On a miserable January morning Sarah is sitting on a plane to Tenerife -- dickheads' destination of choice -- for a week-long getaway. She's just realised that she's very angry and becoming a bitter bitch, despite being just thirty years old. With her on the plane she has a copy of Erica Jong's Fear of Flying and wishes it were 1975 instead of 2005. Angry and candid, Bitter Bitch is an uncompromising novel, at the heart of which is one of the most important women's issues: how can we ever have an egalitarian society when we can't even live in equality with those we love?

Blazingly honest and so much to relate to if you've been through marriage and children, and if you can look at the roles of men and women and get pissed that we still are expected to give everything up to serve our families, but a man is praised for "helping". That's just one example of many essays. I'm 58 and thought it was a great book, very brave.

OK, so the title and the description alerted me to the fact that this book wasn't about kittens and rainbows. That being said, I found it to be a nasty-spirited rant by a middle-class woman about her first-world problems. No entertainment value whatsoever.

If you've ever been a parent, been a mom or just tired of life, there's a lot that's real and believable about the character in this book.
