Domes of Fire (Tamuli) - David Eddings Why did I even read this far into this saga? The books are sexist, racialist, and all the characters are unrelentingly 2-D. Still, I keep plugging away, managing to be reasonably entertained along the way. They're bestsellers, so I guess he's got something going.
Still, Edding's insistence on portraying every single character's behavior, intelligence level and traits as determined by their membership in an ethnic group is really quite disturbing.
And all of his women are either strong, powerful yet motherly archetypes, or delicate flowers to be protected.... or examples of a few other stereotypes out there....
oh well...
