50 Shades of Grey was a book I apprached very apprehensively. With all the hype and terms like "mummyporn" being thrown around I wasn't sure whether I should waste my time with it but when a customer at the Library who happened to be a psychiatrist recommended it, I was intrigued. Her comment was that it was an interesting study on a very sad, damaged man. This man, with the aid of the female protagonist worked through his issues in rather interesting ways. Her reactions to his 'kinkiness'was what I found interesting. It might be racy and yes, bordering on porn and I wouldn't ever recommend this book to a teenager, not even to my daughter who is 21, but it certainly is one of those books you can't put down. I read the series of three in 2 weeks. Prudish people and lovers of "good literature, darling" need not apply.

I am waiting to read the book "1Q84" by Haruki Murakami at the moment. A couple of people have recommended it to me but it is a VERY thick book so is probably going to take me ages to read! Thats why I would take it to the desert island as I would need something long to keep me occupied and I would have lots of free time to get through it!
Has anyone read it? Is it any good?
