I have rated this book a five star because it probably deserves it. It was very well written and her character portrayal was very well done. Having said that I found the content extremely confronting - perhaps that is the desired effect. I certainly did not laugh hilariously, nor did I love the characters. I guess confronting the fact that women now feel that their feminism also requires them to behave as though they have absolutely no sexual constraints doesn't sit well with me. I have quite a large circle of friends and I can honestly say that through frank discussion, none of us feel like walking up to a guy in a bar purely with the intent for sexual gratification. Sorry ladies, but if this is feminism - count me out! I found Dawn's characters to be singularly selfish and self-absorbed without care for consequences or who they hurt by their actions - parents, children. Okay ladies, be free, accept no limits to your capabilities, but sleeping around as the desire arises - no I can't see how that helps women be treated as equal, intelligent, worthwhile human beings who can be respected and indeed be potential leaders in our world.
It was not as funny as I thought but I couldn't put it down. Buying a copy for my 20 something daughter. The internet is such a fantastic tool, but it can destroy you to. This book sends a message that you can control it rather than it control you. Loved the concepts and loved the book. Buy it! Read it! Fantastic!
A story well written, poignant, humorous, and real. In this society of cyber communication I think the strong underlying, at times obvious messages are a gift for one and all. A really entertaining tale delivering a swift kick where we need it most. Well done to the author. Congrats
