Chris Craddock's Reviews > With My Body
by Nikki Gemmell
Gemmell has a way with words, and she turns her phrases with occasional Aussieisms that really add to the flavor, even if you don't quite know the precise definitions. Though the book has many pages, the short "lessons" surround the words with a lot of white space, so it is not really as long as it seems. Plus, you are carried along by the story, wanting to know what happens next, getting caught up in the breathy prose. I burned through it way ahead of schedule. I would recommend this book to readers of a literary bent, mostly women, but also men who are interested in how women think.
