Loved the concept...some parts are humorous... some are myraid... had to skim through some of the description... I wish it was written more interestingly because the concept does have the potential...

Wow! Thats quite some take on E.L James' trilogy. The protagonist is an interesting and clever contrast to the original Mr. Grey. The fact that he is an unassuming, average, 'aam aadmi' in every sense makes the premise very interesting. The humor works very well and his internal monologue is pretty hilarious at several places.

The issues with this narrative despite it being a very fun read is that the whole set up would work much better as a shorter, crisper short story. Because as a novel...or even a novella, the premise will begin to get a little monotonous. Also, the issue in these early chapters, which will most probably not there once we read the entire book, is that there is just one character. And while that format works mostly, we still need to see and hear some other characters to set the context and universe. Otherwise, again, monotony will be an issue.
Overall, this is an excellent premise. And most of its issues will automatically get reduced with some heavy editing and maybe revising the format as a long (upto 10,000 words) short story. That way, every chapter becomes a crisp para and punch of it all, with its crisp hilarity, is magnified at least ten times. I loved the premise, the set up and the character and I think it has a whole lot of potential.

A failed attempt at humour and something else!

Hysterical!!! A guide for all those Christian wannabes and a great source of entertainment for the rest of us. Page turner and wondering where it will lead.

Seems good, however it also seems like a to do list especially in the first chapter -also you have put some numbers in brackets. If this can be incorporated within the story itself you may have a winner, else it seems pretty drab.
