4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone - but definitely for me, 6 July 2011
This review is from: How To Be a Woman (Paperback)
If you already know and rate Caitlin Moran's journalism, then this is a delight - entertaining, thought-provoking, reassuring and disconcerting in just the right measures.

If you don't know Caitlin Moran's other writing, then so much will depend on whether you like the tone of voice. I do, and for me, it was like the best kinds of conversations with my friends - informed, surprising, irreverent and memorable. However, we all tend to pick people whose conversational style we get along with. If you're looking for straight-faced manifestos, scientific analysis or fervent polemic - this isn't it. But it is a glorious voyage through one person's experience of trying to work out how to live, and how we might form the kind of society that gives everyone the best chance of getting along, making progress and yes, perhaps also owning a pair of yellow shoes along the way.

This isn't a book laying down the rules for everyone, you probably won't agree with every word (wouldn't that be dull) but it should make you think for yourself, and not be afraid to do so. And for what it's worth - I laughed, a lot.
