4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational reading for anyone lacking confidence, 13 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Women On Top (Paperback)
For all the failings it has (such as the lack of diverse sources, and Nancy's sometimes over analylitcal approach), this book does one thing..... it makes you realise that everyone has a diverse sexual imagination, whether they choose to act upon it or not. People who clearly would never 'behave in such a manner' in their real lives, are obviously just as interested as those who sleep with everyone they come across.
In essence then this book encourages women of all ages, backgrounds and sexual preferences to realise they are 'normal', in as much as that 'normal' doesn't exsist. All the women in this book are linked by their fantasies but restrained by their moral backgrounds, religious beliefs and so on. I found it refreshing to read and it gives me hope that true emancipation may one day come into fruition.

5.0 out of 5 stars An alternative outlook for an outcast generation, 26 Jan. 2004
Tim Burton's book was a gift this christmas, and although I wouldn't have picked this myself I must say I am incredibly impressed with this little book! Tim Burton may be known for his original/twisted approach to his film-making, and his book is no exception. The short, illustrated collection of poems are appealing on so many levels. Essentially about the cruelty of other children and your own parents, the drawings are heart wrenching and very emotional, despite it's slight stance. In fact the more you read this book, the more you can find something to stir up memories of an adolesent era that was both painful and unjust, and yet appreciate and savour the survival into adulthood. Then, as Mr Burton likes to remind you, invariably you become a parent and start the whole cycle of love/desire/betrayal all over again. Enlightening and satisfying, I recommend this book to anyone who has been through their teenage years, or is currently suffering them!
