How to be Famous Pdf Summary Reviews By Caitlin Moran

How to be Famous Pdf Summary

A hilarious, heartfelt sequel to How to Build a Girl, the breakout novel from feminist sensation Caitlin Moran who the New York Times called, “rowdy and fearless . . . sloppy, big-hearted and alive in all the right ways.”

You can’t have your best friend be famous if you’re not famous. It doesn’t work. You’re emotional pen-friends. You can send each other letters—but you’re not doing anything together. You live in different countries.

Johanna Morrigan (AKA Dolly Wilde) has it all: at eighteen, she lives in her own flat in London and writes for the coolest music magazine in Britain. But Johanna is miserable. Her best friend and man of her dreams John Kite has just made it big in 1994’s hot new BritPop scene. Suddenly John exists on another plane of reality: that of the Famouses.

Never one to sit on the sidelines, Johanna hatches a plan: she will Saint Paul his Corinthians, she will Jimmy his Pinocchio—she will write a monthly column, by way of a manual to the famous, analyzing fame, its power, its dangers, and its amusing aspects. In stories, girls never win the girl—they are won. Well, Johanna will re-write the stories, and win John, through her writing.

But as Johanna’s own star rises, an unpleasant one-night stand she had with a stand-up comedian, Jerry Sharp, comes back to haunt in her in a series of unfortunate consequences. How can a girl deal with public sexual shaming? Especially when her new friend, the up-and-coming feminist rock icon Suzanne Banks, is Jimmy Cricketing her?

For anyone who has been a girl or known one, who has admired fame or judged it, and above all anyone who loves to laugh till their sides ache, How to Be Famous is a big-hearted, hilarious tale of fame and fortune-and all they entail.


How to be Famous Review (Amazon)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great until…..

This was an enjoyable read. It wasn’t until the final couple of chapters that it went off the rails and into the weeds of grandiose self regard. Strongly autobiographical the climax of the story was so profoundly unlikely that it was an insult to the readers intelligence. And the painful declarations of love to the protagonist were self indulgent boastful nonsense. The author has an inflated self esteem that ruined an otherwise competent novel. Yes…we get it…you’re awesome but self praise is no recommendation.

I couldn’t put this book down, I read it in about two days. I don’t know how she does it, but somehow Caitlin Moran is able to accurately take experiences and feelings so many young women have had and publish them, but make it funnier and more dramatic and just BETTER through the eyes of Dolly Wilde. Is it strange to want to be best friends with a fictional character? Because I need to hang out with Dolly (while at one of John’s or The Brank’s gigs).


5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I’ve read in a while..

It’s so fun to be blown away by a book you take a chance on. The book seemed like a great vacation read but Caitlin Moran has a true gift for baking in edgy, thought-provoking, richly descriptive, surprise sub-topics in what I thought was just going to be a fun romp of a book. It was a great, truly fun romp..I laughed out loud several times..but it was also a smart love letter to women. A great book! Highly recommend!

About Caitlin Moran Author Of How to be Famous Pdf Book

Caitlin Moran had literally no friends in 1990, and so had plenty of time to write her first novel, The Chronicles of Narmo, at the age of fifteen. At sixteen she joined music weekly, Melody Maker, and at eighteen briefly presented the pop show ‘Naked City’ on Channel 4. Following this precocious start she then put in eighteen solid years as a columnist on The Times – both as a TV critic and also in the most-read part of the paper, the satirical celebrity column ‘Celebrity Watch’ – winning the British Press Awards’ Columnist of The Year award in 2010 and Critic and Interviewer of the Year in 2011. The eldest of eight children, home-educated in a council house in Wolverhampton, Caitlin read lots of books about feminism – mainly in an attempt to be able to prove to her brother, Eddie, that she was scientifically better than him. Caitlin isn’t really her name. She was christened ‘Catherine’. But she saw ‘Caitlin’ in a Jilly Cooper novel when she was 13 and thought it looked exciting. That’s why she pronounces it incorrectly: ‘Catlin’. It causes trouble for everyone.
