the forbidden scroll Reviews
This time I have to skew a “little negative” my dear friend on this book. The storyline itself is great. However, the source material which is the original banned scroll is a tad too misogynistic for my liking.I know the point that the author is trying to make but it’s the subject matter of the debate that bothered me. I also will agree with the author that the Greeks were misogynistic but, as a woman, the debate (which is not the story) just bothered me too much for me to really enjoy the story.I agree, in concept, that women are allowed to be more sexually fluid than men. I read this from an article about the book. So, I am drawing from outside the book in my review.I was just wondering were there points in the debate that didn’t stigmatize women so negatively that you could have used?Never the less, I know this is my “own issue” and not really about the storyline. So, besides that, it was a nice short story.I do like the fact that you included the entire original scroll as a side note for people to read. I found that quite interesting, too.After reading the original scroll, I felt biased because it was really that part that bothered me more so than the book.
