I really loved her show Girls, but I was nervous reading this based on the mixed reviews. I did enjoy it. She's quite the character. #37 #2019

#MoreMehThanYeah If you haven‘t read this already, I wouldn‘t really recommend it.

While I appreciate Dunham‘s accomplishments, she certainly had a leg up with family and general NYC connections. There‘s nothing inherently wrong with having a privileged upbringing, but she just doesn‘t acknowledge that a lot of what she “learned” was due to that. 3⭐️

PS I do like how she stood up for women‘s health!

#TimbitTunes Lena Dunham is #ThatGirl a modern day Brooklynite; outspoken & frank. Crude and unapologetic her “memoir” struck me as a little too self indulgent. As I‘m really not a fan of the HBO series Girls, nor do I follow Lena Dunham on Social Media her book of shared lessons was a waste of time for me.

mrsh62010 She‘s a terrible person. 12mo
Cinfhen She didn‘t come across as remarkable or special, that‘s for sure @mrsh62010 😉 12mo
TrishB Never seen or read, but don‘t think I‘m the demographic for this! 12mo

Susannah She‘s very problematic, but I don‘t know that I would say she‘s a terrible person. She just strikes me as the epitome of all the worst impulses of Millenials—she‘s never had a thought she didn‘t think it vital to share—and she reeks of privilege that she gives only superficial acknowledgement. (And much of the above is my age coming out. Now get off my lawn, Lena Dunham!😁) (edited) 12mo
Cathythoughts I don‘t know this one at all ... sounds perfect for prompt ♥️👍🏻 12mo
Cinfhen I agree @Susannah she does embody the worst of millennials and you‘re probably right too @TrishB I was/am the wrong audience for her shtick 12mo
Cinfhen I think you can skip this book @Cathythoughts it didn‘t hold too much literary merit 😜 12mo
KarenUK I‘m not a huge fan either, but I think to write, act and produce a very popular show at such a young age is pretty amazing, particularly when she has major health challenges. It‘s worth reading the chapter about her in this book. Reading all the comments here reminded me of it. (edited) 12mo
KarenUK She‘s definitely someone that people react strongly too! 😂 12mo
Cinfhen I think you raise a good point @KarenUK don‘t have to be a fan or agree with everything she says or does to recognize she has accomplished quite a lot in her young life. 12mo
TheKidUpstairs I was never a fan of Girls, and I've never really connected with Lena Dunham. I think I'm just that little bit too old. But I agree with @KarenUK she has accomplished a lot for such a young woman, so I will tip my hat to her for that. 12mo
LeahBergen I was a fan of Girls but not a big fan of this book. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 12mo
teebe I agree with @mrsh62010 . And a lot of the issues with her re: privilege, racism, etc. aren‘t generational. The one thing that‘s very millennial about her is her own belief in how “feminist” and “woke” she is (then again, hippies in the 60s were the same 🤷🏻‍♀️) (edited) 12mo
Cinfhen I think it‘s Lena Dunham @TheKidUpstairs @LeahBergen @teebe she‘s just not “personable” and I think it‘s part age/ immaturity and part upbringing #MyTwoCents Thankfully there are MANY more young women who are role models and people to admire 12mo

As promised, Dunham lays it all unflinching, uncomfortably bare.
What I like about memoirs written by people this young is you get to see what interests them just by virtue of what topics they write about. This book focuses on art, education, mental and physical health, sex, family, body image. But makes almost no mention of politics, money, social justice, technology or hundreds of other issues cause they‘re clearly not focuses in Dunham‘s life.

Ich könnte so viel kritisieren, aber wenn ich einmal anfange, höre ich nicht mehr auf, fürchte ich.

Was bleibt, ist das Gefühl, dass Lena keine Freunde/Eltern hatte, die sie wieder in die Spur gesetzt/ihr Grenzen aufgezeigt haben. Sie kommt mir ein bisschen vor wie das „arme, reiche Mädchen“.

Wenn das der neue heiße Sch**ß ist, dann gute Nacht.

julesG Autsch! 1y
Buechersuechtling @julesG Der „Zeit“-Artikel oder meine Aussage❓ es kann natürlich auch einfach sein, dass es mir geht, wie jeder Generation mit der nach ihr, dass sie nicht mehr versteht. 1y
julesG Beides. Dein Review ist gut und der Zeit-Artikel auch. Ich glaube, mit der Generation tue ich mich auch sehr schwer. 1y
Buechersuechtling @julesG Dem möchte ich zumindest in Teilen widersprechen. Ich kenne einige Leute, die dieser Generation angehören und niemand von denen ist oder verhält sich vergleichbar. (edited) 1y
julesG Die Frage ist, Altersgruppe oder Generation? Ich gehöre einer bestimmten Altersgruppe an, zähle mich aber nicht zur gleichen Generation bzw irgendwie gehöre ich zu mehr als einer Generation. Anyway, ich bezog mich mehr auf die Generation der "Girl" fans und somit auf die Lenas; es sind nicht alle Lenas, die Mitte Zwanzig sind. Zum Glück. 1y

Schon als ich mit dem Hörbuch begonnen habe, habe ich mich übrigens gefragt, was für eine Art Mädchen Lena nicht ist.
Dazu findet sich in dem ganzen Buch keine Aussage. Das wiederum passt aber zu Lena: viel heiße Luft.

