Publisher's Summary

A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, The Vagina Monologues is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities all across America and at hundreds of college campuses, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement - V-Day - to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate, and wise, Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who hears it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.

"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."

What the Critics Say

"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 love to listen to American books. Following the plot, keeping track of personal developments and intrigues while walking two miles to work

    "Staccato Voice"

    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 guess you have to see it to get it."

    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.

    Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.

    "Vagina Monologues"

    I found this to be crass. What the author finds funny I found to be vulgar.

    "disappointing"

    So this book brings together a bunch of the whining, crying, spazing and not understanding their Vaginas! Big deal. BTW - I am male
