I knew I was forgetting something... fionwe1987 Send a noteboard - 01/07/2010 04:57:16 PM

After the hobbling itself and the gang rape, she is depicted as dead inside and barely worth saving anymore (as her brother is trying to do), which only adds insult to injury.


This.

I don't mind that she was, in the end, not saved. I don't even mind that she was quickly transformed from a tough woman to a total wreck (who am I to say that such horrific experiences will not do that to anyone?). What I mind is the universal thought in the books that once this happens, there's no point in trying to help the woman. xx(

Excellent review. Strengthens my resolve to reread at least part of TtH before starting. Thanks. *NM* - 01/07/2010 02:08:40 AM 972 Views
You don't need to reread TtH, actually. Reaper's Gale is much more relevant. - 01/07/2010 09:44:43 AM 1267 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 1815 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
