It took me an age to finish this, but actually I really enjoyed Caitlin's latest musings on life and love, if not the universe. I should qualify that since I don't read her newspaper columns, this was all new material for me, and so Moranisfesto had a freshness and originality that would be lacking if you have read most of these pieces previously. I'm a huge fan of Caitlin's generally - her humour and politics and the wicked blend thereof - and would personally nominate her for prime minister if I were British. This is an excellent indoctrination in Moran-ism. The only aspect of the book I can't say I appreciated is her commentary on television - of no interest or relevance to someone not acquainted with pretty much anything on TV and British TV in particular. Still, if you're in my boat, skip those bits and savour the rest with your shoes kicked off and a lovely glass of chardonnay.
I'm rereading it as soon as I've finished, right now! I never wanted this book to end.
the most thought provoking, funny, wise and skillful writer I have come across in years.
the reader is really good too! I was worried that after listening to How To Be A Woman read by Caitlin Moran herself, I'd be ruined for anyone else reading her work. however this reader conveyed her essence really well.
all in all, I'm grateful to be alive in the same century as this author.
The only criticism I have is that Moran didn't read this herself! The book is excellent, intelligent and intuitive. Her Moranifesto proposes genuinely excellent ideas for how we can improve this country as well as ourselves as individuals. I recommend this book to everyone - man, woman, child, Eskimo, Korean, Swedish, French, Iranian, et al!

I loved every minute of this book. Caitlins observations of life and politics through a working class, gritty and feminist attitude made me both thoughtful then howl with laughter. Thank you for the ride
