"I am so pleased to present this just-recorded audio edition of my play for people to hear in America and around the world," Ensler said. "Often during my travels performing and in discussions about The Vagina Monologues, many people have asked me to make a recording so that they could listen to it again and again. With the online introduction coming just before V-Day 2001, it also means a lot to me that the audible.com sales of The Vagina Monologues will help support the expanding movement to stop violence against women."

"Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving...it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction." (Variety)
I feel very enlightened reading this book. Listening to it was even better. I'm seeing the Monologues this weekend at my daughters school in Southern California. She plays a part in the Monologue. I'm proud to be her mom. She is empowering young women and in doing so, empowering me as well!!!
Eye opening. The fact hat it is performed by the author/performer makes it completely real.
She eases the listener from humor to serious information, and back to humor in order to not completely shock the listener.
What would your vagina wear?
I couldn't believe I was really a closet prude!
Each monologue was interesting, many were funny, many made me stop and think. I really enjoyed the collection and how varied it was in terms of the ages, races and class backgrounds of those discussed. It also included both heterosexual and homosexual essays and never felt biased, to me, toward one or the other.
Is it allowed to put no stars? Wow I was disappointed maybe it was just overhyped I can only use the words horrendous or difficult to read or just bad. I have wasted too much of my life just writing this review thats how bad.
Ok, I got this because I heard about the reviews...
It's a "close" look of short stories of women and how they view their vagina, ok.... some of the stories are funny, gross and then finally you say enough already, I'm exhausted of hearing Vagina every 3rd word. The writer/narrator can be a bit shrill.
I love to listen to American books. Following the plot, keeping track of personal developments and intrigues while walking two miles to work
I'm sorry to say that I haven't finished the book. The narrator reads with a staccato voice, which gets irritating after the first introduction. So I started to listen diagonally, but alas, the voice stayed the same. The book never comes in a "flow".
I didn't really enjoy this book. I was expecting something more humorous. Parts were very poignant and thought provoking ... but mostly I was bored. I guess it translates better as a stage production.
