It’s not our genre, we know - and it is the excuse we will cling to should anyone suggest we should review 50 Shades of Grey (so don’t even try - do not even try! You might however manage to get Tami to wax prophetic about her favourite porn. if you really want to see a review - go read Jennifer Armintrout’s excellent recaps - we can do no better and it says it all) but since it’s based on Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series (which we read - AND watched the films; we have suffered enough) we felt we could talk about this.
Now, everyone who knows anything about this series knows that it is based on Twilight fanfiction. If you’ve actually read any of the books it’s pretty blatantly obvious. The characters in this book have had their names filed off, but otherwise they’re not appreciably different from Twilight.
Well, it seems that E. L. James is MOST upset at people using her work without permission. And Her lawyer has said - I kid you not: "You can’t just hijack something someone else owns."
