Hi Sally, thank you for your thoughts. Yes I know the violence in Entangled is a tough and repellent read. Believe me it was a tough write too! But none of the horrors described there were made up. I'm sorry to say that these are all things that human beings have done to one another in different places at different periods of history. If we are to confront evil and darkness it is important we bring it into the light and face up to it. As a species we have the ability to learn from our mistakes, but if we shut our eyes and ears and pretend that all is rosy in the human garden, then we deny ourselves the opportunity to learn. My approach in Entangled was to put all this front and centre. My apologies that it offended you, Sally, but being offended about it doesn't change the reality of human history -- both bad and good.
