Thank you to NetGalley for providing a free ebook copy of Difficult Women By: Roxane Gay in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first book by Roxane Gay that I have read and for the most part it's a pretty good set of stories. I enjoyed how the stories featured all kinds of women from different walks of life. Some of the stories are pretty emotional, which is something that I really enjoy.
However, I will say that some of the stories are a bit dull or just not to my taste. Part of that may be that I did get a little tired of how much sex there is. I could have done with a little less of that honestly. I don't think sex has to be used in everything to make an impact.
Overall Difficult Women is a pretty good set of stories. Since this is the first I've read from this author I didn't know what to expect, but I really love her writing style. I'm glad that I read this one because some of the stories are really fantastic. I would read more by Roxane Gay in the future just for the writing alone to be honest.
I recommend Difficult Women for anyone interested in stories about women with beautiful writing.
