did not like it
bookshelves: started-but-not-finished

The only word I use to describe this book is 'rapey'. There are so many consent issues it turns my stomach to think about. I don't understand how anyone can be truly turned on by it given that Sleeping Beauty is given exactly zero choice in this and is treated, quite literally, like an object to be bought, sold, and bartered like an expensive piece of furniture. Not okay.

Laura You are totally right. However, as you get farther in the series, men are treated just as poorly, for what it's worth. Not that it makes it any better, of course.
