REVIEW: Moranifesto

“Your key hobbies need to be long country walks (get some fresh air in your lungs!), masturbation and the revolution.”


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


This is my kind of book. It’s my kind of tone, my kind of issues and my kind of humour. I really enjoyed it, but I was sort of destined to. What I like about Caitlin Moran’s books is that even though they’re very much suited to me, she still challenges my opinions, and I actually disagree with her on quite a few things. But that’s one of the main reasons I keep reading.


I love her honesty and wit, especially on topics which people don’t address enough. I spent the whole time during her essay on wanting to ban homework screaming ‘PREACH’ in my head (it is beyond stupid and I plan to boycott it through my children, poor them).


My only criticism is a personal one which shouldn’t really affect anyone else’s experience of the book; I just dislike how much she talks about drinking and getting wasted. I don’t drink and I don’t like it when people glamourise it (intentionally or not). Like I said, that’s a very personal thing to me, but that said, it doesn’t really take anything away from the book itself.

Overall, what I expected. I would happily recommend.


Ps. Her interview with Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever pictured in my head.
