    Growing Older With 'Flair'

    I read a review on this book and ordered it from my local library in Tennessee. I tried to borrow it while I was in San Diego for a month, however, there was a waiting list of 122. Does that tell you something? When I got back to TN the book was waiting for me. Real in every sense of the word - but, you need to have a dry sense of humor to find this book funny, or should I say - you need to have a humorous personality to understand it. I loved this book so much, I have ordered a copy for myself. I repeatedly went back over chapters that meant something to me - all of them, that's how closely these chapters match my own life. They read quickly as there are only a few pages in each chapter. I am going to buy all of her books, that's how much of an imaginary mentor she is to me. You've got to read this book if you are 60 or over, especially if you're having a bad day as this book will put a smile on your face for all the right reasons. I love the chapter on the Purse.

    I expected more

    Let me start by saying that I LOVE Nora Ephron. I love her wit, her sense of humor, her movies and I will go so far as to say I think we have similar outlooks on life.
    I did not however, love this book.
    I really did expect more. I felt that most of the book was just "filler". I found the NY real estate chapter of her book interesting but there wasn't one chapter that grabbed me.
    I'm sorry Nora, but this was kind of forgettable.
    I will end on an upbeat note by saying I loved the cover and I hope that you come out with a new movie soon.

    A reviewer

    This is beyond funny. Her choice of words is absolutely perfect. My words can not convey the absolute necessity of reading this book for any woman over that age where we start seeing our necks in the mirror and wanting a change. For you that may be 35 or 65 but when that is becomes the time for this to be a MUST read!

    I Feel Good about this Book

    Great, in fact because this book made me laugh repeatedly about something I find the opposite of funny. Ephron, who's still running circles around younger writers, reveals how it feels to face life in the not-as-fast lane. Especially good are her discriptions of mishaps and misadventures and the ways she gets over and goes through some of the inevitable albeit unexpected challenges. Just wonderful reading, particulary for people who can't read without their glasses.

    HILARIOUS

    Nora Ehron is right on target with her hilarious view of women's experiences. A BIG chuckle in an overly serious world.

    Getting Older

    Funny, entertaining, and right on the spot of women's pet peeves and foibles! Not great literature but the kind of female soul food needed when one gest older, the things to discuss only between females, because it only pertains to us.

    (Mostly) Humorous Take on Aging

    It's hard to stop once you begin reading any of the essays in this book. I particularly enjoyed those that followed the title's suggested theme: women getting older. Like a reviewer below, I had a more difficult time relating to the woes of someone who must pay $12,000 monthly for an Manhattan apartment as opposed to $10,000. But most of the book was spot-on and hilarious. The final chapter on facing mortality struck a contrasting and very poignant note.

    Hey, I liked it

    Funny, but I was thinking the same thing about MY neck and saw the title of this book. I've read many a Roberts book but this one is the best. Funny and sad at the same time, I really enjoyed it.

    Excellent!

    After seeing Nora on Oprah along with some other aging women, I was slightly interested in her book. Then, when I went to the bookstore I saw it and instantly knew that it was the book I wanted to purchase..and I don't regret it! I laughed outloud to this book. I reccomend this to any woman..and I am only 16!

    She's just FUNNY

    If you're like the lady who can't appreciate the humor because Nora Ephrom makes more money than she does (making her an elitist? Pu-lease! You COULD just see the it all as metaphorical examples instead of being the snob yourself.)- then don't bother because you'll be wasting your time. Otherwise, if you appreciate dry wit - the kind that sounds like Tom Hanks when he was emailing Meg Ryan in 'You've Got Mail' - you will love this book. I read chapters of it on my lunch hour and always went back to my desk chuckling. I giggled uncontrollably throughout and insisted on reading parts aloud to my husband, hairdresser, best friend... whoever would listen. I LOVE her tongue-in-cheek humor and delightful take on the commonplace. I would recommend this book to any woman over 59 (my age, ya see). Nora even makes me want to be a better writer.

    Lighthearted and Enjoyable

    Just before falling asleep I found myself laughing out loud at her various efforts. (Her reaction to an exercise program was halarious.) I think others will relate to the events in her life as much as I did and maybe even learn something from her life experiences.

    I Could Identify With This One

    Since I am the exact age as the author, I really enjoyed hearing her tell "my story" as well as her own (I listen to audio books). I like Nora's writing style and will definitely order future books from this writer. I especially like books that are read by the author as opposed to voice over artists. The actual author lends true emotion to each sentence as they tell it like it is. This was good for a few laughs.

    I'd like my time and money back!

    What a sad commentary and a complete bore!  I'd like my time and money returned.  Unless you want to be completely depressed...avoid this one!

    SO funny - especially the audiobook!!

    I love this book, and the author even more. The audiobook is even better - her comic timing and choice of words are perfect! I could listen to this over and over again. I'll be able to relate more with each passing year. It sure takes the pain out of long commutes.

    quick read

    This book is a series of modestly related essays. Although I live in a large urban area, I suspect I would have found some of it funnier if I were a New Yorker.

    Also, it's a very short book.

    Oh, stop complaining--give this book a pass

    I have the audio book and her delivery is so slow you hear the "jokes" coming a mile away. I hope she did this to stretch it out for several hours because I sure would hate to sit next to her at a dinner party. It is basically the story of a self-centered New Yorker who wants us to believe that she sits at the center of the universe but finds it Oh so silly! She has her hair done bi-weekly at a salon, had an apartment that cost her a "finder's fee" than many Americans make in a year (in 1980?), has numerous injections, waxes, anaylsis, etc. to make her feel young yet complains about the cost when her kids call information for numbers instead of using the phone book! Get real. Just a spoiled rich woman who thinks others may find this kvetching point of view funny. Maybe they do at the country club, but for the rest of us, give it a pass! Many other better humor books out there that deal with aging than this bagatelle.

    Good gift idea for your women friends

    This was a great read, especially when you are old enough to 'know what she means'. I'm giving this book to all my women friends this coming holiday season.

    Very disappointing

    I expected so much from this book, don't understand it being a bestseller. I didn't even finish it. I'm glad I bought it used and didn't pay full price for it.