Versteht mich richtig, es anzuhören tat nicht weh und es hat tatsächlich ein bis drei Stellen mit erzählenswerten Aussagen, aber für alle mit gesundem Menschenverstand und Zielen im Leben ist es überflüssig.

Hätte ich das Buch abgebrochen, wäre mir genauso viel im Gedächnis geblieben wie jetzt, wo ich es beendet habe.
Nämlich nichts.
Eine Nabelschau ohne Mehrwert, in der Lena in mir noch nicht einmal dann Mitgefühl geweckt hat, wenn die geschilderte Situation es eigentlich erfordert hätte. Ich finde Lena unreif und undiszipliniert. Was sie erlebt, ist grob das, was alle beim Erwachsenwerden erleben und es wird grundlos gehypt. Spart euch die Lektüre.

Das ist jetzt nicht wahr, oder❓

Bei Stunde 5 und 20 Minuten erklärt sie nicht wirklich jemandem, von dessen Bart-Mode ich noch nie irgendwas gehört habe, dass die Tatsache wie er seinen Bart trägt und offenkundig nicht pflegt, ein offensichtliches Zeichen dafür ist, dass er emotional aus dem Gleichgewicht geraten ist.

Öhm.

Buechersuechtling @julesG Nein, das brauchst du wirklich nicht. Es ist zwar nicht besonders ärgerlich, es zu lesen, tut also auch nicht „weh“, aber mein Geschmack bzw. jemand meines Alters erkennt darin nur ein Mittel zum Geldverdienen. Es ist ansonsten leer und nichtssagend. Es hinterlässt einfach keinen bleibenden Eindruck. – Doch, vielleicht ein: „Häh❓?“ (edited) 1y

Ich bin tatsächlich an dem Punkt angekommen, an dem das Buch entweder besser wird oder ich mich daran gewöhnt habe.

Ich sehe ein, dass ich alles bin, nur nicht Lenas Zielgruppe, trotzdem erstaunt mich (ebenso wie ihre Eltern) die Handlungsarmut und die Tatsache, dass sie Erfolg hat. Inzwischen habe ich gelernt, dass sich an ihr die Geister scheiden und sie mitnichten das „Sprachrohr“ ihrer Generation ist. Aber ehrlich, warum sollte sie auch❓

Ich habe jetzt knapp 2 Stunden gehört und habe mich währenddessen immer wieder gefragt, ob das, was Lena zu erzählen hat, meinem früheren, eventuell ebenso unsicheren Ich weitergeholfen hätte.

Ich glaube es jedoch nicht, weil die Erkenntnis, dass etwas falsch läuft oder man sich als Frau zu viel gefallen lässt, aus einem selbst kommen muss. Das ist der Kern von Persönlichkeitsentwicklung – und die ist in diesem Buch noch nicht auszumachen.

Es mag (vor)verurteilend sein, aber ich frage mich, was es wohl sein kann, das eine Mitte 20-jährige „im Leben so gelernt hat“, das so bahnbrechend ist, dass es alle Welt wissen muss.
Ich sage nicht, dass es nicht sein kann, dass es „lange“ dauert bis man als Frau so gefestigt ist, dass man sich aus dem Bedürfnis heraus angenommen zu werden, nicht mehr alles gefallen lässt. Hat man jedoch zu sich gefunden, braucht man Lena nicht mehr, denke ich.

Nora Tschirner ist die perfekte Vorleserin dafür. Inhaltlich weiß ich allerdings noch nicht genau, was ich davon halten soll.

Lena macht es mir leicht, mir überlegen vorzukommen. Bisher fokussiert sie sich auf Sex und erzählt wenig über ihre konkreten Lebensumstände, was es schwer macht, ihre Erzählung einzuordnen. Stellenweise verhält sie sich sehr naiv und scheint auch mit zunehmendem Alter wenig Reife oder Selbsterkenntnis gewonnen zu haben.

Ehrlich: Ich habe keine Ahnung wer Lena Dunham ist und von ihrer Serie habe ich auch noch nie gehört. ? Aber in letzter Zeit begegnet mir Lena Dunham überall. Scheint, als sei sie das neue Vorbild für junge Frauen oder so. Keine Ahnung.

Auf das Hörbuch bin ich in meiner Onleihe zufällig gestoßen. Es hat dort zwar keine guten Bewertungen, aber ich will mir von dem neuen „Star“, den man wohl irgendwie kennen muss, ein eigenes Bild machen.

By finishing this book, I completed my Goodreads goal for 2018.

It was really an anti goal bc I‘ve found that in previous years when I was struggling to keep up, I‘d read shorter books just to stay on top of it. This year I‘m only worrying about the #readharderchallenge and not quantity.

