I didn't like it. Yes, I can see the point it was trying to make. And yes, the concept did truly scare me. It was so surreal at times because I could definitely picture these things happening in society. As a woman, this book unnerved me. However, this book was so oddly written. It used a weird prose, half poetic, half lazy and blunt. The story felt disjointed and all over the place. Also, why does the author hate quotation marks so badly? What did they ever do to her? I struggled to get through this. I wanted to give up several times but I was just waiting for it to get better. It never did really. The conclusion was very unsatisfying. This book was upsetting. Also, I'm not really sure why this is considered a feminist book when it doesn't really seem like the women ever came out on top. Whatever we do, don't let Trump read this book. I don't want him getting any ideas.
