I find myself feeling rather ambivalent about this one. The horror of the events that this novel is based on is unspeakable, and it is a story that deserves careful and respectful telling. The framing of this story is both ironic and tone deaf, though. In a tale about women, by a woman, and concerning women, the narrator is made to be a man. The irony is intentional, I believe, because of the universality of male authority in this society.
