The Chieftain (Telnarian Histories Book 1) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
John Norman regurgitating the same stuff I was asked to read The Chieftain as a prelude to reading John Norman’s latest novel, The Usurper. I hoped that the author had found a new direction for his writing but was disappointed to find that the new series of science fiction books are merely the Gor books revisited in a different context. All the Norman traits are there: endless repetition and the total sexual and other subjugation of women. Men are macho, strong and dominating; woman are soft, weak and to be treated as slaves. The plotline is largely irrelevant and the characters fairly one-dimensional. A disappointing read – but the author’s fans may well lap it up. I shall not be reading The Usurper – what’s the point?
