About this item

The author analyzes the genre, adaptation, music, business schemes, merchandising, and other aspects of the Fifty Shades trilogy. He considers the trilogy from 11 perspectives: its origins as fan fiction; whether its genre is romance, ******, or ******; the uniqueness of its high visibility; resistance from faith-based groups and libraries; its relationship to BDSM (******, discipline, dominance and submission, sadism, and masochism) and how practitioners and experts argue that it fails to portray BDSM correctly; incidents allegedly inspired by the books, placing blame for criminal and non-criminal cases on them; fan fiction, book club experiences, and parodies related to the trilogy; music in the film adaptation; merchandising; Christian Grey as a brand, as well as brands that appeared in the film; and how Japanese readers and audiences reacted to the books.
