Ugh, sounds horrible, both in terms of his behaviour and her acceptance and also just the mere thought of having an unquestioningly subservient wife gives me the shivers.
Well, two consenting adults giving each other what they desire....

Who are we to judge ;-)

As for Amazon "pushing" a book to visitors: you don't have to visit Amazon.com, you know?

You can also physically visit a book-store and browse the shelves there. They do have the best-sellers near the entrance there, too.
But you can ignore them much better in a physical bookstore, IMO.

No, I got mad when Amazon pushed me to buy an expensive book based on their contention that it was popular. Lies, lies and mor lies.


They all got us used to prepay. But truly good sales wo*men sell us stuff that is not produced yet.
For a writer having a best-seller before finishing must be almost better than a Pulitzer price.

But it will get worse, bowlie, you probably bought a cliff-hanger
