Her essay about trolling is really good, and I hugely enjoy all the interstitials where she quotes emails or texts from her dad. They are fantastic.

Yes, I read the essay about trolling and it was very good, although I rather feel that Lindy West's (in her book "Shrill") was even better. Mainly I'm just so, SO depressed that this is what women have to keep writing about--how to withstand being threatened and insulted online. As if it wasn't enough to plan your whole life so you don't have to walk outside after dark by yourself. Sigh.

I enjoyed that she had a good relationship with her parents--especially her dad--although I didn't understand all the email conversations between she and her dad! You were left with the feeling that he's an interesting dude, though.
