There's very little in common...

..between The Hobbit and Martin's books. She clearly has never read The Hobbit, and is simply equating all "fantasy". I am actually confused by her review... she doesn't exactly say that women do or do not love The Hobbit, just that she thinks women don't love fantasy and therefore HBO had to "tweak" its series to appeal to them, which is patronizing and silly.

I'm reminded of all the reviewers who said no women would go to LotR, despite the obvious fact that half or more of the people in the seats at the theatres were female.

Reviewers love to say these lofty-sounding things, whether they bear close scrutiny or not.

Join us in the Reading Room for LotR The Two Towers, Book IV!
