So this is one of those don't-care-if-the-phones-ringing-or-the-kettles-boiling-can't-put-you-down-books, because 1/ it's bloody funny, and 2/ it perfectly describes me and the majority of my female friends. Women, we must be so frustrating for men - in a constant state of flux, never quite sure whether we are right or wrong, always trying, often self-depreciating..... yet always with a bubbling urge to be strong, speak our minds and f*** everyone else (not literally)...
Caitlin Moran, perfectly melds feminist strength with our our slight soft-spot for men. I urge each and every one of you to read it. And men, read it too, if only for reassurance and peace of mind, that yes, we are all slightly mad, and controlled by those terrifying impulses (otherwise known as hormones.)
Because I wrote this post over a year ago, got distracted and forgot to finish the review (and press publish/ blame hormones) - you can now buy it on amazon, for less than a fiver! http://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Be-Woman-Caitlin-Moran/dp/0091940745.
Let me know what you think.
