Maybe I'm caught up in the news lately and more aware of derogatory attitudes toward woman but I found this book insulting to females. The only favorable women in the book is fictional, made up by two males. In the epilogue:
They don't bother asking after the mothers .........
The rest of the women are whores or give themselves too easily and are after the money or title of the central characters. The writing might have been good but I can't recommend.
