    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"
    "Pretty good book"

    I had never heard about Caitlin Moran in the past but am a memoir junkie. This was a great surprise. She's very unique and has some fantastic stories.

  • Fat Is the New 30: The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Coping with (the Crappy Parts of) Life

    The Sweet Potato Queens are back and bawdier than ever in Southern belle extraordinaire Jill Conner Browne’s ninth edition of the hysterical series. Having experienced pretty much ALL of the crappy parts of life, Browne feels it is her duty to render whatever assistance she can to her fellow sufferers - and she does so in her own inimitable fashion.

    Her father taught her there are very few situations in life that we really and truly cannot change, and it is up to us to figure out how to either make fun OUT of them - or make fun OF them.

    Kathy says: "A cure for what ails ya"

    What made the experience of listening to Fat Is the New 30 the most enjoyable?

    I thought the book was touching and funny.


    What does Jill Conner Browne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing the real emotion in her voice. Nothing beats the writer narrating.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part about her mom was very touching.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Jill Conner Brownes books. This one was not my favorite but it was still worth a listen.

    Fans of the #1 bests eller Sh*t My Dad Says will recognize the always patient voice of Justin Halpern's dad as it crackles through this hysterical new audiobook. The story begins when Justin announces that he's decided to propose to his girlfriend. "You've been dating her for four years," his dad replies. "It ain't like you found a parallel fucking universe."

    Jay says: "Funny but nowhere like the the first book."
    "Pretty funny"

    Story
    (462)

    The two-time Emmy Award-winning actress has written her first book, a surprisingly raw and triumphant memoir that is outrageous, moving, sweet, tragic, and heartbreakingly honest. Guts is a true triumph - a memoir that manages to be as frank and revealing as Augusten Burroughs, yet as hilarious and witty as David Sedaris.

    John Campbell says: "Whiskey and cigarettes have never sounded so good."
    "Better than expected."

    No

    There was laughter and sadness.


    Any additional comments?

    Better than expected. I quite enjoyed it.

    Throughout her stories of misplaced toys, temper tantrums, and experiences as a physical education teacher, Christine offers observations that will ring true with all mothers. In short, this book offers a virtual high five to women for the million things they manage to miraculously get done.

    Would you try another book from Christine Carr and/or Marie Kopan?

    Never - Marie Kopan
    Hard to say about Christine Carr because I didn't get past the first chapter.


    What was most disappointing about Christine Carr’s story?

    Sad to say I can't really review the story because the narration was so bad.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marie Kopan?

    Pretty much anyone


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Completely disappointed... waste of money.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel bad because I don't really know how the book was because I couldn't get past the first chapter, the narration was to terrible and distracting. I've read reviews before about how people couldn't finish a book because of the narration and thought; well if the books great how much could that matter. Well this audio book answered it for me. There was no way I could even make it past the first chapter. Make me very leery about buying other audiobooks. Total waste of money.
