Free is pretty worthless if you can't read bad OCR text and/or French. This was useless to me. If you ask me, Google needs to get some better text recognition software--I doubt even a native French speaker could make much sense of this mess.

Dean Goranites of the BookReviewersClub reviewed the book "Lysistrata."
This book tells the story of a woman named Lysistrata during the Peloponnesian War. Because she was tired of waiting for her husband to return from war along with all the other women in her village, and because she was getting too old to have children, Lysistrata came up with an idea to end the war. She brought all the women together and held a conference. At the conference, the women decided that in order to stop the war, they would withhold sex from their men. So, they locked themselves up in the Acropolis and told their men that they would get nothing until the war was over. Because of that, the book was great fun.
There seems to be a lot of debate on whether this is a feminist book or not. Still, Dean highly recommends reading it. To quote, "It's amazing."
All in all, he gave this book 5 stars.
