    1. Olivia Fane Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Conversations: 66 Reasons to Start Talking book, this is one of the most wanted Olivia Fane author readers around the world.

    2. Olivia Fane first impressed my with an article she wrote about her fifteen year old self falling on love with her physics teacher. A friend sent it to me (she reminded him of me) and I loved Fane's style ever since. This is the first if her novels I have read and although I still love her literary style, there were elements of this book that disappointed me. I did enjoy conversations, her topics were good, her opinions insightful, varied and humourous. However, just as I would be beginning to ge [...]

    3. I love Olivia Fane's writing. She is so bright and irreverent, so challenging and so lovely, I feel I have been in the company of a deep thinker that loves life. The Conversations are deeply funny but powerfully real. Olivia argues her case and sometimes you agree with her, sometimes you don't. But it makes you want to tell her what you think, and that is the point. I can imagine her saying, Don't tell me, tell your spouse, friend, lover - talk to them! Conversations is sheer fun. Clever, accura [...]

    4. Only a religious woman to write something like this.After reading the first few chapters, it became obvious that the author is very uncomfortable with her own sexuality, while simultaneously too open-minded to physical violence. Her attitude of masochism and sense of inferiority in her relations with men is also evident to the point of nausea.Definitely NOT a good read and, much less, an enlightening one.

    5. Fane invites the reader to think about some of the fundamentals of life and talk about them with others. The topics are fairly 'homely' as in that they stick very much to the interpersonal relationships people have. Nonetheless, I am positive that anyone can feel at least a little bit inspired by the discussions she proposes us to engage in, and that should already be enough.

    6. Wonderful and thought provoking - as it is meant to be. Funny in places and controversial in others, it makes you question yourself and what you thought you believed. Great to read with friends,partners, and would be wonderful for discussions in a book club!

    7. Her honest and candid thoughts of life is very brilliant. I could find some clues about myself through the questions in each chapter. I really recommend this book to people who love exploring their thought process.

    8. Unpopular opinions on many topics. Some I agree with almost wholeheartedly, some not so. Light-hearted, inspiring and thought-provoking.

    9. A really enjoyable read. Not a book to tell you how to think or talk, but one to expand your mind and know yourself a little better. Really fun, and done with humour.
