It's Not That I'm Bitter. Gina Barreca reminds me that although I may be odd, I'm neither wrong nor alone. I like it better now that I'm fully done, and have seen some other people's opinions

It's Not That I'm Bitter. She makes insightful observations about women, men, and everything between the two. I enjoyed the amusing stories throughout, particularly the ones about Tallulah Bankhead and Liz Carpenter. I like it better now that I'm fully done, and have seen some other people's opinions. It IS humor and that has exaggerations and whatnot, which I find problematic, but at the same time it is funny and readable!

I read the first seven short stories and I found them to not only be not funny but really rather tedious. I found them to be less short stories or essays and more to be like a really long blog rant that kept making the same point over and over again.

Описание: In this collection of hilarious essays that mull everything from the horror of chin hairs to why the "glass ceiling" is better described as a thick layer of men, Barreca tells women to stop believing the lies and conquer the world.

In a world where eye cream is made from placenta, Gina Barreca is the lone voice calling out “But wait, whose placenta is it?”  She asks the crucial questions: Why is there no King Charming? Why does no bra ever fit? Why are there no tutus in XL? Why do more intelligent women have trusted psychics than have trusted financial advisors?  While she definitely wants everyone to know that she's not bitter, Gina does want to know why no one realizes that Anne Bancroft was only thirty-six when she played Mrs. Robinson, the quintessential cougar. In "It's Not That I'm Bitter..." Gina shouts out her message to women everywhere: “You are smart enough to conquer the world, so please stop weeping when you try on bathing suits at T.J. Maxx.”  As Gina declares "The world lies to us and we want to believe.  We want to believe that, if we wear a pair of palazzo pants with a latex escape hatch built into the stomach area, we’ll appear five pounds slimmer instantly… We torture ourselves, even though we are smart broads."  In deliciously quotable essays on the ability of both chin hairs and tweezers to affect your life, the reason every woman believes she’s crazy, the possibility that the "glass ceiling" may just be a thick layer of men, and thoughts on intimate conversations she’d have with Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Cindy McCain and Sarah Palin, Barreca gleefully rejects the emotional torture, embraces the limitless laughter, and shows other women how they can conquer the world with a sharp wit, good shoes and not a single worry about VPLs.

Confession time: I am a man. I have worked with nurses for over thirty years, been married twice for a total of over 25 year and I have two daughters. Honestly, I know about as much about women now, as I did then except for..."yes, Dear." Being a woman is clearly far more complicated than any man could handle; emotionally or mentally. No, I do not mean intellectually, I mean mentally, as in going "mental." Ok, I will likely pay for that, but I already spend most of my time in the "dog house" anyway. There you go, typical male, I made this about me, instead if telling you that I enjoyed peeking behind the vail of secrecy. Humorous book--also she is from my school...GO Huskies.

This book, my new favorite, is a breezy, lighthearted, laugh-out-loud read that had me texting my BFF by Chapter 19 urging her to get it immediately! It's smart, funny, charming, and profoundly witty! A must read for any woman over 40. By Chapter 8, I began to wonder if Ms. Barreca had somehow gotten ahold of my diary! (Second Wives, UNITE!)
The Rollers of Vildar
I waited a long time to get this book. I saw Ms. Barreca interviewed on a talk show and love her sense of humor. The book is full of lovely and humorous reflections of the experiences and thoughts of many women "of a certain age"/ A treasure!

Great, funny read. Will be checking out her other books

GIna makes me laugh out loud. Her women's humor is right on target and universal. Our book club will probably laugh all the way through our meeting next week.

Read the book and then heard her presentation at a fund raising event. More specific in person, with nice mix of positive observations as well as negatives. At times "the read" became tiring because of its predictability. I enjoyed They Used to Call Me Snow White...but I Drifted, more.

It is always so disappointing for me when I pick up a book that has been lauded as "laugh out loud" or "the funniest book I have read all year!" and it turns out to not have that effect on me. It's Not That I'm Bitter is not a bad book but I didn't find it a funny book either. I read the first seven short stories and I found them to not only be not funny but really rather tedious. I found them to be less short stories or essays and more to be like a really long blog rant that kept making the same point over and over again. However, I am not the kind of person who typically abandons a book without really giving it a chance. So I skipped ahead a few stories and tried again...still nothing. Bummer.
Love Gina and her columns. Very often she mirrors my own thoughts and feelings.
