It's an interesting read that raises some poignant questions about feminism. It's written from the first person perspective and details many relationships in Meredith's life -- her partner, her sons, her ex-husband, her lovers. It's emotionally honest and made me think.

I really wanted to love this book but I just found it hard to relate to. I think there is some benefit in analysing your past and your relationships along with your politics, but whether it requires a book to be published about what you think and feel I'm not sure...

I found it interesting from a feminist perspective, but her life is so different to mine and her experiences so different that on a personal level I couldn't really relate to a lot of it.

I feel really ambivalent about this book. Which might really just be me saying I feel ambivalent about second wave feminism. The writing is fine. I did read it somewhat voraciously, so maybe that says something good about it?

An interesting book. I couldn't relate to much of it, but I appreciated the personal perspective on early feminism.
