The most wonderful, funny, and engaging novel, Woman of a Certain Rage simply danced into my hands and I read with true glee. Eliza has hit middle age and the menopause, as she navigates all that her hormones throw at her, can she rediscover the joys of her youth? I wanted to wriggle with excitement when I heard that this was Fiona Walker taking a writing step in a new direction as Georgie Hall. I completely understand why she is using a different name, as she says on her site: “I don’t want to mislead readers into expecting a big-cast Walker romp”. I genuinely feel as though I have been waiting for this novel, she takes the menopause years and runs with it, with laughter, warmth, and most of all empathy. She explores family life with teens and parents while maintaining a career, a relationship and home-life while the menopause is on the rampage. She made me snort with laughter on a number of occasions, and I frequently exclaimed as I recognised and related with different scenarios. While the midlife years and all the trials and tribulations that come with it sit centre stage, this is a book that can be read right through the age groups. All hail Georgie Hall as she uncovers the menopause with wit and honesty, excuse me while I find a few rooftops to camp out and shout from. Beautifully readable and laugh-out-loud funny, Woman of a Certain Rage is a LoveReading Star Book with attitude.

I thoroughly enjoyed this side splitting read.

This is such a hilarious book that it had me in stitches. So much of this story is relatable, I think that is why I enjoyed it so much. Eliza is going through the menopause all she wants to do is relive her youth but with a husband at home who is more interested in canal boats, Eliza is fed up and what with the menopause side effects and her children she decides to do something about it. But will her decision have an impact on family life? A very funny way of looking at women who go through the menopause. I feel as though this book is trying to normalize this subject that every women goes through, which I think is a good thing.

This is a must read for any woman or man who knows a woman of a certain age.

Wow what can I say this was an absolutely brilliant book and once I had started reading I couldn’t put it down. This was the perfect summer read in the garden at the weekend. This book made me laugh and cry in equal measure and am sure I like many women of a certain age reading this book found it very relatable and completely realistic and true to life. The author has tackled the often taboo subject of menopause and all things related to it in a sensitive and humorous way while at the same time highlighting just how much it makes women struggle. This was a modern day Bridget Jones for sure.

A witty and warm coming of age novel about a woman who has to face up to the reality of aging but who is not taking it quietly!

As soon as I read the synopsis for Woman of a Certain Rage I knew I had to read the book. Wonderfully chatty, this book is about a woman suffering the frustrations, of all sorts, that come with the menopause years. In creating Eliza, Georgie Hall introduces us to a strong woman who knows she is being awkward and annoying but can’t do anything to stop it - and really doesn’t want to anyway. Age is against her. Her body is against her. Her family are against her. And don’t begin to talk about what’s going on in her mind.
