Book Review| "I Feel Bad About My Neck" by Nora Ephron



For most people that know, Nora Ephron is one of my role models. I truly wouldn't be the writer that I am if it wasn't for this woman. Ranging from films (Sleepless In Seattle, You've Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, etc.) to her books (I Feel Bad About My Neck, I Remember Nothing, and Heartburn), she has a way of telling stories about real life in a way that catches me. No matter what it is, she is completely honest about it. They're always funny and on point.


During the past three weeks, I finally had some time to read her book I Feel Bad About My Neck. In the beginning, I thought I wasn't going to read this book. It contains mostly about female problems and I am a male with none of those problems at all. But in the end, I took the chance to read this book. How can I call her one of my role models if I don't read everything she's written?


By the time I read the first page, I thought wrong. I fell in love with it instantly.


The books contains story about her life as a journalist, reflections of her divorces, the way she arrived at New York City, etc. Inside, you will read the way she describes a purse as a hopeless disorganization or a chronic inability to throw anything away. It's a collection of stories that will make you laugh out loud. This book contains a story for everyone to fall in love with.


I highly recommend this book to everyone. I Feel Bad About My Neck is another outstanding work of literature from a woman that I am proud to call one of my role models.


Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to cook like a maniac while watching When Harry Met Sally for the one millionth time.
