Book Review: What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding

I received this book free for an honest review. The thing is, I really expected to like this. I’m unmarried (though obviously not single), have no children, and I love to travel. I thought it would be funny and that it would be more about being an  independent woman, that the author would at least be an interesting person. She’s pretty much not any of those things or at least she doesn’t come across that way in her book. Instead it’s just a long account of self indulgence and sex with lots of men in other countries while she complains about being single at home. I don’t actually care how many men she had sex with, that isn’t my beef with this book. But that alone doesn’t make someone interesting enough for me to want to read about them. And the biggest thing for me is that it wasn’t funny, which for a comedy writer is kind of a let down. Made for a fairly boring read. The saddest thing is that I’m sure there are plenty of women out there who could have done a book like this justice. Just not her, I guess.
