it was ok
Read in January, 1991

I read this while in high school (probably when I was 15), and the stars I gave it are purely an emotional reaction to my memory of that book. I didn't like it because it disturbed and almost frightened me. I could not identify with the angry women in the story and their oppressive male counterparts, except as I'd seen such people depicted in other media. I can't speak to the craft of the novel, since I was too young/uninformed to take that context with me while I read it. That said, it has clearly stuck with me for years, since a casual comment by a co-worker just brought it to mind.
