911[Clive Cussler fan club] Re: My First CC book
- Jun 5, 2005It wasn't a sexual comment, it was sexist. I don't have the book
right in front of me at the moment to quote exactly, but it was
referring to Beverly Swain (one of the agents searching Rummel's
apartment) and a mirror. It said "As a woman, she was instinctively
drawn to it."
I just thought that was kind of sexist (not enough to make me steam,
but it jumped out at me). Not all women are narcissistic -
personally, I tend to avoid mirrors whenever possible! :)
Again, though, I love Clive Cussler's writing overall. That
sentence just stuck in my mind ever since I read it the first time.
