OK - well, I don't mean to imply that fans of this series enjoyed lewd or brutal depictions of horrible pain and torture. It's just strange to put this in a fantasy series when worse happens in real life - I'm of the opinion that we read fantasy to escape, but some of it seems to be more about escaping the modern, Western world to descend into and read about more barbaric practices. Like having a 9-5 is such a soul crushingly bad thing compared to being a member or victim of a horde of bloodthirsty ravagers who rape and pillage :P.

Excellent review. Strengthens my resolve to reread at least part of TtH before starting. Thanks. *NM* - 01/07/2010 02:08:40 AM 971 Views
You don't need to reread TtH, actually. Reaper's Gale is much more relevant. - 01/07/2010 09:44:43 AM 1266 Views
But I didn't like Reaper's Gale. *NM* - 02/07/2010 02:30:01 AM 723 Views

Yes, that was the main thing I was getting at with the "strong stomach" comment. - 01/07/2010 09:58:14 AM 1813 Views

Maybe your thesis is just a little too simple, then. - 01/07/2010 01:20:01 PM 1415 Views
It's not really a thesis statement. - 01/07/2010 01:33:03 PM 1350 Views

Yeah, agreed. - 02/07/2010 09:50:57 AM 1366 Views
