Reply To: On the TV portrayal of the "Strong Woman"


Haven’t had a chance to say this elsewhere, but Hero and the Crown was one of my favorite books growing up. I can’t quite remember when I first read it, but it probably wasn’t long after it was published, and I’m pretty sure it was one of the books that laid the foundation of my interest in fantasy and genre literature. I was desperate for more books like that, and I would periodically check the library book shelves for anything else by her. I was not interested in her fairy-tale retells, but I see now she has published other books and fully intend to pick her up again. And should probably reread Hero.
