Roar – Book Review



Cecelia Ahern has written a feminist collection of short stories which tells of women in all their glorious diversity.

Each tale starts with a title which begins –  The Woman Who……

It is set in the present alongside the movement of #MeToo, and covers what it feels like to be a woman nowadays, a wife, mother or struggling as a refugee too. It touches on the real issues of equality and justice. 

The basic things Women have to endure,  such as birth control, the pressure of feelings of guilt, humiliation by others, the battle with aging and how we cope with the pressure to conform to the ‘norm’. 

It’s an easy book to read as each tale is short enough to be able to dip into in a busy day, with plenty of humour. A good, thought provoking read. 

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
