Book Review: Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham

Title: Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned"
Author: Lena Dunham
Published: 2014
Language: English
Pages: 265
Rating: 4/5

Lena Dunham is an acclaimed creator, producer and writer. In this essay collection, she tells of her experiences of falling in love, feeling alone, growing up, coming to terms with your body, having to prove yourself and all those things that's led her to where she is today.

This was something completely new to me, as I have never really read an autobiography and as I very rarely read non-fiction. So I was a mix of curious and apprehensive going in.

And I'm happy to inform you, I was positively surprised! I thought this was honest, raw, and incredibly funny. I thought the author had a really clear voice, and I thought the stories were intimiate and surprising.

Though I could not relate to everything, I thought it was fascinating to read about the life of someone quite different from myself.

I would recommend this to someone who wants to read a bunch of sometimes funny, sometimes painful, sometimes wonderful stories. I also think this is quite an important read for women, because I think all of us can find something to relate to in this.
