This book would have been more appropriately titled, "Conversations with a Foul Mouth". I made it all the way to page 20, and while it felt like it could have been a promising story with good points and throught provoking content I just couldn't take the F bomb, which was dropped about 6 times in those twenty pages. Since I didn't feel invested in the book I decided not to read it. It's not often that I quit reading a book, and I encounter swears in my reading adventures often. But once I am emotionally invested in the story, I don't stop reading it unless it all of a sudden gets pornographic. So far I have only run in to one or two of those. And they are not hard to put down. With this one though I couldn't believe all the swears right from the start. The sad thing is that the author is so obviously an intelligent person who was trying to portray intelligent women in her book, but I'm sorry, even though I sometimes think swears can be comical, mostly I think it makes people sound dumb. I'm sure Liza Palmer is capable of writing a book using words to express ideas that are powerful without foul language, but she was not doing that in this book. So needless to say, I would not recommend this book.
*** Blogger note: I intentionally use the word "Swears" instead of "swear words" or "swearing" because I think it is funny. And it illustrates my point that people who use swears as part of their everyday vocabularly are showing their lack of ability to inteligently express themselves.***
