Twilight is a story about an abusive relationship, and "technically" it's written like uneditted fanfiction.
Still, nice if it had a positive effect on *something*.
It's all gimmick and marketing for the occasional reader.
Re:- Shades of Grey.
Yes that's right. I got about a third of the way into the first book. Very badly written. Everyone told me how good it was and that I had to read it, so I bought it. My guess is that they wouldn't know a good book if it hit them in the face. It was c**p.
For well-written erotica, I recommend Anais Nin. She's a twentieth century writer, but she knew her subject and still translates well today.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.
I like J D Robb, Death series. John Sandford, Prey series.
Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/ Maturin series "the greatest historical novels ever written" (with apologies to Lou and Wolfie, who have already been exposed to my overenthusiasm on the subject)
