Summary

A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, The Vagina Monologues is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities and colleges throughout the world, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement, V-Day, to stop violence against women.

Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.

Dissapointed, info we already know

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I thought this audio was the same as the theatre play, but the first chapters were all about awareness, no fun in them. Well known info I think we already have...

Tone is grotesque

The tone is grotesque, makes it sound vulgar, distracts from the text which is worth exploring.

what was all the fuss about?

When she eventually gets round to the monologues (after what seems like half an hour of "credits" and press-cutting type reviews), some are funny, some are sad, some are bordering on pornographic. What was all the fuss about? It isn't a set of first-world female experiences to which I can relate, though granted some of the tales were from women older than me. Or perhaps that was the point? They were women who maybe shouldn't have had those experiences in the late 20th or early 21st centuries in what we believe to be a civilised, broad-minded and inclusive culture.
