Lena Dunham is "Not that kind of girl"

Updated on April 28, 2015

"I am twenty years old and I hate myself". That's the way Dunham starts off her epic narrative. At first you don't know if you should laugh. Then you realize she has the same insecurities you do. The same self- hatred any young woman has. The more you read, the more random her words become. Suddenly, you are stuck. I couldn't stop reading. Dunham shares her life in a clever and very funny way.

Love and sex. That's her first chapter. You think it's gonna be a raunchy chapter about sexy escapades and hot guys. Well, I'm here to tell you it's not. It is actually real. The struggles with losing your virginity, of rejection, of friendship, and of being young and careless. One embarassing situation after another. One guy after another. It gets better every time you turn the page. She even gives us a taste of her masturbation habits. Yes people, she is just like all of us!

Terribly good advice

This book can even be useful as self-help book, with more than a little humour of course. The anxiety of exercising and dieting. Even the great Lena Dunham is a victim to this problem. We get a sense of who she is and life lessons she lives by like: Never yell at someone else's child. Just talk shit about them behind their back. Or wise advice from her father like: Death is coming for us all.

She shares her hopes and dreams for the future, always with the unique crazy twist Dunham has. This is not simply a funny autobiography. It is a collection of life's struggles and lessons, as werid as they might be. That's the beauty of Lena. You never know what she's going to do next. This book is made for all those young modern women. It represents women in the twenty-first century. What could be better than that.

A must have!

"Not that kind of girl" is the new must have book for every young woman. If you are already a fan of her critically acclaimed series "Girls" there is no doubt you'll fall in love.

A taste of Lena
