bibliophilia

For all of you who go on about it...

...there are so many OTHER reasons, aside from the main character's having committed rape, to hate Stephen R. Donaldson's fantasy opus.
It's clumsily written- it's full of insert-your-own-parable bullshit. Meanwhile, the character actually undergoes remorse for the act of rape, and tries to look after the child he begat through this act.
I'd call that one of the lesser of the many flaws of the series, myself.
