Mother of Storms / by John Barnes

Mother of Storms - John Barnes

Six pages in, I get to read about the bloody and violent rape and murder of a minor girl.  Nine pages in, a lovely gentleman refers to a woman as, "some upper-level bitch."  "It's gotta be some woman," that gives this prince his "shit assignments."  Because obviously a man would see his worth, right?  On pages 10-14 I get to read about some sex-obsessed guy fantasizing about sex with his girlfriend.  During this time he muses with respect to her, "There's a lot of easier ass in the world." 


I'm sorry, that's just too much misogyny before breakfast.  Especially in a book that's supposedly about really bad weather.
