Soundbites About How To Be a Woman

Author: Caitlin Moran
Narrator: Caitlin Moran
Rating (Story): ★★★★★
Rating (Narration):★★★★★

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Yes! This one sounds like the perfect audio for my daily commutes. Always looking for great audio recs.
