    Sometimes it takes a friend to get you to read a book I Feel Bad About My Neck has been on my physical bookshelves for years I d look at it and look at my neck and think, Do you really want to read this book I ve got six friends on GR with the beautiful name of Julie but it was the clever one that wanted to be certain to stand out, the Julie preceded by a flower, that finally gave me the push to read this book Thank you.Heartburn, published in 1983 was my first encounter with Nora Ephron I remem [...]

    I listened to the audio book on CD, which is read by the author That was not the way to go with this one She has odd inflections and an unnatural reading cadence For example, she might read like this We lived pause in a white house pause and I didn t pause like it.Partly because of her reading style and partly because of the content, I had trouble getting into it It s supposed to be funny but isn t especially She describes all the maintenance older women do to keep up their appearances at great [...]

    Despite the clever and sometimes funny observations about aging, I couldn t shake the feeling that this book of essays wasivial Except for the final chapter Considering the Alternative , Ephron spends a lot of time writing about superficial aspects of growing older the skin on her neck, her disorganized purse, her worsening eyesight that make her seem shallow and self absorbed In the essay focused on all the hours she devotes to maintaining her appearance On Maintenance , she describes her react [...]

    It s been a rough couple yearsI mean days I grabbed this book off the shelf in the library and sat behind my son as he played some cartoony anatomy game wherein he places organs in the correct spot on a very happy looking skeleton even though I have noted several key organs are simply not therebut I digress Anyway, I really had to leave the library because I was cracking up This collection of essays includes some that are very funny and some that are less so but I had several laugh out loud mome [...]

    I was so sad for this book to come to an end I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Nora Ephron herself, which I so enjoyed because it was in such an amusing tone that no other narrator could have captured There were numerous wise and funny lines throughout that had me constantly rewindingjust so I could hear them again I hadn t heard of her books until she passed away, and although I was drawn to this catchy title, I don t think I could have fully appreciated it at that time since I wasn t qu [...]

    Sitting in a movie theater back in the eighties, not my eighties the 1980s, I am smiling, laughing, just having a good ol time when suddenly TERMS OF ENDEARMENT goes from funny to ominous to dark as turds that can signal upper g.i bleeding I m thinking, Shit, no, don t take this story there I m not walking out of a movie with Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson in it that fact means watching a character who s about my age die of cancer She s got three young kids I have one and one baking in the [...]

    Ose am se lo e zbog svog vrata sam kupio svojevremeno na nekoj Deretinoj akciji na kojoj je doti na knjiga bila na neverovatnom popustu prvenstveno kao posledicu ponovljenog gledanja skoro pa kultnog filma When Harry Met Sally Iako je tekst na koricama obe avao kako e Norin humor da razoru a itaoca i da e postojati momenti kada e se itaoci smejati na sav glas ti momenti su kod mene izostali Bilo je momenata kada su se usne blago izvile u neki poluosmeh ili je to mo da bio gr jer je na momente Ef [...]

    The thing is this Nora and I are not sisters In On Maintenance When and how did it happen that you absolutely had to have a manicure er, never I also don t care that much about make up or matching handbags or wrinkles I JUST REALLY DON T CARE What I care about is women being raped, beaten up, paid less,not let in, talked down to and generally fucked over because they are women I Feel Bad About My Neck adopts a universal voice but talks only about a sliver of privileged society It is feminism lit [...]

    This was such a charming book Aging is clearly very fraught and the sharp wit of the essays in this book is quite wonderful.

  10. Barbara

    Multi talented Nora Ephron was a journalist, director, and author In her heyday Ephron wrote the screenplays for some very popular movies including Julie and Julia , You ve Got Mail , Sleepless in Seattle , When Harry Met Sally , and Silkwood This audiobook read by the author contains a collection of humorous essays written when Ephron was 60 years oldd stopped having birthdays In fact Ephron notes that, upon publication of this book, she ll have been 60 for five years ha ha ha As might be expec [...]

  11. Lain

    Nora Ephron is, hands down, one of the funniest women in America Her novels, movies, and essay collections have brought me to tears by way of laughter than once That s why I was a bit disappointed by this collection of essays, loosely tied around the topic of aging The essays on aging were amusing, but not particularly funny or fresh It was like eating a day old doughnut still tasty, but probably not worth all the calories The weird thing her non age related essays were brilliant The piece on h [...]

  12. Sandy T

    So I bought this book thinking it was going to be full of humor about what happens to women when they reach that certain age I was expecting to relate to and be amused by her musings about getting older And that did happen certain chapters really made me smile, and I could relate to than I would like to admit But for about half the chapters, the only people who might relate to it would be rich, famous, New York socialites That obviously doesn t describe me, so even though her writing was engagi [...]

    Here s the thing, I would ve never listened to this book if it weren t for the fact that years ago I gifted it to someone in those last few moments of Christmas oh shit I forgot to buy that person a gift hysteria I was married at the time and was, by default, put in charge of figuring out what EVERYONE should be given My mother in law and I had a so so relationship I mean she did accuse me of purposely putting pins in her bed when she stayed the night and got poked a few times with left over rem [...]

    It s unavoidable, we are all growing old And in this book, Nora Ephron has decided to tackle some of the obvious annoyances of aging I have to say that when I first started this book, I thought, Wow, she REALLY doesn t like herself But as the narrative continued, I realized that Ephron simply addressed the issues that all women grapple with as they are aging And she does it in a highly humorous way.The audiobook was great I m sure the print version was entertaining as well, but I highly doubt t [...]

    For most of you who are my friends, you will be too young to really appreciate the humor in this book after all, you still have firm, unwrinkled necks which you have probably never even given a single thought BUT take my word for it, someday you will And then, you should run right out and find a copy of this book Perhaps you can find one cheap in the garage sales that members of my generation will be having as we downsize into assisted living apartments Anyway, when it comes to the realities of [...]

