Revue de presse

“Geek Girls Unite is the ultimate guide for any girl who identifies with the geekier side of life. It’s a hilarious must-read look into the modern geek and what makes her so cool!” (comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates)

“While geekdom has long been portrayed in pop culture as a boys’ club, Simon catalogues the wide variety of geek girls in this entertaining look at embracing nonconformity...a worthy endeavor.” (Publishers Weekly)

Tina Fey worshipper Leslie Simon crowdsources media obsessions from a ‘guild’ of like-minded women to assemble this peppy survey of comedy, literary, film and music icons, all the while evangelizing on behalf of misfit females. (Wired.com)

Présentation de l'éditeur

For every girl who marches to the beat of her own drum, Leslie Simon has your manifesto: a smart, expansive, and winningly entertaining celebration of comedy queens, film geeks, bookworms, craft mavens, indie chicks, and other all-star women. Following the breakaway hit book Everybody Hurts, Simon’s energizing look at today’s pop-culture and counterculture heroines—like Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, Sofia Coppola, Regina Spektor, and Jenny Hart—is an empowering, eye-opening, and, above all, fun journey. Readers of The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking and The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life will love joining forces as Geek Girls Unite!

Disappointing and exclusionary 27 août 2014
Par Tessa H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've been a geek girl my entire life. The infighting and general turbulence in the geek community has always bothered me. I feel like we should intertwine as one, not bicker as individuals.

I came to Geek Girls unite with high hopes that this was a piece to encourage us to end the arguing and band together, to share our interests, rather than focus on our differences. What I got however, was far different than what I expected.
The author indicates that if you don't fit into her idea of what a geek is, you're not a geek at all. She states that you aren't a music geek if you don't like grunge, aren't a film geek if you didn't like lost in translation.
She discourages the reader from befriending certain groups of people, that she deems to be frenemies: athletes, twilight fans, people who donate to NPR, and Jimmy Buffett fans all make an appearance on the frenemy list.
Geek Girls unite was poorly written, condescending, insulting and demeaning. Don't waste your time to read it.

Misses the point. 10 février 2012
Par L. Child - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Like many reviewers, I had high hopes for this book. There's not nearly enough geek girl materials out there, and the author needs to be commended for coming forward and having a go. Unfortunately I think she misses what geek culture really is.

One of the previous reviewers said it best in "When I think of geeky, my brain automatically zooms to science fiction, fantasy, technology, science... stuff like that. But Simon defines a geek as "a person who is wildly passionate about an activity, interest or scientific field".

To me, that's where the book goes wrong. The science fiction, fantasy, science and technology are a significant part of geekdom. Geek isn't just a passion, it's an understanding and imagination. Whatever gets your inner geek going, you are driven to understand it, and that understanding drives your imagination. A music geek, for instance, doesn't just love music. She understands it, and uses that understanding to infer and imagine something more. That could result in the state of the art being moved on.

Geek is creativity, or a true appreciation of that creativity, taken to the maximum possible level. It pushes the boundaries of understanding and imagination the same way an athlete pushes physical and physiological boundaries. It's not about simply consuming.

Alas, Leslie seems to have looked at the results of geekdom, and got very passionate about them, without really peeking at what's behind it. What's left is an appreciation of the love of cutting edge comics, fiction, film, music, and all the wonderful things in geek culture, without really looking at the geeks who create and sustain geek culture.

What I find really worrying is that an assay of female geek culture has consigned those interested in science, engineering, etc. to a single line in the miscellaneous section, referring to the "nerd girls" group. While it tries to put a positive spin on this, it's not very representative, and many of us know "nerd" as a very negative stereotype. The polar opposite of what the geek movement is about.

That said I love the style, I love the way it's written, and we really need more representation of girl geeks. I really hope that Leslie gets more involved in geek culture and writes a follow up.

Fun, quirky and adorable 12 janvier 2012
Par Lil Berry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Ever feel like you are all alone in this world and nobody gets you? grow up as a fan of video games, a bookworm or just a little "strange" for society? Well Leslie Simon is here to celebrate our unique geekiness with Geek Girls Unite, this book is a celebration for all the female geeks out there.
Leslie takes us on a journey where we explore the geek queendom (because we are not interested in the type of male nerd out there, at least not in this book), the types of geekets that are out there changing and rocking this heart. Leslie has this fun way of cataloging the different types of she-geeks which include the general description, a little bit of history of those great females that made way for us, some representatives, who you might be reading/listening/or trying to imitate and she also has this adorable little section where she plays with the idea of the perfect match for every type of geeket.

This book is fun, quirky and adorable. I love the fact that Leslie didn't go with what she knew but she also openned her book up for other geeks with the magic of the Internet and so this book has the voice of real she geeks out there.
It's a different read, with all the quotes from famous, real and normal men and women embracing who they are. Also the side notes come in handy with words you may not know off and the side notes that are really fun to read.
The only "bad" thing about this book, is that there is this point where Leslie Simon is talking about her own experience about growing up as a geek and how she was treated, and it left me wanting to know just a little bit more. But as you can read it's not really bad it's just me being a baby for not getting things my way.

A bit stereotypical and just okay 13 février 2012
Par endlesswonderofreading - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Okay, so here's the gist of it: I'm a geek. Happily. And I've been looking for books that embrace geekiness in every shape, way, or form. While Geek Girls Unite did this to an extent, I felt that this book was kind of stereotypic as well as surface-level. It wasn't nearly as clever as a book on geekiness should be.

One of the major things that bothered me about Geek Girls Unite was that it seems to cater to those who are just one-dimensional geeks (and I say that in the most loving way), but most geeks don't just fit into one mold. Not all geeks are solely computer/technology geeks, math geeks, music geeks, film geeks, or book geeks, but rather are two or more of these things. Surprising as it may seem, people can be wildly passionate about two or more things. I, for one, cagetorize myself as both a literature geek AND a music geek. I don't get why you would have to be one or the other.

So, if you're looking for a fluffy, cute, and somewhat stereotypic look at geekiness, pick up Geek Girls Unite. If you're looking for an in-depth, quirky book on geekiness and what makes a certain geek, keep moving.

Elementary level geekiness at best 29 octobre 2011
Par martin_r - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I had such high hopes for this book. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. I am very geeky and I felt like this book was an introduction for someone whose aspirations were to be a geek. I was hoping for a book that helped me validate all of my weird interests. Instead I got a book that read like a Seventeen magazine article on how to be a geeky poser. The most ridiculous part of this book was in each section that talked about a different 'type' of geek there was a list of things to look for in a boy with those similar interests. I'm not interested in snaring a geeky boy, thank you very much. This was a ridiculous book that made me angry with every word.
