??A powerful coming-of-age story that looks at ambition, friendship, identity, desire, and power from the much-needed female lens." ??Bustle

??Ultra-readable.? ??Vogue 
/>  
From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Interestings, comes an electric novel not just about who we want to be with, but who we want to be.


To be admired by someone we admire??we all yearn for this: the private, electrifying pleasure of being singled out by someone of esteem. But sometimes it can also mean entry to a new kind of life, a bigger world.

Greer Kadetsky is a shy college freshman when she meets the woman she hopes will change her life. Faith Frank, dazzlingly persuasive and elegant at sixty-three, has been a central pillar of the women??s movement for decades, a figure who inspires others to influence the world. Upon hearing Faith speak for the first time, Greer??madly in love with her boyfriend, Cory, but still full of longing for an ambition that she can??t quite place??feels her inner world light up. And then, astonishingly, Faith invites Greer to make something out of that sense of purpose, leading Greer down the most exciting path of her life as it winds toward and away from her meant-to-be love story with Cory and the future she??d always imagined.

Charming and wise, knowing and witty, Meg Wolitzer delivers a novel about power and influence, ego and loyalty, womanhood and ambition. At its heart, The Female Persuasion is about the flame we all believe is flickering inside of us, waiting to be seen and fanned by the right person at the right time. It??s a story about the people who guide and the people who follow (and how those roles evolve over time), and the desire within al… (mais)

As one might guess from the title, this smart, sometimes witty, novel is about gender politics, but it is much more than that. Also featuring into the story are explorations of corporate corruption, friendship, love, loss, hero worship, and the interesting and sometimes difficult interplay of different generations and cultures in the feminist community. A timely, well-developed novel, although occasionally pedantic and preachy — hence four stars rather than five. Still a worthwhile read. ( )

This has been one of my favorite books I read this year! I might write something more about it later. ( )

2.5/5

even if I expected more from this book and it did not deliver, I feel like compared to other books I had enjoyed more, the story will stick with me for a long time ( )

Something about Wolitzer's writing style really is up my alley, but on some level I wasn't completely feeling her characters in this one and that kept me from giving it a higher rating. The book features Faith Frank, a Gloria Steinem type woman who was on the forefront of the women's movement. The protagonist, Greer, meets Faith in college, and this meeting change the trajectory of her life and her relationships with her high school boyfriend and best friend. Usually books I love have tremendous character development and the plot is on the weaker side. In this book, I felt as though there were some intriguing plot ideas involving betrayal, mentoring, feminism, trauma, etc., but the character's reactions to these events didn't quite seem fully realized. I didn't feel their pain (other than in one exceptional scene) really. I was told about it, but didn't feel it. Honestly, how authors make that happen is beyond me . . .but here, I just didn't, so have to put the book in the squarely good category. ( )

Greer Kadetsky met Faith Frnk in October of 2006 at Ryland College, where Faith had come to deliver the Edmund and Wilhelmina Ryland Memorial lecture; and though that night the chapel was full of students, some of them boiling over with loudmouthed commentary, it seemed astonishing but true that out of everyone there Greer was the one to interest Faith.
