After reading the book Deborah mentioned, I became very suspicious and 
started never 
assuming gender in a book. I think Megan Whalen Turner's "The Thief" doesn't 
make it clear 
forthe first chunk of the book (but haven't re-read it for a while).
Yes, I had this definite feeling as I started the book "The author is trying 
to do something clever here," and that was the first thing I thought she might 
be doing, i.e. disguising the sex of the main character. But then it became 
obvious that that wasn't the specific clever thing she was trying to do (not 
that I knew until later what it actually *was*).
