Classic Nora!

I never laugh out loud reading other authors like I do when I read Nora Ephron, and this book is one of her best. I miss her dearly!


I feel bad about my neck

by Joannabanana on Apr 10, 2008

Very funny, but definitely for women. Don't let the title put you off, this isn't as self absorbed as it sounds. It is hard to make me laugh out loud, but this book did. I've sent it as gifts to three women friends " of a certain age", and all have liked it. I do think women need some experience under their belts to get the laughs.


Great Gift!

Funny and wittey! I purchased 2 books for my friends that will turn 70 this year. Ask them to read at least 1 page a day to start their day off in a great funny way. I read this book and was in stitches. I recommend it for any age group of women over 25.


You can Relate

Nora Ephron's book, I Feel Bad about my Neck, etc., is a book that any woman will be able to relate to. When reading it you may think about your own life or your own mother's experiences. The book is funny, honest and interesting. I'd recommend Ephron's book to anyone who needs a lift and a laugh!

I guess I expected more than this book offered, given the author's success in other writing genres. The title is very "catchy" and it's what caught me. However, I found the subjects she tackled, such as wrinkly necks, purses, dry, aging skin etc. to be very superficially, and jokingly, dealt with, with a "ha, ha" attitude. That's not what I was looking for. For any middle aged woman I suppose it has some merit but the chapters really are very limited to this age group and laughing about life's aging issues can only be stretched so far. I'm one of these women and that's why I bought the book but I got bored right away, into the very first chapter in fact and then browsed quickly through the rest of the book. I couldn't really find any reason to read it thoroughly, so I gave it to a friend, who didn't really like it either. I think she passed it on though so there's hope that someone out there might actually like to know how to keep her neck hidden from the world as she ages - I've got better things to do with my time!
