#bookofthemonth : The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Lately, I have been trying to be more mindful of not getting caught in watching all the damn TV. I am one of those people who has a PVR full of shows and if I start watching I seem to need to finish it all in one weekend. Because of this I have been getting less and less reading done - I m like wayyyy and I mean WAY behind on my goodreads challenge. So I started reading every night before bed. The last book I read The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer after numerous people have recommended it.

"Greer Kadetsky is a shy college freshman when she meets the woman she hopes will change her life. Faith Frank, dazzlingly persuasive and elegant at sixty-three, has been a central pillar of the women's movement for decades, a figure who inspires others to influence the world. Upon hearing Faith speak for the first time, Greer--madly in love with her boyfriend, Cory, but still full of longing for an ambition that she can't quite place--feels her inner world light up. Then, astonishingly, Faith invites Greer to make something out of that sense of purpose, leading Greer down the most exciting path of her life as it winds toward and away from her meant-to-be love story with Cory and the future she'd always imagined."

The reviews are all over the place but I enjoyed the book a lot. The story is narrated from different points of view but the mail character is  Greer Kadetsky. The book follows her beginnings as a teenager all the way to adulthood. Her search for meaningful work and the disappointments she encounters along the way. There was tragedy, love, hardship, feminism, political topics, friendship, betrayal, and so much more.
