The Secret History of Wonder Woman – Jill Lepore – Book Challenge

Lepore, Jill. 2014. The Secret History of Wonder Woman. New York: Knopf.

I find it hard to wax poetic about things when I am utterly disgusted by them. I can’t find the energy to write in complete thoughts when confronted with drivel. Due in part to my disappointment and inability to give up, this took a lot longer to write than I thought it would.

I love comic books.

I love heros.

I love anti-heroes even more.

This book has none of that.

By the time Lepore glossed over the forced aspect of what became a permanent polygamous relationship I wanted to throw the book across the room.

Half way through the book and I knew who really wrote Wonder Woman.

This book is a joke.
