Not sure where the class aspect comes in. My post was in relation to Calilasseia's remark that the book seemed to be aimed at sexually unsuccessful teenage boys: an interesting conjecture, but one not borne out by my admittedly limited observation.

To me it seems like the "adult" version of Mills & Boon, which means you are only likely to enjoy it if you already enjoy Mills & Boon, the sanitised equivalent of pornography for women too timid to go for the real thing. If you think Mills & Boon novels are childishly written, cliché-ridden and with cardboard cut-out characters, then that is what you will think of 50 Shades.
