Fifty Shades of Grey – the movie – premiered over the Valentine’s Day weekend. I have not seen it and have no intentions to. I read the books long after all the furor had died down and only perhaps because I was in China for a month and got bored.
There have been calls in Jamaica by church folk for it to be banned. In light of recent newsworthy events, including: strangulation, dismemberment prior to disposal of bodies and body parts, perhaps they should be making calls for television shows aired on both local and cable tv to be banned. I did not hear a call for Dexter to be banned before it aired its last episode but looking at all the things that have been happening I am sure that I am not the only one who thinks that these crazy people doing these crazy, unforgivable things are getting their cues from somewhere and it definitely was not Fifty.
But I digress. The wonderful people over at Grammarly being the grammar gods that they are, have reviewed the book for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, and learned that — although there were some mistakes — the errors were in alignment with similar gaffes in celebrated romances (Fifty was widely criticized for its poor use of language). They have also put together an awesome infographic highlighting these mistakes in other romance novels which I have shared below.
