The best memoir I have read in a while. Honest and refreshing. The end does not taper off like most memoirs, it left me with a sense of closure. The author over uses the word undulating and I wish she had delved more into her political views, she had a good couple things to say that I enjoyed her perspective on. I reccomend this to any womyn or man of any life stage.

Reminds me of 'eat pray love' and Cait Flanders "a year of living with less", none hold my interest. Authors such as Laura Kipnis, Roxane Gay, Rebecca Traister, Rebecca Solnit, Barbara Ehrenreit have spoiled me for less mature/brilliant writers. Also the audiobook reader Allyson Ryan doesn't have an enjoyable cadence, I can't help wishing the author had narrated, and improved the flow. I made it halfway...

I don’t get this book. How did she get a book deal? Reads like stream of consciousness thinking of the dull, 40th year of the author. Didn’t find it interesting, inspiring nor funny.

This is good reading for those who might benefit from looking at what they have in their lives that others don't, as opposed to what they don't have in their lives that others do. Certainly neither way (singlehood vs. marriage/children) is perfect, but both ways hold both pleasures and disappointments. A good book for our times when so many women are happily making their way through uncharted territory.
