I wanted to comment on that review but couldn't find a place to do it when I read it yesterday. The "boy fiction" remark was the one that really got to me, too. Of the 30+ friends of mine who are fans of the books, probably a full half of them are women, some of them among the most rabid, too (and I'm not even counting the people I know from westeros.org).

Most of the people I've seen reading the books in public on the subway and buses in NYC over the years have been women - in fact all of them have, and it's served in a couple of occasions as a nice way for me to start a conversation with them ;-).

What I found really lame about the comment in the review is that it was made about the books as an assumption, without ever having read the source material herself, nor having done any research into what percentages of readers are male or female. She just made a pronouncement, "it must be like this!"

Meh.
