A Short History of Women by Kate Walberg

I really wish that on the Goodreads ranking system, there was one less than 1 star--say a black hole rating. This book deserves it. It is a navel-gazing introspection of 4 generations of self-centered whiners. Even the sentence structure is gratuitously obtuse; it is as if the writer tried to arrange the words in each sentence to accomodate the most commas possible. Finally, I kept waiting for some character redemption but none was forthcoming. I finished the book as an act of self-disciple. I wonder if it will count as time spent in purgatory.
