I had to stop reading this one, and I think I need to eschew older sci-fi. The cultural values of the times don't really sit well with me, and while ideas expressed in these classics may still hold some importance, I'm past being able to stomach the "old ways" of the men who wrote them.
The above was written in 2014, and in the years since I've mellowed a lot on that stance. We can't throw babies out with the bathwater; every piece of written work may have some gold hidden in the dross. It's critical to maintain an open-minded approach to reading. Had I continued to hold the same opinion I would never have found joy in the works of Howard or Lovecraft.
I also think I wrote that review on Goodreads just to virtue signal.
