glaring misogyny ruins otherwise good story
Female character's abilities are questioned and scrutinized. She is heavily mansplained to and supposed to be grateful.
Also of note is female characters are described by their physical appearance more than men are. It's really gross. Who is this author?
There's a scene in chapter 7 where someone walks into a room, and sees a bunch of officers: officer X, officer Y, a thin matronly woman who is an admiral, and officer Z. The men are just described by their ranks. The woman has extra information about what she looks like. Come on.
Not crazy about how he narrates women. Does annoying higher pitched whiney voice.
I"m only partially through the book, not sure if I will finish. I'm put off by the way gender is dealt with.
