    That's what happened with B.E.E.'s American Psycho in 1991. There were stories circulating that some bookstores weren't going to carry the novel due to its graphic violent and sexual content, so people ran out and bought it because of the curiosity factor. No doubt, it pumped up the sales figures.

    Honestly I have no idea why it has such appeal. It's not like this is the first erotic fiction to come out. Many erotic fiction titles have come out that are probably better written and they have not gotten the attention that Fifty Shades of Grey has. I suppose alot of it is just being in the right place at the right time or the author happened to know the right people in promoting the book?

    I normally avoid this sort of genre but I am kind of curious about this book. Maybe just to see if it deserves all the hype it's getting. I work in a library and my library has an extremely long waiting list. We definitely aren't banning the book like some libraries are. The waiting list is so long that unless the library orders more copies, if you requested it today, you would wait about a year to get it. I'm not kidding.

    Keep hearing about this, it's a book, right?

    I'm thinking, how can a book have sex scenes with music that's now shot up to the top of the Classical charts here?

    In one of my creative writing classes someone said it's like an adult Twilight where the virgin's first time is anal? I didn't look up, needless to say, but I have heard escalating tales of its magnificence.

    I've been avoiding reading this book, but a work mate keeps treating us to descriptions of each sex scene. The funny thing is this particular work mate thinks I'm a prude. I'm not, i just don't want to hear about sex at work. A good friend who's just finished reading the trilogy, and is more balanced in her opinion, informed me I've read far more racy stuff, with out blinking a eyelid, so would find it rather tame.
    It's not a book I'd specifically go to seek out, but the damn hype surrounding it holds people hostage, and I feel I have to go read it just shut people up.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    I haven't heard anything about it except that it's just plain soft porn so I haven't bothered with it at all. (yet it appears that everyone is reading it despite their claims so I have no idea what the secret appeal is unless people are suddenly outwardly admitting they love romance novels.)

    Argh curse you, girl from my drunk kitchen! I was about to link that
    Chimera of Filth

    A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors
