I swear to God, if I start reading one more book with a female protagonist who:
- Has an IQ of 36D (or)
- Is a raving sociopath because, clearly, violence = empowerment (NOT)
I am going to take that book, drive to the God Damn rifle range, hang it from the 200 yard berm beam and shoot it full of 155 grain hollow-points at over 2,750 feet per second.
Then I will post the picture here on my blog.
Not that this will change anything, but boy-howdy, will I feel a lot better.
Maybe I should just give up on urban fantasy. Although I did like Toni Andrew’s Mercy book, so the genre can’t be a total wash.
I don’t get it. These books are written by women, with women agents, with women editors. Yet they are some of the most glaring anti-women books around.
