Although somewhat exaggerated (I don't have quite as many thoughts about shoes as Alice K. does), Alice K.'s Guide to Life does convey how it feels to be female or even human in an original, entertaining,amusing, and sometimes heartwrenching way. I do sometimes feel indecisive and foolish and petty and stuck and loved and in love and grateful and wishful and lucky and silly and Alice K. (Caroline Knapp) sums it all up in a slightly satirical, slightly sympathetic, sometimes honest, sometimes cryptic way. <BR/>Although I don't usually go for the modern-girl-"chick-lit" type book, there is more to this book than what it seems like on the surface, something like a deeper understanding of the psychology of the characters that makes them seem like people you know, or people you may someday be. The writing isn't always perfect, but its good for an easy read that might leave you thinking.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
