This book is a part memoir, part musing on what it's like to be a modern woman and the challenges of that.


Review:
This was a fascinating read and quite a funny book.

It says on the back of this that this is "part memoir, part rant", but to me this whole book feels like a rant. It discusses huge issues that Moran manages to bring down to earth, and it's not done in a careful way - it's rash, blunt and raw. She's a witty storyteller, that's for sure.

My main issue with this book is that I have a hard time connecting to Moran. Even though we have some obvious things in common, there's a disconnect that makes the whole thing less enjoyable. For me, a lot of the things discussed seems very one-sided and I wish the perspective had been a bit broader.

I had sort of imagined this book to be groundbreaking and fresh, and although I thought the memoir bit was fantastic, the whole "how to be a woman" part was a bit disappointing. I got some good laughs though, I'll say that.
