Heard a great interview with George R.R. Martin recently where he talked about how people get angry about all the gratuitous sex in his novels. His response was that there are lots of gratuitous things in his novels (sex, violence, even feasting) if you define gratuitous as something that doesn't advance the plot. But just because something doesn't advance the plot doesn't mean it shouldn't be in the book. Xinemus's blinding showed us a lot about his character, as well as about Akka, Proyas, and Esmenet. All of that plus what you just mentioned seems like a good enough reason for its inclusion to me. view post
