50 Shades of Grey - Hip or Hype?

The last couple of days have been mundane to say the least but in order to spice up my life I jumped on the bandwagon that is all things Christian Gray, so far I'm only on page 104 of 50 Shades of Grey and am far from hooked.  In fact I might go as far as to say I'm a little disappointed if not a little concerned for poor Anastasia but it could just be that i'm not into the whole Domination thing unless I'm the one bearing the whip ;)

So far the characters have managed to mildly intrigue me and I must say the lift scene could get anyone a little hot under the collar, especially singletons such as myself, but I'm still not convinced.  I've read comments that suggest it is poorly written, and for those of us who enjoy the greats like Jane Austin and Charles Dickens, no it isn't of the same caliber, but I say if you're reading 'trash' (and I mean that in the politest form of the word) then you should expect trash.  I've read a few Mills & Boon 'romances' in my time, most of them borrowed from mums secret collection (sorry mum) and so far I'd pick any one of those over this.

That said having not finished reading I will now shut my mouth and finish the book.  I may soon find that I swallow my words when I (having taken on Ana's persona)  finally get to undress the rich hunk that is Christian Grey.
