KnitsofLove's review of: She's Come Undone
As the title says, I never actually thought I'd like an "Oprah's Book Club" book. A friend of my mom's was convinced I'd go gaga for it, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I was blown away. I've never read a book that showed me so many things about myself, and helped me understand myself so much better- from a work of fiction! This book moved me, and changed my life. Essentially the book is uncharacteristic of fictional writing. The "heroine" is an obese, emotional eating, complete travesty of a teenager. Her mother has no more substance than a piece of tissue, and her father is just... a jerk. The story is her travel from being the wreck that she is, into realizing how bad it's gotten, and recovering. I'd recommend this book to anyone, it has a different impact to the different type of people who read it.
