Publisher's Summary

A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, The Vagina Monologues is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities all across America and at hundreds of college campuses, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement - V-Day - to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate, and wise, Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who hears it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again. "I am so pleased to present this just-recorded audio edition of my play for people to hear in America and around the world," Ensler said. "Often during my travels performing and in discussions about The Vagina Monologues, many people have asked me to make a recording so that they could listen to it again and again. With the online introduction coming just before V-Day 2001, it also means a lot to me that the audible.com sales of The Vagina Monologues will help support the expanding movement to stop violence against women."

Critic Reviews

"Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving...it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a benediction." (Variety)

Not bad, but not funny.

Once the shock value wears off, this is another socially/politically correct diatribe. It's entertaining, but it's not funny.

Way too short for audio

Although I found this book funny and lite, I think it might be better to see it in a live play instead. To spend the time listening to the book or to spend it on a nice night out at a theatre, laughing and sharing it with friends would be much more enjoyable....go for the play! I found it ended too soon and left me wanting something more.

Speaking the Unspoken

Eve Ensler's stories are funny, moving, sad and sometimes thoroughly shocking - not for the frank and open discussion on vaginas but for revealing that such a massive part of women's - and men's - lives is largely taboo. Highly recommended.

Very good work but poor narration

Loved the book overall, deals with the subject clearly and with no hesitation, which is refreshing.

However, I didn't really enjoy the narration. I thought it was really unnatural and forced pretty much the whole time.
