Funny-not inlove though

Wasnt quite as funny as id hoped, there were sad truths put in funny ways and a couple sad truths with no comedic relief, i felt a little disconnected because of the wealth factor-can pay all sorts of money on physical maintenance and a renting problem. Its a good book, there are many very funny relatable parts about purses and children and food. Just ultimately i think id enjoy something a bit more relatable than a semi-famous person.

I loved every bit

If Nora Ephron can laugh about the process of growing older, so can we. She writes about her life so far in an amusing way that will make you feel she is a sister or best friend. She speaks of herself openly, often hilariously and makes you laugh along with her, sometimes out loud. Ephron is a brave woman for the truth she tells and I honor her for being courageous enough to do it, for herself and for every woman facing the same fate. I loved every bit of "I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman" and I think most woman past 40 will see a glimpse of themselves or their future in her writing.

Hilarious and true, what a combination!

Nora Ephron verbalized my thoughts about purses and especially necks. What happens overnight? Suddenly you look in the mirror and realize, "Omigod, it's my grandmother's neck!Who drew those lines?" Thank God for winter, I used to hate it but how else can you wear turtlenecks everyday? I am considering volunteering for Antarctica for the summer so I can live in polarfleece.This is so humour filled but also validating. We are all in this together and I swear, I will be buried in a turtleneck

Enough with denial - embrace it ;-)

I've loved Nora Ephron ever since Sleepless In Seattle and You've Got Mail. Heartburn (which she wrote) turned into a hit film, and so I knew when I saw that she wrote another book again, I thought I'd pick it up. It's a collection of amusing essays all about growing older. She says that there are so many books out there about what to do after menopause etc, but none addressed your neck change as you age so she thought this was a cute and funny title. She talks about maintenance being a second career because a lot of women are pre-empting age. For example, hair dying, botox etc. She talks about her husbands theory of women either being birds, muffins or horses and that is the shape of your face. If you are a muffin, you can have a zillion face lifts and be fine, but other shaped faces - not so much. She talks more seriously about reaching 60 and start loosing friends. You have to come to grips with reality and realise that we aren't invincible and won't die - it's getting closer to being on the cards. She also mentions things she wishes she'd known; You can't be friends with people who call after 11pm, Write everything down, Back up your files etc. She's very funny (a very dry sense of humour) and it shows through this book. It's a good read that is sometimes serious but overall will be thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining. If you are a fan of her movies, you will definately love I Feel Bad About My Neck ...
