Damsel by Elana K. Arnold
- Plot- or character-driven? Character
- Strong character development? No
- Loveable characters? No
- Diverse cast of characters? No
- Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated
Genuinely a terrible read. It’s feminism and criticism of patriarchy were about as deep as a shallow puddle, and though the author fancies herself to have Brechtian qualities of making people uncomfortable to make them consider, she really only made me uncomfortable in her extra and unnecessarily crude language.
Moderate: Physical abuse, Sexual assault, and Domestic abuse
Just… so bad.
