Title: How To Be a Woman
Author: Caitlin Moran
Narrator: Caitlin Moran
Rating (Story): ★★★★★
For this review I’m mostly going to refer you to my review of the book in which I mostly rave about how much I loved it. It’s funny, it’s relatable, and it makes some points I think are just spot on. It’s so wonderful, I was laughing out loud or nodding my head in agreement almost the entire time I listened. And having the author narrate only enhanced the experience. A lot of the book feels like a friend talking to you, confiding in you, and occasionally ranting. As such, hearing it in the author’s own voice just felt right. I will definitely be looking for more author-narrated books and highly recommending this one to everyone.

I think I would happily listen to Caitlin Moran read the Dictionary, she is awesome.
Mostly, I enjoy an author narration, they know how it needs to feel.
Haha, I agree! She’s an awesome narrator. And I’ll definitely be looking for more author narrated works, because you’re right that they know exactly how they intended it to be read.
I read this one, but I can totally imagine it being great in audio. When an author is good enough to read their own stories, I think it adds a lot.
It was wonderful. It was nice to hear her emotion at different points and her accent was so much fun!
Yes! This one sounds like the perfect audio for my daily commutes. Always looking for great audio recs.
I highly recommend it! It was awesome as a book and if anything even better as an audiobook 🙂
