I read the other day that 'Fifty shades of grey' is going to be made into a film/movie and will be released around August 2014. My first reaction was to laugh - I thought this was a literary disaster, but then I thought this makes perfect sense. It made money as a book now they're going to milk it for even more money by dramatising it for the big screen. It is obvious to me this is for those people who were curious about the book but never bothered to read it, or those who like a little bit of eroticia but perhaps don't like to read. My personal opinion in the book, and my predjudice dates back to when I saw the ebook for free (I've been duped by free/low priced books before and found them awful with spelling mistakes bad grammar etc.), I later heard of its 'overnight success' (but this still didn't tempt me to buy/read the book) and of its critics who ridiculed the book for its bad writing style. I'm posting this to find out others reactions to the news. Is this just a cash cow and it will be milked until dry or should we show our solidarity for the new aspiring writer who has 'made it' and gone from obscurity to fame overnight. Have the critics been too harsh on E L James? What's your opinion?
