Saberhagen - Golden Fleece

April 02, 2004

I just finished Fred Saberhagen's The Golden Fleece.

I do not know why I finished it. I don't much care for the story of Jason and the Argonauts; I don't much care for the current trend in hack speculative fiction in which folks re-write the same few stories from history and mythology; I despise bad writing.

But, I did end up turning the pages. For the first half I was curious what Saberhagen was doing with his Proteus character, for the second half I was curious to see if the ending was going to be as terribly sad as in the original myth.

I won't be reading more of this series. I don't mind reading YA books from time to time, but this was so simple as to be stupid.