I know a lot of people really hate Lena Dunham and this book. I‘m indifferent to her as I really don‘t know too much about her. And I enjoyed this book. It was funny and I found it to be honest and I could relate to her in some ways. There were parts that were a bit slow or annoying, but overall, I liked this one.

I finished listening to this audiobook this evening. I admire Dunham‘s ability to put her self unapologetically out there for public consumption, but I would be lying if I didn‘t admit that some of her stories annoyed me. Some of her stories came off a tad shallow, but at least she does seem aware of her own privilege. I liked her writing style and this book is worth reading if you enjoyed #GIRLS. Overall I give this book a 3/5 stars #JPBookreview

VanChocStrawberry Are there memoirs you would recommend? I typically find them self-indulgent and give up, but I “have” to read one by a celebrity for the Read Harder challenge this year. 2y
Jess7 I recommend Trevor Noah‘s Born a Crime!! Have you read it? It‘s a great one! @VanChocStrawberry or I Am Malala! (edited) 2y

I didn't love it but I didn't hate it like some readers. It is basically all her crazy thoughts shared with the world and some are more crazy than others. I think it grates on people because she is naive at times, but aren't we all, and she seems a bit oblivious to how privileged she is. This is annoying but she is really young to write a memoir and this is the only life she has known.

Alright, I know that there are people that have problems with certain passages in this book. I have always loved Lena Dunham and her work. Her show "Girls" helped me through my 20s. That being said, there was nothing in this book that has turned me against her. I was able to relate to a lot of her essays. My only grievance is that she didn't talk very much about Girls.

Caroline2 Ohhh I loved Girls!! ❤️ 2y
Josie @Caroline2 me too!!! I'm going to watch it all again starting this fall. 2y
mrsthilkey I love Lena and Girls! 2y
ephemeralwaltz I'm currently watching Girls and I've fallen in love with her character! 2y
Josie @ephemeralwaltz one of my all time favorite shows. Dunham gets a lot of shit thrown her way, and some of it she deserves. But I also think people focus too much on her personal life to really see how good her work is. I cried when Girls ended last year. I spent my 20s with them! 2y

I listened to the audio book at work and on my commute, and didn't hate it. There's nothing heavy here, but I did chuckle and could relate to some of those same feelings as a junior high girl, and on into my college years. Sticking with biographical audio books while at work, suggestions?

I have never watched an episode of girls, and barely knew who Lena Dunham was so read this book with no expectations.

Very honest, a lot of tmi, but overall I think she cinched what she was trying to do - to give people an inside look at what life is like as a twenty something in today's world. As a twenty something myself I found it relatable. Give it a shot if you're after some humour and self-involvement!

I can't do it. I am not the sort of person to give up on something once I've started, but I can't listen to Lena talk about who she did or did not sleep with/lie beside. Maybe I didn't struggle in the same ways she did as a young woman growing up (actually that is most certainly true), but for whatever reason, I'm bailing.

My least favorite of the celeb memoirs I've listened to. Lena doesn't have a good voice. I almost bailed on disc 2 bc it was boring. Discs 4&5 were the best & I liked it when she talked about mental health. I wish she'd explained how she'd gotten into a healthy relationship w/Jack instead of explicit detail about the sexual mishaps w/out telling us how she finally got w/some1 who respected her. Her parents sounded dreadful. More on #goodreads

hermyknee Oh I listened to that one on audiobook, too! The chapter where she lists all the food and calorie counts almost killed me. I didn't like it either. 3y
MyNamesParadise @hermyknee omg I will add that to my Goodreads review about it!! She literally talked about that for 15 minutes and I was like are you freaking kidding me?!?!? I didn't realize that the book was technically essays at first & having studied creative writing I could rarely satisfy a workshop class with an essay. Her stories were all over the place & it's like she gathered no meaning from them so why should I? 3y
MicheleinPhilly I felt the same way. I've always been "Meh" on Lena but this was a mess. 3y

MyNamesParadise @MicheleinPhilly I never liked Lena & this book helped reinforce my feelings. Seriously the narrative, if you can call it that, was all over the place & I just wanted it to be over!! I could relate on some of her experiences regarding mental health stuff, but she didn't discuss it enough in a meaningful way for the reader to take something from it. 3y
Cinfhen Yea, I wasn't impressed much either. I don't watch Girls and now I don't think I'd want to after reading her book. 3y
MyNamesParadise @Cinfhen I quit watching Girls after season 2. I just didn't care about it or like it. I'm surprised I watched it for that long. I'm thinking of downgrading my rating on Goodreads to 2 stars lol 3y

I just finished listening to this audiobook. It was nice to hear the author reading the book. The way I felt about this book is the way I feel about Lena Dunham in general. Sometimes I find her profoundly annoying, other times I find her entertaining and intelligent. I appreciate her candour about her mental health issues - parts of this felt like listening to some of my clients. I did not like the biphobic that is sprinkled throughout the book.

MyNamesParadise I'm listening to it now and I have the same feelings. This will be a so-so or pan for me. I started it so I have to finish it. 3y
