here I am commenting again, but...my heart breaks for this reviewer. By assuming that ASoIaF is "boy fiction", she is denying herself the experience of discovering such characters like Daenerys, Arya, Sansa, and Brienne.

In all the fiction I've read over the years, I'd be hard-pressed to find female characters as strong, as compelling, and as complex and flawed as the Dragon Queen and The Maid of Tarth.

People who dismiss the whole genre out of hand are only cheating themselves.

GoT aside, I can also think of a dozen well-written fantasy series written by women, which are centered on female characters and are also terribly sexually explicit. That reviewer is missing out on some of some hot readin'.

Oh, well, it is her loss.
