This book was fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, even though some of the monologues were heartbreaking. I just happened to catch 'The Vagina Monologues' on HBO shortly after I read the book, very funny, very sad. I also liked the foreword by Gloria Steinem. Cunt! Cunt! I don't know, I'm still not too fond of that word, but it was nice to learn of it's origins. How did it end up being derogatory, I wonder? I highly recommend this book! February 14th is V-Day from now on!

I had high expectations for this book and maybe that's why I can only give it three stars. I expected more --as in quantity -- of monologues. The majority of the book was the introduction, the foreword, and a discussion about V-Day and how it came to be. The introduction to each monologue as well as the monologue itself was fantastic. I just was left wanting more.

To be honest, I was very disappointed in this book. I went into this with high expectations only to be extremely let down. This book was over before it really even started. Maybe the performance is better than reading it by oneself.

I do believe that women should be in touch with themselves, no pun intended, but I did not think the vignettes in this book were very insightful. Although some parts were interesting, I felt, as a whole, the book lacked substance.

If my vagina could talk, it would sum this book up in one word: overrated.

What an interesting book. It certanly took me past my comfort zone a few times but not enough to put it down. I would recommend every woman read it, no matter what age. It has a way of keeping a woman centered by showing us that our sexuality is important to who we are.

A poignant and hilarious four of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, "The Vagina Monologues" is a celebration of female sexualityin all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities all across America and at hundreds of college campuses, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement - V-Day - to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's Obie Award-wining masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way.

As a collection of thoughts about what it means to be a woman, and as a focus for a drive to end violence against women, this had a certain level of interest. As a bunch of women sitting around and talking abaout their genitalia, some of it sad, some funny, and most was . . . um, well, ooohKAY, then.
