Love it or loathe it, the phenomenal success of E.L. James Fifty Shades series cannot be denied. For those living under a rock as far as fan fiction is concerned for the past couple of years, Fifty Shades began life as a Twilight fan fiction called Master of the Universe. The battle still rages on the ethics behind pulling a fan fiction based on the work of another author to publish and probabaly will for some time to come especially with the number of Twilight fan fics that have now gone into print under another name. Fifty Shades is the first to garner the attention of the movie makers with a reportedly multi million dollar deal paid for the rights by Universal. Rumours are rife on who will take the coveted lead role of Christian Grey, with names like Ian Somerhalder and Robert Pattinson (obviously) being thrown in to the hat but since the subject matter and storyline are pretty much X rated, it remains to be seen who will be brave enough to enhance their careers with that much action in the bedroom, or should I say red room!
Most book sellers are currently doing deals on this book series. Amazon has them all priced at £3.99.
If you were unable to read the original fan fiction, sadly it is no longer online although I’m sure that a few million copies are saved on home computers around the globe!
