This book would have annoyed Knox - full marks,
By A Customer
This review is from: Monstrous Regiment (Discworld Novels) (Hardcover)
I'm sure that John Knox, back in the 16th century, would have been made apoplectic by this story - which is all to the good. His 'First blast of the trumpet against the Monstrous Regiment of Women', aimed at Elizabeth of England (and other powerful women of the time such as Mary of Scotland and Catherine de Medici of France) purported to show how women in authority were unnatural and forbidden by (Christian) scripture. While he was only a product of his time (and a disordered spleen, I suspect) it's a theme gently and enjoyably parodied in the great TP's latest (adult) work.
