I started a serie in three books from Nora Roberts and are now on the second book.
I had never read anything by Nora Roberts before and will probably not do it again either when I'm done with this series because the author herself is a sexist from head to toe!
Each and every page describes what is typical male or female, and usually it's really nasty things like for example "all men share the same brain and that's why are they can't think very far" or that "women can not handle furniture construction because that's a job for a "real man". Comments like this from the characthers are not unusual:
- Come on boys, we do not need a woman with us today, let the girls have their women's talk and we'll do the real job.
I just puke in my mouth a little everytime something like that comes up. It's really a shame because otherwise the books are well written and exciting, but Nora's view of masculinity, antiquated ideals and femininity really shines through too well for my liking ..
Do any of you read her books and have you noticed this?
