a return to modesty review//tbr 2013

I can’t tell you how glad I was to finally finish this book!  I had intended to get through it in January but nope, didn’t happen!  However, it was great read and I’m glad I stuck through it.


I’m going to be real and say that I have been trying to review this book for the past few weeks and I can’t seem to get it together!  My copy of this book is filled with dozens of different colored sticky tabs marking all the places I wanted to refer back to when working on my review.  Just looking at them makes me dizzy.IMG_20130520_200400

So I’ve decided not to make any comments except the following:

  • This book is totally worth reading.
  • Shalit’s exploration of the problem of immodesty in our society and the effects and repercussions of certain feminist ideology is thorough and well expressed.
  • It was rather academic and took me longer than I thought it would.
  • Deserves a second go through.  This time, I’ll have a pen and notebook handy to jot down all the bits I marked with my stickies.

Not very informative, I know.  Sorry for being so lame, but I figured any comments were better than no comments at all!

I do plan to revisit this book as I continue my studies on feminism and femininity.  I’m glad I bought it and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject!

Ya’ll stay blessed :)
