Only 1 in 10 read 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' completely
Most readers of Fifty Shades Of Grey are men and they are unlikely to finish reading the erotic novel- even though many fans boast they consume the whole book in days or even hours, according to an electronic data.
E.L. James's novel is now the bestselling book in the UK since records began, with more than 5.3million copies sold in paper and ebook forms.
About 70 per cent of readers bought it in the electronic format, the Daily Mail reported.
But data collected by Kobo, the firm which makes ebook readers sold by WH Smith, showed that only 18,000 readers using the system who rated the book after buying it have finished it so far - just 10.5 per cent of a total of 170,000.
The data also suggests that about a tenth of the readers of James's novel are men and they are less impressed than the women who leave comments.
One fan complains about James's habit of using the expression "Holy cr*p".
Another simply says "You can tell it was written by a man," even though James - real name Erika Leonard - is a mother of two living in West London.
Kobo also allows readers to 'write in the margins'.
"Most people commented on Chapters 1, 5 and 23. But almost every chapter drove thousands of people to highlight passages," said Kobo executive vice-president Todd Humphrey.
Chapter 1 introduces heroine Anastasia in her interview with telecoms billionaire Grey. Chapter 5 brings the reader to his home for the first time. Chapter 23, towards the end, is considerably steamier, but none of these chapters ranks among the book's most sexually explicit.
