perspicacious, charming, indulgent, pretentious, but also utterly unique and moving. ( )

I have really mixed feelings about this book. For the first half or so, I went along with it, reading about Sheila's faltering relationship with her husband and developing her shaky friendship with Margaux. I was repelled by Sheila's graphic description of her relationship with Isaac, then drawn back into the discussion that she recorded about objectification and empathy and activism. My back and forth reaction to the book continued for the rest of the novel, but at the end, I definitely felt unsettled and irritated with the book. Not something that I would pick up for pleasure reading. ( )

I gave it 120 pages to hook me. Lena Dunham became the narrator. Nope. ( )

It's kind of Miranda July meets Lena Dunham (who both offered reviews on the back). I really liked the style, because I do like Miranda July, but ultimately found the voice and main idea kind of pointless. All of the characters were silly and not at all self-aware. Overall a well-written but annoying book. ( )

I do not think this novel knows everything, but Sheila Heti does know something about how many of us, right now, experience the world, and she has gotten that knowledge down on paper, in a form unlike any other novel I can think of.
 
The most engaging part of the novel is the platonic, intellectual love affair between Sheila and Margaux and their respective learning and negotiation of how a person should be - and the problems that manifest when a person "is" or "does be." In one such dip in the friendship, Sheila pings off to a creepy male lover, Israel, who sends her instructions for solo public sex performances according to his lobotomized porn menu. Heti's settling of Sheila's ongoing trials with Israel and the place in which she finds herself - between sex positivism and a pervert's manipulations - provides splendid writing and a striking inversion of assumptions about sexual power and where it lies (and how it can be reclaimed).If such a novel sounds like hard work, it's not. If anything, it's not hard enough work. When you go to this extent to invoke and provoke with form, we want challenging content too, so Heti could have gone much further.Mercifully, in such constrained publishing times, what Heti's brain and fingertips offer are expanded possibilities for what the novel can be and can become. She's on her way to something original and bolder. In the meantime, How Should a Person Be? makes curious and combative company.

There are certain people who do not feel like they were raised by wolves, and they are the ones who make the world tick. They are the ones who keep everything functioning so the rest of us can worry about what sort of person we should be. I have read all the books, and I know what they say: You—but better in every way! And yet there are so may ways of being better, and these ways can contradict each other!
