The "New York Times" Rips a New "Fifty Shades of Grey" Book a New One

June 27, 2015 - Fifty Shades of Grey

Let’s be honest: Grey, E.L. James’ follow adult to Fifty Shades of Grey told from Christian’s perspective, isn’t receiving the, to put it delicately, kindest reviews. However, by distant a meanest came out in a pages of The New York Times. The Gray Lady is so unenthused Grey, that some of a many slicing barbs to ever be printed in a shining pages are destined during a book. Way Harsh, Tai.

Without serve ado, here’s some of a cruelest passages from Janet Maslin’s infamous review:

Ms. James’s possess imagination is limited, and she has already taken it about as distant as it’ll go.

Then there’s:

Speaking of cries for help, Ms. James leaves herself badly unprotected by this book’s extreme atmosphere of desperation.

It goes from bad:

[James’] possess fans write improved stories about Christian Grey than she does. The fact that hers is a hidebound, copyright and much-copied chronicle doesn’t make it a critical one.

To worse:

[James] has let time mount still in sequence to gain on one large hit, though she’s operative in such a fast-moving middle that her disaster of imagination is dangerous. She didn’t accurately invent these characters in a initial place: She was a “Twilight” fan who appropriated them, tweaked them and done them hugely available for a while.

The whole thing is a inhuman takedown from word go. And while it’s delicious, who knows if it’ll have any impact on a hard-core Grey fans out there. After all, many of them are masochists. (YA BURNT!)
