Summary

I am woman. Hear me roar. 

Original, honest and thought-provoking, Roar is Cecelia Ahern's unforgettable story collection. 

With her trademark honesty, Cecelia Ahern gives us 30 linked stories, all titled 'The Woman Who...', that capture the different facets of women's lives. Humorous, moving, surreal and poignant, the stories capture the moments the characters are overwhelmed by guilt, confusion, frustration, intimidation, exhaustion - the private moments when they feel the need to roar. 

From 'The Woman Who Slowly Disappeared' to 'The Woman Who Returned and Exchanged Her Husband', discover an extraordinary collection that will resonate with listeners everywhere.

Not for me

I always loved Cecilia's books but I have not enjoyed this one or Flawed. I couldn't get past the 3rd or 4th chapter.
Sorry

Amazing book and amazing narrative - feminist genius

It’s almost like Cecilia Ahern has crawled into the head of every woman to create this modern feminist gem of a book. There’s a story here for us all and not just one, I struggle to pick a favourite and identify with plenty. A funny moral for today’s world. Read it or listen to it and be moved.

Beautifully Crafted

A remarkable collection that all women AND men should listen to. Her usual way of seeing the mundane differently.

lose yourself to find yourself

Fun fiction resonating with strong emotional messages. Though focused on women these sassy snapshots relate to all walks of humanity
