So many of her observations captured my thoughts and feelings about today's society and its expectations, especially of women. Her views are so similar to mine, yet so taboo--at least here in the US where every woman is expected to want/have/love children in this happy happy (and unreal) place. At times, I found myself laughing at the author's insightfulness about topics I wouldn't discuss with my best girlfriends for fear of offending them with my opinions.
I'm afraid that what I've written doesn't do the book justice or serve it well, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to anyone who likes books a little deeper than the more common "Women's Fiction" pablum.
