    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"
    "Sooooo not what I expected"

    Would you try another book from Caitlin Moran and/or Caitlin Moran?

    Nope


    What could Caitlin Moran have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have a better story, leave the gross/shock factor to the horror genre, be funny...shall I go on?


    What about Caitlin Moran’s performance did you like?

    Did I say I liked it? No, I didn't. The performance was fine, animated, up tempo.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How to Be a Woman?

    Well, since I decided my time is not worth wasting on this story, I'd say everything up until I gave up. In my defense, I gave it a good shot. I've only got 5 or so chapters left, and a friend did say it gets better at the very end, but I'm not so bored that I will pick it up again. I always have my iTunes when that happens.


    Any additional comments?

    She's no Tina Fey.
