I guess I didn't know what type of book it was going to be and expected more of a story …. not someone complaining
That's a tough one, but likely
Irritating is all
Not really ….
Even though I am much younger than 60, I liked her old age musings and tips. I also felt that I could relate because I used to live in the NYC area, so I know the city. In the end she talks about starting her career, getting older, her parents, celebrities she knew, her apartments, her neighbors, her friends, her relationships, staying in shape, looking good... in short, humorous sections. Mini-essays. She's is not too cynical. She's very open. I'm kind of reminded of Amy Poehler's Yes Please. However, Nora has her own irreverent style and she says just what she thinks. I really like that she narrates herself. She has passed away so I was mindful of this while listening to her talk.
Listening to Nora narrate her book was a true joy! I'm not quite in the age demographic she is talking about, but I don't care this book was worth it! Gave me a glimpse of what I get to look forward too.
I've read this book many times, but listening to Nora Ephron read the essays brings new dimensions to each. Listening to these hysterically funny, poignant, real experiences defies Nora's death, through her living voice.
Nothing, it' just way to old for me
No more, this one was sad, funny and menopausal
Yes she did. She talked about death alot in her book. I kind of feel sorry for her, like she knows she's close to dying and she is just like the rest of us, worried about her appearances, weight issues, marriages and divorces, friends dying on her; and especially her neck
I love that every chapter is a short story.
No, this is my first time.
Women under 50 reading this book may not have experienced some of the subjects yet, but Nora Ephron has the writing ability to make anyone understand where she is coming from. If only I had this information 30 years ago. I would have bought that bikini and worn it everywhere for 5 years!
I've ever read or listened to. Save your money! Boring, Boring and Even More Boring. Truly one of the most ridiculous books out there.
