Mostly because she was essentially Caitlin Moran who I loveBUTBut throughout it all it seems like Caitlin never really settled into the irst person narration of her main character At times it became too obvious that Caitlin the outspoken Wheres Mummy Mouse? feminist was writing what she thought 19 year old girl who isn t aware of sexism would think about things The sentences that ended this is just what girls doelt a little too much like Caitlin was silently adding in parentheses BUT THAT S BECAUSE THE WORLD IS SEXIST that it didn t Get Over Your Damn Self feel like a believable inner monologueBut asiderom that there were other occasions that just Alpha Dog (Weredog Chronicles) felt like Caitlin than the protagonist And yes I get that despite what the opening page claims the protagonist basically IS Caitlin But timeselt like obviously Caitlin thought of something witty and decided to shoehorn it into the book even though it didn t really Mr. Funny feel like a natural observation of airst person narrator So maybe a third person narration style would suit Caitlin s voice better It s almost like she s someone who is very used to being a journalist and a columnist and 90% of her writing has been her writing her own thoughts and being allowed to add Caitlin Moran s side comments wherever she wants toMy Heres to the Ladies final issue with the writing is that the tense didn t always make sense While mostly written in present tense there were aew occasions where suddenly something would be described in the past tense which again sounded like Caitlin make a narrator s observation Saying Yes to the Millionaire from 2018 about what life was like in the 90s Which is a totally and validine thing to do if the rest of the book isn t written in present tense and set in 1994 You can t talk about these being the days when people could smoke in gigs if your narrator is not even aware of a The Majors Guarded Heart / The Highlanders Dangerous Temptation / Paying the Vikings Price future where you CAN T smoke in gigs And your 19 year old protagonist can t have a short paragraph talking about how nice her hangovers are not like the hangovers you get when you re over 30 because she s not over 30 She has no experience of thatMy one other gripe is the HUGE amount of grammatical errors I will slightly let this off and hope they are corrected inuture re prints but good lord there are a lot There are words missing there are grammatical errors like a enemy and there are random mis spelled words like sayid instead of said And presumably proofreading is somebody s job Whoever it was may I suggest they hire me insteadAnyway despite all of these complaints I Sons of the Devil, Vol. 2 feel I should clarify again that I did enjoy the story and I mostly enjoyed reading the protagonist I just really wish that some tighterine tuning could have been done on the narration style either by removing some elements that were clearly written by Caitlin rather than Dolly or else just making the book narrated in the third person and allow Caitlin Merry Christmas, Daddy full reign to give the commentary that is so clearly going on in her head as she s writingAlso sidenote I haven t read How To Build A Girl to which this is the seuel since it came out in 2015 I rated that one 4 stars and I m not sure whether I was just less criticalor that one or whether the issues I had with this book weren t very noticeable in that oneIncidentally I just went back and read my review of How To Build A Girl Funnily enough I had the exact same criticisms there that the voice was basically indistinguishable Roped in from Caitlin Moran s own voice and theact it was very distracting when switching rom present tense to some indeterminate uture self looking back on those days So nice to know that the writing style is in Secrets of the Tycoons Bride (The Garrisons, fact consistent between both books and that my irritation by it is also consistent. EBut when my two night stand with edgy comedian Jerry Sharp goes wrong people start to know my nameor all the wrong reasons ‘He’s a vampire He destroys bright young girls Also he’s a total dick’ Suzanne warned me But by that point I’d already had sex with him Bad sex Now I’m one of the girls he’s trying to destroy He needs to be stoppedBut how can one woman stop a bad amous powerful man.

Much like the Friendfluence first book in the series How to Build a Girl this was incredibly raunchy and hilarious Moran doesn t sugarcoat anything and it s very refreshing Yes at times it s awfully lewd but Johanna is such aantastically crafted heroine you can t help but One Part Woman fall in love with all aspects of her personality including her extreme openness aboutwell everything The last 10% or so was a bit too on the noseor me I wouldn t have minded a bit nuance in the storytelling But overall a Stranger fun ride and one that had me turning the pages reading the entire thing in 1 day Definitely lookingorward to the Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis final installment in this 45 Starsor How to be Famous audiobook by Caitlin Moran read by Louise Brealey This is such a great series I hope there is books to come The author does a great job of empowering women without being anti men I m also really enjoying the narration I ll look or some books read by Louise Brealey She has a great voice Once again it s as if Caitlin Moran has read my teenage diaries and used them as a base or a The English Spy (Gabriel Allon, fictional story I connect heart and soul with every sentence and it s always such an emotional heartfelt experience Love love love it Girls should smile when they think about their sex lives That is the greatest wish I haveor themI reuested this as an ARC just assuming it would be of Caitlin s essays which I really enjoy Once approved I saw that it was actually classified as YA To See Paris and Die fiction andully prepared myself to give it a try and then to inform Netgalley that unfortunately this is not my thing To my surprise I really enjoyed it packed with the author s trademark irreverent sense of humour it swept me away to 1990 s London and the rise of Britpop Her books may not be Out of China for everyoneilled with LOTS of sex drugs and rock n roll not to mention the swearing but what you need to know is that she can write This little story is Mary Tudor full of amazing ideas energy and real issues There were many giggles but also some ugly crying when we got to the crux of the story At its core this is an ode to teenage girls and young women I loved her article explaining why teenage girls are the most importantans of all She also takes a look at sexual ineuality and things like slut shaming and sex videos which is probably even valid now than in the 1990 sMake no mistake this book is As Aventuras de Hornblower (Saga Hornblower farrom perfect The Accidental Tourist for one thing the hero John Kite is just way too perfect to be believable but it was so different than anything I ve ever read that I just got sucked up in this whirlwind story I would like both my children to read this when they re older but being Afrikaans and thus a bit conservative I m not sure what that age should be Maybe 25 This was hilarious and exhilaratingButrankly I wouldn t expect anything less Barcelona from a book written by Caitlin Moran I read two of Caitlin s previous books How to Be a Woman and How to Build a Girl and loved them For my Americanriends who don t know Caitlin Moran I would describe her as a Christmas Catastrophe feminist comedian a UK version of Amy SchumerHow to Be Famous centres around 19 year old Dolly Wilde who moved to Londonrom North England Dolly grew up in an unconventional Collected Poems family living on benefits Her upbringing and background is similar to Caitlin Moran s own childhood Dolly Wilde is outspokenun and overweight and she often inds herself in the most bizarre and awkward situations If you ve seen Moran s TV show Raised by Wolves which I highly recommend you will recognise some similarities between the main characters Despite this book being a book 2 eaturing Dolly Wilde How to Build a Girl being 1 How to be Famous can be definitely read as a standalone If you are loo.
