Summary

Take a funny and illuminating tour of the female body with award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe.
Women have so much going on, what with boobs and jealousy and menstruating and broodiness and sex and infidelity and pubes and wombs and jobs and memories and emotions and the past and the future and themselves and each other.
Here's a book that deals with all of it. Sara Pascoe has joked about femininity and sexuality on stage and screen, but now she has a book to talk about it all for a bit longer. Animal combines autobiography and evolutionary history to create a funny, fascinating insight into the forces that mould and affect modern women.
Read for you by the author, Animal is entertaining and informative, personal and universal - silly about lots of things and serious about some. It's a laugh-out-loud investigation to help us understand and forgive our animal urges and insecurities.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Entertaining and conversation starting

I love this audiobook. The author tackles tough subjects with clarity, sensitivity and humour. She balances facts, opinions and personal anecdotes to explore the history and biology of women. I would recommend this book to everyone - Young and old, male and female!

clever great wonderful important book

What did you like most about Animal?

Its honesty, clear, well researched and reasoned. It was thoughtful and invites discussion. Such vital stuff for so many men and women: human animals.

It was also very funny and I had to rewind bits because I was laughing out loud

What did you like best about this story?

Some of the science and ideas were new to me and i loved that. Its wonderful and sad that this book wasn't around when I was 12
She walked the tightrope of discussing emotive and vital topics, in an intelligent and open way. Which is SO hard to do when the topics are SO important. And actually made them funny with out removing the seriousness, which is impressive

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Her teenage experiences/ experiences as a woman, and all the science stuff.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes and pretty much did.

Any additional comments?

Thanks for writing this book Sara! if you are listening and read the comments

an excellent read-listen

you 'd think that being 35 and a woman you know most of what relates to women's body or behaviour... think again! Once I started listening I couldn't stop. The book is enjoyable and extra bonus you get to learn a few things about your body and why you behave the way you behave or feel the way you feel. Especially towards the end I had to stoo a few times to think things through and find where I stand on some points. Totally recomend it.
