Moranthology Usually when I read anything by Caitlin Moran it ends with me wishing she were my best friend This collection of essays was no different As always, Moran is delightful, relatable, hilarious and truly entertaining. In a world where women still worry that they are too much too big, too loud, too demanding, too exuberant Taylor was a reminder what a delight it can be, for men and women alike, when a woman really does take full possession of her powers How incredibly light and refreshing this book was Caitlin Moran is a breath of fresh air She s sharp, funny and just reeks of intelligence My kind of woman This book consists of essays, that I must say are rather a mixed bag In How to be a woman I knew In a world where women still worry that they are too much too big, too loud, too demanding, too exuberant Taylor was a reminder what a delight it can be, for men and women alike, when a woman really does take full possession of her powers How incredibly light and refreshing this book was Caitlin Moran is a breath of fresh air She s sharp, funny and just reeks of intelligence My kind of woman This book consists of essays, that I must say are rather a mixed bag In How to be a woman I knew what I was going to get Straight forward feminism In this Moran discusses, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Dr Who, David Cameron, Downton Abbey and even Michael Jackson Moran has obvious style, and much of this book I sat reading just giggling to myself She does have a rather clever style to her writing The only thing I strongly disagreed with was the way she entirely slated Downton Abbey I loved that series and was purely devastated when it ended Dame Maggie Smith is amazing The main huge problem with this book was the grammar and punctuation issue There seemed to be a lack of it Seriously, it got on my nerves after a reading for a while This book was entertaining, but not as enjoyable as How to be a woman I was going on a very long bus ride that I knew would leave me inevitably grumpy I wandered Barnes Noble, unable to find something funny to distract me from my impending angst Then I remembered that Caitlin Moran had another book out I swooped, I bought, I packed Now, 24 hours having purchased the book, I m finished.The think about reading Moran is that you feel like you re having drinks with your talkative, eccentric friend who never means to clash her clothes or have a random sandwich in I was going on a very long bus ride that I knew would leave me inevitably grumpy I wandered Barnes Noble, unable to find something funny to distract me from my impending angst Then I remembered that Caitlin Moran had another book out I swooped, I bought, I packed Now, 24 hours having purchased the book, I m finished.The think about reading Moran is that you feel like you re having drinks with your talkative, eccentric friend who never means to clash her clothes or have a random sandwich in her purse, but hey, at least she offers to share Her collected articles here are insightful, witty, honest, and compelling, flitting from her impoverished but never mourned childhood to interviews with some of the biggest celebrities in the world.I d give this 4.5 stars if I could because I really did not enjoy the Lady Gaga or Doctor Who sections, in which Moran admitted outright hat she was a massive fan of each and proceeded accordingly I have no real interest in either, and her writing couldn t compel me to feel differently But hey, to each their own That s what being a woman indeed, being a human is all about, right I m only sorry we Americans haven t seenof Moran before this year Let s not fall short again, 2013 3.5 stars I really liked it, not quite a much as How to be a woman, but enough to read anything else she writes I could not identify with a lot of the articles as I have not watched any of the TV shows she reference and a lot of it is very British, but I was still giggling like a mad person, so that deserves high praise I love that she mixes personal anecdotes, real issues and celebrity stuff If you enjoyed Tina Fey I think you should try this On libraries They are cathedrals of the minds3.5 stars I really liked it, not quite a much as

On libraries They are cathedrals of the minds hospitals of the soul theme parks of the imagination For those of us who are new to the phenomenon that is Caitlin Moran, this compilation of columns proves that she is an unparalleled artist, painting with a brush of words and a palette of intelligence, hilarity, conscience, introspection, and interpersonality In other words, her writing is wicked smart, uber perceptive, totally principled, and super freaking funny.Only two problems separate Moranthology from How To Be a Woman, an irrefutably five star book 1 the nature of an anthology an For

hilarity, conscience, introspection, and interpersonality In other words, her writing is wicked smart, uber perceptive, totally principled, and super freaking funny.Only two problems separate Moranthology from How To Be a Woman, an irrefutably five star book 1 the nature of an anthology and 2 haste First, reading this book is a bit like watching a full season of West Wing in a week or multiple episodes of 30 Rock in a single sitting one is simultaneously overwhelmed by the brilliance and unable to fully appreciate it If I had it to do again without the library due date bearing down on me , I d read one piece a day As it was, I had trouble switching gears between columns and ended with an impression of slight unevenness in quality Second, the damned typos Clearly in a rush to capitalize on the success of How To Be a Woman in the States, Moran s publisher appears to have either hired a high school student to re type the columns and run straight to the printer, or forgotten to insert a caveat explaining that original errors were maintained for some strange sense of journalistic integrity and I m not an idiot who doesn t recognize British spelling variations I m just a whack job who s pet peeved by the lack of thorough editing.If I could give a book four and a half stars, I would Blame How To Be a Woman for my refusal to call Moranthology perfection, then read both books This collection of essays from The Times of London was a mixed bag Columns featuring her trademark strident feminism Yes, please Profiles of Keith Richards, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga Sure, I m down for that A lengthy accounting of the royal wedding, punctuated by numerous tweets from British celebrities I d never heard of No thanks Reviews of Dr Who, Downton Abbey, and Sherlock, none of which I d ever seen Yawn Although that Sherlock sounds pretty good Added to Netflix queue And This collection of essays from The Times of London was a mixed bag Columns featuring her trademark

