Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

This story is almost all infodump. There is no plot; the narrator has no goals and just drifts from episode to episode.

The basic idea--that if women could take genes from multiple men then society would revolt and collapse--it hard to believe.

The narrator's condescending attitude towards men gets old fast.
