See E.L. James on The View
I never read any of E.L. James’ books. I had absolutely no desire to do so even though she sold over 125 million copies worldwide, 35 million in the United States. They are classified as erotic romances.
The following trilogies that James is so well-known for are: Fifty Shades Of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed. Her latest book is The Mister.
When I heard that James was going to be interviewed by Mitch Kaplan of Books & Books at the Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center in Miami last week, I knew I had to attend. I wanted to meet the woman who was considered to have one of the sexiest minds in the world.
I looked around the room. Approximately 200 women and three men showed up for the event. Many of the women I spoke to were huge fans. They spoke of James like they personally knew her. They wait patiently for every new book. There was no question in my mind, after I saw most of the audience line up to get their books autographed, that many women today still have an active fantasy life. It doesn’t matter what their circumstances are.
I am amused by the pseudo intellects who say James is a terrible writer. She doesn’t claim to be Harper Lee or Jane Austen. She knows exactly who she is, a happy wife and mother who knows how to entertain other women who love to dream.
