If you are a loudmouth, feminist with real problems and no fairy godmothers - you'll like Lena's work both in writing and on TV. She's honest, funny and direct in this novel. And it's an enjoyable and quick read.
A horrible horrible book. Just cannot understand why it has received such rave reviews. It was a Book Club choice and we all struggled with it. 10 women had to give up reading it as we were disturbed by the twisted warped mind of the author.
it is a nice book but gotta say this that it is a bit boring.....but I would also say that it has thought me some really important things I bought this book only because I am a big lens Dunham family so I'm like a 60%satisfied but also 40% not satisfied
Interesting in places, but ultimately a tale of navel gazing privilege told from the perspective of a therapy-soaked wunderkind who claims to be coming at life from the position of underdog but has clearly rarely ever been told no in her entire life.
I think that I am a bit too old to relate to some of the events/experiences Dunham has but some struck a nerve and I would gladly give this to my daughter to read as a 'what you don't have to put up with' text. Her experiences serve young women well.
