He's the most disturbingly misogynistic writer I've seen since Terry Goodkind.
Goodkind does come off that way a bit, but his writing style has a "pop music" type effect, very easy to read. Not the best in the world, and not for everyone but I read the entire "The Sword of Truth" series... *shrug*

I'm surprised, most people I've talked loved the first few books and found it quickly delved into "extreme" territory. Personally I found it a belabored affair of immature torture porn fetishisms and straight up madness like the evil chicken.

Edge of genre writers in general seem to always be on the cusp of weird/madness, maybe its just the old cliche about creativity being a product of extreme emotions. I know many authors claim they did their best writing in the hardest times of their lives. Probably a good reason to never read up on your favorite author I guess!
