Fifty Shames of Earl Grey by Fanny Merkin│ Book Review



A shrewd, laugh-out-loud parody of E.L. James' bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey series.

Young, arrogant, tycoon Earl Grey seduces the naive coed Anna Steal with his overpowering good looks and staggering amounts of money, but will she be able to get past his fifty shames, including shopping at Walmart on Saturdays, bondage with handcuffs, and his love of BDSM (Bards, Dragons, Sorcery and Magick)? Or will his dark secrets and constant smirking drive her over the edge.

♥My Review♥

As far as parodies go, this was enjoyable! It was fast paced and entertaining read. IT referenced Twilight often, which makes sense since Fifty Shades of Grey was originally fan fiction.

I don't think that someone who hasn't read the Fifty Shades would understand most of the references that it uses. IE...Earl buys Walmart where Anna works, Ear works as  a bartender part time, as well as any references about his sexuality.

The writing was okay, nothing spectacular but I didn't go into this book expecting it to be, considering i was a parody. I think the writer wrote the book well. All in all, I liked this book.

I gave it ♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads.
