I was really excited recently to start A Spell for Chameleon, book one of the massive Xanth series by Piers Anthony. Sly B picked it up for me months ago at our favorite used bookstore, and I just knew that reading it would boost my geek cred. The Dragon Page Cover to Cover podcast mentions the Xanth series often, and I had to find out what I'd been missing.
I only got through about 50 pages before I had to quit the book altogether. They misogyny and objectification of women was a lot more than this riot grrl could stomach, fantasy classic or no. In the 50 pages I read, the main character Bink fell in love with hot babe in his village; stood in for a farmer in an attempted rape trial and sympathized with the farmer because of the victim's hotness; got a boner while getting a lift from a hot, buxom centaur; and others.
I know that nerdy guys fantasizing about hot women falling all over them is a ugly stereotype. However, this book is about and for nerdy guys with hot women (and other female creatures) falling all over them. Come on fellas.
