The Well-Read Commuter Reviews: Just Don't Call Me Ma'am
What this book is about:
Anna Mitchael has a few tales to tell about her twenties and they are hilariously touching. Join her as she gets her first Brazilian wax, dumped and left alone in her New York apartment, navigates endless stints as a bridesmaid, explains to her Texas grandmother why she is a vegetarian and finds herself along the way.
What did you think of this book:
The only word I can think of to describe this book is delicious! I could not wait to finish the book. The writing is divinely rich as Mitchael tells a variety of tales of her loves, lessons and adventures that made up her twenties. The stories are conveyed with wry humor, but they weren’t too heavy on the sarcasm and I thought the blend was just perfect. If you are in your twenties, then you will see the book as a companion guide as you attempt to find yourself. If you have moved on from your twenties you will find yourself wanting to reminisce your own twenty something adventures with Michael over a few good drinks, even though you know her stories will trump yours. Overall, a great read and the type of book that gets passed around your circle of girlfriends. You know the type of book where you just hand it to your friend, completely unsolicited, and say you have to read this? This is one of those books.
