i must have reached the part where it becomes a romance novel. since words like "rigid" and "musky" have started appearing with regularity i mean.

krakens, airships, pirates... why spoil your perfectly good sci-fi fantasy with such a rape-y hero? no really i am asking.

Vinaya Are you seriously alternating Cloud Atlas with The Iron Duke? Don't you feel schizophrenic?


message 2: by j (new) - rated it 3 stars

j nah. usually i have three or four books going at once. if cloud atlas had more rape scenes it might get slightly confusing though.


message 3: by Vinaya (new)

Vinaya Rape scenes? really? Wow, steampunk romance is darker than I thought! Is it one of those 'I'm the caveman and I'm irresistible' things, or outright rape?


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

I've found that in the romance genre, anytime there are pirates, there will be rape or near-rape. It's something about the sub-genre. The other steampunky romance, or romancey steampunk thing I read actually had pretty awesome gender roles. Made up for the otherwise bad prose.

j what else fits the category, ceridwen? i actually think TID has pretty decent prose, except for the sex scenes, which are as ludicrous as i always imagined.
