While I like Polly Vernon's columns and agree with much of what she has to say about 'Hot Feminism' I ultimately found this book pretty disappointing. It has the same kind of feel you get with many a blogger who is handed a book contract - what works in short blog posts/columns doesn't work as a whole book.

Vernon's writing style comes across as a naff and contrived conversations between hip friends/ironic use of 'pop' culture style of writing which really starts to grate. Her attempt to describe a philosophy of feminism comes across more as 'here is how I like living my life; my excuse is it is my brand of feminism; don't judge me I am not judging you, okay'? Which does not a fulfilling read make. While she has some very interesting points about modern identity politics they are lost in the contrived style and attempt to dish out fashion tips. ( )
