My Rating: 4/5
Author: Natalia Tlyin
I wasn’t expecting much when I picked up Blonde Like Me. How could there possibly be a book written on the subject of being a blonde? Of course like anything, there is so much more under the surface.
Blonde Like Me is an interesting read from the author’s personal experiences along with symbolism, consumer culture, history and gender.
Some readers may not enjoy this book due to a large portion of Blonde Like Me is from the author’s point of view instead of a book filled with thoroughly researched arguments. I can see why some people may find Blonde Like Me as trivial, shallow and fluffy, it is certainly not an academic piece.
None the less, I read this book in one sitting and found each chapter interesting and thought provoking. You certainly do not need to be a blonde to relate to this book.
