After only hearing about it I am now the latest victim of E L James' bestseller.
I am 270 pages through and my naive spirit is bouncing against a new wall -- page after page. Almost. At least that's how it feels.
This is different from everything what I have read so far (and I read a lot) and I am only saying that the heroine is certainly not anything close to the characters of Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Eyre or Marianne Dashwood.
No. A reference to Thomas Hardy is made several times, and having read Tess as well I can say that it is a more a modern Tess than anybody else...
Has anyone else read 50 shades of grey? What do you think? I am not sure what I shall think. Ought to think. Too early. I will post a comment later on my book blog over at happyblue book club.
Oh -- and I think it's time for a re-read of Tess... :-)
Have a great weekend. Mine will be grey.....
