Alan Bressler is a semi retired executive, entrepreneur, avid reader, philanthropist, athlete, kayaker...(I could go on and on)... Most of all he's dearly admired by friends and family and doesn't care if his name is used in connection with FIFTY SHADES OF GREY by E.L. James
Here are Alan Bressler's comments:
"The book is a little bit like the Hunger Games series in that once you start it you want to see what happens next. Not great writing in either series but when you are coining money that fast, why should the author care!! The question in my mind is “How do women view this book- and as Maureen Dowd in a New York Times article put it- “Is this where women’s lib brought us to?”
No question that the book fulfills a great fantasy for both men and women..for men- we all wish we were 27 again and, if we were, to be built like Mr. Grey. For women, what fantasy does this fulfill? There is no question that great indignation will arise among women of our generation and the next, but in order for this book to be so widely read with publicity fostered by word of mouth, there is no question that it definitely fulfills a significant gap in people’s fantasy lives.
Does this mean a “wish list” or “dream fulfillment” for women who do not and have not in the past experienced the explosive orgasms as portrayed in the book? Or for men, does the wish fulfillment mean that they would like to have performed as Mr. Grey does with such a willing subject as Ms. Steele?
What do you think of this review?
