    I look at the progression of 5 star ratings by friends mostly women and wonder if it is a womanly weakness to rate a book 5 stars which deconstructs the world from the female perspective Is this visceral urge something to be ashamed of, something you must suppress to show due deference to standards of literary appraisal But then why don t I feel conflicted enough while handing out my 5 stars to those modern masterpieces writte
