Very well thought out and interesting take on why it took women so long to make an impact in the literary world. If you enjoy the writing of Virginia Woolf, you will definitely take a liking to this.
Enjoyable, but bland

I like the hits on this (Reptilia, 12:51), but after awhile they all start sounding alike. Not bad to listen to once or twice, but it doesn't lend itself to prolonged listening.
Highly Enjoyable

If you enjoyed On the Edge, you will definitely like this. It takes place in the same universe, but follows William and a new character, Cerise. Ilona Andrews seems to be taking a similar approach to this series that Kelley Armstrong did in her "Women of the Otherworld" series: keeping in the same world, but constantly shifting character focus. It really makes it seem like this is a fully realized world, and I enjoy seeing different facets of it. As much as I adore the Kate Daniels series, the universe doesn't seem quite as rich as this one. Worth picking up, if you enjoy fantasy.
Fantastic

If you love this movie, you should definitely check out the blu-ray version. The special features alone make it worth it. I especially enjoyed the one entitled, "Becoming Mr. Sherman" that featured a conversation on how Jason Schwartzman met Richard Sherman and their relationship while filming Saving Mr. Banks.
Adequate Baseline

I would say if this has any downfalls it is that the focus is definitely on high fashion. She goes into great detail on each topic (tops, jeans, accessories, etc.) and gives hypothetical shops to find pieces, but the majority are high fashion designers. It does contain many useful tips, such as how to make sure the length of your jeans are correct. If you are looking for a way to start improving your personal style, I would say that this is a good book to find a foundation but don't rely on it if you can't afford designer everything as it isn't tilted towards affordability.
