The hilarious feminist account of the female body by the award-winning comedian

'HILARIOUS' Daily Telegraph
'Brilliant' Frankie Boyle
Sometimes Sara Pascoe confuses herself. She gets wildly and pointlessly jealous. She spends too much time hating her bum. And you know what she hates more than her bum? Her preoccupation with her bum. She's had sexual experiences with boys she wasn't really into, but still got a post-coital crush on them. She's ruined brand-new relationships by immediately imagining them going into reverse.
There was so much about her behaviour that Pascoe wanted to understand. So she started researching what makes us - women - tick. And what she read made her eyes fall out of her face. Reader, here is everything science has to tell us about love, sexuality, infidelity, boobs, periods, pubes, broodiness, and clever old fat. Merry Christmas and Hallelujah! Suddenly being a woman doesn't look like such a minefield after all.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Stand-up Sara Pascoe has done a great thing here. She’s written a book that is at once hilarious, proudly feminist and scientifically gripping. And thanks to Pascoe’s warm and witty voice, Animal is the sort of book you’ll want to curl up with before recommending it to everyone—particularly young women. It discusses the female body in gloriously candid detail, using engaging personal anecdotes and carefully debunking evolutionary myths. It’s the sort of sex education that we wish we’d had at school.
Funny and helpful
Thanks Sara x
What a read!!
Funny, informative and well researched.
Absolutely loved it!
Unexpected but brilliant
I purchased this book purely because I enjoy Sarah's work as a comic and as a positive female figure, I didn't read the blurb, I presumed it to be an autobiography.
I was therefore surprised to find that although it had autobiographical traits, it is more so the biography of a female body (Yes I know it states this on the front cover!)
The book covers many topics from attraction to procreation and it's written with wit and fact.
I enjoyed how this book made me consider things in ways I hadn't previously and how it taught me new things. I found myself pausing the book on a number of occasions to further research something Sarah wrote about which I guess was part of the books intention.
A throughly enjoyable read.
