    There seems to be 2 types of people reviewing this book 1 Those who have read it many years ago as a teenager but are afraid to give an honest review as they have teenage kids now and spouses who may not like what they really thought about it at the time.2 Those with an agenda as this book was a controversy back in the bra burning days It seems as though women can read historical romance novels full of sex scenes and tight corsets and restrictive clothing that was nothing less than a lac There seems to be 2 types of people reviewing this book 1 Those who have read it many years ago as a teenager but are afraid to give an honest review as they have teenage kids now and spouses who may not like what they really thought about it at the time.2 Those with an agenda as this book was a controversy back in the bra burning days It seems as though women can read historical romance novels full of sex scenes and tight corse...

    I can t remember these books very well other than they were horribly sexist and I had to hide from my Mom when I read them I think if I went back to read them again I d be shocked and horrified, so I will leave it to my teenage affection and not sully the memory of enjoying the smut.

    Ah, yes the Gor series At first it was just sort of Nietzchean Burroughsian sword and sandal escapism with an overtone of sexist pigotry, but then he spun off into porno world building Not that I don t like porn I do , but the series became increasingly bizarre and the author s sexual obsessions gotandobvious as the series progressed It is kind of like watching a slow motion train wreck.If he d written them as porn, he would have been long sinc...

    I have two very good reasons as to why this book has a two star rating.First reason The author can spell words correctly and understands basic grammar.Second reason One star books are best left to disappear into the void The Tarnsman of Gor deserves to continue to exist In fact, I think it should be required reading This book should be the epitome of misogynistic literature It needs to be the piece of literature if you can call it that that we use ten, a hundred, a thousand years down th I have two very good reasons as to why this book has a two star rating.First reason The author can spell words correctly and understands basic grammar.Second reason One star books are best left to disappear into the void The Tarnsman of Gor deserves to continue to exist In fact, I think it should be required reading This book should be the epitome of misogynistic literature It needs to be the piece of literature if you can call it that that we use ten, a hundred, a thousand years down the road to show a future society why feminists are needed in society If you have not read this book, you cannot begin to imagine the horrendous levels of misogyny in this book Instead, I ll leave you with this one gem A woman, depicted to be on the highest tier of beauty and from a noble hou...
