    Story
    (372)

    Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

    L. Calder says: "Hysterical manual for the 21st century woman"
    "A skilled way to bring sensitive topics forward!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to How to Be a Woman the most enjoyable?

    Moran has the hability to dedramatize sensitive issues - which is positive! It was my first experience listening to an audiobook, and walking around while listening to her made me feel like I had a really cool friend telling me her really interesting story with lots of jokes and important points. I definately recognized myself in a lot of what she talked about and enjoyed how she gave a warm human dimension to everything she said. Yes, there are a bunch of swear words *everywhere*, but really, they're part of the performance! I'd absolutely recommand that book to a friend.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Be a Woman?

    I like the chapter about strip clubs. It gave me a new perspective on them.


    Have you listened to any of Caitlin Moran’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time for me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Too much information... in a good way!
