My My What A Big Swashbuckling Fantasy Rip Off We Have Here Buddy Read MMWABSFROWHHBR with my fellow inmates at the Scarlet Citadel That Was But Is No Longer Okay so I said pretty much everything I had to say about this delightful masterpiece in my fascinating pre review down there but I m afraid for you not for me that some things must be expanded and analyzed and stuff so here goes Let s see this book is supposed to be a Fantasy Classic Everyone following me so far Good Because it s not A Fantasy Classic I mean Okay so maybe it is a Classic Well to some people who read the book very wrong it obviously is But Fantasy HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh my dear shrimp I laughed so hard I nearly almost dislocated my exoskeleton Phew that was close But I digress Okay so when I started reading this book I expected Swashbuckling Fantasy As in a story rife with swords magic and uite possibly adorable pets such as dragons and the like You know something or less like this Hey I said or less okaySo No bloody magic no bloody dragons or even moderately vaguely supernatural creatures of any kind not even I don t know something as basic as a screwed up planetary system with two suns and three moons and stuff no bloody shrimping Fantasy This is an outrage and stuff This book is fiction plain and simple Call it Alternate History if you re feeling terribly bold and audacious and want to stretch things a bit further And Super Extra Boring Fiction SEBF at that But on that later Now I m in a particularly benevolent mood today so I will most graciously tell you how and why this came to be classified as Fantasy Fishy Publishing Shenanigans Inc of course Get that it turns out Ellen Kushner initially tried to sell her story as a work of fiction you know fiction as in FICTION Only that she never got anywhere Enter a publishereditor who should be glad I forgot his name otherwise I would most certainly have unleashed the murderous crustaceans on him who convinces Kushner to have the book marketed and released as Fantasy And bingo A star rip off is born Yay and stuffOkay the good news is brace your little selves for this might come as a shock there are actually swords in this book I kid you not As for swashbuckling well there s lots of endless talk about swashbuckling yes And a couple of guys vaguely train to become Super Extra Good Swashbuckling Types SEGST Which is kinda sorta a total waste of their boring time since they don t get to do any actual fighting Well maybe one of them does Once And he s such a gifted badass SEGST that all he has to do is wave his sword around a bit not too much he wouldn t want to overexert himself and tada Everybody scrams As if by magic and stuff Which would make this book Fantasy which it is not so it is notAnyway the disgusting truth is I could have gotten over my initial discombobulation upon discovering both the non Fantasy fantasy and non Swashbuckling swashbuckling aspects of this book and ended up liking it a little Maybe Yes I most definitely could have Had the story had been original fun entertaining and generally enjoyable But it wasn t it wasn t it wasn t and generally it wasn t So I didn t I m beginning to think my 2 star rating is a horribly generous one just so you knowSo what was this book like you ask Apart from dull uninteresting and a total snoozefest you mean I don t know one of the most soporific failed comedy melodrama of manners ever maybe Yeah I guess you could say that The lack of both originality and complexity of the world is confounding The plot with political schemes and devious ploys galore had the potential to be deliciously delicious But it was confusing contrived and badly executed so it wasn t Deliciously delicious I mean Oh and by the way Ms Kushner for help with your everyday scheming and backstabbing scenes you might want to call 1 800 Devious Bastards R Us the Glen Cook emergency hotline Let s see what else Oh yes the most endearing characters They are flat one dimensional and unlikeable as fish And the most headache inducing bunch of blabbermouths in the history of headache inducing bunch of blabbermouths Why this book doesn t come with an XXL pack of extra strength aspirin is one of the greatest mysteries of our time if you ask me Anyway the strange thing about the characters is that they all seem to be one and the same as if the author had created one character and cloned it to infinity Which wouldn t be a problem if said characters were even moderately charismatic But you should know how this goes by now they weren t so they weren tNow We come to what must be one of the weirdest things about this book The portrayal of homosexuality and bisexuality First it s fairly cartoonish and heavy handed which might have something to do with the fact that this book was published in the late 1980s and was one of the first of its kind to feature homosexual characters extensively And second all the men in the story are either homosexual or bisexual while all the women are heterosexual Which makes me feel kinda sortaNow if someone would mercifully explain to me if there is a reason for that and if such is the case what said reason might possibly be I would be most full of grate So thank thee kindly in advance and stuff Nefarious Last Words NLW want to read actual gloriously glorious swashbuckling material Pick up any bloody shrimping classic in the genre

review nonsense Is this Fantasy Nope Is this original Nope Is this entertaining Nope Are any of the characters even moderately likeable Nope Is this a clich d as fish comedy of manners Yep Is this the cure for insomnia Yep Is every single character flatter than my favorite herd of ironing boards Yep Is the fact that only the male characters in the story are gaybisexual while all the women are heterosexual as shrimp Super Extra Weird SEW Yep Is doing Look Ma No Hands Push Pups LMNHPU wayyyyyy titillating than reading this book Oh hell yeah Full review to magically appear post haste and
