I don't normally leave feedback but these were so bad that I just had to warn people. Very hard to install so that the gate is completely secure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 6 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How To Be a Woman (Paperback)
As a huge fan of Caitlin Moran's writing and also a feminist, I was really looking forward to this book. However, I was disappointed with both the writing quality and the content. Whilst her writing style works really well for articles, this gets annoying in book form - the overuse of exclamation marks and constant use of block capitals really wears thin after a few chapters.

Rather than delve into any real feminist issues, this is really more of a sketchy memoir of her life. She recounts parts of her life, and then tries to explain how her choices are feminist. It just doesn't work and the reader is left with something that is not a memoir nor a feminist discourse, but rather an awkward, clumping mixture of both.
