the problem for dudes is that its written by a woman. in the sci-fi/fantasy genre, i am under the impression that women are able to weave TREMENDOUS stories that really grab you and then at the end just crap all over the story. i feel that this is because a good ending isn't necessary to most women. they just want the emotional highs and lows of the journey to get there.
now men are just as capable of awful endings (see cormac mccarthy) but it just seems the norm for me when i see a woman author.
