These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Satanic Verses
No Such Thing as Bad Publicity: In the weeks following the fatwa, the novel shot to the top of bestseller lists worldwide, ultimately earning Rushdie approximately $2,000,000 in its first year of publication alone (about $4,000,000 today). Seriously, the Ayatollah should have gotten half of that money!
