Fifty Shades of What?!?!?

My sister recently completed Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James.  "Sister" not only recommended I read it, she insisted.  This persistence should have been my first warning.  I do not get too rattled by "stuff" in books, but I assume that books contain interesting story lines, strong characters, amazing settings, etc.

Fifty Shades of Grey was about ten pages of a lackluster story and 490 pages of smut.  Now, keep in mind that I read all 500 pages just to be sure (ha! ha!) that I would not miss any of the story.  I will not be picking up the sequels.  If you are looking for a trashy beach read--this may be the book.  Anything even slightly more--save your money.
