Am I the only one who was offended by the title of this thread?
So what if The Tommyknockers is a feminist novel? It's not, but if it were, would the genre have stopped you from picking it up and reading it?
Bobbi's menstrual irregularities are important to the story development and what ultimately happens to her.
Grow up and show some respect to women everywhere by ceasing your use of veiled insults to feminists, menstruating or not.
I understand where you are coming from, but I honestly don't believe the OP meant any offense. More than likely he was attempting to be funny. I posted on this thread to express my thoughts about how I am having a hard time getting into the book. Sorry if I lead to any offense. It was certainly not meant. BTW, after some reading today, the story is finally starting to grab ahold of me.
