I enjoyed this a great deal -- where in Emery we get details about girls redecorating rooms and sewing square dance skirts, here we get changing tires, rebuilding engines and cleaning guns.

The book is still tremedously sexist, IMO. Susan is the author's own female insert. I can almost hear the idea of "if I were a girl, I'd be sensible -- not stupid like regular teen girls!" Susan is written as a level headed, sensible MAN in a girl's body. The other women in the book are all shallow harpies -- concerned only with appearances.

CLM You know he is WEB Griffin also, don't you?

Kelly I saw that in Wendy's review. I find the idea of a maltshop novel by the author of those Brotherhood of War novels to be hilarious.

CLM It's not just the juxtaposition but the fact that he is so negative about women!