  16. Negin

    I love Nora Ephron and wish that she was still alive so that I could continue to enjoy her witty and funny style of writing Funny is something that I seem to crave these days This is only her second book that I ve read It s a quick read and a particularly enjoyable one Every parent should read her chapter Parent in Three Stages I desperately needed that

  17. Phillip Smith

    It won t change your life, but it is quite a treat for a sunny afternoon I read most of it lying in the sunshine on my bed shortly after lunch on a Saturday.Ephron, like Sedaris Degeneres, has a gift for expressing mundane thoughts in the most delightful phrases The one that s in my head right now is when she describes loving cabbage strudel in the 1960s I don t want to get too sentimental, but it s practically the only thing I remember about my first marriage You ll be chuckling the whole way t [...]

    fromichelle 2008 I ve finished another bookI Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora EphronI like Nora She s real And she s smart Nice combination Add in the fact that she shares her wisdom freely, and also in a funny way, and it makes her even better.I could have written her exact words on reading Reading is everything Reading makes me feel I ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person Reading makes me smarter Reading gives me something to talk about later on Reading is the unbe [...]

    Ephron is better known as a screen writer, in particular for When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle, films with some very funny moments and strong observations about the human psyche and relationships In this little book, she turns the spotlight back on herself It is a collection of articles and essays with titles such as I Hate My Handbag and What I Wish I d Known as well as other things that affect a aging Manhattenite.It is written as a fairly honest account of her life, but whilst it [...]

    I have to say I m a little baffled by Nora Ephron She was in intern in the JFK White House and had a free pass to roam its halls She was a reporter at Newsweek in the 1960 s, before they even had female reporters She s been married three times One of her husbands was Pulitzer Prize winner Carl Bernstein of the Watergate scandal And when he had an affair it wasn t just with any old woman, but with the wife of the British ambassador to the United States She s been nominated for three academy award [...]

    I read this to have a frivolous, light audiobook during travel And it does fit the bill Yet I seem to have lost some of my ability to enjoy frivolous memoir It was not all that way I enjoyed very much the section on food, which had hefty helpings of pride and self deprecation in good measure I think younger women will not enjoy this book as much and it has nothing to do with much of the subject matter being aging I want to talk about aging I found much of it insightful The problem is that Ephro [...]

  22. Seth Fiegerman

    I m not a woman Nor am I a parent or a successful screenwriter or a particularly ambitious cook But I still found myself nodding my head over and over as I related to Ephron s insights on life She writes plainly but with great humor and candidness about her abusive relationship with her apartment building, why parenting is about quantity time than quality time and how something always seems to go wrong when she tries to exercise It s the portions about New York that really got me, though She do [...]

  23. Eli

    A book you could easily appreciate if you are a woman over thirty The title drew me in the moment I saw it at the library book sale I d never read anything by Nora Ephron before this, but I can say this will not be my last.Ephron tackles some of the uncomfortable topics that plague aging women but does them with such sass and spunk that I couldn t help but laugh out loud on several occasions I loved one essay that talked about the painfulness of your body hair removal regimen but reminded me ho [...]

    At first I thought This is just not something that I can ever in any way understand or comiserate with Nora Ephron is filthy rich, twice thrice divorced, extreamly successful in her career, living in Manhattan, and 64 years old She begins with a long discourse on the pain in the neck ness of having to dye her hair to illiminate gray I am at least 10% gray and not in the least bit upset or willing to do a thing about it , the ins and outs of purchasing expensive handbags never, ever crossed my mi [...]

    Reading is everything Reading makes me feel like I ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person Reading makes me smarter This was a fun essay collection I listened to the audio, narrated by Ephron, and very much liked her delivery and dry sense of humor PS This is where I admit I didn t realize she was such a prolific screenplay writer I mean, I obviously know the films, I just didn t know she wrote them.

  26. Erica

    CRAP I am of an age that I now empathize with these stories instead of just finding them amusing.Damnation.Ok I don t relate to all the stories For instance, I don t live in an apt in NYC, though I do completely understand having a ridiculous amount of love for one s home and community.I don t do the maintenance thing Well, except now I ve started paying attention to my neck because maybe these last few years or months of preventative measures will make a difference Consider the Alternative was [...]

  27. Rebecca Foster

    Just the right book for a woman of a certain age or any age Ephron is funny and good natured, never feeling sorry for herself as she points out the absurdities in how women try to turn back the clock, performing maintenance as if they were half broken jalopies, only just holding together This alongside Diana Athill s Somewhere Towards the End would provide a good balanced tone This collection is also, somewhat surprisingly, very wise on the subject of reading From Blind as a Bat Reading is one o [...]

  28. Barbara Rice

    I have a love hate relationship with Nora Ephron On the one hand, she s a Democrat, so I feel a certain allegience with her I want to like her Sometimes I actually get what she s saying.Other times I think, can you hear yourself Is that really what you think Are you that vapid She makes a point, a brilliant point, then suddenly punctures it with a denigrating remark perhaps to keep us from taking her too seriously, perhaps to make us laugh but it detsroys the momentum and lets us down.So she goe [...]

  29. Bookmarks Magazine

    Nora Ephron, best known for her screenplays When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and Silkwood and best sellers Heartburn and Crazy Salad, has written a sort of Ephron retrospective Though humorously self deprecating and poignant, critics agree that the essays, some published previously,are uneven Readers may love I Hate My Purse __unless they find it outdated Other essays came off as vain, stale, or elitist in their carefree attitude toward luxury items Only Considering the Alternative re [...]
