'Fifty Shades' ordered off shelves
Brazilian judge says bookstores need to keep the racy novel under lock and key
According to a statement by the Rio de Janeiro State Judiciary Department, on January 14, the order was handed down by Judge Raphael Queiroz Campos after he saw kids having a big ole team leafing through the series in one of city's bookstores.
Eleven copies of the "Grey" series were among 64 books taken from the shelves of two bookstores because their content was deemed improper for those under the age of 18.
Shortly following the removal of the books, they were returned to shelves, but sealed and out of reach of minors.

You dont like it u dont read simple whats for one person isnt always for another. Everyone is a critic everyone has something to say, get over yourself you can have all the negative feedback you can slam it all u want but she's laughing all the way to the bank. Apparently there is enough people out there who think different about the books, You have such negative to say see if you can do better. DONT LET YOU MOUTH WRITE CHECKS YOUR **** CANT CASH. Write something better or just i dont no SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!
Oh for goodness sake. Is there no end to this madness. Everywhere I turn, every headline making news, it's all about how people feel so "entitled" that "their" feelings matter most, and are more and more easily exercising the power granted to the word "offended." Does it occur to no one that perhaps something YOU do, (or read, or watch, or like?) might (forgive me)..."offend"....someone, somewhere, somehow? Does that mean we should all be put under some type of (environmentally-friendly, dolphin-friendly, green, free-range, recyclable, non-habit-forming, man-made synthetic type of) opiate-haze, ignorant of any ideas not of our own making, while burning/removing/prohibiting/forbidding whatever "offends" our delicate sensibility?
It's a friggin' BOOK, people.
Ok, well I missed the book editor rating session- obviously. So here i will say it..there are lots of books out there, good books to read and get something out of it, including just the pleasure of reading. I don't get how the Publishing industry has decided to sell soft core porn and call it a Novel. Hey, that's cool for all you who liked it, but if you see me reading a penthouse in Public- I'm a pervert? So If it good for the wife it's good for the public? This is a sad day after reading the comments.
I will ask a few questions here... Does it make any of you wonder why we have teens getting pregnant? Does anyone still wonder why we have a sex driven society? Ok, Screw it... if you all can flaunt your porn in public, I will dangle my 23 year old girlfriend in front of all the pent up old biddies that are my age- over 55, and no one better say nothing to her or me...What a screwed up society we live in..oh well- get your rocks off ladies- i don't personally know a guy that has read it ..
I've read all three books and they are fine, they are not by any means one of the literary treasures of our time but they are entertaining and that's the whole point of a novel.
This isn't the dark ages for crying out loud! No book should be banned, do your job as a parent and make sure YOUR kid doesn't read it. Next you all are going to start ranting about burning the book all together.. it's a book if you don't like the content don't read it.
