I’ve just started the very popular 50 Shades of Grey, like seriously just started. I haven’t even gotten to any sexy scenes yet. I just wanted to talk about my newest theory. I think that it’s been written by Stefanie Meyer. Seriously. yes yes I know shes Mormon and all that, but there are such similarities its crazy! I think its twilight for grown-ups, and well, as far as I know its without the vampires. So here’s the similarities:
Isabella (Bella)/ Anastasia (Ana)
Both are clumsy, shy, pale, small and brunette.
Both have a love of the old classic books
Both have mothers who are a bit off the rails and who they don’t live with.
Both fall in love with an older, rich, gorgeous man
Both are spurned by said older, rich and gorgeous man at first, ‘for their own good’.
Both are saved by their sweety, Ana almost gets hit by a cyclist and Bella by a car.
Both have other men in their lives who love them but they spurn their advances
Both have never had a boyfriend before
Both work in ‘manly’ jobs. Ana works in a hardware store and Bella works in a Camping goods store
Both suck at sports.
That’s all I’ve got so far, but I”m sure I’ll find some others!
Have you read the book? What do you think of my conspiracy theory?
