Genre: Humor, Non-fiction
Non-fiction is not a genre I consider to be funny but my views have changed recently and this book is one that helped shift my perspective. This book is a beautiful and funny slice-of-life novel that gives us a glimpse into Nora’s life. And to say it’s hilarious would be an understatement. Not to mention relatable. This book talks about events that we all go through in our lives in one way or another and this was my favorite part of the book. Especially when it comes to growing up and reaching an age where we are suffering from aches and wrinkles all the while trying to manage life and it’s various ups and downs.
The thing I loved most about this book is how raw and real it was. I could relate to almost every situation on a personal level even though I haven’t experienced most of the situations she described in her book, but I knew other people have gone through similar experiences because that’s just how life was. Moreover, she has thrown humor into the mix which just serves to make this an amazing read because you can’t help laughing at the character and situation she goes through.
There’s a lot to say about this book, but I feel like no matter what I say or how much I praise this book, I wouldn’t be able to do it justice. You just have to read this book in order to enjoy it. The pacing, the light, humorous stories and Nora herself really make this book worth your time.
Do give this book a shot. I’m telling you, you will not regret it. This is a rather short review but I feel like one can really get the true feel of this book when you actually read it. If you ever feel like reading a light-hearted non-fiction then pick this book up, as I feel like this book can really help lift your mood while at the same time it gives you food for thought.
Nora’s experiences and stories are extremely relatable and even while I was reading I felt I could relate to her. On some occasions I definitely thought that if I were in her position I’d feel or do the same.
So here’s my review of I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron. Let me know in the comments if you’ve read this book or if you plan on reading it. And if you have read this book, then do let me know your thoughts on it.
