#Review of Life Moves Pretty Fast:The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies by Hadley Freeman & #Giveaway via @4thEstateBooks

Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies (And Why We Don't Learn Them From Movies Any More)'Mail-order ham' - New York Times on Steel Magnolias, 1989

'Not worth cutting class' - Chicago Tribune on Ferris Bueller's Day Off, 1986

'Full of canned romance' - New York Times on When Harry Met Sally..., 1989

'A lot of dancing that is comparatively erotic' - New York Times on Dirty Dancing, 1987

Hadley Freeman begs to differ.

For her, American movies of the 1980s have simply got it all.

'I know people who have changed their entire lives because of a line of dialogue from When Harry Met Sally..., and when I say "people" I obviously mean "me".'

Life Moves Pretty Fast is a clever, hilarious and charming defence of our best-loved cult classics - and a much-welcome nostalgia hit.

Hadley Freeman (born 1978) is a columnist and writer for The Guardian, who also contributes to the UK version of Vogue. She was born in New York to Jewish parents, and attended Oxford University. Her first book, The Meaning of Sunglasses, was published in 2008.

I only got a few pages in and I could not go any farther. I'm fine with people stating their opinions but she never tried to atleast show the other sides opinion and why. It came across like she was trying to shove it down your throat.

"All opinions are 100% honest and my own."
