    Story
    (239)

    With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, not yet. This is my first review and I am feeling responsible to share my thoughts. I am not completely through the book yet but that is mostly due to the fact that it is not engaging or even really very funny. Perhaps the written version would be more entertaining than the audio; I do not know but I am struggling to even relate to the author and I am female.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Ephron’s story?

    So far the author/reader's voice and lack of energy. I really thought I would be able to relate to the topic and find the humor/silliness in it all but frankly, the delivery and flatness of her voice doesn't do it for me.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nora Ephron?

    Yes. That may have helped immensely!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Depends... but when thinking about answering that question, all I can think about is the show 'Sex in the City' and the answer that comes to mind is .... NO.


    Any additional comments?

    I will update this review when I am through the book but the question I have at the moment that is lingering is; Can I return this and get a different book?
