it was ok
Read in April, 2008

Couldn't resist this one, what with all the gender & power issues swirling around Hillary Clinton's bid for President. Also must read anything given a thumbs-up by Margaret Atwood because she is an absolute literary goddess a mon avis... But in the end I felt that Fraser attempted to cover too much ground between the covers of this book. I would have appreciated reading about fewer subject but in greater depth. Also, as a non-Brit, I was not previously familiar with the story of Boadiccea and it was difficult to piece it all together from the author's non-linear storytelling. Nevertheless, it was an informative read, and it has profoundly influenced my perspective as an observer of (and a voter for!) women in positions of leadership.
