Why are authors frequently constrained to put extensive caveats about a book’s content on the product description page to warn off anyone who might become the slightest bit discomfited by a theme, a scene, a character?
Since when does an author’s character have to conform to “mental health standards” as described and adhered to by a reviewer? Mind, this has nothing to do with the credibility or motivation of said character, but everything to do with that reviewer’s world view and the expectations that under condition X, all characters *should* behave like XYZ. To wit:
“If you believe communication is important, then (insert character name) should have…”
“No character should make that same mistake twice…”
Triggers. Is this the newest form of censorship?
