    1. Купих тази книга за Елица от книжарница с употребявани книги във Вашингтон. Започнах да я чета в самолета, след като всичко друго ми бе омръзнало. Грабна ме много - една жена разказва живота си, кратко, но съдържателно, и със симпатични допълващи рисунки. Впечатли ме как разк [...]

    2. The title is a bit misleading. This is not a self-help book, but more of a fiction tale written in a first person narrative. It chronicles the journey of a naive innocent young woman as she matures, and her understanding of love. Quick and easy read.

    3. At first, I thought What We Do for Love would be cartoony/light reading. As I started reading it, I felt like I couldn't connect with the narrator and I was frustrated that she was doing all of these immature or annoying things typical of women who lack self-worth. The more I read though, the more I realized that Elene Beckerman was kind of taking the reader on a journey into adulthood along with the narrator. Pretty soon, I couldn't put the book down because I was waiting to see what the next l [...]

    4. I am a little behind I my book-reading marathon goals so picked up a few books I should be able to motor through quickly-- this was one of those. This reminds me of the novels I read 30 years ago when I was in my thirties: women's identity/self-discovery books. A sort of journey through lack of confidence and consciousness to entitlement. I wonder if today's thirty-something would even read this book, and if she did, would she relate to the story and the story-teĺler?

    5. I actually listened to this book on tape and I loved it. It was set in a time frame I was not a part of back in the day and I laughed alot at the things that were similar and alot that were different between women then and now. Though it's not suitable for children. I tried to listen to it when she was in the car but then some words were too adult for my 6 year old. Quite Comical though.

    6. This book isn't at all what I was expecting and I loved it. We are subtly taken through Irene' process of growing up and learning about the intricacies and disappointments in life. Things don't always work out and prince Charming is no prince. I recommend this quick read.

    7. I couldn't stand the stupidity of the time period (1950's) between the general attitude towards women and the ditzy thoughts of the main character herself. Way, way too annoying to try and get wisdom or enjoyment from this one.

    8. I read another of Ilene Beckerman's "books" and was rather unimpressed, but this one was much better, had some substance and direction and some interesting characters. It is a very quick read.
