Interesting posts. I followed the media storm when this was published as I was convinced that it was a self-fulfilling prophecy in that you can make a book "commercial" (even when it contains a lot of strong adult scenes), simply by generating enough pre-publication publicity. But this was deemed by many to be "torture-porn" (http://www.spinetinglermag.com/2010/03/31/the-new-six-figure-torture-porn-industry/)

I wrote a short blog post on this way back (I coudn't understand how this could be commercial and my own similar novel deemed "not commercial") and have another longer blog post due out in a couple of weeks. Personally I couldn't see what the fuss was about - it was strong and dark yes, but not gratuitous in any way. I enjoyed it.
