Read full description of the books:
Almost every single review on here gives a rapturous five stars, so I don't feel too bad about saying this just wasn't for me. I was excited to read it, but now considering the title I wonder if it's for people who are aging out of Girls. Being in my stodgy mid-thirties I may just be the wrong demographic?
Not liking this book made me feel old and cranky and judgy and mean. It was extremely readable and reminded me in some way of social media, like I was looking at a person's Instagram account of intimate, artfully-filtered selfies. This writer is clearly talented and the book feels very "true" and extremely self-revealing, even though it's fiction. The thing was, I did not appreciate the self that was revealed, to the point that it made me uncomfortable and angry. My strong response probably means the book is good but I didn't finish it, even though it's super short and easy to get through. I kind of wanted to throw the main character against the wall, resented the diaristic quality, and really disliked the premise even though (or possibly because) it was an experience I could personally relate to.
But my negative reaction obviously says nothing about the book's faults and everything about my own. YOU will no doubt love Women, as everyone in the universe does, except me!
