Review: How To be a Woman - Caitlin Moran
Caitlin Moran writes from her own perspective with no agenda other than to share her thoughts and experiences on being a woman of the modern world. Personally I've found some feminist-type books dry and full of rants; this book explores the issue with hilarity. I read this on a long train journey and frightened my fellow passengers by randomly bursting into laughter (on the upside I got to keep a table all to myself for most of the trip!).
I'm loathe to say much more than this because this is less of a storyline with characters and more of an exploration of life as a woman from childhood and beyond which will have you questioning your own life to date in a very frank way. I know several men who have read How To Be a Woman who wouldn't hesitate to recommend it themselves.
For me this is a must-have title in my Kindle collection and one I plan to read again in the future.
