A story about this — 1 year ago
Holy offensiveness, Batman. This book oozed racism and misogyny. And I’m not referring to the plot itself— I’m referring to the author’s treatment of, and descriptions of, their own characters; the stereotyping, the fetishizing, and (the final straw for me) the casual, repeated use of rape as a lurid plot device. Every POC in this book is an exotic showpiece. Every woman in this book is a struggling victim. Good thing there’s a white man around to save the day.
