This is not a book, it is a deck of cards. From the back of the box:
Find out once and for all which is the superior sex. This fun, fast-paced party game tests one's knowledge of the opposite sex with gender-based questions. Does she know the usual number of lugs on a wheel? Can he think of the best way to stop a run in stockings? The winner is the first to correctly answer three consecutive questions covering a wide range of topics.
A card game version of the poplar radio contests played around the world, Battle of the Sexes(TM) can fill a room and an evening with fun, laughter and light-hearted play.
I'm 27 years old and I still think this is a great book! The characters have a real personality and you find yourself attached them awful cute. And of course there is a bit of humor in the book as well!
Bartholomew Gill is one of my favorite authors. Peter McGarr is one of Ireland's top homicide investigaters (with help from his team...and his wife of course!) These mysteries, while having Peter McGarr as the central and main character, also delves into the lives of the secondary characters as well. Creates a whole family of characters to adore!
I know there is alot of controversy with this book, or the trilogy more so, and I know the point was to make this book tame to rope people in to the whole series, which I have not finished yet. But to be honest, to me it reads like any other fiction story. If you don't know what symbolism the other is trying to get across, then I don't think it really matters. It is a good story.
