The End Is Nigh!

Postby exolstice » Thu Aug 09, 2012 9:39 am

I don't want to live in a world where a series of books that started out as Twilight erotic fan-fiction has now surpassed the Harry Potter series in terms of sales:

My Aunt was actually reading that drivel when the girl was posting it chapter by chapter in a forum. She should have made better friends with the tart!

Every time I think I understand what's going in the world, something like this happens, that just leaves me completely baffled.

The story should have ended where one of the readers (MY AUNT I HOPE) just copy/pasted that shite over to Simon & Shulster and claimed it for their own.

It's surpassed Harry Potter because there are more stupid people in the world than smart people. Simple as that. Stupid person writes stupid shite, stupid person reads stupid shite, stupid person recommends stupid shite to other stupid people, repeat.

It probably doesn't hurt that the stupid shite is written at a third grade reading level. Helps the stupid people feel smart when they can actually finish a book that's more than ten pages long.

It's still baffling. Stupid people shouldn't be reading books!

I've heard several people start a conversation about 50 Shades by saying, "I don't normally read, but..."

And I'm like, "No fucking shite."

And it's been praised as being a "sex starter" type book.

My wife read it...I didn't see any action as a result.

If my wife read 50 Shades and then wanted more sex my libido would shrivel up and die. I just don't find mental deficiency at all arousing.

The same women that read 50 Shades are the same ones that read Harry Potter and Twilight and The Hunger Games; whatever is popular at the moment. They won't find an author or book on their own, they just wait for Phil Donahue to tell them what's popular. These people aren't readers.
