This was a fast read and the narrative voice was funny and entertaining. Basically there is a revolution and women run the world. There are radical and counterrevolutionary movements afoot. The main character Lisa finds herself in the middle of it all--and as a twenty-something she is rightfully a bit confused. The only problem is that the author seems to have a very shallow view of feminism. These are sort of academic/mainstream feminisms at play. The radicals are into violence, the mainstream is gullible and the counter-revs are rednecks. So the characters are interesting, the world is interesting, but the feminism is...well not that interesting. I didn't feel that any of the characters were actually feminist, they were just what the authors thinks feminists look like from the outside.
