The Female Persuasion, by Meg Wolitzer

Two of 5 stars

I had a love/hate relationship with The Interestings but leaned toward love because the end was great. With The Female Persuasion I really liked the beginning (although the history of the women’s movement was a bit tedious and felt unnecessary) but then the rest of the book was a snoozefest. I never loved any character, although I liked Faith at first and would have liked to know Zee more. I hated how the women betrayed each other, and Faith’s betrayal was the absolute worst and made little sense. I don’t feel I learned anything from this book and I got very little enjoyment.

I listened to the Audible version, and the narrator was great as always, it’s only the story that I had huge issues with. I was glad when it was over and that says the most.
