    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "The BEST Dating, Beauty, & Hostess Book Ever"

    This is probably the best dating, beauty, hostess, kick-ass, and "how-to--be" book ever written. Shar is wise, shocking, funny, and the best auntie you never had.

    Listen and learn the proper etiquette for how to tell someone to buzz off nicely— how to throw parties no one can forget—and how to apply lipstick that never smudges.

    Femme’s Guide is the whole kit of what a real girl needs to know: from how to start a failing car, to seductively educating her butch—advice that can be applied to any gender!

    "Simply fabulous!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Femme's Guide to the Universe to be better than the print version?

    I loved the audio version but now I want to read the print version even more!


    What did you like best about this story?

    No good books really discuss butch femme relationships and act as a guide for femmes while still respecting our integrity and intelligence, but Shar does a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    Shar Rednour's Femme's Guide to the Universe is one of THE BEST books i've listened to in a long while! It's SEXY, SASSY, and FUNNY! Get ready for a very enlightening read and be sure to share because it's grade for all ladies! I love this book and will definitely be listening again and recommending it to all of my friends!

    "Finally!"
    Where does The Femme's Guide to the Universe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Finally! An advice book that doesn't insult my intelligence, political sensibilities or queer identity. Delivered with compassion, sass and style, this book is full of useful information. Between the Shartini and her voice, positively intoxicating experience.

    Story
    "This is Sharnomenal!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Femme's Guide to the Universe the most enjoyable?

    I love, love, love Shar's voice! Her voice is just as alluring as her vivid stories. Shar's book brings the perfect balance of jaw dropping humor, practical common sense and sensuality at every level. You never know what she is going to say next so you will be kept on your toes wanting more. The Femme's Guide was not just entertaining it was also educational and insightful on a social and cultural level.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Femme's Guide to the Universe?

    It is too hard to pick just one but I was really drawn into her childhood stories about herself, her cousins, mom and friends. What she did share about her personal memories were hilarious, sad, insightful and touching.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The "what and who is sexy/ body image" scene was my favorite. I loved that Shar shared her story about when she first realized she was beautiful and sexy. It is a scene I would play for all girls and women. Helping women embracing their sexiness and beauty is one of the best gifts you can give them. Understanding and loving ones body is liberating and empowering. Great job Shar!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book!!
