Recommended to Kricket by: April
Read from September 16 to 22, 2010, read count: 1

an entertaining satire intended to ridicule the way our society treats gender. in egalsund, women have the power and men wear silly undergarments, long for romance and children, and struggle with feeling unfulfilled. brantenberg's aim is to point out that both extremes are wrong, and she has fun doing it. some of the long-winded passages on egalian history didn't do much for me, but overall i was amused and intrigued.