celebrities I d never heard of No thanks Reviews of Dr Who, Downton Abbey, and Sherlock, none of which I d ever seen Yawn Although that Sherlock sounds pretty good Added to Netflix queue And while I m sure there was a way to write about Michael Jackson s memorial service that wouldn t seem dated years later, Caitlin s column sure wasn t it.This book also had many, many mistakes of the typo punctuation grammar variety The most egregious A column that used the word serious instead of series all the way through I know newspapers are less concerned about copyediting issues than ever before, and that the British have always been a bitlax about such things anyway, but I wish someone at HarperCollins had just gone through this book and fixed the most obvious mistakes they were honestly quite distracting.So what s the reason to read this book Well, these days Caitlin seems focused on producing TV shows, so who knows when her next book a sequel to How to Build a Girl will even be released If you re like me and find yourself in the mood forof Caitlin s writing, this book is basically the last resort, and that s how it should be approached 4.5 starsHahahaha, I think I need a lie down now.So, what can I possibly say about Moranthology which hasn t already been said before In a nutshell, it s bloody fantastic, very accessible, loaded with sharp wit, an ever discerning eye and pumped full of silliness If Moranthology was a dessert, it would be a mash up of all your favourites with some sprinkles added on top.Caitlin Moran does what she does best she puts her heart and soul

with some sprinkles added on top.Caitlin Moran does what she does best she puts her heart and soul into everything she writes, and in the process mocks herself quite a lot She is a fun loving free spirit and I fully salute her chaotic craziness She is a breath of fresh air which I hope to channel one day In this collection of columns, she discusses the art of chivalry and the reason why it s dying which turns out to be all womens doing , why she doesn t agree with giving kids party bags at the end of a birthday, why she thinks Lola out of Charlie and Lola is an unsuitable role model for all young girls including her daughters and why she made a terrible terrible stoner Oh, and there are also some amusing snippets involving bedtime conversation with her husband, Pete Moranthology is a MUST for Moran fans so what are you waiting for Go, get it and revel in some light hearted silliness You won t even notice Winter s on its way And, Caitlin, you can t copyright your hair because I want it and by god, one day I ll have it Possibly The Only Drawback About The Bestselling How To Be A Woman Was That Its Author, Caitlin Moran, Was Limited To Pretty Much One Subject Being A WomanInMORANTHOLOGY Caitlin Gets Quite Chatty About Many Subjects, Including Cultural, Social And Political Issues Which Are Usually Left To Hot Shot Wonks And Not A Woman Who Sometimes Keeps A Falafel In Her Handbag These Other Subjects IncludeCaffeine Ghostbusters Being Poor Twitter Caravans Obama Wales Paul McCartney The Welfare State Sherlock David Cameron Looking Like Ham Amy Winehouse

Transsexuals The Gay Moon Landings I ve read, and enjoyed, a few of Caitlin Moran s columns in The Times and elsewhere too, probably so when I saw this cheap in a charity shop, I picked it up to put by my bed and use as a light read before going to sleep.Alas, though there were plenty of bits which made me laugh, and a few sections which I found particularly touching and intelligent mainly about places I d also been , much of it was a bit tiresome and I didn t find that amusing This was mainly due to the problem of 350 pag I ve read, and enjoyed, a few of Caitlin Moran s columns in The Times

the problem of 350 pages of the same act being a lotexposing than a couple of magazine columns once a week There seemed to be quite a lot of content that interested me little I felt less and less like the target audience for Moran s schtick, the longer I read.Aspects of her socialist proselytising irritated me a bit, parts showed a puzzling lack of self awareness, but much of the reason I ended up less than impressed with the book was because there was pages and pages of popular culture journalism which bored me witless Who cares what you saw on telly or which celebs you hung out with backstage, when you can t hold my interest when writing about them I compare in my mind stuff I have read by Stephen Fry and Charlie Brooker, and feel their writing on such subjects wasmy taste than

to feel themselves up in the videos and this behaviour is leaking true story I was once hollered at by a friend for embarrassing her in a club by dancing like a drunken MC Hammer She proceeded to go to the opposite end of the dancefloor and rub her boobs for 3 minutes, and couldn t understand why I thought that behaviour was infinitelyembarrassing than my Running Man , and a million other things that popped into her head besides.Chatty and funny, this made me laugh out loud on lots of occasions, and I also irritated my boyfriend on insisting on reading bits out to him while he watched football it s payback, bitch
