This is an OK review of the things you might have learned in college or high school. Very little new information, and an occasional screed about political correctness or feminism. I'm sure there are better books out there, but they're hard to find on audio.
And why they chose a British man to read the work of an American woman, I simply don't understand. It makes for some awkward comments, when he talks about America or being a woman.
I thought the book itself was wonderful. Enthralling, thought-provoking, well-written. But the reader was terrible! Listening to her smacking, as if she were trying to re-wet her mouth, every five seconds (other reviews called it swallowing) nearly drove me to drink. In addition, her horrible characterization of every male character in the book was rage-inducing. She made every male sound like a druggie surfer, and Kevin as a little boy sounded like someone making fun of a handicapped boy. Just the worst characterization I've ever heard. A terrible audio production.
But, as I said, wonderful book. I wish I'd read it instead of listened.
