I had mixed feelings about this book. There were some chapters in this book that I found absolutely laugh-out-loud hilarious, and yet there were some chapters in this book that just didn't interest me in the least, probably because I couldn't relate, not being a New Yorker. The chapters were nice and short, however, so I was able to glide through them with minimal frustration. Overall, I thought it was a quick, enjoyable read and I'm glad I read it, even if it was nothing but pointless ranting.

Not her best. It is a slim book and she really reached to get enough pieces to fill it.

Well, There is not really much here. A very fast read, with some funny bits. But mostly just tossed together. Glad I didn't spend $20 on this new!

Wonderful little book. Can be read in two or three hours, one airplane flight. Endearing, about being a woman, aging... and figuring it all out. It's almost a good model for taking stock, everything that you are... that you have a pretty good life.

The first half of that title alone predisposed me to laugh, and I was not disappointed with the book. So many parts of it touched a sympathetic nerve. This may be because I am getting along in years. Younger women might not find the book so interesting, but just keep that title or the author's name in mind for the day when you WILL be able to appreciate it!

This is an extremely witty book about women and vanity. I have ordered several copies to give to my sisters. Nora Ephron is a riot.

I love all of Nora Epron's writing, but these essays were something I could really relate to - I laughed out loud several times and have shared the book with tons of friends.

reviewed I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts About Being a Woman on
This book was great! As a women just over 60 I feel like I could relate to all the issues she addresses. Her humor is right up my alley. It isn't often that I laugh out loud reading a book but did with this one. Even though she lives in New York and her experiences with the rich life in a few chapters aren't mine, her way of describing the events are worth it. The book is written with chapters addressing different things about getting older. Enjoy the book. I think it will put a smile on your face.
