The Female Persuasion Book Review

From my perspective, our early 20’s are our most formative years. We are no longer teenagers, but at the same time, we do not have the wisdom or experience that only comes with age.

In Meg Wolitzer’s new novel, The Female Persuasion, Greer Kadetsky is shy college student who meets 60’s and 70’s feminist icon Faith Frank after a lecture at Greer’s college. Greer becomes an instant fan girl. Like many young women, she is torn between personal/professional ambition and her relationship with her boyfriend, Corey. Meeting Faith ignites something in Greer and leads her, Corey and her best friend Zee on a path that no one sees coming.

 

I loved this book. I loved it because we can all relate to it somehow. Greer is a modern every woman, trying to make sense of it all, whether it is her relationships with Corey and Zee or the career path that she is following Faith on.

I recommend it.
