it was ok

I liked how we heard this story from both Meri's and Delia's point of view. I feel like this helped me to better understand each woman, though I didn't always sympathize with them. I did not like, however, how Miller portrayed these women. It took nearly the entire book for both women to overcome their "weaknesses", and by then it was a moot point. And the culminating scene with Meri and Tom? Ew. I understand what Miller is trying to say about women, love, sexuality, and marriage with this novel, but I can't say I appreciate her thought process.
