This book started off funny and interesting, but as the book wore on, I really began to dislike the Heroine, Emma, and the rehashed jokes/witty sayings. By the end of the book, she met my definition of TSTL. She made me angry how wishy-washy she was towards Philip, also. She was doggedly tenacious on all she wanted changed and NOW! And why did she think she wanted Stanton the entire time of the book? Ick. When it got towards the end, they'd (her and Philip) already made love several times, and yet she was determined to end it with Philip without even connecting all the dots. Girl...did you even think you could be pregnant by Philip before you want to humiliate him before the entire ton? Ooof!
Contrasting her to Philip, who was near perfect. I mean, a spy, a secret hero/Superman/rescuer, and a man way ahead of his time to agree with Emma on everything she wanted in regards to social change. And then the ending was rushed and we didn't get to find out what happened to a few people. Very disappointed by the end of the book!
