    There are sections that drag terribly, however many parts force the reader to think outside the politically correct box. These aren't for timid readers.

    lots of info dumps and word for word repetitions in the prose. i read the first one just because i wanted to see how bad it was. the idea of giant bird mounts with steel claws is pretty cool though.

    I don't understand why this is on the list ... how does it "blow your mind"?

    I actually read a Gor book (possibly no. 11) years ago just to find out if they really were that bad. They are. And I don'nt mind some well written and reasonably intelligent BDSM with my fantasy. That would be empasis on some, well written as well as reasonably intelligent.

    Gor is male revenge for Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Oath of the Renunciates" arc in the Darkover series. Read it, if you want to be disgusted in the gender-opposite direction. Reading Bradley first, then Gor afterward, will have you cheering on Norman's male protagonists as they show those uppity females exactly where their proper place is.
