsexy.

I have no idea how this book got into the bestseller list as well. Reads like fan fiction of the most horrible, cheapest and most amateurish variety. The fact that it became a bestseller does not bode well for the direction of the human race. There are a lot of good erotic stories and novels out there for women, so I don't get what the fuss is all about with this one.

But then again I also don't get what the fuss was about Harry Potter. I couldn't get involved with that character -- too dry and boring for me. So many great fantasy books out there. Why did this one hit it big? Go figure.

And the Hunger Games -- don't ever fall for the hype. I also tried that one out just to know what the fuss was all about and I deeply regretted it. Load of crap of the most horrible kind.

End of rant.
