I'm a bit embarrassed to have this on my virtual shelf. It was okay, although not particularly revelatory--I think I only had a couple of "ah-ha" moments while reading it (although I can't remember what they were now). My "eh" assessment of it could possibly be colored by the fact that the library's edition had the cover on upside down, thus causing me to look mildly retarded every time I picked it up to read. Of course I was only reading it in the privacy of my own living room, but it did add insult to metaphorical injury to look stupid while getting riled up reading about the thorny issues involved in gender relations.
