Men who Hate Women and Write About it

I just finished reading SHE and Casino Royale back to back, and am ready to try something a little less misogynistic. The two novels I have at hand are The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and A Series of Unfortunate Events II. And least the latter is more \"wryly misanthropic\" than targeted.

Mind you, I recently read an article in The New Yorker that makes a very good case for Larson as feminist, or at least not misogynist. On the other hand, it also argues that the books aren\'t very well written.

I recommend http://thehathorlegacy.com/category/books/ for reviews of female-friendly books. HTH!

Oh... and you might try Scott Westerfeld\'s Uglies/Pretties/Specials series.

Neither of those seemed very misogynist to me, though both did seem extremely misanthropic in wildly different ways. I also thought neither of them were as good as the hype, but ymmv.
