fairywhispers's "Books I Totally Do Not Recommend!"

Added 'The Captured Womb: A History of the Medical Care of Pregnant Women' by Ann Oakley — 5 years ago

Don’t buy this book. If you really want to read it, borrow it from the library. This book is boring with a capital B. It is written like a thesis, with lots of long sentences and industry jargon. I struggled to reach page 33. Normally I don’t put a book down before page 50 as I want to give it a fair go, but in this case I have made an exception. The subject matter is an interesting one and The Captured Womb would probably be of interest to med students or professors, but the rest of us should give it a miss.
