I really don't know what to rate this. Masterpieces is really short so I read it in one sitting. It has a lot of interesting plot and characters, but at the same time it is so aggravating and provoking. It is very in your face about misogyny and pornography and Sarah Daniels opinions on the fact.
As most plays go, it probably would have been a lot better watched as opposed to read.
I just feel very meh after reading this. Don't really care either way.

I actually really enjoyed this book - it made me laugh out loud whilst dealing with issues that are still relevant today. The amount of characters sometimes made it quite confusing to piece the story together, but they were well written and real.
It's such a quick read and an interesting one, I'd recommend any feminist or drama geek to give it a read.
