This is probably my favorite of the Gor books, but I must admit I read the first two, then jumped ahead to the ones written from female's perspectives.

Sometimes the writing style bugs me. Most of the characters have the same speech patterns, although that could be just a matter of culture, and I think in one of the books they establish that slaves are trained that way. Other times, the writing feels like it was really translated from Gorean.

I'm not fond of the way Norman interrupts a tender moment between a man and his slave with his philosophies on the nature of men and women, or when he goes on and on with descriptions of animals or customs or some other aspect of everyday life on Gor that is similar to what's going on right now, but not really important to the rest of the book. This late in the series it doesn't happen so much, but you wont miss much skimming past and getting back to the story.

This book was so terrible. Full of pages-long rants of the evils of liberalism and educated women. The occaisional salaciousness didn't make up for how BAD it was. Poorly edited, too.
