Terry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? posted 30 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionTerry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? by FuraxVZ, Candidate

Every time I read quotes from him, I'm shocked on how Randian they sound. His faith to Ayn Rand is obsessive.

Anyway, I guess I can agree that fantasy writers try to write more relevant themes than just swords and sorcery. Sure. Of course, his doom-and-gloom predictions of our 'civilization' cannot endure 'the kind of self-indulgent destruction of social fabric and family structure we are witnessing' from his 'study of history' sounds ridiculous.

And I thought the title of the post had more to do with his rape fantasy he writes in his books; again, like Rand, he has some skewed ideas of love and romance and sexual relations.

As for his books, I gave up long ago, even before he became a born-again Objectivist. Just poorly written and trite. view post
